An explosion of colour, laughter and love would best explain this multi-cultural wedding at Scale in Liverpool, that featured everything from street art to a Chinese tea ceremony! We're talking silky sage green bridesmaid dresses, a statement flower cloud and not one but three mouthwatering cakes. (Seriously, if drip cakes are your thing, you're in for a treat...). But we've barely scratched the surface as Eleanor and Max went above and beyond to create the most magical day. It was all captured beautifully by Recommended photographer Wyldbee Photography who said this wedding featured one for her 'favourite confetti moments to date'. High praise from a wedding photographer, but we have to say, we wholeheartedly agree...
Industrial wedding at Scale Liverpool with sage green bridesmaid dresses.
We wanted our day to just be us: relaxed, playful, fun, lots of eating, drinking, laughing, and dancing. We aimed to incorporate as much of our loves as possible: houseplants, colours, great live music, tag rugby (how we met), street art, games, good food, and most importantly: our family and friends having the BEST time!
There were probably too many details to list at this wedding at Scale Liverpool, but we'll give it our best shot... Eleanor and Max picked sage as a colour theme for their love of foliage. (See the sage green satin bridesmaid dresses for more on that!) They made their day unique with homemade signs, fun facts about every guests and personalised wooden table place names. A baking-loving friend made their cakes as a gift and also honoured Eleanor's heritage with a Chinese tea ceremony. The celebrant was their friend Eve, who stole the show with her high energy and they even had custom vows! Wow, we're out of breath. But we can't tell if it's from listing that off quicker than we can type, or from the complete awe we feel at the style and attention to detail. Probably both. Off for a sit down and another look at that grazing table...
This urban city centre wedding venue is surrounded by incredible street art, and set the perfect backdrop for Eleanor and Max's vibrant day! They even included shots of the streets around Scale Liverpool on their save the dates so guests could guess the venue before the big day. (When the fun has already started with the save the dates, you just know it's going to be a wedding to remember...) The exposed brick and wooden floors brought all of the rustic charm, with string lights to complete the relaxed vibes. A family-style wedding breakfast with five metre long grazing table for the evening made their wedding reception a truly social affair, and a party we just really wish we could have been at!
A grazing table is a great way to keep the relaxed vibes in the evening! And keeps your guests full of energy for the dance floor...
Our favourite moments?
Eleanor: When it was my turn to dance down the aisle with my dad, the door shut on my dress behind me and I was stuck, with everyone watching. All I did was laugh! My dad freed me, and it set the tone for the rest of the day.
Max: The congregation was asked to stand, "I'm so excited" started playing on the speakers and I launched into dancing down the aisle. However, the wedding party was NOT ready to follow me. So I had to stall and dance in front of the congregation for the entirety of the song.
This wedding at Scale Liverpool has given us the serotonin boost we were looking for. And the wedding inspiration. And the desire to start making five metre grazing tables an acceptable evening meal.... But if you're looking for a city centre venue, we have a whole host of Recommended venues to choose from! Or if it was the grazing table has you thinking about your food plans, we have all the important questions you need to ask your caterer or venue before the big day.
