Are you looking for style inspiration for your same-sex or LGBTQI+ wedding outfits? We’re here to help!
Gone are the days of rigid rules regarding what brides and grooms can wear on their wedding days. Nowadays, you can essentially wear whatever wedding attire you’d like to – and while that gives you plenty of freedom, it can leave you feeling overwhelmed and at a loss as to where to start putting your outfits together. This is especially true when the big day you’re planning involves two grooms or two brides (or two people without any labels at all!).
Let’s start this week off with a fabulously colourful, joyful, vibrant and exciting wedding, shall we? Knowing we’d be featuring this beaut of a wedding today, I smiled SO much when I spotted Jennie & Verity’s happy faces on the home page of Artisan X Photography‘s website this morning! These two gave their Birmingham wedding photographer an amazing review – and well deserved, because the overwhelming happiness of this wedding comes across so strongly in their photos. The rainbows splash colour everywhere; the bouquets are just stunning – and a spot of punting along the river Cam makes this one of my favourite weddings we’ve featured so far this year! Oh – and it makes me happy and proud to share this as a reminder that not every wedding has a groom. I’d love to feature more weddings with two brides or two grooms – any wedding photographers reading, please check our submissions page right now!
Shall we dive right into this glorious rainbow wedding then? I think so!
If 15% of couples consider eloping most years, then I bet 2020 had ten times that figure… the tears and postponements and new rules have had us all tearing our hair out in frustration. But come 2021, I imagine more of us will be calmly planning to elope – and trust me, it’s a wonderful thing to do. If you read our ‘Married Now, Party Later Revolution‘ feature you’ll get what I mean. And if you read about Laura and Daniel’s STUNNING elopement to New York (in safer times!) I think you’ll be sold on the idea. NYC is a dream elopement location, but you can tie the knot pretty much anywhere these days. These gorgeous guys went big, hit the city and got amazing shots from English Wedding member Artisan X Photography.
