Urban botanicals & industrial luxe – a refreshing new look for modern weddings, with Amanda Karen Photography

Copper and succulents for a Refinery wedding with Amanda Karen Photography Essex (18)

Our pages are so often filled with soft, feminine styling ideas and fabulous floral-filled stately home weddings. My heart is equally drawn to urban celebrations with a quirky or chic aesthetic, and today’s shoot from lovely Amanda Karen Photography combines the best of both worlds with a fabulous floral curtain and sleek, copper styling touches.

The Refinery by Drake and Morgan is such a brilliant venue: in Regent’s Place, central London, and with a cool and urban interior, it works perfectly for this industrial luxe wedding style, brought together by Carmela weddings.

Copper is still such a major trend, and the perfect complement to soften its shine is succulents. The greenery in the tablescapes is perfect for a wedding all year round, and I adore the little details as much as the breathtaking curtain of foliage. Striking geometric shapes in the cake and stationery add to the look.

Our bride wears a stunning dress by Truvelle from Heart Aflutter Bridal. The sparkle and sensuous shape of the dress are so incredibly beautiful – the flowing skirt is graceful and perfect for a city chic wedding celebration.
