• Shropshire summer outdoor wedding ceremony at the Mill Barns

    Gay wedding in Shropshire - grooms and their groomsmen

    Ceremony at the terrace, a million paper flowers and lots of laughs – a lovely DYI gay wedding photographed by our beloved duo The Dignums.

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    Surely the story of about half of modern weddings – we met on line, although the website we met on doesn’t exist anymore – hopefully our relationship will last a little longer. Our first date was to Warwick Castle, one just out of hospital, the other very very hungover, both trying and failing to hide from the other how hard the stairs were. Our first kiss was there and a good few years later the proposal happened at the same spot.

  • LORNA AND ZOE’S SECRET GARDEN KENT WEDDING

    Two brides in the garden - same sex wedding at Gay Wedding Blog

    Sally Rawlins shared a beautiful lesbian wedding that is full of smiles and love and just makes me feel like summer is actually round the corner. And there are dogs in the wedding!!!

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    We have been together for over 3 years, and although we went to the same school, we didn’t ever cross paths! Actually we became close through a mutual friendship group and we would frequently go out clubbing together. Both os us knew there was a spark from day 1, and although we had both never been in a lesbian relationship before, we just knew it was more than a friendship. Our amazing friends ended up working their magic and helping us to pluck up the courage to go out on a first date (it was terrifying as we hadn’t come out to our families!).

    Our first date was at Thorndon Park in Brentwood, Essex – a dog walk with our boys. It was eventful and hilarious, with Charlie falling in the lake (Lorna rescued him!) and Tyson trying to eat the Gregg’s donuts Zoe had brought along. But it was absolutely perfect and we just knew that was going to be the first dog walk of many together.

  • RACHAEL & FRANCESCA’S COLORFUL LONDON STREET COUPLE SHOOT

    If you follow this blog regularly you know by now I’m a total sucker for urban scapes and love street art. It;s always an amazing backdrop for a couple shoot. These two gorgeous and totally badass women were beautifully photographed on streets of London by talented Jo of Joasis Photography. And Rachael tells us their story.

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET 

    Myself & Francesca met through our work as police officers in London. Believe it or not Francesca was my mentor for the TSG- riot police! We used to have to do circuits together at the beginning of the shift to keep fit for our physically demanding role. She used to wear these fairly short pink gym shorts, she certainly got my attention! We kept it professional for a short while but on a work night out Francesca finally plucked up the courage to kiss me, we’ve hardly spent a day apart since, although we do now both work in different departments in the Police so I no longer get to see those short shorts on a daily basis ;) 

  • JOY AND TRACY’S SEASIDE WEDDING

    A seaside wedding from my corner of the world – East Sussex! I absolutely love visiting Rye and Camber beaches so seeing these wonderful women and their gorgeous smiles on dunes made me really happy. Enjoy!

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    We met through a dating website called Gaydar Girls, I don’t think it exists anymore! We’d been chatting for about three months before we decided to meet up. It was an August bank holiday weekend,  I’d been working all day and remember rushing home scrubbing up and walk down to the beach, where we’d agreed to meet. And the rest is history. 

    NOW ABOUT THE BIG DAY – WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION?

    The theme was relaxed beach house party and the location was all the inspiration needed. Huge sand dunes, vast expanse of sandy beach, sea in the distance. We wanted the day to have a natural relaxed feel. Floral tones of green grasses & foliage,  with hints of dusky pink/cream roses. We styled it ourselves and it was a bug beach house party.

  • DAVID AND DAVID’S SURPRISE GLASGOW WEDDING

    Look at these two happy gentlemen in kilts! What a great Glasgow wedding, enjoy!

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    We met almost 20 years ago through friends and being out and about in bars and clubs in Glasgow, however we didn’t ask each other out back then. With the world of social media and Facebook, having pop ups of someone you may know function we connected as friends and it led to us both catching up for a drink. And then led to a 10 year relationship.

  • GARETH AND STUART’S URBAN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT IN LONDON

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET 

    It was May bank holiday weekend in 2009, Stuart had his sister visiting from Liverpool and I was out on the town with a group of friends. We both ended up in the Boston which is Northampton’s local Gay bar.

    I remember walking in to the bar, ‘Number 1’ by Tinchy Stryder was playing, the way I recall it Stuart was on the dance floor, he has all the moves! I’m more off your classic two step ‘dad’ dancer! He has amazing dimples and I couldn’t stop looking at him! 

    We got introduced by one of our mutual friends Marc, over the course of the night we kept finding reasons to talk to each other aided by Stuarts sister Laura [Stuart would say I was finding reason to talk to him].

    We found it easy to talk to each other, found each other interesting and we both didn’t want the night to end, when it was time to go, we exchanged numbers, from there we arranged our first date. Which was a drink at a local pub, we joked if I didn’t come back from the WC then I’d have climbed out the window… I didn’t climb out the window. 

  • WIM AND MURPHY’S AMSTERDAM BOAT WEDDING

    Today we’re going to Amsterdam to join these two gentlemen on their boat wedding photographed by Marta Ilardo.

    WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WEDDING?

    We wanted it to be on a Boat as we live in Amsterdam and also celebrate the fact that it is a gay wedding as we have international friends who live in countries where gay weddings are not allowed, the theme was the gay rainbow lag mixed with The Village People theme and white flowers.

  • COLORFUL CITY COUPLE SHOOT

    Today’s city couple shoot was sent over by Christine Marie Scott of Lomonico Photography who photographed Kelsey and Michelle in San Diego.

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET 

    We met on a dating app called HER. On our first date we got sushi, saw Jeff Goldblum’s jazz band, and sang “Take Me Or Leave Me” from Rent at karaoke in West Hollywood.

  • AARON AND JAMIE’S WARM AND COLOURFUL WEDDING

    A wedding, castle and plenty of colour – all things that make me happy. Enjoy this wedding shared by the photographer Nick Church.

    TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET

    We swiped right (haha!) and everything else is history (and they lived happily every after!)

    NOW ABOUT THE BIG DAY! WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION?

    We opted for a colour selection that would fill a dull wintery day with brightness, and we wanted to incorporate lots of yellow. Yellow was the favourite colour of Aaron’s mum, and in some way we wanted it incorporated to make it feel that she’s a part of it.

    We like eclectic but simple and I guess it worked out that way. We thought of and designed most of the decorations. Aaron has used his calligraphy to write every name placeholder, menu and table names.

  • ROMANTIC ENGAGEMENT SHOOT IN THE FIELDS
