Continuing our celebration of Pride month on RMW we’ve rounded up all the fabulous Gay weddings we’ve featured. (And, if you didn’t see them on Saturday we also shared a roundup of all our Lesbian weddings.) As we stated yesterday, weddings are all about people coming together in love and friendship and being proud of who you are and who you love. These stylish grooms not only don killer suits and colourful blazers but also nail all the wedding decor and details. From pared-back minimalist weddings to super-luxe Christmas celebrations, there is definitely a wedding style for everyone.
As Andy & Andrew quite rightly advise “It’s your day. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. Decide the things that are important to you and prioritise those.” So with that in mind they filled their barn wedding with retro postcards from the places they’d travelled and thistles to represent Andrew’s mum Scottish heritage.
Soho Farmhouse was where Christopher & Nathan had their first weekend away together soo immediately sprung to mind as the perfect venue for their nuptials. It’s an idyllic location set in the Oxfordshire countryside. They filled the venue with an abundance of botanical vines, bright blooms and rustic decor, then rode off into the sunset on vintage bicycles. What a duo.
James & Dean look incredibly dapper in tuxedos and fill their wedding with style and sophistication. They arrive by sports car, sip champagne and have a wonderful time with their wedding guests, including their beautiful long-haired dachshund Winston.
We were wowed by Imanol & Miquel‘s pink and green wedding suits which perfectly matched the tropical dried palm leaf altar decor. The day was shared by close family and was intimate and relaxed including lots of homemade touches and a song written and performed just for them.
Brian & Anthony‘s wedding was somewhere between a summer garden party and a music festival. Using hundreds of ribbons to decorate chairs and table plans, and a personalised wedding ceremony that shared the story of their lives together.
Christmas is all about magic and celebrations. So, Paul & Reece ensured their winter wedding was full of both, including Harry Potter table names and a good old sing-song around the piano. Plus, a super-luxe black, gold and white colour scheme and decorations.
Jack & James grew greenery in their own back garden to decorate their minimalist wedding and roped in Jack’s builder dad to create an incredible copper arch. They also chose to mingle with guests before the ceremony sipping on champagne and extending the celebrations.
Guests ditched formal attire for retro t-shirts and wellies at Nick & Ben‘s festival wedding. They enjoyed a BBQ with monkfish and fillet of beef and partied the night away to live music and a DJ set.
Preston & Matthew were inspired by their woodland wedding setting and decided to keep things natural by using lots and lots of pampas grass. They said I do in front of an immense moon gate altar and celebrated under an abundance of festoon lights.
The former Victorian pub ‘The Roost’ Dalston was the perfect setting for Tony & Rob‘s intimate wedding. They had colourful bunting and an incredible Til Death Do Us Party neon sign, all of which was planned remotely as they live in Australia.
Matthew & Adam used to walk their dogs at Sefton Park and love the botanical vibes of the Palm House. They kept the decor simple so as not to distract from the venue’s natural beauty and coordinated their outfits without being too matchy-matchy.
The rather aptly named Freedom Cafe in Durban was the host to Mike & Jay‘s Star Wars-themed wedding. Its relaxed atmosphere and botanical vibes gave this Autumn wedding a summer feel and was decorated perfectly with incredible signs and memorabilia from their favourite film.
Anthony & Nicholas said their ‘I Dos’ in the wonderfully atmospheric venue, The Asylum, before transporting their nearest and dearest in a Gold Regal single-decker to a One Friendly Place to party! They sipped on cocktails, had a cheese tower wedding cake and wore matching tweed suits that were warm, stylish and perfect for their winter wedding.
Darren & Michael looked very dapper in complementing navy suits and matching shoes and socks. Filling their industrial wedding with fairy lights and candles, plus an abundance of foliage and love.
Joe & Jay used all the Harry Potter house colours for their barn wedding. Putting us under a spell with all their incredible details. Each guest had a homemade wand and they posed for pictures next to the infamous Ford Anglia car.
Each year in June the LGBTQ+ communities all over the world come together to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which were protests that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and beyond. Although there is still work to be done in some countries, Pride month is about teaching tolerance, education in pride history and continuing to move forward in equality. Rock My Wedding have recently pledged to our community to do better, be more diverse and represent all love stories. We want to ensure that everybody feels represented and wholeheartedly welcome all your submissions. If you’d like to be featured, then please ask your photographer to submit your wedding using our online submissions platform!
