Today, UK Black Pride turns 15 and we thought that was something well worth celebrating. UK Black Pride provides a safe space for LGBTQ+ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent. Founded by Lady Phyll back in 2005, it has grown into a movement supporting and celebrating the LGBTQ community.
If you’re having a wedding with two brides or two grooms, often the aisle is the biggest cause of stress – do you both walk down? Does neither of you walk down? Who walks you down? What about your outfits?! Do you go matchy-matchy or do you coordinate…?

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!
Confetti cannons, concrete cakes, and the incredible fashion of two brides make this an inspiration shoot with a difference. Just wait until you see Cara’s polka dot black and white wedding dress teamed with a leather jacket and boots. It’s the perfect attire for an alternative or rock n roll bride. As is Jade’s bridal separates and trainer combo.
Not one but two stunning brides in fitted wedding dresses with sleek hairstyles in a sunny Spanish celebration. The beautiful ceremony and reception was held in the grounds of Castell Paraledo in Girona and decorated with hanging glass bottles, candles and divine floral arrangements in hues of pinks and blush. The pontoon lighting lit up the evenings celebration where guests were treated to great food, nostalgic touches and a DJ! This wedding was an effortlessly chic celebration for two beautiful brides.
Woodland wedding venue, Camp Katur in Yorkshire has recently included a Geometric Dome to their setting and it’s just gorgeous! Completely translucent so you can bring the outdoors in, whilst being protected from the elements. And completely gorgeous in its own right with its wonderful structure and uniqueness. Jen from My Pretties has shown us exactly how to take advantage of the space by giving us some gorgeous bohemian inspiration to drool over. She’s hung stars from the ceiling, added a wonderful altar draped in fabric and included the sweetest tablescape full of natural decor. We should also mention models Phousa and Claire who are in fact a real same-sex couple and are just the most beautiful of brides in boho dresses by Rolling in Roses.
