Some couples are born cool (I’ve long made peace with the fact I’m not), and this Shoreditch wedding at Village Underground has all the swag, with to-die-for industrial vibes and an epic party. Stylish bride, Sophie, looks hot to trot in her Rosa wedding dress by RMW favourite, Grace Loves Lace, accessorised with a pair of simple – but stunning – gold triangle earrings. Alongside her dashing groom, she looks sublime against the gritty backdrop of East London, and must be thrilled with the couples captures by Chris Barber; keep an eye out for our newlyweds shot through the window of a Routemaster bus. Genius. And as for the menu. My oh my; dive in to discover one of the best wedding breakfasts we’ve seen on these pages.
Just when you think you’ve seen every possible wedding idea there is – a creative couple goes and throws you a curveball! Jess & Sam made their own version of the Periodic Table of the Elements as a table plan – which is totally genius. They also created their own pub, named after them of course, complete with proper pub sign…and if that wasn’t enough, they invited guests to create home brews which they served as part of their real Ale wedding festival! I know, pretty cool indeed.
There are so many other gorgeous details too – Jess’ dress made by her Mum (seriously talented lady), the cake and cheese cake made by Sam’s Mum (another very talented lady), the rustic door frame to allow Jess to ‘enter’ the outdoor ceremony properly, the incredible barn venue, which is so bohemian it doesn’t even have a website…the whole thing is just beautiful from start to finish.
And I haven’t even mentioned the gorgeous photography from Eve Dunlop yet – I mean just look at that portrait in the poppy field? It’s breathtaking. Oh and make sure you keep your eyes peeled for a gorgeous shot of Bambi too – confirming that this venue really is idyllic!
Navy and white is one of my absolute favourite colour combinations because it just looks so smart and clean. It was the perfect colour choice for Céline & Oz’s village hall wedding because it made the humble venue look rather beautiful as I’m sure you’ll agree. It’s also a gorgeous colour for Bridesmaids, and Céline’s sisters look very elegant in their Coast gowns.
Vintage travel is always a good idea for a theme because you can instantly personalise it to suit you as a couple, and there are lots of nods here to Céline’s French heritage.
Holly and Charlie’s big day just has such a lovely vibe, looking through the images really did make me smile. I think it’s because it has a perfect balance of fun, family and love, the whole day was bathed in golden sunlight and everyone just looks so happy.
I loved reading Holly’s write up too, she’s got a very dry sense of humour and it made me laugh. All in all, it’s just a lovely feel good wedding for the middle of the week – I hope you enjoy it too.
