Vanessa and Dimitri were married in September 2015 at Cantine Pitars with an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding – the Tim Burton version!
To organise this, they approached Silvia, wedding planner at Chapeau Venti, who worked wonders with their 12,000 Euro budget.
Nicole and Roshan’s civil ceremony and reception at Paradise By Way Of Kensal Green, London is the perfect example of a Way Out Wedding: no theme other than ‘everything we love in one go’.
Their main priority? Plenty of fun. The bride tells me,
“We wanted our family and friends to be relaxed and happy, and not feel like they had to be on their best behaviour. We had lyrics from the Baywatch theme tune as one of the readings – I’m a huge David Hasselhoff fan! It was funny to see our friends start laughing as they realised.”
The couple chose their venue after enjoying some great nights out there.
“Each time, we would discover an ornament or painting we hadn’t seen before.”
Definitely keep your mind open to venues because today almost anything goes. And what better place to marry, or have the reception in at least, than somewhere that is special to you both? It will be familiar, personal, and will take on an extra special meaning for ever…
Nick and Jessica married in September 2015. Jessica says of the day, “our theme was kind of a mash up of things we liked.. mainly Sailor Jerry and tattoos.” There are so many gorgeous details (my favourite being the skull candlestick on the ceremony table), and loads of styling ideas to inspire you. And the coolest thing is that they did all of this on just £4,000!!
Scott and Angus’s wedding was a three-day surprise adventure with their guests. “We both had never been to Iceland before, and the majority of our guests hadn’t, either. We didn’t tell the guests anything – only time and location of where to meet in Iceland, and where we’d drop them off at the end of day three. Everything else was kept secret…”
This wedding is just amazing!! Incredibly ambitious what with its top secret itinerary, overseas destination, and a LOT of DIY – that’s a lot of moving parts, as they say. But it was pulled off with absolute brilliance, and just looks like the most fun ever!! Even the place where the ceremony was held is spectacular…
“We did the ceremony outside on a black beach next to an old US military plane wreck which is private farmers’ land. We loved this idea as we had seen the amazing backdrop photos online, and loved how original it was.”
WOW for ever!!
DIY fans, listen up – this gorgeous wedding has sooo much arts and crafts! And it was planned in under three months, so you can see, not only can it be done, but how beautifully it can be done. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you bring the day together as a team of family and friends, like Sarah and Craig here did, it’s going to look and feel super amazing…
