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.

  • It just doesn't get any cuter. 🥰 @emilyblack.photography at @devonporthouse with the most adorable flower girls EVER!! Top tip from gorgeous bride Debbie - buy your aisle runner rather than renting. That way you're allowed to use it inside or out, you can drop petals on it, and have fun practising on it with all your little flower girls the day before!! #aislerunner #londonweddingphotographer #londonbride #englishweddingblog #loveintentionally #makeadventure#visualcoop#loveauthentic #intimatewedding#elopementphotographer#helloelopement #elopmentweddings #junebugs #wanderingweddings #theknot #loveislove #photobugcommunity #loveandwildhearts #londonwedding #londonweddingvenue
