A Wild New Jersey Wedding with Drag Performers, Gothic Touches and Mutual Weirdness Forever

The Art Factory, a specious historic loft space in New jersey, was the ideal location for Jordan and Matthew’s creative wedding, They wanted complete control over the day and to not have any restrictions on what they could or could not do, and so the blank canvas, dry hire space was ideal.

Their main goal for the wedding was to throw a wild party while showing off their gothic and alternative personal style. They were able to bring in their own alcohol (which saved a pretty penny) and they were able to party until 5am – wow!

Beer Garden Inspired Urban Warehouse Wedding

Brodie and Joel were living in inner-West Sydney when they first got together, so the area’s hipster/ grunge/ alternative scene seemed like a good starting point for their October wedding day. “We’re not nature lovers, we prefer the city, and inner-West Sydney symbolises us and our relationship. We definitely didn’t want anything traditional, neither of us are religious. We just enjoy a cold bevy and a burger. Good music, people and cool place to hang out at,” said Brodie.

Picking the perfect venue was the starting point to the couple achieving their dream, laid-back day. They had both their ceremony and reception at Stick and Stone in Marrickville, New South Wales – a warehouse space and the perfect blank canvas for Brodie and Joel to add personal touches and do things their way. Everything was geared towards creating a relaxed environment. They had a food truck, a cake smash, no bridesmaids or groomsmen. “Not that we don’t have any friends,” they laughed, “we are lucky to have too many and just couldn’t choose!”

Tattoo Artists’ Intimate Hackney Wedding with Group Photos Done in a Photo Booth!

There’s a hybrid wedding trend we’re seeing a lot these days – not quite an elopement, but definitely not a big wedding either. Jay and Brian knew this was what they wanted for their nuptials. They didn’t want to entirely run away and do it on their own, but they didn’t want to host a ton of people and drop a huge amount of money on it either. So, they found a comfortable mid-way point and married at Hackney Town Hall, followed by a meal at a local restaurant with just 14 guests (and their sausage dog, Duncan!)

“We didn’t really have a theme, we were just true to us”, Jay explained. “We honestly just wanted to celebrate our love and get married, we didn’t want a big wedding as we aren’t like that as people so we just tailored the entire thing to simply be a really nice day for everyone.”

Nothing about their wedding done in the traditional way. They didn’t want photos but they hired Costa Sisters who shoot and film (the images in this article are stills from the video) and they used a photo booth to get a shot to keep of everyone there. After the ceremony they went to the tattoo shop where they both work as artists, to cut a cake and get tattooed.

Pretty in Pink: A Tropical Meets Junk Food London Wedding

Lucie and Tommy’s London wedding was inspired by the bride’s love of pink, their mutual appreciation for the tropical aesthetic and the 1950s, and London, where the day took place. The bride arrived at Hackney Town Hall in a pink Cadillac, her bridal party all wore pink dresses from Coast and their reception decor was all shades from pastel to fuchsia and everything in between. They served their favourite junk food (burgers and Domino’s pizza!) and had one hell of a party!

They chose Core Clapton for their reception. a lovely blank canvas of a venue with a domed white ceiling and lots of space to get creative with the decorations. DIY wasn’t their forte, but they did pull the vision of the day together themselves.

Colourful Yet Casual King’s Road Celebration

Mike and Markus wanted an easy-going wedding. To them, that meant shunning a lot of tradition and having only friends there, no relatives at all. They chose Chelsea as their location as Markus’ parents got married there and because it’s one of the favourite neighbourhoods in London.

“It sounds like a cliché, but honestly I would say that all the people that came together on our day made our wedding what it was, “Mike explained. “Many of our guests had never met each other before or even spoke the same language (since they came from many different countries just to be with us). There was only 40 guests but 14 different languages all together and they all came from eight different countries! As we are an international couple, I would say that our wedding was an urban modern multicultural event and a reflection of the current society that we live in.”

Industrial Meets Tropical & Rose Gold London Wedding

Inspired by an East London club night coupled with a strong desire to do things differently, Rebecca and Reece planned their wedding for March this year. They wanted their day to have a real old meets new feel so chose a reception venue with an industrial vibe, The Depot in Holloway, and decorated it top to bottom in tropical, sparkle and bubblegum pink themed things!

“We’d been inspired by a club in London called Moth Club, which was an old social club that had been rejuvenated for an East London crowd”, explained Rebecca. “It had all it’s old features mixed with glittery curtains and metallic streamers! We wanted something that felt quite old and industrial mixed with twinkly lights, tropical leaves, and glistening copper, so I guess our theme would be old Industrial meets 70s social club. We paired this with a colour scheme of pinks, reds, greens and copper/rose gold.”
