I do love a warehouse wedding venue, the space, atmosphere and light is always pretty magnificent. So I can see why this team of talented wedding suppliers today chose to host a styled shoot at Studio 24 in Leeds. It gave the perfect industrial backdrop to their rustic and foliage filled inspirational editorial. The Eddison lighting in particular was very dramatic and is perfect for evening or winter weddings to provide a serious style statement. Then there was the geometric greenery inspired cake that really makes impact along with the heavily embellished gowns teamed with stylish hair and make up. I love it all.
“Rustic Industrial? is it a thing? Well it is now!
When a trendy industrial vibe warehouse gets a touch of nature added with florals and greenery, you suddenly create an amazing look for weddings that incorporates something for everyone with industrial edge and a soft, rustic finish.
The vision of photographer Tim Dunk was clear and his style vision was realised by Donna of Ambience Venue Styling Halifax & Bradford with her use of seeded eucalyptus, Ruscus, Ferns and Norma Jean Roses. Candles and the soft, atmospheric lighting from Typical Type’s Eddison Lighting gave a truly remarkable canvas.
Leeds based The Bridal Emporium has the most stunning bridal gowns and Claire chose to showcase a range of dresses from designer Eliza Jane Howell which added a glamorous touch to the shoot. The three beautiful models Charlotte, Abi and Leyla gave the gowns both a serious and fun, relaxed look. With soft hair styles from Hannah of Verve Design Ilkley and a decadent make-up look from Annabel Bailey Make-up.
The style shoot was further reflected in the table styling from Ambience Venue Styling, complemented with stationery from Donut Press with a relaxed calligraphy and printed fern style. The shoot was completed with the addition of another fabulous cake from Sweet Sugar Sixpence which incorporated stark whites, florals, greenery and geometric shapes.”
This morning we are taking a peek at Tabitha and John’s gorgeous vineyard wedding, which occurred on May 28th 2016 at Spout Spring Estates, Tennessee. Not only were the happy couple the beaming stars of the show, but so was their beautiful daughter, Rose, who wore a little floral headband and made quite an adorable entrance to the event in a floral-decorated cart.
The ceremony was held under a grand leafy tree, decked out with hanging décor – white flowing fabric, a chandelier and metal lanterns filled with fresh florals. The day was tied together with a soft purple colour palette, which appeared in the flowers, the ties, bridesmaids’ dresses (in different shades), the amazing crafted art which held the wedding rings and the table settings at the reception.
I love that guests received bottled beer made by the couple as favours and the awesome sparkler exit at the end of the night. There was a shared tequila shot in honour of Tabitha’s father, which totally tugged at my heart strings. Lastly, that black and white photo of Tabitha kissing baby Rose and the sunset shots of the bride and groom frolicking in the vineyards were just perfection.
Friday fashion time lovelies. I have the some of the prettiest gowns on the block for your viewing this afternoon courtesy of NaomiNeoh and their 2017 Eden collection. Photographed amongst divine florals this lovely collection would work so perfectly for Spring brides in particular, with delicate fabrics and flowing lines. The Poppy Skirt really caught my eye with it’s appliqué tulle, it’s so unique and very special indeed. Then there is the super swishy Gwen with darling lace bodice that can be accessorised with a matching jacket for long lace sleeve goodness. It looks like bridal separates are here to stay, yay. Brides, you are going to adore these dresses. Enjoy.

WWW readers Elodie and Bart tied the knot on the 22nd July 2016 at Stoke Newington Town Hall followed by a reception at The Londesborough. It was important to them that their celebrations were informal and personal. They decided against a colour scheme and went mismatched, complete with pastel bridesmaid dresses and hessian bunting. The lovely fresh blooms were arranged by Elodie and her mum, there were wine boxes turned into cards, cork place names and wine bottles table names too.
Elodie wore the most divine gown with layers of tulle and cap sleeves, teamed with Jimmy Choos. Bart was suited and booted in a blue Paul Smith suit accessorised with a pink tie. So much style.
I do love a DIY wedding where loved ones come together to craft the perfect day for the happy couple. It just seems like the loveliest way to begin a marriage to me and creates such a personal celebration.
WWW readers Kirsty and Jack chose to marry on the 24th April 2016 at Moxhull Hall in the Midlands. They chose the venue after falling for it’s secret garden and chose to tie the knot outside. Next came the fresh and fun colour scheme, with details made in mint and pink, they really came to life. One of the biggest tasks was undertaken by bride Kirsty who made all of those fab fabric bouquets, it really helped them to achieve their £11, 000 budget too.
The bridesmaids looked amazing in their vibrant long flowing dresses and complimented Kirsty’s stunning lace gown just so. The whole bridal party looked utterly gorgeous.
Thanks so much to Helen Russell for sharing these sensational images today.
