Plants, Glitter, Food & Family: An Eclectic Hackney Wedding

After a ceremony for 100 at Hackney Town Hall, Prue and Nick’s reception was held walking distance away at Hackney Showroom at the Hackney Downs Studios. They loved the space as it was essentially a blank canvas which they could do whatever they wanted to. The day had a laid back, eclectic, and extremely East London vibe – so much so that the bride and groom got the bus between venues. In true London style, no-one batted an eyelid!

“The day reflected our love of food, plants, glitter and family”, said Prue. “We had lots of lights, lots of feasting food, lots of confetti and lots of laughing. It sounds cliché but we were inspired by each other. I love plants and greenery, Nordic design and LOTS of confetti while Nick loves food and cooking, disco and sustainability/recycling (all of our plates and bowls etc were recyclable palm leaf and we made sure that everything was recycled or repurposed after the day).”

Alice in Wonderland Meets Peaky Blinders LA Warehouse Wedding

Andrea and Nate’s “Classy Upscale Alice In Wonderland” theme is a total belter. From Nate serenading Andrea as she walked down the aisle to their über cool LA warehouse reception, it was inspo fo’ days…

They describe their wedding scheme “like Alice in Wonderland inspired but not like you just stepped into Disneyland – a specific sort of royal black, white gold, and red.” There was a definite feel of vintage Hollywood glamour, with Nate and his groomsmen wearing a Peaky Blinders-inspired three-piece wool suits with newsboy hats and some worn work boots. Andrea’s bridesmaids all wore jewel tones in styles inspired by her beautiful dress: an elegant hand-beaded 1920s style gown. Her ring was also a hand-curated vintage treasure by Katie Carder.

Mid-Century Mexicana Wedding in Melbourne

Em and Nick have turned the feel-good vibes up to 5000 today with their chic Melbourne warehouse wedding and its ‘mid-century Mexicana’ theme. I mean, a wedding with a neon “I like your face, loser” sign is going to be pretty bloody special, isn’t it?

Not only is their day incredible to look at, but Em and Nick totally bossed the wedding planning side of things too, and they’ve shared some cracking advice as well as their gorge love story.

“We decided right away that we didn’t want a sit down wedding or a formal venue, because it doesn’t reflect us a couple and what we love sharing together,” Em says. “We shared these decisions with Kate from Good Day Rentals, our Stylist, who then had us put together Pinterest boards of all things we loved that weren’t Wedding related. By the time we were done, the boards were flowing with pins of 90s nostalgia films, Parks and Rec quotes, neon lights, and a lot of things we didn’t see a correlation between. Kate did though because she put together our theme (Mid-Century Mexicana) and had us awestruck. It was the ultimate combination of us as individuals and as a couple.”

Relaxed DIY Warehouse Wedding

Sarah and Jamie had a summer wedding that they described as “Retro with bright colours and lots of food!” The inspiration for the theme came from their love of music, art and food, most of which was provided by family members because they wanted to keep the budget low. Plus food made with love for your best day is always going to add a really special something to proceedings, right?

The couple married at Hull Guildhall, with the reception at music venue warehouse, Früit. The bride said, “From the start of our wedding planning, the venue was always going to be our main priority, and we have always known that we wanted it to be held at Früit. We picked a date they had available and planned the rest around that. We felt that the relaxed décor (and the incredibly lovely venue manager, Chris), was perfect for us to add bits to and make it our own. As we already loved the venue as it was, we kept things simple. The ceiling was decorated with paper lanterns and fairy lights. The table decorations consisted of hessian cloth and glass jars and bottles collected from family and friends, into which we placed wild flowers from Bloom & Wild. The bouquets came with crazy miniature pineapples!”

Hollywood Glamour Warehouse Wedding with a Grungy Twist

The format of Jess and Tim’s wedding was pretty unusual, but it ended up really working for them. Due to some restrictions they were unaware of when they booked their date, they weren’t able to have their ceremony on the day they’d planned for, so ended up having a small intimate ceremony in February, followed by their big reception in March. Luckily they loved doing it this way around, and now have two wedding anniversaries to celebrate (bonus!)

“We think keeping the ceremony private for immediate family and throwing a separate party afterwards was actually really perfect for us,” said Jess, “because it gave us quality time with our family in a sentimental moment that perhaps many other guests don’t really care so much about. We both liked being able to enjoy that moment privately and it allowed us to be more present rather than stressing about the usual formalities. We were then able to mingle more freely and party with our extended family and friends in a larger and more relaxed space.”

Warehouse Wedding Shoot with Gold Leaf… and Nipples!

Yes, you read that right, and this shoot might not be safe for work but oh man, is it awesome. I love how non-weddingy this wedding shoot is! Sure, you might not want to get your baps out for photos on your big day or cover your beloved’s beard is gold leaf, but you’ve gotta appreciate how damn amazing these models look, right?!

This was shot in The Glue Factory in Glasgow, a super rad, warehouse space which is available to hire for weddings. “I initially had an idea to shoot in an urban environment and really push the boundaries for a bridal styled shoot”, said Laura who did the hair and make up for the session. “I had always wanted to incorporate gold leaf with make up and finding the right environment and models that would embrace it. Our models were fantastic and loved how acceptable this look was if they were to get married. I also wanted a nod to Adam and Eve with the sprayed gold and copper apples. We didn’t use any flowers either, just foliage and ferns.”
