Art Deco Meets Glam Rock Wedding at The Roxian Theatre

Heather and Andy’s July wedding was a red carpet event meets glam dance party! Hosted at The Roxian Theatre, which was built in 1929, the art deco surroundings also influenced the theme. They had lots of black and gold as well as jewel tones.

“We wanted a glam red carpet style evening wedding without the stuffiness and knew our venue would play a huge role in setting the vibe”, began the bride. “Our shared passion is music and we spent a lot of our eight-year relationship attending concerts and music festivals together, so we knew right off the bat a concert venue would be our ideal space. We wanted our guests to look and feel amazing, so fashion-wise, whatever that meant to them was cool with us. We offered guests booze as soon as they arrived, and invited them to witness the ceremony ‘concert style’ from the VIP mezzanine boxes.”

A Simple Yet Sparkly South London Knees Up

Emily and Elliott’s M.O. for their wedding day was to keep everything low budget and low stress – not two things that often go hand in hand with wedding planning! Early on, though, they decided that they wanted to keep things very simple, with very little pomp and ceremony – just loads of love and laughter.

With a £6,000 budget. they knew they wanted to keep things local – as they met, live and love in south London it would’ve felt wrong for them to do it anywhere else! They held their reception at Asylum Chapel in Peckham and moved onto The Ivy House pub in Nunhead afterwards for hot dogs, chips and plenty of dancing.

Emily is in love with 1930s to 1950s fashion and all the glitz and glamour that old school Hollywood entails. She knew a fluffy white dress just wasn’t going to cut it for her, but was nervous to abandon tradition at first. After a visit to a bridal boutique to try on traditional dresses confirmed her suspicions, she tried on an amazing sequin dress last and whilst, being white the colour was wrong, the sparkles had her at hello. Furious searching online for something similar in a different colour was fruitless, so she made the snap decision to get something similar made on Etsy.

Modern, Glam & Monochrome Wedding in Brooklyn with a Sparkly Dress

Matthew and Hillary wanted every aspect, from beginning to the end of their wedding day to feel very true to their personalities, their personal style and the things that they love. “We really wanted our guests feel like it was a wedding only we would have,” said Hillary. “ Our motto for the day ended up being ‘aesethic or forget it!’ We wanted to focus on what we love and share that with our guests, instead of focusing on traditions and the things we ‘should do.’”

Hillary was never someone who pictured herself in a wedding dress, and when it came time for her to pick one nothing felt right – until spying LOVE by Pnina Tornai where it was love at first sight! The glittery gown of dreams came with a removable belt which she opted to DIY and add to the back of her beloved leather jacket that she customised with woven patches from Elisa and Eliza on Etsy. Her jewellery was also from an Etsy seller, and the backdrop necklace made some stunning dramatic photo moments.

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. It was an iconic representation of our beloved city, Manchester, and really didn’t require much decorative input from us – though we did have a lot of fun making things like the table centres, table plan, name cards and floral arrangements.”

When Sparks Fly: A Sparkly Meets Industrial Wedding… with Taco Trucks!

There were so many sparks on Dan and Annaliese’s first date that they decided to theme their wedding after them! “We were living about an hour apart at the time so that first date was a bit reluctant to be honest,” said Annaliese. “Although I thought Dan looked cute and funny, we both just thought the distance was a stumbling point. I jokingly said to a friend that I’d probably only go on one date with Dan, unless ’Sparks are showering the floor like a welding shop’.” Fortunately, that was exactly how she felt about that first date!

It was fitting, then, that they chose a former steel works for their big day, where they held both their ceremony and their reception for over 300 guests. When it came to thinking about the inspiration for the day, they made choices knowing that they wanted their day to be a celebration of love, full of sparkles and one big party.

Picnics, Punting & A Potting Shed Reception: A Glam Meets Relaxed Un-Wedding

With their careers in hospitality and production for the entertainment industry, Gemma and Howard know a thing or two about organising events. “Though to be honest it’s best not to think about it too much and just get on with it,” said Gemma, “otherwise you’ll end up curbing all your ideas and never realising your plans!”

And big plans they had for their wedding, as they wanted to create a celebration fit for their venue. Held in the landscaped grounds of Berrington Hall in Herefordshire, they were inspired by the Neo-classical mansions history, and channelled Georgian soirees, bacchanalian feasts and lovers trysts peppered with bountiful blooms, sequins and personal touches to help shape the feel of their day.  They had the added gravitas that they are, and will be, the only couple in living memory to have been married at Berrington Hall as it’s a National Trust property; better have a party to end all parties, then!
