These unconventional wedding ideas are sure to give you all the feels today you guys! There is so much to take in, from glitter bridal make up and a glitter beard for the groom, to a painted leather jacket and even a Mustang. We are going all dark, moody and alternative, YES.
It’s also so awesome to be featuring two of our Supplier Love members, the brilliant Bake To The Future created the incredible towering naked cake and Lisa Lyons Bridal is the designer behind the utterly beautiful wedding gown featured here today. Yay.
So just what else is included in this super cool editorial aside from a super loved up couple? A grazing table, prosecco bike and ice cream cart all feature, alongside divine florals, not to mention a super lovely table set up, wonderful stationery, quirky props and the dreamiest of hair styles. All set at the fabulous The Winding House and captured just superbly by Pierra G Photography and Meros Productions. Enjoy.

I had this idea to just try and create something fun, not too serious with a hint of quirkiness, this was my inspiration for my recent styled shoot. I wanted dark organic colours and a real life couple, I wanted to capture real chemistry, so I hunted Instagram with no joy, until my friend Jenna sent me over a couples Instagram page and I knew from the first photo I had to get these guys on board. The energy they had in the photos was electrifying!
So fast forward 6 weeks and I had Lewis and Toni (the real-life couple) drive 4 and half hours down to Kent from south wales… a team of suppliers ready to bring my alternative wedding together!
I decided to go with the Winding House venue, this place is a hidden gem in Dover, as you drive up to this building you are straight away taken aback. Its originality is striking and makes the perfect venue for a couple who is seeking something out of the ordinary.
The table set up we decided to go with something that’s very in ATM a grazing table, we felt the colours of figs, berries and raisins really suited the overall look and feel of the venue.
The stationery really compliments the final touches.
From Mustangs to neon signs this shoot had it all, my inspiration was to have as much fun as possible and inspire others that an alternative wedding is the way forward.
The Alver dress is part of Lisa Lyons Into the Woods collection and it suited the brief perfectly. Both feminine and sleek. It works the boho or a rock-chick look effortlessly.
The pale ivory dress has a plunging neckline with soft frill, a delicate Chantilly lace cape back detail and fluid, georgette skirt.
