From the "cheese" cake to the cork board Polaroid guest book, this chic London wedding just exudes style. Originally from New Zealand and America, these two are now living it up in London and taking advantage of all the craft beer, Prosecco, gorgeous venues, and good times the city has to offer. Let's explore their 1970s-inspired, multi-colored dress wearing, seafoam green leisure suit sporting wedding.

This week we're celebrating woodsy, outdoor weddings before it gets too cold. Today we've got a UK wedding focused on keeping things eco-friendly, educational for non-pagans, and full of music. With a handmade corset dress, a ceremony in the round, and a forest setting, this pair totally knows how to do fun, frolic, and rock 'n' roll out in the wilderness.
My brother-in-law — who has never danced himself — once told me that it is only natural in dancing that the man leads and the woman follows. Having taught many partner dance classes, from Swing to French Folk, I can tell you that that is completely and utterly untrue.

It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're drooling over the barbed wire bouquet, the hearse getaway car, the giant pork pie, and the many, many amazingly carved pumpkins by the guests. Plus, you'll never guess which Supernatural star cameoed in the photo booth…
These UK gamers certainly know how to put effort into their decor — you might lose your shit over their amazing papercraft centerpieces based on game developers. But it's the little touches that made us grin: the Calvin & Hobbes vows, the kitty collar moment, the serenade-turned-glass crash moment(!), and of course, the big love for their friends and family. This is a geektastic-meets-metal winner, you guys.
Boho Cornwall, a sweet couple, and their baby girl — what a way to elope in this UK wedding. The scenery alone with have your heart palpitating with joy.

Where do we even begin with this UK wedding? The rainbow origami flowers? The Lumpy Space Princess card box and Adventure Time cake? The cult film-themed tables? The POLE DANCING at the reception?!

You guys, this wedding will fulfill many desires: steampunk gear, Adventure Time decor, World of Warcraft bunting, and board games galore. It's everything our geeky hearts love.

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 monochromatic 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!
Retro 1950s style, adorable swing dresses, bright red crinoline matching bright red hair, and a sweet uniting of two parents — it's a pretty damned awesome UK wedding. Don't miss the bride's fruity and retro reception dress. Plus, you'll never guess how they snagged the red classic car!
