Vibrant & Colourful Hull City Wedding Shoot

As city backdrops go, I have to say Hull is killing it. The colours and street art painted on its walls along Humber Street here wake you up and shake you up, and there is a Killers lyric graffitied in hot pink – I am in love. It’s perfect for urbanites wanting something edgy and contemporary for their wedding or engagement photos. Colour, culture, and plenty of buzz – it has it all.

The shoot is also ticking a lot of wedding style boxes by having a customised denim jacket, a pinky blush veil and dress with the biggest, cutest bow on the back, all complementing the pink trousers and on-trend claret velvet jacket combo that makes up the second outfit. Rather than being lost in the noise and colour of the full-on backdrops, these softer colours and shades really shine alongside it all. The message? Colour is your friend and you should never be afraid to use as much of it as you want on your big day.

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!”

Low Key Brooklyn Wedding at Their Favourite BBQ Restaurant

There is something so very magical about New York in the winter time. Mollie and Ryan clearly agree with me because chose January 7th as the date for their Brooklyn wedding. The day was held at Hometown BBQ, their favourite BBQ restaurant in Red Hook.

“Our wedding was relaxed and non-traditional”, said Mollie. “I did a lot of research on Pinterest and alternative wedding blogs to give us the confidence that all our crazy ideas would come together in the end. Other weddings we’d been to previously we’re a big source of inspiration for us. We shamelessly incorporated what we liked from those weddings and learned from others to make sure everything could go as smoothly as possible for us. For the style of our wedding we took a lot of inspiration from our venue. Hometown BBQ has a fantastic low key vibe. We added in our own touches but we mostly let that vibe flow through our wedding.”

Party Vibes Vegan Wedding in Norwich

Nicoletta and Adam wanted a relaxed city wedding which reflected them both, was close to home and filled with their family and friends. They only served vegan food and filled their wedding with all the things they love.

Their ceremony was held in a medieval hall in Norwich. “Norwich is full of history and it was awesome to get married in such an iconic building,” began Nicoletta, “The ceremony was so intimate and wonderful. I walked down a beautiful staircase into an historic hall and we were married under the most stunning bay window. Walking down the staircase and seeing Adam waiting for me was my favourite part of the whole day. My mother held the ceremony and so it was incredible to have her there at such an important part of my life. We read our own vows, made out promises and all in front of our closest friends.”

1960s Working Man’s Club Meets a 1920s Speakeasy

The theme for Katie and Jimmy’s informal winter wedding was a mixture of a 1960s working man’s club with a 1920s speakeasy. They were married at Hackney Town Hall and hosted their reception at Earl Haig Hall, an old British Legion social club in Crouch End.

“We did it our way”, began the bride. “We met in the pub beforehand, we didn’t walk down the aisle and we had no music or readings at the ceremony. The ceremony was just for immediate family and close friends. There were just 20 of us there. At the reception there was no sit down dinner or table plan, we also had no posh cars and no bouquets. It was just informal and fun.”

The bride’s dress came from eBay and cost her £25! “It was purchased on a whim two weeks after getting engaged”, she said. “Wedding dress shopping wasn’t for me. I’m not very confident so found the whole process very stressful and I didn’t feel great in anything I tried. But I loved my eBay dress and was so pleased with it. I made my veil myself with materials that cost less than a fiver. I also bought some amazing leopard print shoes from Topshop.”

Art Deco Urban Wedding with an Indoor Meadow

Phoebe and Stephen wanted an city wedding in London, but for it to also have elements of nature. The were married at The Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green but some clever ideas and flower installations brought the outside in!

“Stephen loves wild grasses and it was his idea to bring in all these wonderful grasses and meadow flowers into the council chamber where the ceremony was held”, explained Phoebe. “Charley at London Flower House created an installation where it looked like the plants were growing up from the floor around us. The Town Hall has such an elegant interior that barely needed additional decor, but it was important for us to make our mark on the space and this felt really personal to us. We extended this aesthetic by creating arches of grasses and branches around the door frames of the De Montfort suite where the drinks reception was held.”
