Her Offbeat Partner: Ash, Specialist Sports Sales Supervisor
Location and date of wedding: Cambridge Register Office, Pub Crawl Wedding Breakfast and Whittlesford Memorial Hall, UK — 8/11/08
What made our wedding offbeat: We tried really hard to make the day fun and totally relaxed while still being totally fabulous.
I really wanted a non-white dress, no bridesmaids, speeches or wedding cake. And I everyone to wear black, white and red. We hired the best ska band in the entire of Cambridge and managed to fit in a pub crawl as well.
Our biggest challenge: Our families. The specific things we wanted were not too everyone's tastes and I certainly felt a lot of pressure to go with a more traditional approach.
We stuck to our guns and on the day everyone said how wonderful it was to be at such a different wedding.
My favorite moment: I actually have loads…
Our hairdressers and make up girls getting really excited to see the dress. Seeing Ash when we first walked in. My heart leaped, he looked goooooooooood! Having “Bohemian Rhapsody,” by Queen, playing during the ceremony and the obligatory “Waynes World” head banging moment. The food was amazing, as were my friends and family. Eating just cooked jammy scones — yummy! When the singer from the band stage dived into the crowd in the evening. Everything actually, it was all brilliant.
Don't let anyone tell you you're doing the wrong thing. Don't doubt your vision. Have the picture in your head of your wedding and make it happen!
Enough talk — show me the wedding inspo!:
