New York Bookshop Wedding

New York Bookshop Wedding (12)

Jade and David were married in a New York bookshop in August. They themed their wedding around their love of travel, and on the tables were photo props for each of the cities they were named after. “We were inspired New York!”, said Jade. “It was the first place we went on holiday together and we’ve been back a few times since. We knew it would be the perfect place for us to get married.”

After photos around Soho with their photographer, Sascha Reinking, the wedding itself was held at Housing Works Bookstore. “The venue was completely different to any wedding we’d ever been to. As it’s not a typical wedding venue and I suppose we both worried a little on how it might go. However the team there were so incredibly professional and the whole wedding went so smoothly. Also the wedding officiant, Reverend D, can only be described as unique, alternative and different! She was amazing, we each filled out a survey from her before the wedding so she could personalise the ceremony for us. It was short (just as we wanted), hilarious, sweet and so perfect for us. She stayed for the dinner and party after and our guests loved her just as much as we do!”

City Jungle Rooftop Wedding in Moscow

Alice and Andrew’s 50-guest wedding was held on a rooftop in Moscow. They gave their guests a dress code to wear only black, and the cake was all black as well. As I’m sure you can guess, black is the bride’s favourite colour. They really just wanted to get married and have a huge party – so that’s exactly what they did!

“Our first idea was that we would have a pool party!” said the bride. “But the weather in Moscow in September differs completely from the west. It may be 20°C or it could be 5°C! So instead we decided to have a party on the urban roof with a magnificent view of the beauty of the Moscow city centre. The idea of a kind of ‘city jungle’ themed party came after we found the right rooftop. We loved the idea of a neon tropics theme!”

Minimal Cat-Themed Wedding in Philadelphia

Simple and Minimal Wedding in Philadelphia (11)

Leila and Dan’s Philadelphia wedding was simple, minimal and took place in an urban loft space, Power Plant Productions.

“We wanted to make our wedding have more of a party feel instead of a stuffy affair”, said the bride. “I didn’t really have any inspiration as such, I don’t use Pinterest, so I just found things I liked! We had our reception cocktail style with a mix of high tops and low tables and three food stations (a mac and cheese bar, a build your own taco satiation and an Thai food station). There was no assigned seating either so people could move around however they saw fit.”

They were married in front of a homemade backdrop and the venue was decorated throughout with simple mason jar and baby’s breath centrepieces. They also had a slight cat theme with their cake topper and some of the decor.

Keri and Sean wanted a wedding theme that included dinosaurs, gnomes, Harry Potter and zombies! They hoped the day would be full of the things they like, to reflect themselves, and to be super relaxed and a whole lot of fun!

However, they had a slightly rocky start to the day! “I was late to the ceremony because the wheel fell off the bridal car, rolled across the road and landed at the side of the river!” laughed Keri. “Thankfully there were no causalities! We then jumped into the VW Campervan and made our way to the venue – 40 minutes late!”

Urban Garden Wedding in LA

Urban Garden Wedding (21)

Sami and Aaron were married at Elysian, a private garden sand event space in Los Angeles. The venue definitely inspired their theme which ended up having a garden vibe with urban touches.

“We got married in a really beautiful outdoor garden area”, said the bride, “and that inspired the design and colour scheme that we chose. Our beautiful ceremony was written by my friends, Craig and Brenda, that happen to be incredibly talented, published poets. We knew we wanted to have a friend officiate us and they immediately popped into my head and they were perfect.”

“You can’t tell by the photos, but it was 108 degrees outside! Literally it was the hottest day of the year! So the ceremony was a perfect length, about 20 minutes, considering, and everyone was very patient and enjoyed it very much which was great to hear! Because it was so hot out, we decided against doing ‘first look’ and opted to see each other for the first time at the ceremony. Leading up to the wedding I kept asking Aaron if he would cry during our vows. He is a very sensitive man, but not a huge crier, so mainly I was joking. But when I walked up the aisle and we saw each other for the first time, I saw tears in his eyes and I said, ‘Don’t you do this to me!'”

Green and Leafy Yet Urban Wedding

Green Dress Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf - Matt Parry Photography (45)

Libby and Matt were married at The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The inspiration for the wedding was the bride’s emerald engagement ring, which was originally Matt’s grandmothers. The also bride wore a bespoke green silk dress by Wendy Benstead.

“We had already been considering green for our main colour, but then we finally moved house and got our first garden, and decided to expand on that and make gardens the theme” the bride said. “We ended up with a gift list at a garden centre, hired trees to decorate the venue, and wild, ivy-type flowers for the bouquets and tables, as well as a garden arch covered in flowers which we got married under.”

“The most unqiue parts of our wedding were probably more the things we didn’t do” she continued. “We didn’t do favours, we didn’t have a first dance, we didn’t have a traditional wedding cake, I haven’t taken Matt’s name, I don’t wear a wedding ring (just my engagement ring) and obviously I didn’t wear white! We decided not to do anything just because it was traditional, although we weren’t against carrying on the traditions which we liked. For instance, throwing confetti seemed to really fit with the theme of the wedding, and I bought some beautiful green and white petals from The Real Flower Confetti Company.”
