Photographer Jess Rose shared Kira and Jenny’s lovely wedding with us. Take a look and see what did girls say about their big day.

HOW​ ​DID​ ​YOU​ ​MEET?

We met online (good old gaydargirls!) and after a few messages back and forth decided to meet face to face for a coffee in Starbucks. That coffee lasted about 4 hours! We even went back on our one year anniversary and recreated the date – it wasn’t 4 hours second time round​ ​though!

TELL​ ​US​ ​ABOUT​ ​THE​ ​DAY!​ ​WHAT​ ​WAS​ ​THE​ ​THEME,​ ​INSPIRATION,​ ​THE MOST​ ​IMPORTANT​ ​AND​ ​MOST​ ​FUN​ ​PART​ ​FOR​ ​YOU?

As we are from the North East both of our families and a lot of friends had to travel a significant distance for our wedding. We tried to make it as easy as possible for them by choosing a venue where we could have everything in one place and also ‘make a weekend of it’. We wanted our day to be as authentically ‘us’ as possible, after this the most important thing to us was to make our guests feel as valued as possible. Our inspiration was ourselves, our story so far and the things we like. We are well known for socialising events where everyone has a good time, nice food, booze and often board games. This formed a theme for our day – the save the dates were paper fortune tellers, our seating plan was a personalized monopoly board, and the favours were travel board games for the children and scrabble tile initial keyrings for the adults. We are also known for being quite last minute/spontaneous people which is why we decided to set the date and plan the wedding in six months. We knew that even if we had two years to plan it we would do it all in the last six months anyway so it didn’t seem worth waiting! We are both willing to get stuck in and Kira is a creative person so we DIY’d as much of the wedding as we could. This meant we made the save the dates, invitations, order of services, seating plan, favours, name cards, table names, advice cards, guestbook hearts and Jenga, I-Spy selfie sticks, hangover kits, dried petal confetti, all flowers, table decorations and various signage.

STYLED SHOOT: The Other Space

This amazing shoot came out of the creative hands of creative director Erin Balfour of Way Out Weddings and stylist Lisa Johnson of Carmela Weddings.

As Erin says it all began with the ICETANK – a venue that reminded her of Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey 2001 and A Clockwork Orange. Then it all fell into place – white futuristic styling, visors made of Perspex, reflective metal, bursts of orange, bridal jumpsuit and a cape. Brides not of this world – hence ‘The Other Space’.

You can read more about the creative process from all the amazing suppliers (that we listed below) on Erin’s wedding blog – Way Out Wedding.
