The Normans wedding venue is instantly recognisable with its insanely beautiful high ceilings and fairy light backdrop.

Plus, there are amazing golden hour portraits captured by Will Patrick Weddings to make this one joy-filled, personal day to pore over.

Knowing that Hannah and Joseph just wanted to be married despite all the uncertainty at the moment fills our hearts with joy.

They got dressed in their original wedding attire (which is incredible), said their vows next to a wooden altar decorated in coral flowers (also incredible), and took a stroll along the beach to capture some amazing coastal portraits.

The Old Kent Barn Wedding with Bride in Off The Shoulder Wedding Dress

BUDGET £25 – 30K

Just 24 hours before Elsie and Nuno were due to get married at The Old Kent Barn, the U.K was put into Lockdown. Even though they had to cut short their wedding day, and some of their family and friends couldn’t make it, they had the best day infused with their Guinea-Bissau and Zimbabwean cultures and were so joyful and thankful to just be married.

Rime Arodaky Wedding Dress and Velvet Bridesmaid Dresses

BUDGET £30 – 35K

The theme for this outdoor wedding was romantic boho, which I think Bethany and Stephen have absolutely nailed with the use of dried grasses, protea flowers and velvet bridesmaids dresses. Amongst all this pretty is the pièce de résistance, Bethany’s Rime Arodaky gown which is embroidered with delicate flowers, and complements the floral decor beautifully. You’ll probably want to get your pinning fingers ready for the DIY copper geometric shapes too. They look immense hanging from the barn reception ceiling.

Old Marylebone Town Hall Socially Distanced 2020 Wedding

BUDGET <£5K

Due to Coronovirus restrictions Shivani and Jiten had to postpone their originally planned destination wedding from July 2020 to July 2021. But as they weren’t living together, they wanted to proceed with their civil ceremony at Old Marylebone Town Hall as soon as it was legal, so they could begin married life. Shivani looked like a goddess in her off the shoulder wedding and blew Jiten away at their post ceremony first look, and those family members that were able to attend couldn’t not be happier for the newlyweds. “COVID has shown us that it’s important to be resilient and spend every day we have together. The wedding was a pocket of joy in a tough year, for us, our family, and friends.

70s Disco Wedding Inspiration with Glitter Balls and Orange Flowers

I’ve been guilty of singing 70s disco anthem D.I.S.C.O whilst putting this inspiration together for you today. It’s such a fabulous era to take inspiration from, with iconic fashion, makeup and colour scheme. All of these symbolic attributes have been accredited beautifully by Kerri at Off Duty Weddings, including floral jumpsuits, sequin dresses and glitter balls. There are even roller skates! And, what could be more representative of the era than warm autumnal hues.
