Warning: this is NOT your average wedding – this is much cooler!

Just look at these amazing pictures of this incredible wedding, by Craig of Mr & Mrs.

Colourful Vintage Fun

“We didn’t have a theme in mind at all, it was just a case of if we liked something or thought it would be fun to include it would get bought or hired! Generally the more colourful or kitsch the better! I suppose you could say the wedding theme was ‘Colourful Vintage Fun’. We just wanted a very personal day which was going to be relaxed and enjoyable for our family and friends (and us!). We’re not super formal people, so a traditional wedding with all the formalities just wouldn’t have been right for us.”

Vintage Style Wedding Dress

“My dress was Baroness Pearl by Kitty and Dulcie, a tea length vintage style dress with a fitted bodice and 3/4 length sleeves. It had a bright red bow around the waist and the most amazing full tulle skirt. It cost £345, which frankly was a bargain, even with the dressmaker fitting costs. I must admit, after I bought it I couldn’t wait to get home to try it on, so I tried it on for the first time in the toilet at work! My first priority was making sure I could dance in it, so I had a little boogie before I took it off and returned to my desk!

“The bridesmaid dresses were ‘Penny’ from Dolly and Dotty. I loved the bright colours and fun polka dots, and thought they looked great with the style of wedding dress I’d picked. At £28 they were such a bargain, and so flattering – I think the girls loved wearing them! I paired them with a petticoat too so the skirts had a bit of extra oomph.”

Dramatic, Colourful Wedding Styling Inspiration

This amazing colourful wedding inspiration shoot has to be one of our favourite features this year… just look at it! So bright, so colourful, so dramatic, so bold and so darn cool!

We love these incredible pictures by Matilda Delves Photography. They really capture the essence of fun that this shoot portrays. Who said weddings have to have pastel colour schemes? Who said weddings had to follow tradition?

Fern & Field are the creative geniuses behind this shoot. Their vision was to create drama with colour and they have totally achieved this!

The flowers, clothes, backdrops, tablescapes, stationery, cake (it has hundreds and thousands on it!) accessories, balloons, and the make-up (the make-up is just fabulous) – everything about this styling is fun, fun, fun!

These pictures make us happy and we hope they make you happy too!

Drama and Colour

“It felt like the right time to add more drama and colour to a bridal shoot, and I’m a big fan of Mario Testino’s more colourful and dramatic shoots.

A Bright and Colourful Colony 29 Wedding

Katie Leclerc and Brian Habecost at their Colony 29 wedding

We are absolutely delighted to be sharing with you the fabulous pictures of American actress Katie Leclerc’s wedding to film director Brian Habecost. We love everything about their Colony 29 wedding. The couple’s love of bikes, the dogs in tuxedos, beautiful outdoor ceremony, cool chill out lounge, popsicles, tablescapes to make you swoon, and the cactuses. Oh, and the colours; peach, blush, bronze and mustard – the bridesmaid rock these colours!

We hope you get a tonne of inspiration from this fabulous wedding, and the wonderful pictures by Gideon Photography…

When actress Katie Leclerc and casting director Brian Habecost met on a movie set they hit it off right away. But when shooting finished she went back to Texas and he stayed in Los Angeles.

A Proposal Straight Out of a Movie

They spoke every day until Katie moved back to California, when their romance blossomed. Then, about three-and-a-half years later, Brian proposed in a way that was straight out of a movie.

Katie woke up surrounded by streamers, flowers, lots of balloons and photos from their relationship.

“Brian had decorated the entire house,” Katie recalls. “And since we’d just moved in, there was no furniture, just these reminders of us. Flowers lined the hallway to the living room, where there was a huge banner that read, ‘Katie will you marry me?’ When I saw it, he got down on one knee.”

Fun and Festive Colony 29 Wedding

The wedding was just as fun and festive as the proposal. The couple and their 140 guests ventured down to Palm Springs, California, for a wedding at Colony 29.

Their love of having a blast, being outdoors, riding their bikes, and playing games like Cards Against Humanity were all included in the celebration.

A Colourful Town Hall and Pub Wedding in Islington

Groom with arm over bride's shoulders

The incredible pictures from Leonie and Nick’s fabulous wedding just go to show that you can really have the wedding that you want; a wedding which expresses who you both are.

Fancy a mink coloured wedding dress? Do it – that’s exactly what Leonie did and it’s spectacular.
Want a relaxed wedding reception in your local pub? Go for it. How about your own brewed beer? Oh yeah!

The styling details of this wedding, co-ordinated by London Bride, have an almost art deco feel to them, and the flowers and cake are simply amazing.

Take a moment to enjoy these beautiful images of Nick and Leonie’s super cool wedding, taken  by Lovestuck Photography…

“Nick and I wanted a London pub wedding near to where we first met – a wedding that wasn’t too fussy and our friends could be involved in. Our small wedding we’d originally planned grew to about 110 guests as we couldn’t bear to leave anyone out!

“The look of our wedding evolved from our wedding stationery, which my friend Jess created based on a collage that I made. The colours, shapes and style from the stationery carried through our wedding styling on the day. Paper decorations in teal, coral and mustard shades featured heavily, and my friend Melissa made our beautiful wedding cake, using rice paper to match the design of the collage.

“We married in The Council Chamber of Islington Town Hall, which was really nice as we were surrounded by the smiling faces of our friends and family.

“As our guests entered the pub garden for the drinks reception I co-ordinated the wonderful choir, The Electric Belles, a Brixton based all-women choir my cousin Lizzie sings with. My brother in law, a brewer, brewed a special IPA for us, but it was so good the barrel was dry before I got a chance to taste it!

“My dress was by Matthew Williamson. It was mink-coloured and long and sleek with a bit of a cape at the top – just what I was after. It made me feel like a more glamorous version of myself. On the day I felt a lot more of a ‘bride’ than I was expecting – it turns out it’s not just the white dress that does it!”

A Classic and Elegant Wedding with a Splash of Colour

Duck egg blue and orange cards on wedding table plan

Have you ever seen a wedding with Greek gods as bridesmaids? No, well you are about to, and it’s awesome! Kate and Russell’s wedding was all about elegance, and together with the most beautiful colours of orange and duck egg blue, the styling details are fabulous.

Our thanks go to Neil Walker Photography for sharing these incredible pictures with us…

“Our wedding day was the most incredible day we could imagine. We focused on what was important to us – it’s amazing what you don’t need for an awesome wedding!

“Our wedding theme was classic and elegant with lots of attention to detail, and lots of incredibly generous support from family, friends and contacts meant that we nailed it! A good friend managed all the design, sound and lighting, including surprising me with two Greek gods to accompany me into church! The flowers were fabulous and reflected our colours of duck egg blue and orange, and our cake was gorgeous – cupcakes with a top tier fruitcake and Camper Van topper. It all went!

“Our first dance song was to Ellie Goulding’s ‘How Long Will I Love You’, played by a five piece band. We also asked the band to play first dance songs from other people’s weddings, so everyone relived their wedding memories too.

“We were delighted with Neil and our photographs. His relaxed and natural style meant he got fabulous photographs of everyone, and on the day his attitude was perfect – flexible about any last minute wishes but helping make sure that timings worked and we kept to them.”
