Colourful Theatre Themed Wedding with llamas, Alpacas & a Pug

Bringing their musical love of musical theatre and colour into the day, Kayley and John were married at Deepdale Farm over the summer. They also had a number of very special guests, namely their pug, Frank, and a llama and alpaca who joined them for photos! All the decorations were designed and made by the couple themselves. Their particular favourites being the banners with musical quotes on.

“We bought a big roll of fabric, cut out each banner and acrylic painted the quotes”, Kayley explained. “We’ve got one up in our living room now to remember the day. We also created ‘theatre programmes’ for everyone who came to the ceremony which had ‘cast’ photos in (our families and wedding party), our story, a series of photos we had done at Sunderland Empire Theatre, and a collage of all the shows we have seen together. They also had a little bit explaining about the favours we had. We donated to the Mind charity to get sunflower seeds for our favours as mental health is a big part of our life and something we care a lot about.”

Opulent Tim-Burton Inspired Wedding with a Pink Fishtail Dress

Kacii and Jay Jay married at Mansfield Traquair, Edinburgh. Known locally as ‘Edinburgh’s answer to the Sistine Chapel’, the exquisite, neo-Romanesque former church was an opulent setting for their March celebration. The couple made it their own, wanting a more casual, fun affair than is usually held there, so they eschewed the traditional expectations and did things the way they wanted! 

Instead of a traditional, sit-down wedding breakfast, they had a buffet, with all their favourite food; mini burgers and chips with curry sauce! They took inspiration from Tim Burton and Alice in Wonderland with coloured fairy lights, a blue and purple vegan cake with three different chocolate based layers and colourful unique outfits that represented them better than the usual ivory and white.

They wanted a simple, intimate experience for their wedding day so chose to elope to Glencoe in Scotland while they were on holiday in Europe. Sandwiched between adventuring around Ireland and Iceland in May 2019, they kept everything focused on using the beauty of their surroundings to capture some really unique photo opportunities!

Maximalist & Eclectic, Jew-ish Wedding Inspired by Disco, Interior Design & Cannabis

Kate and Ari were inspired by so many things for their August wedding in Detroit; bright colours, flowers from their local market, a neon pink leopard print pillow Kate spotted on Instagram… Interior design hashtags on Instagram also played a big part in the inspo for their day – mostly mid-century modern and postmodern design, as well as maximalism, the 19070s and eclectic style interior design. 

“As corny as this sounds, I also got inspiration from our relationship,” said Kate. “Items, design and colours that conveyed the way Ari makes me feel. For example, I’ve said a few times that he makes my heart and soul feel like they’re both listening to disco music, smoking a joint and wearing sweatpants on the couch – this got me thinking about disco balls, which ultimately ended up being a big decor element of our wedding.”

“And last but not least, I found inspiration from cannabis – the actual appearance of the plant itself, and ideas that I’ve come up with and solidified while medicating.” As a chronic illness sufferer,  cannabis is a huge help not only with Kate’s symptom management, but it’s also with accessing the creative part of her brain that is a bit more difficult to use when she’s having a symptom fare up.

A Romantic Gothic Vampire Wedding in London

Lovers of all things dark and macabre, Clair and Tony, had a two day wedding in London in September. An intimate ceremony with just 14 guests, held at Marylebone Town Hall was followed by a pub lunch and the next day they had a big vampire themed party for all their friends and family!

Clair’s Morticia-esque dress was from Moonmaiden Gothic Clothing and she wore with a corset by Corset Story. “Every day is Halloween in our house so our wedding really was just an extension of our everyday lives”, wrote Clair. “A traditional type of wedding just wouldn’t have suited us so it was natural for us to choose this type and we both had the same ideas of what we wanted.”

Not Another Wedding: A No Fucks Given Las Vegas Vow Renewal

You probably know Sophia Hilton already – bad ass business babe behind the iconic Not Another Salon on Brick Lane. She even has her own series on BBC Three (I’ve definitely not cried watching those makeovers… Oh no ma’am). Married to Jorel for five years, the pair decided it was time to celebrate so zipped over to Sin City for a vow renewal to end all vow renewals.

Look up ‘Rock n Roll wedding’ in the dictionary and there will be a photo of these two right there.

“We met in the back of a taxi, drunk, at 6am”, Sophia told us. “Shortly after, we moved to Madagascar together to volunteer for six months. We then moved to England, got married, opened a hair salon and had a baby. We are now planning to adopt. We decided to renew our vows to have the wild version we couldn’t have with the family the first time. Going OTT together was so fun. Having our reception at Sapphire Strippers was super funny, I mean Jesus, we did everything not be parents for one night and really lived a fantasy life!”
