If you're into rainbow weddings, you've gotta check out Simon and Petra's color-infused, rainbow-central, DIY love fest. They got married in the registry office of Andover, UK, before they partied at a local community center. Check out the prismatic bouquets (which Petra totally made herself), be in awe of her own red-and-white brooch bouquet, and — oh my WOW — Petra's nails. Those tiny lil hearts took three hours to paint! Aaaaaaaand they match the cake. BONUS.

But stick around, y'all. Let's hear it for Simon's white tux with black lapels and polka-dot pocket square. And wait till you see his shoes. I'll take them in a size 11, please.

  1. I read this site and another wedding site very regularly, and I have rarely, if ever, seen a couple so utterly smitten with each other. These pictures all radiate love.

  3. Petra just radiates elegance and fun! In my wedding planning, I often felt I was choosing between what looked beautiful or elegant and what was energetic and fun. Petra is completely rocking both – beautiful, feminine, joyful and fun. Terrific!
