If Marie Antoinette Had a Picnic Wedding at the Beach

Emma and Will rented a house for their June wedding and the bride’s father married them on the beach. Their friends sang to them during ceremony, Emma’s niece was their flower girl and she choose sequin dresses for the bridal party because she wanted everybody to sparkle!

The bride has a deep fascination with French history and style but getting married in French chateau was not an option so they replicated the look in Maine. “The theme started as Marie Antoinette goes on a picnic, so pale pink, French blue and gold”, Emma wrote. “I collected French porcelain and planned out all the details. Over time we added in more details like cherry blossoms that symbolise hope for us, and we incorporated nautical touches with lobster cookies and oyster shell name cards.”

Vintage Inspired Wedding at the Battersea Arts Centre

Lydia and Nico met through Bumble – “Not the most glamorous of relationship starts,” she laughed, “but I’m sure similar for a lot of couples these days! I was known as ‘Lydia 🐝’ in Nico’s phone for at least a year – which had a double meaning when it came to designing our invitations. I used the iconic bee from the mosaic floors in the Battersea Arts Centre, our venue, but one bridesmaid thought it was to represent Bumble! A happy coincidence.”

The beauty of Battersea Arts Centre was all the couple really needed when it cam eto deciding on a theme for their July wedding. It was also important to the bride to have as much vintage in the day as possible – her outfit was a picture of vintage and family heirlooms, and all of her bridesmaids wore vintage dresses in gorgeous sunset colours. “The floral embroidery in my 1919 jacket provided a starting point when choosing the flowers for my bouquet, the bridal party and the decor on the day. The jacket was originally worn by an English gentleman marrying his Indian wife, which was more than appropriate as my husband is half Indian! Too perfect for words.”

Boho & Rustic Latvian Wedding Inspired By Ancient Pagan Culture

When asked how they met, Laura and Girts always joke that they met on the internet, but really that’s just the beginning of their story. Girts had placed an advertisement on a local musicians page, looking for a rock band to join as a guitar player. Laura saw this and asked him why he would want to join an existing one, why don’t they start a new one instead. “Soon after that a few more musicians joined our crew, besides me, the drummer and Girts – the lead guitar player,” Laura told us. “Very soon something more than just a friendship developed between me and him. The band unfortunately didn’t last, but both our love story and friendship with fellow musicians did.” A decade later and the couple find themselves celebrating their wedding online, which is a nice full circle of events.

The couple planned the two-day celebration themselves, taking inspiration from ancient Latvian pagan culture and infusing it with boho and rustic aesthetics to match their personal style. Laura wore a Katya Katya London dress with Lilimill boots and a flower crown by Marta Egle, who also provided the bouquet and decor flowers. They spent €15,000 with most of their budget allocated to catering and location.

Iridescent Realness: A Super Pink & Sparkly Wedding with BTTF, Harry Potter and Idles References!

Lois and Luke’s love of alternative culture and a desire to stand out from the crowd meant that they had plenty of different ideas to work with for their July wedding day. “I always thought we would have an all out themed wedding,” Lois told us, “but as we have so many interests we couldn’t settle on just one so we decided to incorporate some elements from each.” 

They started with sparkly and iridescent as a colour scheme, mixed with pink to match Luke’s shoes and tie. They then took things from some of their favourite interests; like a Lord of the Rings ring box, a Harry Potter sign, Beatles pocket watch and a matching badge that they both wore to represent their favourite band, IDLES. And that’s how you come up with a wedding theme that’s completely unique to you!
