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.”

Art Deco Glam Meets Downtown Loft Wedding

Sarah and Justin were married in Yaletown, Vancouver, in October. Their wedding theme was eclectic with a bohemian, art deco glam feel. “We wanted our guests to be relaxed as well as showcase our personalities” explained Sarah, “so we had a relaxed reception with food stations and canapés rather than a sit down meal.”

The couple had a candlelit, romantic, dreamy ceremony with unique rather than traditional vows. “My favourite part of the wedding was the ceremony” said Sarah, “especially the moment when I walked into the room and down the aisle – I was just blown away with how amazing the room looked and even smelt.”

‘The Beauty of Simple Things’: A Low Key East London Wedding

Valeria and Wen-Wei’s London wedding was low key and ridiculously stylish. The bride’s incredible outfit wasn’t a wedding dress, it was a collection of different pieces she loved and put together herself.

The couple met on Tinder! “My sister came to London to visit me and we were waiting for The Strokes to come on stage in Hyde Park”, the bride explained. “We were bored so I showed her how to use Tinder (which was completely pointless as she wasn’t interested in dating at all). So I opened it and first random guy shown was Wen-Wei. I said to my sister: ‘For example, let’s say I like him. I swipe right. Ha. Look, he matched me. Now I could text him but obviously I couldn’t be bothered’. After a couple of days I was tidying up my matches and was going to unmatch him, but my sister said: ‘Oh come on, he looks cute! Just talk to him a bit, he may be interesting’. The rest is history!”

Relaxed and Simple Art Gallery Wedding with the Bride in a Suit

http://www.amyfaithphotography.com

Hannah and Paddy’s Manchester Art Gallery wedding had a laid back, super cool vibe, one that perfectly reflected them and their relationship. The bride in particular, wanted to feel like herself on the day so she opted to wear a sharp white suit from The Kooples rather than a dress and she didn’t carry a bouquet.

“Our wedding was lush, relaxed, simple”, she said. “We had a lot of monochrome, but also a lot of greenery, which really complemented the gorgeous art work in the gallery. We wanted a pared-back and clean atmosphere, but that kept away from the clinical side of minimalist.”

“We scattered eucalyptus on the tables and used as part of the name cards, so the room smelled amazing. All our tables were named after our favourite Manchester pubs and bars, so the Top Table was ‘Temple’, which is an amazing underground bar on Oxford Rd, and Paddy’s favourite place in the world. We hired in some extra lighting, so the stone walls of the gallery had a really warm orange glow as the night came in.”

Hipster & Urban Wedding in Berlin

Rishad and Andreas were married in Berlin. The Bangladeshi bride and her German groom had a laid back wedding that really felt like them. “Although there was a lot of planning, we did not have a theme”, explained the bride, Rishad. ” Things just fell into place in the organic semi-chaos that is our life. Some of our guests described it as ‘hipster’ but we’d say it just felt like us. It was small and homely, a celebration of all the different relationships that have individually shaped us.”

“We didn’t particularly think our wedding was ‘alternative’ but there were some crucial elements that  made that day slightly different from the textbook wedding. I wore white but it was not a traditional wedding dress. I did not have a flower bouquet but rather, had some in my hair! We had no flower girls, no best men and bridesmaids – just one friend from each side, who would together conduct the ceremony. There were no grand plans for the reception either. We just wanted to give people time to mingle, touch base and DANCE!”
