I think Shannon and Jordy’s summer wedding might just be one of the prettiest I’ve ever featured. They kept things relatively simple, but it made for a really beautifully styled day.
“Jordy proposed on a surprise trip to Montreal with a beautiful custom ring that perfectly suits my minimalist aesthetic”, Shannon said. “Our wedding was intimate, industrial and a bit mid-century. We decorated the venue like we would decorate our home, and we ended up using some of our own furniture to set the tone.”
The day was held at Frame Arts Warehouse Winnipeg “Our inspiration was the beautiful warehouse buildings in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District, which were originally built to store merchant goods during a boom period in the early 1900s. We work in the neighbourhood and we were excited to share one of it’s special spaces with our families. The exposed brick, heavy timber framing, high ceilings and big windows in the venue spoke for themselves and didn’t need much embellishment.”
Nat and Drew’s Brixton wedding was pretty, sparkly, but most of all a celebration for them and their friends and family. “Our inspiration was us”, the bride said. “We planned the kind of party we wanted to go to. We chose London because it’s where we have made our home together, but we wanted to put our hearts into it and it just sort of evolved that way. The day was for us, and if we were happy then everyone else would be too.”
“The theme, if we had to have one, was city warehouse chic with vintage and sparkle. One of the most important things to me personally was to customise our wedding myself, to feel like it was all a part of us. I took a lot of inspiration from the articles I read in Rock n Roll Bride magazine actually. The mags helped provide about 80% of the images on my mood board! I decided quite early on to use the tutorial for making paper pinwheels from an old issue and from there it just grew.”
Jen and Luke we’re inspired by lots of different things for their Auckland wedding. They wanted their day to be bohemian but luxe, industrial but in the city.
Their ceremony was held at Edge Kingsland, a warehouse space and their reception on the roof of Auckland District Law Society. “We didn’t play by the rules or stick with the same old template wedding”, said the bride. “This meant more work for us but also meant we loved every part of our day because it was a unique reflection of us. We researched a lot of venues around Auckland and nothing really fit so decided to do it ourselves in exactly the way we wanted to do it.”
“Because of the size of the rooftop, our reception numbers were quite limited”, she continued. “Because of this we had a semi-open invite to our ceremony. We chose to cut our cake during our ceremony so all our friends and family could be a part of that moment. It wasn’t perfect – we forgot to put the flowers on top of the cake (something I always wanted) so I told my bridesmaids to find me some flowers ASAP and basically ripped the heads off them and stuck them on the cake, in front of everyone! The cake knife was also nowhere to be found so one of the groomsmen ran off stage and found the first cutting utensil which happened to be a small bread and butter knife!”
