If you’re unsure as to whether gold streamers are a good idea, then you just need to see Emmy & Tom’s wedding day! This celebration of love is just the perfect example of doing it your way and stripping away any traditions you don’t want. With an industrial vibe and autumnal colour scheme, this beautiful couple opted for a retro feel, with disco balls, brown medicine bottles and a gorgeous handmade velvet banner. Of course, Recommended Supplier, Mark Horton Photos, was on hand to capture each aspect in his perfectly curated fashion. The epic sound setup was also put together by groom Tom, who happens to be a sound engineer - the perfect opportunity to dance the night away! 

Gold streamers for industrial-styled wedding

We curated music playlists for various parts of the day from about a year before the wedding. Every time we heard a song we liked we’d put it into a playlist; it meant all the music was personal to us and matched the mood.

Emmy & Tom


Emmy & Tom’s styling and vibe was very much curated by them. Their venue (FiveFour Studios), happens to have a very industrial look and is in fact a photography studio in Manchester. Wanting to embrace the look rather than go against it, they opted for a few textures to soften the feel - hence the gold streamers and plenty of gorgeous flowers! The gold and Autumnal colours lend themselves perfectly to their retro styling. Emmy & Tom sourced brown medicine bottles from an antique shop in Manchester and used them for their floral centrepieces. We love!


Finding the right suppliers was incredibly important to Emmy & Tom. They opted for a mix of friends and small businesses that they support regularly, meaning every detail was discussed and really meant something to them. Their wedding invitations were designed by a local tattoo artist who has tattooed the couple many times and is a friend! They really set the tone for the wedding. The custom design was even incorporated into their table decor and we are just a little obsessed!

We’re loving Tom’s retro-inspired suit! 

Everyone tells you that you will be too busy to spend time with your partner on the day. So we took a little time out in the middle of the day. We grabbed a whisky at the empty bar together and just took it all in. Our photographer Mark thought this would be a great moment to capture and the photos are stunning and take us back to that moment, it really was a special memory from a fantastic day.

Emmy & Tom

The gold streamers aren’t the only decor we love from Emmy & Tom’s day. From the disco balls to the velvet banner, we’re feeling it all. If you’re in need of a little more 70s retro styling, we’ve got the inspiration you need.
