Cogs & Gears Inspired Industrial Wedding in Sheffield

Lenore and Liam’s wedding day was a celebration of all things industrial as well as showing their love for Sheffield, the city in which they live. They had lots of motifs and nods woven cleverly into almost every aspect of the day, including little bottles of Sheffield’s own Henderson’s Relish as place names and making their own wedding rings at CAST, combining the bride’s late mother’s ring, and a gold bracelet from Liam’s mother.

Their industrial theme was inevitable for a number of reasons. The bride explained, “Liam is a materials engineer who works testing metals for a company that creates the steel clips that hold railway lines in place, and I’m an archaeometallurgist studying ancient metals in my PhD in archaeology at the University of Sheffield. Together we share an interest in ancient and modern industrial practices. Additionally, Sheffield has a long and interesting industrial history, which we both feel somewhat connected to. The Kelham Island Museum seemed like the perfect choice for our venue.”

The bride wore Chi Chi London‘s Khloe dress in gold (“I chose a tea length dress for mobility as I knew I would want to run and jump on the day.”), along with the Kisinta heels from Irregular Choice and a Lily Bella veil. Liam went for a shirt from Ted Baker, suit and waistcoat tailored by Ashley Rogers, shoes by Rieker, and a pocket watch gifted by their maid of honour with an antique chain he customised himself. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were told to find something green that made them feel fabulous.

Abandoned Railway Station Wedding in Czech Republic

Tereza and Josef were married at an abandoned freight railway station in the Czech Republic! They had an outdoor ceremony followed by a reception full of all the things they love… and gold dinosaurs!

“The ceremony was set outside, it was really fun!”, began Tereza. “We met with our officiant few days before the wedding in a pub, we got drunk and he asked us all sorts questions about our relationship and he made a lot of notes. His speech was awesome, very personal and everybody laughed. Also, a group of our friends put blue wigs on – it was a surprise for us and another hilarious moment of the ceremony! Instead of ring cushion, we had the rings ready on a heavy metal hand from Urban Outfitters.”

The day was inspired by all the things they love, and the bride got lots of different ideas from Rock n Roll Bride! “My style is Rock n Roll. It’s not just the fashion but all my life. It is freedom and happiness and little dirt and punk. So was the wedding. We love old abandoned factories and spaces of this kind. That is why we chose the railway station, so it was industrial. We also had gold dinosaurs. They matched with my golden skirt, and by the end of the day all dinosaurs were stolen by the guests! Five days before the wedding I woke up with the idea of having gold dinosaurs at the wedding. So I visited about five shops with kids toys and bought all the plastic dinosaurs they had and then sprayed them gold. We also asked two of our friends to draw big Stegosaurus on the floor of the venue. It was fenced with police tape, so it looked like the shape of a dead body of the Stegosaurus.”

Industrial and Botanical Green House Wedding

Ellie, a florist, married Luke over the summer. They wanted their day to have both industrial and botanical elements and focused on DIY projects in order to keep things in budget. “Luke and I met at a Jamaican grill and rum shack via a mutual friend”, began the bride. “We both ordered the same meal: BBQ full rack of ribs and we knew from then it was meant to be!”

They were married on July 22nd at Langlands Garden Centre, York. “Our wedding theme was a combination of industrial and botanical. The raw metal beams of the green house mixed with a mass of mixed fresh foliage and trees, yes we wheeled real life trees into the venue. The inspiration came from our modern taste and love for the outdoors combined with my passion for all things natural, I am a qualified florist and I have worked in the industry for over four years. Nature’s movement, wildness and changing seasons inspire my work everyday so this was a big part of the vision. I had SO many visions! Too many! Thankfully my mother used to be a florist too and our friend Jo is a very talented one also so I made sure to get them on board.”

Oklahoma City Tattoo Studio Wedding

Raegan and Randy had their summer wedding at Blackmint Collective Tattoo Studio in Oklahoma City. It was the perfect venue as they and most of their bridal party and guests all have tattoos. There’s a real industrial feel to their day, with the venue’s exposed lighting rigs and brick walls dotted with modern art, all softened by details like pastel-glazed donuts and the delicate greens of succulents. It’s a look that says modern wedding with an edge, and it’s beautiful.

Describing the vibe, the bride said they went with “Simplicity. We didn’t want the big stressful wedding, we just wanted to celebrate us!” But there was room to also include the unique details, and she added, “I definitely think having our wedding on a Sunday morning with donuts and mimosas in a tattoo shop made us a little different!”

Fifth Time Around Vow Renewal at a Secret Location in Berlin

Mina and Nathan didn’t want their wedding day to be the ‘one big day of their lives’, so instead decided to celebrate their wedding day every single year! This year was their fifth vow renewal (!) and it was the right amount of crazy and weird, laid back and a little industrial.

“We have lived together in many beautiful different places around the world,” began Mina, “but there is something particularly special about Berlin and it’s vibes. It’s a place where it’s seems everybody can choose for themselves how to live. It is an absolutely mixed city, culturally and architecturally, and is a place of contrast and individual perspective. Ugly can be beautiful, chaotic and messy can be perfectly organised, rude can be friendly. All of this was an inspiration to us for our wedding renewal and the reason why we wanted it to be in Berlin.”

Romantic, Industrial Wedding With a Homemade Pink Dress & A Last Minute Venue Change!

When it came to wedding planning, Alice and James worked on finding a middle ground between their very contrasting tastes. They wanted their wedding to celebrate their differences. They looked at colour as a way of showing their different viewpoints and the end result was a mix of a few different themes. They served vegetarian and vegan food, and they had a vegan wedding cake.

“Our tastes couldn’t be more different,” began James, “so we didn’t really go for a specific theme. Our inspiration was using our contrasting tastes to our advantage. Alice loves pinks and mauves, I love navy and greys, so we looked at showing both these viewpoints and uniting it all with a rose gold to match our engagement and wedding rings. Alice loves layers, complex details and decoration, while I am into stripped back, ‘essentials-only’ type of aesthetics. Food and music were also a huge inspiration and something we felt we HAD to get right.”
