Style Series: Industrial Weddings

Hi Everyone,


Hope you are all well! Today’s style series is all about Industrial weddings.  This is a trend that has been on the rise now for the past years and works so well for anyone wanting a really modern, trendy, urban chic style wedding.  It’s a very contemporary look and really is very beautiful.

If this is a style you are considering for your wedding start with the venue, this is a very important factor for this style.  There are some amazing spaces in the US which are perfect for this trend and of course where it all started such as The Green Building in New York

But fear not UK Brides, this style of venue has seen as surge in popularity and so there are a good few now popping up around the country.  Old warehouses, mills and factories are getting new leases of life by being renovated towards this style of wedding.  The below is a beautiful venue called The West Mill in Derbyshire, great pick for an industrial style wedding.

Once you have selected your venue really consider the room styling.  The decor you use will really make or break this look.  It works well if you stick with modern styling.

Candles will really add the touch of romance and they also help to soften the venue.  Industrial venues are very much bare brick, peeling paint, exposed pipe works etc. so the use of light really helps to create the ambience.  As you can see from the above image the white roses in clear glass vases work beautifully well mixed with the candles to create a stunning aisle line.

A wall of fairy lights looks exquisite for this type of wedding style!  They really help to create such a beautiful feel dangling against the bare brick, not to mention really working well to bring to romance and create a stunning talking point!  If you’re thinking of creating a fairy light wall decide whether you want larger bulbs or smaller bulbs as the larger bulbs means you can get away with less strings because the larger bulbs make for a bigger impact.

While we are on the topic of lighting check out the below inspiration pictures, there are so many beautiful ways of  using light in industrial venues.

Do some research and really think about the style of decor you want in the venue, if you’re looking to go for a more typical wedding style it can work in this style of venue just as long as it’s properly executed.  Try to stick to glass and floral centerpieces, as this is in keeping with the more traditional wedding feel but still fits in with a contemporary venue style.

A rustic style also does actually work wonderfully well in an industrial setting.  Wooden tables and chairs with lovely vintage style floral centerpieces look amazing.

Typically though a more modern approach really comes to life here! Think long wooden banquet tables with low florals and plenty of candles.  Mix tall and small candles together with some small vases dotted down the long banquet table, this is a beautiful way of decorating longer table without having to really overspend.

The great thing about industrial is that you really can work different styles with it, rustic industrial looks just as beautiful as a glam industrial choice so don’t be afraid to add your own touches of personality and tastes to this wonderful style of venue.  It really is the venue that brings the industrial vibe, so if you nail that you can adapt it to match pretty much any style you like!
