Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration…
We have a real feast for the eyes today with this Industrial meets Boho bridal shoot held at East Yorkshire wedding venue, 92 Burton Road.
I love the fusion of these two styles – the modern bridal styling works perfectly with the edgy industrial vibes and colourful graffiti backdrop.
Over to the team to tell us more about the inspiration and her thought process behind it…
Where did you get your inspiration from?
The concept for the shoot at 92 Burton Road, was Industrial meets Boho – two of the biggest current UK wedding trends – to create modern, distinctive inspiration which is achievable for brides. The warehouse venue is one of the coolest and most sort after venues in East Yorkshire and there are so many interesting spots around the city to capture great images, like the stunning mural at Kelham Island, only a short walk away.
How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life?
Jen from My Pretties organised the shoot & had worked with some of these amazing suppliers before & knew she wanted to involve them. Others she approached directly, as a big admirer of their work. We were so lucky to have so much talent in one place with such stunning results, I can’t recommend each and every one of these suppliers enough.
What details are your favourite, and why?
Fran from Frenchie Loves Flowers created such an innovative bouquet which has since inspired other florists recently. Her use of palms, cotton, dried elements and a pop of colour from the Anthuriums was a bold alternative choice suited for brides wanting something a bit different & a bit wow.
We used lots of texture through the whole shoot with the sculptural dried flowers and foliage, Macrame, and even the cake had a textured appearance, all bold items standing out in the bare warehouse environment. The colours in the cake, (by Kate at The Urban Cakehouse) complemented the rest of the details perfectly. A hexagon cake stand was dressed with dried Pampas Grass to really make it a feature.
Do you have any styling tips for readers looking to emulate this shoot?
Stick to a muted colour palette, to get the true Boho feel: neutrals & earthy tones are best. Dried flowers and foliage are also the key to nailing this look.
What is it that makes your shoot unique?
This was the first time we had seen these elements of Boho and Industrial come together in this way. The industrial warehouse location is a blank canvas for couples to truly make their own, showcasing how you can blend the two trends seamlessly.
Two unique elements to the shoot was Typical Type’s, new Edison Light Table which was perfect to create a huge floral installation around, with hanging bulbs below, whilst their Edison Moongate made such an impact for the ceremony backdrop.
Another huge UK trend featured with TucksFizz on board with their stylish blue tuk tuk serving up gin cocktails.
What’s the most important tip you have for couples planning their wedding?
Don’t be afraid to mix it up a little. You can have a boho wedding in an Industrial space or an industrial wedding in a barn, you just need the right people to work with, who understand your vision and can make it come to life.
