An Art Deco Wedding at St Pancras Station

Gemma and Jon chose St Pancras Station as their unusual wedding location and were married at the exact spot where they first met for their first date! They were married on the concourse with the trains behind them, and had their reception at Searcys Champagne Bar. They were inspired by the art deco vibes of the location, but also their love of Bowie through their choice of music and the bride’s accessories (Bowie is also their son’s name!)

They spend around £20k, but made lots of money saving choices to keep within their budget. The bride’s dress was, unbelievably, made for her by a friend and cost them just £80. In fact, dry cleaning it afterwards was more expensive! The bridesmaids were in ASOS dresses (a steal at £12 each), the stationery and signage were all DIY and the art deco mirror which they painted the seating plan on was a car boot find. All the frames for the photos and menus all came from charity shops and Gemma collected champagne corks to use as place card holders.

A Moody Glam Black, Red & Gold Cabo Wedding

Inspired by the bride’s flame red hair, Robyn and Michael had a black and gold colour scheme with accents of burgundy for their November wedding. Held at Flora Farms, in Cabo, Mexico, they had a Jewish ceremony officiated by Michael’s stepmother, followed by a glamorously styled yet super informal outdoor reception for their 60 guests,

“The day flew by and I enjoyed every second of it”, Robyn writes. “I could not have asked for a better wedding planner. Gaby and I clicked from the minute we first spoke and she understood our vision and turned it into everything I wanted and more. She was our biggest expense but 100% worth every penny. She was my Xanax throughout the entire process, there for me on the day and even when the night was over, she knew exactly what Michael and I needed. It was meant to be that Gaby came into my life, she felt more like a bridesmaid than my planner.”

A Pretty in Pink, DIY Back Garden Wedding

You probably already know this, but here at Rock n Roll Bride we are pretty much obsessed with pink, so when Amy and Adam’s wedding landed in our submissions inbox we were thrilled! The couple were married at the bride’s mum’s house in September and the entire wedding was DIY. Pink was the very obvious theme, but the bride loves Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, so that was a big reference point for them too,

“We love pink, flowers and general cuteness, so centred the wedding around this”, Amy said. “We also had a few nods to Japan, cats and ethereal fairies. As I am a huge fan of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, we had fans as favours which were a hot commodity!”

Whimsical, Fairy-like & Magical New York Elopement

Jen and Chris eloped on October 31 in New York City. The day was filled with cute personalised touches with an almost whimsical and almost fairy-like aesthetic. However the most important thing to them both having their ceremony in their own way. “Our ceremony was simple and we did not want to have any guests”, Jen began. “We said our vows to each other and promised that we would be together forever. That is how we wanted to get married and we are so happy we did it this way. There was no stress to impress others.”

Jen’s own personal style was the main inspiration for the day and this was reflected in her vintage dresses, flower crown and jewellery and even their ring tattoos that they got done end of the day. “We didn’t strive to make our wedding stand out or be different”, Jen continued. “We just wanted it to be special and fully ours. Our biggest worry beforehand was what the weather would be like! Leading up to the wedding day all of our weather apps were saying it would rain 100%. On the morning of the wedding there was some rain, but once we were ready to go out and get married the rain stopped!”

Red, White & Blue DIY Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf

Trinity Buoy Wharf has one of the best views in London which suited Rebecca and Dave’s red, white and blue themed wedding to a tee. The couple didn’t want the day to be too ‘matchy-matchy’, but they did was cohesive elements to run throughout. The bride wore a stunning red Pronovias dress (from their evening gown range, so less than a quarter of the price of their wedding gowns!), the bridesmaid wore white and Dave and his groomsmen were in blue suits.

Dave designed all the stationery based on the concept of a tube map of their lives (as a timeline), with a line for each of them. The lines came together when they met and formed a single line (their relationship), culminating in the them getting married. Rebecca’s mum made the bouquets and buttonholes using yellow, red and purple flowers with green foliage and she made the cake!

A Winter Wedding Inspired by their Heritage with Just Six Guests

It may feel at odds to be sharing a winter wedding in June, but we couldn’t resist the beautiful yet simple details of Brooke and Matt’s November celebration. if you’ve pushed your wedding back to the winter, or you’re now planning to have a much smaller day, you will LOVE this.

Even before they were engaged, Brooke knew that when she got married she’d never have a big white wedding. “I’m a long time fan of Rock n Roll Bride and I think it was very much down to you that my partner and I had the confidence to make our wedding in a way that truly reflected us”, she wrote (also awww we love this!).

They decided to travel to Yorkshire from where they live in Adelaide , Australia, to have their intimate ceremony at Gibson Mill Hardcastle Crags, a National Trust properly in West Yorkshire. They had just six guests there with them. Afterwards, they returned home and had a bigger reception in Adelaide with 125 of their loved ones.

“We feel like travelling overseas was a pretty big move away from the traditional wedding format”, she said. “We certainly heard that as feedback by many friends and family but it was more than going overseas, everything we did had a reason, a family, cultural or historical tie. When we returned home and showed our stunning wedding video everyone said to us that they understood why we did it that way.”
