If you saw our Lesbian and Gay wedding roundup articles that we’ve posted over the last couple of weeks, then maybe you saw this LGBTQI+ wedding article coming. If you didn’t, then lucky you! You’re in for a treat. The sheer amount of inclusivity offered is one of the best things about the LGBTQI+ community. Regardless of how you express your gender or sexuality, there is a place for you within the community. This is a feeling of welcomeness that for years was not available to so many people around the world.
The couples included in this article fall outside the margin of gay/lesbian. So, they get an entirely different roundup, dedicated to them. They deserve it! Every wedding you’ll read about brings style, high fashion, gorgeous aesthetics and inspiration for all. We’re here today to celebrate Pride (every day, not just in June) by giving you some incredible LGBTQI+ wedding inspiration.

PEARL HEADBAND WEDDING ACCESSORY
Pearls are absolutely timeless. As was Freya and Charlie’s stunning and stylish ceremony, featuring the most glorious pearl headband. An industrial city wedding in Brixton at our Recommended venue 100 Barrington Road made for an absolutely stunning LGBTQI+ wedding. Not to mention the forest green satin bridesmaid dresses. These gorgeous gowns are from our Recommended supplier Rewritten, tying together the vintage and industrial aesthetic perfectly. Huge thanks go to Recommended photographer Joshua Gooding Photography who captured the love, class, and boho details.
AUTHOR JUNO DAWSON’S WEDDING
British transgender activist, author, screenwriter and journalist (what a list!) Juno Dawson had a spectacular LGBTQI+ wedding at the historic Charleston House. They were also the first couple EVER to be married there! Juno & Max were surrounded by love, laughs, and Spice Girls. What more could you want?! Juno’s dress was inspired by the gown from Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. The wedding was giving gothic fairytale vibes all day long, topped with Troll cake toppers. We can't make this stuff up!
BRITISH-CHINESE DESTINATION WEDDING IN MENORCA
We didn’t know we needed a British-Chinese-Mediterranean wedding until now. Alice & Mel tied the knot on the gorgeous island of Menorca. Instead of avoiding drama and eloping, the two embodied their ceremony’s love, unity and pride. They brought in a Drag Queen, fake Dolly Parton $100 bills, and a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony into the mix. It’s safe to say everyone in attendance had the time of their lives. This stunning LGBTQI+ wedding is a perfect reminder to be true to yourself in love. Mel had given up on the dream of having her mother at her wedding. SO when she did turn up and was caught crying tears of joy during the tea ceremony, it was a truly heart-warming and vital moment.
TWO BRIDES AT CRAB AND LOBSTER WEDDING
Are you a fan of two stunning brides, a drag queen DJ, Rolls Royce’s and a Sunday roast? Then Annie and Emma’s beautiful wedding at Crab and Lobster is a YES for you. According to the couple, everybody was able to let their hair down, be themselves 100%, and have a fantastic time. Both dresses were spellbinding, and the rays of sunshine shining down throughout made it a Summer LGBTQI+ wedding to remember. Side note: No crabs or lobsters were hurt during the process of this gorgeous ceremony.
HOTEL MARINCANTO DESTINATION WEDDING
Italian destination weddings are all the rage - and for all the right reasons. Francesca & Virginia’s intimate 20-person ceremony at Hotel Marcincanto is yet another reason to start saving… With autumnal colour schemes and fiery terracotta florals, this LGBTQI+ wedding was tear-inducing in the best way. If you (like most people…) want some Italian destination wedding inspiration, we’ve got your back.
So there we have it - a brief roundup of some stunning LGBTQI+ wedding inspiration.
Pride (as well as every other month) is incredibly important to so many people. We will continue to say this until the end of time. Commemorating the Stonewall Riots in 1969 that paved the way for gay rights around the world, communities far and wide come together to celebrate what has been achieved. Of course, there’s still a lot to be done - we don’t live in a perfect world. But we want to shift the focus on what has been achieved, rather than what is still to be achieved. This roundup exhibits some beautiful, real and true love. We at Rock My Wedding are forever trying to show and encourage this. Our ethos remains the same - your day, your way.
We are constantly trying to ensure that everybody feels represented, and we wholeheartedly encourage submissions from everyone and anyone. Would you like to be featured? Let your photographer know and ask them to submit your wedding using our online submissions platform. Make sure to also have a look at our latest Diversity and Inclusivity update.
