Contemporary, Industrial, Indie Wedding

Emily and Craig have been to a LOT of weddings over the last few years – 33 in five years, to be precise – so knew they wanted to do something completely different to what they’d experienced before. As music is a massive part of both of their lives so it was super important to them that it play a big role in their wedding day, too. They wanted the wedding to feel like a music festival with a contemporary twist – less wellies and haybales, more Berlin industrial with street art, greenery and warehouse vibes.. Oh and a massive party to boot! 

With a £23,000 budget, they started their planning by sorting their venue. They fell in love with Constellations in Liverpool, which set the tone for the day. They had a hefty price to pay to secure it exclusively on a Saturday in peak wedding season, but Emily and Craig felt it was worth every penny. “If you find somewhere you love, with a vibe you love, just go for it,” advises Emily. They saved money by creating all their own signage and decor, and serving their wedding cake as dessert. “Other than that we tried to everything carefully but out motto was if you really want it, get it – you only do this once.”

DIY Wedding Inspired by Anatomical Tattoos, Edwardian Advertising & Trainspotting

Rebecca and Tom had an unusual inspiration for the theme of their wedding day – their own house! “We got engaged in our ‘blue room’,” explained Rebecca, “which is a deep teal and we’ve decorated it with copper accents. We then went wedding venue shopping and saw Wylam Brewery in Newcastle had similar features to our house – blues and greys, parquet flooring, industrial decoration. Tom was also keen to use as much wedding stuff in our house afterwards and because Wylam is a similar age and style to our house, we wanted to make wedding features and decoration that would look fitting in both.

Married in July with a £16,000 budget, the couple enjoyed a long engagement and so had the luxury of time to do plenty of DIY. “We made absolutely everything we could ourselves,” said Rebecca, “not only to save money but also because we couldn’t find what we wanted out there already! It was hard to stay focused at times and unnerving having so long between supplier meetings, however in the last two months before the wedding, everything came together and we were able to see our vision come to life.”

Romantic, Industrial & Glam Wedding in Australia

Rikki and Kent share the same birthday of April 5th, so when it came to their wedding day they threw caution to the wind and decided to combine birthday and wedding celebrations and throw the biggest party of their lives! “The only thing you actually NEED to do for a wedding is say like, two sentences,” explained Rikki. “Everything else is entirely up to you to make into the best day of your life.”

They decided to spend the whole day together, along with their photographer, hitting up the arcade, playing pinball, sharing hot wings and margaritas with their bridal party all dressed up in their wedding gear before getting married later that night.

Rustic Meets Industrial Cinema Themed Winter Wedding Party

They say that you’ll meet the love of your life when you least expect it, and that was really true for Zak and Saba – they were very lucky to meet by pure chance on a random weekday afternoon whilst Saba was working as a retail assistant and Zak came in to buy a suit! 

Their wedding party was held in between Christmas and New Years at Hotel du Vin, Bristol, so they wanted a festive, party-vibe for the day. This was fitting with the fact that they were married already, at a ceremony in Las Vegas earlier in the year, so their day was a celebration of that.

Industrial Swiss Wedding with a Pin Up 1950s Vibe

Talia and David were hitched in Switzerland in September. They chose an unconventional venue, owned by a friend’s father, and styled the day around that. The day also had a very slight pin up touches, mostly in the way the bride dressed and styled her own hair and make up.

They didn’t have a massive budget so decided to go DIY or skip a lot of the extras. There was no cake or bridal party and they designed their own stationery and had them printed by Vista Print. The foliage on the tables were branches they’d cut the day before and added on top of homemade runners. They hired a local florist for the bouquet and buttonholes and a caterer and DJ, but everything else was homemade.
