Happiness radiates throughout Tony and Robs vintage styled gay wedding at The Roost Dalston. The couple both live in Australia and so had to plan the majority of their day remotely, top of their list was picking a very distinctive and eclectic venue which they definitely succeeded in, creating style and colour from the props and artwork to inspire the decor perfectly. Both of their smiles are infectious and both grooms looked extremely dapper in their M.J.Bale suits. Their intention for the day was to be as informal and intimate as possible, enjoying every moment with their closest friends and family who, for some, were meeting for the first time producing a real mix of tears and laughter throughout, I'm sure you will also be smiling your way through this same-sex celebration.


"For us this wasn’t just a wedding - it was also a chance for some of our oldest family and friends to meet each other for the very first time since Tony is from the UK originally but now lives in Australia which is where Rob is from. We avoided seeing each other the night before the wedding, right up until the moment that we walked down the aisle. We also didn’t see most of our guests before then (outside of their wedding party) meaning the moment we walked into the room was the first time that we saw most of our oldest friends from both countries standing side-by-side. Definitely a moment we won’t forget!" - Tony & Rob

The Roost Dalston Wedding

A former Victorian pub 'The Roost' Dalston was the perfect setting for this intimate city wedding. This same-sex couple decorated the London wedding venue perfectly with colourful bunting and a pretty impressive 'Til Death Do Us Party light sign. The food at this wedding looked delicious by Kitchen Party Catering and how can we not mention the semi-naked wedding cake displayed magnificently on a tree stump cake stand. Story + Colour captured this celebration excellently with so many genuine, authentic moments throughout the day.


"We planned the wedding in one initial trip to the UK (where we picked the venue and caterer) and then organised the rest remotely. So the most important thing was picking a unique venue with a distinct style that could inspire everything else (graphic design, invites, flowers, cake etc). We picked The Roost, an old Victorian pub which is now a photography studio, as it felt uniquely British and was full of vintage, eclectic props and artwork." - Tony & Rob

This couples advice is to plan ahead, get organised, but at the same time don’t stress the small stuff. It’s a job that’s never done and you’ll use as much time as you allow yourself to keep making changes.
