Music-Focused Wedding in Spain with a Bohemian Vibe

Julia and Noel met in 2006 when Julia was living in Seville and Noel had a band based in Barcelona. The band were on tour and Julia went to see them and then they met after the show. Since it was music that brought them together, it naturally played a big part in their wedding, which they described as a being “a little Rock n Roll with a bohemian vibe.”

“Music was such a big focus for us”, began the bride. “We recorded a cover of Ed Sheeran’s Photograph at Noel’s studio which we played this during a slideshow of pictures for our family. We danced to a pre-recorded acoustic version that Noel did of All the Small Things by Blink182. All our friends sang along to it and it was pretty special. Noel also surprised our guests with a live band show with some of his friends right after our first dance during which we both crowd-surfed and I sang live with him, both of which were a first time for me!”

Scottish Wedding with a Purple Haired Bride

Eilidh and Peter had only one thing in mind for their October wedding: To have a damn good party! The day was held at Dalduff Farm in Aryshire, Scotland, and they were very much inspired by their Scottish heritage for their decor and theme.

“We wanted a wedding with plenty laughter, fun, food and frolics with our nearest and
dearest”, said the bride. “What ended up on show was a Scottish barn wedding filled with meaningful vows, beautifully smelling flora and fauna foliage, lanterns and a musical rumpus with our ceilidh band at night. One guest said they felt like they were in a whiskey advert; I liked that.”

“I grew up in the Scottish Highlands on the coast, and Pete in the roving fields of Ballymena Northern Ireland. We both wanted a completely relaxed, countryside-chic vibe, with the flexibility to choose our own ideas. Dalduff Farm allowed this to happen.”

They put a lot of effort into all the little details. “The little details did count”, she continued. “Having the venue for three days, a close friend conducting the ceremony, hiring the farmhouse accommodation, thefirepit with marshmallows, our own bar, sparklers, wild  flowers, winter scented candles, candid photography, confetti cannons, Hog Roasts, wedding feasts, and a band that don’t ‘do’ weddings… that’s what made our wedding special.”

Fifth Time Around Vow Renewal at a Secret Location in Berlin

Mina and Nathan didn’t want their wedding day to be the ‘one big day of their lives’, so instead decided to celebrate their wedding day every single year! This year was their fifth vow renewal (!) and it was the right amount of crazy and weird, laid back and a little industrial.

“We have lived together in many beautiful different places around the world,” began Mina, “but there is something particularly special about Berlin and it’s vibes. It’s a place where it’s seems everybody can choose for themselves how to live. It is an absolutely mixed city, culturally and architecturally, and is a place of contrast and individual perspective. Ugly can be beautiful, chaotic and messy can be perfectly organised, rude can be friendly. All of this was an inspiration to us for our wedding renewal and the reason why we wanted it to be in Berlin.”

Informal Skull Themed Wedding in Manchester

Beth and Martin were together for 11 years before they decided to get married. They wanted their wedding to be a relaxed, informal city wedding with skulls as decorations. They also wanted to focus on everyone having an amazing day. They decided to not have a table plan or a formal sit down meal.

“We took loads of inspiration from Rock n Roll Bride,” explained Beth. “We were on there daily looking at different ideas. All of the weddings featured really inspired us when we started planning, as it was great to see that there were other couples out there doing what they wanted! We also didn’t want the wedding to be too formal as it wasn’t our vibe. We didn’t have too much of a strategy when planning, if we liked it, it was in the wedding!”

Panthers and Pastels Wedding in Hackney

Mel and Tim met when they camped next to each other at Glastonbury and when planning their wedding, their starting point was that they just wanted to have a fun party. They also wanted to avoid anything too formal and ‘wedding-y’. They chose Stour Space in Hackney as their venue as it was relaxed and a little rough around the edges, which they liked. Their wedding was held in the evening, in winter, which further added to the party vibes.

They took inspiration from the 1950s and focused on pastel colours, sequins, kitsch animals and retro typography. Mel explained, “As I had a vintage dress we decided to run with the 50s style. It contrasted well with the sparse, modern venue we’d chosen and stopped it looking too cutesy. We saved endless pictures of 50s fabrics and cocktail menus for inspiration and we were really lucky to have amazing designer friends to bring the theme to life. Gemma created our invitations and little enamel badges, which we gave out as favours. Nat designed all the décor and the dreamy perspex signage; the huge ‘Tim & Mel Say Hi!’ sign now greets people in our hallway!”

Romantic, Industrial Wedding With a Homemade Pink Dress & A Last Minute Venue Change!

When it came to wedding planning, Alice and James worked on finding a middle ground between their very contrasting tastes. They wanted their wedding to celebrate their differences. They looked at colour as a way of showing their different viewpoints and the end result was a mix of a few different themes. They served vegetarian and vegan food, and they had a vegan wedding cake.

“Our tastes couldn’t be more different,” began James, “so we didn’t really go for a specific theme. Our inspiration was using our contrasting tastes to our advantage. Alice loves pinks and mauves, I love navy and greys, so we looked at showing both these viewpoints and uniting it all with a rose gold to match our engagement and wedding rings. Alice loves layers, complex details and decoration, while I am into stripped back, ‘essentials-only’ type of aesthetics. Food and music were also a huge inspiration and something we felt we HAD to get right.”
