Burning Man Inspired Wedding in Thailand

As motorcycle-loving visual artists living in Laguna Beach, Dana and Michael didn’t want anything traditional for their December wedding. Inspired by Burning Man, they decided to fly to Thailand to have the non-traditional wedding of their dreams – complete with the bridal party in paper elephant heads!

“We wanted to take the opportunity to invite all our loved ones across the world to Koh Samui, Thailand”, Dana explained, “bringing them outside of their comfort zone in hopes of inspiring them, in much the same way that Burning Man inspires us each year. We incorporated details from our story together. Our wild three-day festival of events included ice-breakers across aquamarine waters, an all-white party with an elephant entrance, and the wedding where we asked all our loved ones to be our flowers (dress in floral pattern rather than making more trash) and participate in a Burning Man ritual to help us burn away the fears and hardships of the past, celebrate the now, and walk into the future together.”

Retro, Movie Inspired Wedding in Glasgow

Laura Jane and James wanted to have a fun day out feel to their wedding with a BBQ and lots of music. There was also a strong film theme and they chose some of their favourite movies as table names as well as adding cinema related decor items throughout. “A lot of our early dates were to the cinema and we still spend a lot of time watching films”, said Laura Jane.

They were married at Barras Art & Design in Glasgow. “A lot of our inspiration came from the venue too. The team were so accommodating and amazing with our weird requests, the rest of the wedding just fell into place. The venue is a courtyard with lots of natural light and plants. It helped us decide we wanted a flower arch for the ceremony and decided to give everyone a little cacti or succulent as a favour. They also have a popcorn machine which helped with the movie theme.”

Modern & Bohemian Jamaican Beach Elopement

Becca and Mark met on a random night out, and after connecting on Facebook a few days later, there hasn’t been a day since that they haven’t spoken to one another! Even when, shortly after meeting, Mark was stationed in Canada in the army, they still made it work – and Mark proposed on the day he returned to the UK.

Becca had always dreamed of being married on the beach, so despite being completely indecisive by her own admission, this was the one element of their day that was non-negotiable. They spoke to their families about them getting married abroad; unfortunately they were unable to make it, so the couple decided on a whim one day that they should just go ahead and book it anyway, and have a big party for all their friends and family on their return.

An Enchanted, Luxe Wedding in a Rainforest inspired by A Cinderella Story

Believe it or not, the 2004 rom-com A Cinderella Story was the starting point for the inspiration behind Gary and Amy’s August 2018 wedding day. “I’ve always loved the scene where he takes her for a dance in a gorgeous rotunda,” said Amy. “It’s filled with fairy lights and white roses and looks so magical, so that was the starting point for the vision for our day!”

Combined with Amy’s minimalist yet luxurious style, no expense was spared in making sure everything was perfect for their day. “I wanted luxury,” said Amy, “and Gary was more than happy for me to take lead with style. I wanted a day that looked modern, sleek and luxe. We spared no expense when it came to florals, personal touches and keeping everything stylish. I think the attention to detail really made the wedding what it was.”

Moody Meets Art Deco Wedding with a Dog & Toddler Bridal Party!

They say never work with children or animals but Lane and Amanda threw that, and many other old adages and traditions, out the window when it came to planning their big day – they had their dog, Penny, and Amanda’s son, River, as the only members of their bridal party!

Instead of a first look, Lane and Amanda decided to do a ‘first touch’. They had gifts to give each other, and so stood round a corner from one another to exchange them and have a precious moment together before the celebrations kicked off.

The moment that Amanda had thought about the most in the lead up to their wedding was walking down the aisle. “I definitely thought I would be sobbing and unable to hold myself together,” said Amanda, “but when I saw everyone out there and Lane standing at the end of the aisle, I was overcome with immense joy in the form of hysterical laughter. I just could not stop laughing!”

Autumnal, Halloween & Geode Themed Wedding with Grandma’s Cookie Recipe

Madeline and Patrick wanted their day to be the perfect combination of everything they love. Madeline is studying to become a geologist, so they incorporated lots of geodes, rocks and other fun references to geology throughout their day. “We are also a Halloween obsessed family,” she explained, “so it only felt right to get married as close to Halloween as possible with a bunch of spooky details.”

They included a lot of unique, handmade details from themselves and talented friends and family – from the homemade agate wedding arch by Madeline’s dad to her veil by her mum. They had homemade wildflower seed bombs and Halloween candy bags as wedding favours. They used rocks as place names that they’d spent forever collecting, and hand-lettered pumpkins for signage. Their guests got to drink from a different coloured glass goblet that the couple had spent years hunting for in the thrift stores. They made a Polaroid guest book in lieu of a photo booth. It was important to the couple that they had full creative control over one of the most important days of their lives.
