A bespoke gold fringe wedding dress stole the show for this urban celebration, although the personalised Rod Stewart message that the Maid of Honour pulled out the bag was pretty epic too! Mismatched bridesmaid dresses, a town hall ceremony and a big red bus to transport guests solidified the city feel of the day! Keeping it close to home in Hackney and Clapton, the city lovers made sure the day was centred around their personalities. And it was all captured by the amazingly talented and one of our recommended suppliers, Bates + Bates Photography!
WHAT MADE OUR DAY UNIQUE
“We met and have lived together in East London, initially in Hackney before moving to Walthamstow. So we chose Hackney Town Hall to get married as it is somewhere we would pass regularly in our day to day lives that, and could smile looking back on the day. So likewise we wanted to use as many suppliers from East London as possible to support local businesses and individuals who make the area what we love.” – Laura & James
Fringe Wedding Dress
A bespoke gold fringe wedding dress for the bride that was designed and made by close friend Fleetwood of London, with the bride being heavily involved in the process. Looking chic for the urban celebrations the unique dress made sure the day was injected with glamour. The bridesmaids also put their own stamp on their outfits, with mismatched vibrant dresses, not only was this city wedding super cool but also a lot of fun as well! The fringing on the bride’s dress just makes us want to shimmy and spin!
INSPIRATION & STYLING
“We wanted the day to represent James and I. So we went for an eclectic mix off our personalities; creative, vibrant and energetic all wrapped up in an urban setting. We didn’t have a wedding planner, so James & myself researched & organised most aspects of the day. We’re also both easy-going, so we didn’t stress the small stuff, or worry about following traditional wedding formalities.
Stand out moments: laughing once I got the top of the aisle & shouting out ‘this is mental’, having 15 mins together after the ceremony before walking out to the confetti, to get our equilibrium back and it really hit us that we had just got married. The speeches.. especially the Maid of Honor who played a personal message from Rod Stewart organised by one of my best friends. “ – Laura & James
