A New Year’s Eve Warehouse Wedding with Neon Signs & A Sequin Dress!

Sophie and Matt’s December wedding encompassed everything that love about the festive season: Sequins, sparkle, lots of booze and party food (complete with a Krispy Kreme tower of doughnuts instead of cake!) The atmosphere was celebratory from start to finish.

They were married at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. “We wanted everyone to have lots of fun and feel relaxed”, said the bride. “We had a lot of neon and the venue was a red brick, industrial warehouse so the day did have a I laid back, industrial feel. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram but really, the venue was the inspiration for the wedding.

We loved that.”

Laura and Al decided to get married on New Year’s Eve as a tribute to Al’s grandparents.

We also decided to have all our photographs done first so we could go straight from the ceremony at 4pm, to dinner, to the party so there was no waiting around for guests.”
