We thought it was high time RMW joined in Pride Month and reminded you of some of the incredible Lesbian weddings we've featured. (Don't worry we'll be sharing our Gay couples tomorrow.) Because, weddings are all about people coming together in love and friendship, and being proud of who you are and who you love. Plus, just like the saying #loveislove, #inspirationisinspiration, and well, there is certainly an abundance of it here. Hello, double helping of wedding dresses and brides in killer suits!
If you fancy taking a look more closely at any of the real weddings featured below, just click on the couples name and it'll take you to the article.
Pau & Alex said I do in breathtaking Marta Planella wedding dresses and matching blush pink peony flower crowns. Their ceremony was emotional, and their al fresco reception full of style including white paper lanterns and a love seat for the stunning couple.
Katy & Myrthe show us how to have a rustic celebration in style. They drape fairy lights from Askham Hall’s ceiling, tape fern leaves to the walls and include an abundance of pastel flowers, potted plants and on the day wedding stationery and signs. Plus, they include many traditional and non-traditional wedding day moments like a first look, and brides speeches, all of which was captured beautifully by Erin Browne Photography.
Lucy & Vicki loved festivals so just had to have a festival-themed tipi wedding. They filled it with 100m of homemade bunting, tote bags, seating plans, and placenames, and did things their way, by walking down the aisle together and enjoying pies as part of their wedding breakfast.
We were in absolute awe of Georgie & Gemma's barn wedding. Filling the reception with a huge macrame backdrop and favours. Plus, wishbones for every guest that the bride's grandmother had been collecting for over 40 years. Also, how about those flowers?! A gorgeous array of colourful blooms.
Victoria & Eva instantly wowed us with their incredible Watters wedding dresses. Each one individually perfect for their personalities, and together beautifully complementing one another. Their wedding was the first time their families had met, but there were no inhibitions as they partied into the night.
Natalie & Melissa said I do by the pond at Micklefield Hall and it was every bit as picturesque as you can imagine. They also bought along with them their pet dachshunds and had singing waiters entertain guests during the wedding breakfast.
Ana & Elena complemented one another in fitted wedding dresses and sleek hairstyles for a sunny Spanish celebration. The beautiful ceremony and reception was held in the grounds of Castell Paraledo in Girona and they decorated it with hanging glass bottles, candles and divine floral arrangements in pink hues. This wedding was an effortlessly chic celebration.
Cath & Anna took full advantage of the grounds at Coed Hills in Wales and decorated the barn reception with an abundance of rustic details. Taking on many DIY projects themselves including making a doughnut wall.
Carla & Kadeine had a city wedding at The Asylum in London with hundreds of candles, fairy lights, and ribbon decorating the iconic altar. Each bride was true to her own style opting for a Flora wedding dress and a navy bridal suit. They celebrated their union with German favours and Jamaican food to represent both of their cultures and everyone was full of smiles.
Gemma & Kara's wedding is brimming with inspiration and advice including a monumental naked tipi altar, plus lots of tips for hosting your own outdoor wedding.
Alice & Sinead said their I Do at Islington's Town Hall then celebrated in the local pub with paper lanterns and fairy lights strung from the ceiling. Plus, a cheese tower wedding cake and lots of polaroid pictures displaying their life and memories together.
When Emillie & Ruth first started dating they spent a lot of time on the Southbank overlooking the Thames, so when they found the Greenwich Yacht Club it was the perfect venue for them. They really wanted to make the day about the things they love so began crafting a lot of DIY. They did everything from the woodwork, graphic design, baking, sewing, and folding 3000 origami boats!
Sarah & Kate are from England and Australia so always knew they wanted a destination wedding somewhere in between. They found the gorgeous Villa Mia in Koh Samui, Thailand, and had the intimate ceremony they always dreamed of right there by the beach!
Jessica & Claudia's engagement shoot in Brighton was fun, natural, and full of fierce fashion. The images perfectly reflect their personalities and are a lovely reminder of this special time.
Ailbhe & Rachel filled their Ireland wedding with Hollywood glamour and vintage wedding decor including typewriters, birdcages, and suitcases. They look incredible in lace wedding dresses, and thanks to the referendum in 2015 were able to get married in front of all their family and friends.
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 toward equality. Rock My Wedding has 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!
