Mid-Century Mexicana Wedding in Melbourne

Em and Nick have turned the feel-good vibes up to 5000 today with their chic Melbourne warehouse wedding and its ‘mid-century Mexicana’ theme. I mean, a wedding with a neon “I like your face, loser” sign is going to be pretty bloody special, isn’t it?

Not only is their day incredible to look at, but Em and Nick totally bossed the wedding planning side of things too, and they’ve shared some cracking advice as well as their gorge love story.

“We decided right away that we didn’t want a sit down wedding or a formal venue, because it doesn’t reflect us a couple and what we love sharing together,” Em says. “We shared these decisions with Kate from Good Day Rentals, our Stylist, who then had us put together Pinterest boards of all things we loved that weren’t Wedding related. By the time we were done, the boards were flowing with pins of 90s nostalgia films, Parks and Rec quotes, neon lights, and a lot of things we didn’t see a correlation between. Kate did though because she put together our theme (Mid-Century Mexicana) and had us awestruck. It was the ultimate combination of us as individuals and as a couple.”

An Intimate Lakeside Elopement with a Picnic Reception!

Marjolaine and Julian’s first meeting was your classic love story – at a costume party. He was dressed as a pirate and she was dressed as a banana! “Whenever I think about it, it makes me laugh that Julian decided ‘Tonight I’m going to flirt with the girl dressed as a banana'”, laughed Marjolaine. He must’ve seen beneath her yellow exterior as they’ve been inseparable ever since.

They both live and work in the city, but their favourite past-time is getting lost in nature. Marjolaine was never the sort of girl who had big dreams of a wedding, but she did find herself following wedding blogs as she found the pictures so inspiring. When she stumbled upon photos of a couple who married in the middle of nowhere, alone, without guests, without an officiant – just them, nature and lot of love, she knew that this version of a wedding was one she could get on board with.

Cool, Intimate Garden Wedding… with Dark Witchy Vibes!

Yuta and Artyom met when Artyom was tattooed at the studio Yuta works out of. A few sessions under the needle later, they started talking and, as they say, one thing led to another and the rest is history!

They were married in an intimate garden ceremony at Cultura, Tel Aviv, with a reception for close family and friends in the beautiful yard straight after. Their ceremony was performed by Yuta’s good friend and mentor, and continued with a song from another friend that she’d written especially for the couple in Hebrew!

The wooden deck and foliage walls contrasting with the open Tel Aviv skyline made for an personal yet urban setting that really captured the atmosphere the couple wanted from their big day.

Most of their guests were young tattooed people, many working as tattoo artists themselves, so their wedding party looked especially cool. In fact their favourite part of their day was letting loose after the formalities and dancing with their friends. “After the responsibilities of the evening had passed, we were just surrounded by people who loved us and had come to celebrate our love,” explained Yuta. “It was such a great feeling.”

Rock n Roll Tea Party Meets Music Inspired Winter Wedding

Kelly and Charlie met after exchanging insults (!) at an Indie/Rock night in Soho, so it made perfect sense that music was a big part of their wedding theme.

Married at Rock n Roll Bride fave, The Asylum Chapel in Peckham in January 2018, it was important to the couple that their day was relaxed and informal. “We didn’t want it to feel like a ‘wedding’”, explained Kelly. “It might sound silly but we just wanted a big party with our closest family and friends”.

To do this they eschewed wedding traditions that didn’t feel right to them – including cutting the cake, having a sit-down meal and traditional wedding favours – instead they continued the music theme with a big stack of records by the seating plan for their guests to help themselves to!

Greek Mythology Inspired Elopement in the Dominican Republic

YOU GUYS! Stop everything because you need to see this incredible elopement like NOW. Married in January on Macao beach in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Masya and Sasha, who live in Russia, had a traditional Greek ceremony in the most non-traditional way!

Maysa explains her feelings for her newly minted husband: “We believe that God creates us in two halves. One half remains within us and the better half is disunited. The journey of our lives is to wander through continents, oceans, nationalities, and social status to reunite with our other half. I recognised Sasha as my better half who I had been searching all my life as soon we we met. The feeling came to me so instinctively that I knew he was my soul mate. I have never felt so happy before when I am with Sasha. We are so much like each other that you can say we are our own reflection.”

Rock n Roll Meets Rustic Glam Motorbike Wedding

Brenna and Shawn’s submission was called “dead stuff, gold stuff, black stuff and motorcycles” and we think that just about covers their amazing Rock n Roll meets rustic glam wedding! Having met whilst their bands were touring, it was always going to be a pretty epic celebration…

“Our inspiration was everything we like,” Brenna says, “Gold glittery glam tones and jewel tones, black and bones.” It was also important to the couple that the day was super personal: “Our wedding was at my aunt and uncle’s farmland which has been in our family for generations, and was my grandparent’s favourite place. We spent our wedding night in a hunting cabin that my grandfather and great-grandfather built by hand, that each generation has lovingly updated. It’s a truly beautiful place.”

Brenna looked IIIIIIINSANE in an incredible strapless dress from Oleg Cassini with the most gorgeous metallic floral pattern, before changing into a sequinned fitted stunner for the evening (insert red dancing lady emoji here). Confession – I totally teared up at the photo of her and Shawn, dressed in a smart Men’s Wearhouse suit, doing their first look. Her bridesmaids all wore their own black dresses and sunglasses.
