Dark & Twisted, Australian Elopement with Halloween Touches

Tara and Matthew moved away from tradition for their October wedding, instead embracing their own style to help craft the wedding day of their dreams. They weren’t interested in having a big wedding, so decided to elope (with a couple of carefully chosen close family members) opting for an all-in-one package from Goosewing Cottage in the Hunter Valley, and making it their own with special details.

They took inspiration from their wedding date – October 31st – and added a few Halloween touches in the form of pumpkins, hand-carved by the couple together the night before the wedding, and Halloween masks and candy for their reception. The pergola they were married under in the grounds of Goosewing was decorated with fresh flowers, and animal skulls.

Retro & Rustic Summer Wedding

Faye and Jay wanted their day to be fun and colourful with good food, friends and music. They served pizza and garlic sauce for their evening food (which, unsurprisingly, went down a treat) and they had garden games such as giant Jenga and space hoppers as their post-ceremony entertainment.

“The wedding was chilled, relaxed and so much fun because we did it our way instead of the way a wedding ‘should’ be”, said Faye. “We hired a DJ that would play only our music instead of the usual wedding cheese (no Ed Sheeran or Take That for us!) We were also crazy anxious about everyone watching us dance so, for our first dance, we got ALL of our guests to join us on the dance floor to Arctic Monkeys.”

A Dark Medieval Fairytale Inspired Elopement

On October 6th at The Lost Village of Dode in Kent, Natalie and Maxx acted as models for a Snow White and dark fairytale themed wedding shoot. What started as just a pretend handfasting ceremony ended up being really moving and emotional for the couple, so they decided to actually make the commitment for real!

“On the day, a joke turned into a look, which turned into a ‘Shall we?'”, explained Charlotte, who organised and styled the day. “And before we knew it an all kinds of beautiful actual handfasting took place. It was really special and very intimate, no planning just a big fat ‘Lets do this!’ After this, the whole shoot took on a party feel a proper celebration of these amazing people – It was like it was meant to be with every aspect of the styling suiting them perfectly.”

An Informal House Party Wedding in the Czech Republic

The words ‘relaxed’ and ‘informal’ are thrown around a lot in the wedding world, but if there was one wedding that truly epitomises what that might mean it’s Kristý and Esteban’s. Married in Czech Republic on the steps of the Hora Matky Boží monastery, what followed had all the makings of an epic house party rather than a wedding!

After the ceremony they all piled on a bus and headed to a local funfair and following that there was a party in a house in the nearby village. They had a Mexican BBQ made by Esteban and his brothers , they smashed pinatas and they danced and partied into the wee hours.

Pretty in Pink: A Tropical Meets Junk Food London Wedding

Lucie and Tommy’s London wedding was inspired by the bride’s love of pink, their mutual appreciation for the tropical aesthetic and the 1950s, and London, where the day took place. The bride arrived at Hackney Town Hall in a pink Cadillac, her bridal party all wore pink dresses from Coast and their reception decor was all shades from pastel to fuchsia and everything in between. They served their favourite junk food (burgers and Domino’s pizza!) and had one hell of a party!

They chose Core Clapton for their reception. a lovely blank canvas of a venue with a domed white ceiling and lots of space to get creative with the decorations. DIY wasn’t their forte, but they did pull the vision of the day together themselves.

Seventies Western Elopement on the Outskirts of Las Vegas

Listen, if loving Vegas elopements is wrong then I don’t ever want to be right. When Audrie and Morghan decided to get married, they knew early on that a big, fancy, expensive wedding was not for them. They wanted to do things entirely on their own terms (and on their own!) and so Vegas was the perfect spot for them.

Inspired by (in their own words) sexy, seventies vintage cowgirls, they planned their wedding with a $5000 budget (which included the honeymoon!) and a goal to have a wedding that would kick their marriage off as they meant to go on.
