1920s Stylee Speakeasy Wedding

I’ve got a second British post for your today – and this time it’s Miriam & Bruce’s art deco/speakeasy/1920s-30s inspired wedding. The event took place at The Brickhouse, Brick Lane, London which is in the heart of the city’s uber cool East End and was complete with monochromatic colour scheme, gambling tables and cheeky burlesque entertainment. Miriam & Bruce had a humanist ceremony in front of their guests before kicking off a night of unashamed debauchery! Female guests were treated to a black or white feather fan on arrival, and the gents mini bottles of Jack Daniels and chocolate cigars.

Miriam wore a dress and ostrich feather shrug from the fabulous Joanna Fleming Design and birdcage veil from Jane Taylor Millinery.

    Amazing! I never normally like dark wedding cakes but yours is just gorgeous!

    Do we get to find out what’s in the brown paper bags?

  2. Can I just gently blow our trumpet (parp!) as the providers of the black-and-white cheese stack? It’s a version of our ‘Eighty-Eight’ which we put together for Miriam’s wedding …

    Brown paper bags – fresh chocolate croissants! It was an all night event, finishing early morning, so we got some fab fresh croissants from the Bread Shop and made black & white stickers with Sweet Dreams written on them (maybe it should have been Good morning though!) – and a beautiful white rose for each leaving lady – it was such a wonderful finish of the night and gave us a chance to speak to everybody before they left.

    The black wedding cake was amazing – made by Juliet from Fancy Nancy.
