Industrial City Wedding with Bride in Glasses and Rolling In Roses Dress

BUDGET £20 – 25K

Sam and Adam tied the knot last July in London with the beautiful bride in glasses and a stunning Rolling In Roses dress. The Old Dairy played host to their special day which they covered in the most amazing flower arrangements, a copper arch and fabulous table decor which added lots of colour to this industrial venue dressed with festoon lighting. Opting for DIY touches to make their day even more personal this couple made lots of the decor including the wooden welcome sign and the custom confetti bags. Casual and industrial was the theme for both the ceremony and the reception with a hint of The Simpsons! To continue with the fun this bride and groom also hired a mariachi band which paired with the Mexican street food truck and was all finished off with some delicious doughnuts tieing in with The Simpsons theme perfectly.

Spell And The Gypsy Bridal Dress for Intimate Wedding with Pizza Making

BUDGET £5 – 10K

Childhood sweethearts Sophie and Paul got married in November with the bride wearing a beautiful boho style Spell And The Gypsy bridal dress. They originally planned for a big festival style wedding in the summer of 2020, however, after 10 years of being together, they decided that they couldn’t wait any longer and so instead had a very intimate wedding of just 40 guests in the same church that the bride’s grandparents tied the knot. They planned the new wedding in a couple of months and did everything as a team, from the invites to the cake and the flowers making everything all the more special. Cento Uno played host to the reception which was filled with pizza making, Aperol spritz cocktails and spontaneous dance-offs. This effortlessly cool couple created their perfect day topped with emotional speeches and lots of laughter and all captured by D&J Photography!
