Intimate Las Vegas Wedding with a Black Dress & Neon Green Veil!

Christine and Eddie’s elopement is like a lot of the Vegas weddings we feature in so much as they had a quickie quickie chapel ceremony and spent the afternoon waltzing around the city taking fabulous photos. The thing that really made their day stand out to us though was Christine’s INCREDIBLE one-of-a-kind outfit, it’s not every day we see a bride rocking a (home made!) neon green veil!

They were married in August at A Little White Wedding Chapel. “The idea for our wedding was for it to be Vegas, fun and intimate”, said the bride. “We honestly did not use much for inspiration, we wanted to just do our own thing and do it in a way that we would love and remember. We wanted to keep it about us and just have fun with it.”

“I definitely think our outfits were very unique. They are not something that a bride and groom normally wear. I always loved the idea of having a black wedding dress and my green veil was  just green tulle I bought and put in with bobby pins! Eddie’s gold suit went perfect with my black dress and the wedding location. I also had a necklace made that says ‘Edine’, which is the couple name we gave ourselves.”

DIY-Heavy Sunshine Yellow Summer Picnic Wedding

If this wedding doesn’t turn your frown upside down there just may be no hope for you. Looking at these sunshine-filled shots almost makes me feel like its actually summer outside.

The wedding in question belongs to Carmel and Killian who were married last July on Rosedew Farm in South Wales. “Our wedding was inspired by British summer fairs and picnics”, began the bride. “Luckily it was the best summer that we’ve seen in years as well so it was perfect! We love how much we did for ourselves, it was really hard work but it paid off in the end and everything just felt that little bit more special that we’d put our heart and soul into it all. Literally everything, even down to the napkins, was hand made.”

With a budget of £10,000 (although in reality they spent closer to £14,000) they saved lots of money by having the bride’s dad do the catering (what a champ!) They also saved on Carmel’s dress (a vintage find that was only £60!), by everyone doing their own hair and make up and by the bride making the bridesmaid dresses herself! Their cake that was gifted to them by friends and they made all the stationery and did all the flower themselves too.

A Photo Shoot Turned Surprise Wedding!

Brittney and Caleb has a huge wedding planned in downtown Dallas. Almost everything was in place but it was all becoming too much so they decided to cancel and elope instead. Working in the wedding industry as a make up artist, Brittney then had the idea of pulling together a photo shoot with some of her industry contacts where they’d actually get married for real!

Audrey of Something Bloomed, is a florist who Brittney works with often anyway, so she brought her in to help pull together this ‘shoot’. “Audrey and I had already been planning to do a styled elopement shoot together, so after we cancelled our big wedding, we realised that everything we were planning fit in with my vision of a perfect elopement anyway so we decided to just get married FOR REAL and use us instead of models!'”

Book-Themed Budget-Savvy September Wedding

Although it doesn’t look it, Jennie and Alex only spent £3000 on their September wedding. They were as thrifty as possible and made some really clever choices to save as much cash as they could. They were married at The Athenaeumy in Bury St Edmunds and had their reception at Risby Village Hall.

The bride’s Grace Loves Lace dress was bought at a sample sale and she paired it with vintage shoes that had belonged to a friend of her mum who wore them to her own wedding the same year Jennie was born!

Other money saving items included the cake, which was made by a friend, the bridesmaid dresses because they were chosen and purchased by the bridesmaids themselves, and the flowers that were bought from a local market stall and arranged bu the groom!

Las Vegas Elopement with a Neon Museum Ceremony & a Ghost Town Photo Shoot!

Terry and Jess said their vows in September at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas followed by photos at the iconic Seven Magic Mountains and Nelson Ghost Town. Their wedding was just the two of them, and they actually only their parents that they were going to get married just before they left for their ‘holiday’.

“It was just us, our lady officiant and our awesome photographer for the day”, they said. “We stayed off the strip and headed out into the desert for photos at Nelson’s Landing, Seven Magic Mountains and a dry lake bed. It was eight hours of dry, sandy hotness topped off with Mexicana grub at Nacho Daddy!

Vintage Style Railway Museum Wedding with an Indie Disco & a Red Wedding Dress!

Chris and Ashley knew they wanted a quirky venue for their wedding but weren’t willing to compromise on food, and the National Railway Museum in York ticked all those boxes. Featuring a fine dining menu, a vintage train carriage and a twinkly light backdrop, it was perfect for what they wanted! In fact with such good decorations already in place at the museum, the couple felt it needed very little in the way of further decor – they had just centrepieces, light up letters and cherry blossom trees to dress the reception area.

One decor project the couple did complete was a memory board for Ashley’s parents and Chris’ grandparents, who were very much missed. They printed favourite photographs and strung them to an easel to be displayed prominently throughout their reception. Ashley also incorporated memories of her mum into her day by wearing her St Christopher and a headpiece of hers. Her dad, who sadly has Alzheimers so wasn’t able to attend the day, used to be a clock maker, so she had a clock embroidered on the back of her dress as a token for him.
