Jules and Tom’s Industrial Urban City Wedding

Good morning beautiful people! We have the ultimate urban wedding to share with you here at Festival Brides today. Having lived in London for many years, we totally feel the vibe of this Thameside city wedding and we’re hopelessly in awe of how the incredible Kirsty Mackenzie has captured the verve and vibrancy of this day! United down at the Trinity Buoy Wharf in London’s hip East-End, Tom and Jules celebrated their love in view of the city’s one and only lighthouse. This creative riverside community space plays host to lots of outdoor artwork and installations, making the perfect blank industrial canvas for the couple to whip-up their super-cool urban festival party.  Decorated with handmade dreamcatchers, dancing wind chimes and laced table décor, we love the simple and effective styling that Jules created. In true free-spirited fashion, this Grace Loves Lace adorned bride paves the way for all that want to do things a little differently on their big day….

Roxy and James’ Rural Bohemian DIY Wedding

Five cups of coffee, half a pack of tissues and bucket-load of lemon sorbet…. and I’m finally ready to share my very own Real Wedding with you beautiful Festival Brides readers! Writing a Real Wedding feature about my own wedding has been a total emotional delight. I think I’ve brought a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘happy tears’… I’m sure most brides will agree that this pinnacle day in all of relationship history is so sacred that it’s often indescribable to people that weren’t actually there with you, living and breathing the moment for themselves. However, through bloodshot eyes and smiling cheeks, I’ve really tried my best to share our wedding with you as honestly and authentically as I can, in the hope that our alternative, outdoor, rustic, bohemian day will give inspiration to all you free-spirited brides. Think hippy, laidback with an ethereal touch of old-chic glamour and a whole lotta LOVE and you will be on your way to envisioning our day. Using Festival Brides and Pinterest as my guide, (OK, so I know I’m biased, but Festival Brides is THE best inspirational blog for brides like us!), we managed to create a dreamy DIY wedding on a shoestring budget. With just a third of most couple’s average wedding-spend, I think we’ve proved that you don’t have to break your back (or the bank) trying to afford your perfect wedding. The only thing you really need….is love.
