I adore weddings in beautiful outdoor venues but as a London Fine Art Wedding Photographer, I am also very lucky to work in some beautiful and unusual spaces, in the city. Warehouse venues are the perfect blank slate for an Industrial Chic Wedding; where gorgeous green and white styling and floral installations can still create a botanical, light and airy feel to your day.
These bridal separates, from Luella’s Bridal are embellished with beautiful beading and the simple white background of the warehouse setting show off the detail perfectly; bridal make-up from Mari Chase & Sylwia Kunysz is kept to oh-so-pretty blush and chocolate tones, and I love the contrast of this natural look in a pared back space, industrial chic with no hint of fussiness. Relaxed hair styles and flowing blush chiffon bridesmaid outfits from TH&TH complement the gentle styling, adding movement and softness to the structured lines of the venue.
Industrial chic weddings give complete freedom when it comes to decor and scope for floral installations are endless. I love this trailing floral chandelier created by the wonderful Moss & Stone Floral Design. An abundance of trailing clematis vines, gentle ferns and eucalyptus together with white umbellifers were the softest of textures against the blank walls. The chandelier created the perfect centrepiece for the ceremony aisle, and more gentle vines, curled around the uprights of cross back chairs from Classic Crockery carried the green and white styling through the scene.
Vines were also used to decorate the pretty white vintage stool from Vintage Amy, which made a beautiful cake stand for the elegant 2-tier cake from The Confetti Cakery, decorated with 2 wreaths of elegant leaves, complementing the botanical theme. The bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, were generous and loose arrangements, filled with jasmine vines, David Austen roses and white scabiosa; abundant but still light and airy in the spacious setting.
This industrial chic wedding allowed for more gentle botanical influences on the tablescape. The floral chandelier was reused to create a stunning top table arrangement, whilst single trailing vines kept the table uncluttered and airy, along with a simple blue-grey chiffon table runner from Kate Cullen Styling.
The stationery from Minted featured botanical illustrations of some of the very same plants used in the floral arrangements and the sweet little place names were attached to mini vials also holding foliage, for an extra lovely detail.
Such a simple and clear setting as a warehouse, works utterly harmoniously with one simple theme, carried throughout and the botanical influences is one that is very easy to achieve for styling a chic industrial wedding. The gorgeous bridal shoes from Bella Belle Shoes and hair accessories from Luella’s Bridal all carry these motifs, but without over powering any element of the day, staying subtle and completely in synch for a beautiful light and airy wedding.
If you are planning an industrial chic wedding I would love to hear from you.
