If you like your weddings stylish, with lots of foliage and a large helping of industrial vibes, then you’re going to love Jamie and James’ ode-to-Yorkshire wedding. I love that the duo decided to include only things they loved, like opting for greenery over flowers, choosing a venue with a late licence, serving Afternoon Tea and providing guests with full-on fancy dress costumes for the photo booth.
Their wedding looks like an absolute riot and Lianne Gray has captured all of the fun for us to enjoy…
I’m going to begin this feature with Bride Holly’s words, because although you’ll them again at the end of the blog post, I really think they are worth reading twice:
‘Take every opportunity to snap a quick mental picture of everything! Capture it and crystallise it forever. It’s precious and it’s one time only. So choose to enjoy it! Even if little bits & pieces don’t go to plan (balloons don’t blow up, coffee doesn’t show up on time!), just remember you’re surrounded by people who have given up time & resource to be there, to celebrate you and your partner saying yes to forever! That’s super special. So don’t let any silly little detail steal your joy.’
SO well said and it’s truly a pleasure to bring you Holly and Joe’s joy this afternoon…
This morning we’re feeling ALL of the industrial vibes with Marnie and Gavin’s stylish Sheffield wedding. The pair are both architecture graduates, so naturally their wedding is impeccably designed. They’ve also let the space do the talking – which can be a bold move, but when the space is as striking as 92 Burton Road – it totally pays off.
Marnie looks amazing in Vera Wang which she found in a charity shop (!) in Norfolk. If there was ever a reason to head to Norfolk for a long weekend…this is it. Other gorgeous things to look out for – the rust coloured bridesmaids dresses, the stunning florals and the street food style dining. All in all, it’s a pretty epic wedding! Let’s take a look shall we?
OMG lovely ones, this wedding!!! I don’t think I’ve ever blogged anything quite like it. Laura and Scott live on an airfield and so Eshott Airfield felt like home from home for them. The lofty, industrial space of an aircraft hanger is just SUCH a cool space for a celebration and Laura flew in, yes FLEW IN, to her wedding.
As if that wasn’t enough, the couple totally nailed the decor too – with Scott being really handy and Laura having a great eye for design, the overall look is gorgeous and very current. I won’t even mention the fact that Laura looks like Katy Perry crossed with an Old Hollywood Siren AND the photography from Nigel John is simply stunning…SO much love for this one…
Hannah and Nick decided to plan a ‘p*ss up in a brewery’ for their wedding day. Yes, those are their words, not mine and I’m pleased to report they pulled it off perfectly and with real style too. LOVE that Hannah incorporated her pretty botanical prints from home with the on-the-day decor. We always recommend looking to your belongings to work out how you’d like to style your wedding day as it results in a look that is completely true to you.
The best thing about marrying in an industrial city building is the incredible photo opportunities and this wedding is just brimming with them. The shots of Hannah and Nick on the roof of The Tetley building are SO dramatic. Ryan of Shutter Go Click has captured the essence of the couple and the venue perfectly.
My love for this wedding runs deep – there are three BIG reasons why it’s one of my all time favourites…Firstly, like me, the couple went to Sheffield Uni and held their wedding at many venues I know and love. Looking through their photos is like a trip down memory lane, I can almost live out their wedding day in my minds eye. It’s a great reminder that choosing your wedding venue based on familiar places can spark something truly special.
Secondly, it’s shot by the amazing Lee at Robbins Photographic, who always has the most stylish, fun and inventive couples. Claire and David’s wedding day is an absolute treat for the eyes.
And thirdly – the details of this gorgeous real wedding are featured in the RMW Book Your Day Your Way, which is released ON THURSDAY!!! If you haven’t already ordered your copy, you can do so here. We’re really excited to tell you that it’s already the No.1 Best Seller in the Fashion Category so a huge thank you to anyone who has preordered their copy. We can’t wait for you all to see it. But first, let’s enjoy Claire & David’s relaxed, Autumnal wedding day…
I always have a soft spot for a Sheffield wedding as it’s my university city and where I lived with my boyfriend for the first time, so I’ve loved putting together Jaye and Tom’s big day. I can totally vouch for Tamper Coffee too, in fact, I’m tempted to jump in the car and head back up North to visit the warehouse space they’ve just taken over in addition to their coffee shops, Jaye and Tom’s wedding reception just looks so cool, the styling is spot on.
Funnily enough I’m also a huge fan of Kate Halfpenny’s designs, and Jaye looks simply beautiful in her Halfpenny London gown. Kate’s gowns are always an absolute feast for the eyes and this one is no exception. The pretty lace crop top over the silky slip dress has got my heart all of a flutter – Kate knows how to design dresses that fit beautifully.
Enjoy this wedding lovely ones, it’s the perfect blend of romantic meets industrial styling…
I’m really excited to share this wedding with you, as gorgeous Bride Amy is wearing a dress by Needle & Thread, one of my favourite high street Bridal designers of the moment. Their dresses are decadently embellished, cut beautifully and offer something a little bit different to the rest of the Bridal world.
Amy and Nick’s venue is actually of a similar vein, a recently converted mill in Derbyshire, The West Mill is industrial yet rustic and the perfect blank canvas for a stylish big day, it definitely offers something very different venue wise.
Michaela and Luke’s big day is full of gorgeous details that you’ll be coveting for your own big day, even if you’re not getting married at an industrial style venue like Trinity Buoy Wharf, that heart light aisle backdrop may have you changing your decor plans immediately…
And as well as the gorgeous decor, and looking rather dapper themselves, this lovely pair managed to plan their London wedding all the way from Australia, which is no mean feat considering they embarked on lots of DIY projects too. But when it came down it, they just had to get married in the city they grew up. And in true British style, the summer weather was rather dark and gloomy, but it didn’t stop everyone from smiling and meant that Laura from Babb Photo could get some dramatic images of the couple against the London skyline.
