Thought Foundation is a fantastic new venue which will be offering a very limited selection of dates for weddings each year. It’s an industrial space with lots to offer in terms of flexibility and the space really lends itself to getting creative. The husband and wife team at the helm want to offer a space that is useful to the local community and it’s a completely flexible diy venue.
Faye from Faye Darcy Events asked me to get on board with this shoot and help her style it. I jumped at the chance. We wanted to use a bright colour pallette with a bit of a nod to the tropical style the warmer weather has brought to my social media feeds recently.
Faye went for a really relaxed look for the bride and groom as she really wanted an informal feel and the decor needed to reflect that. I went for a floral hoop instead of a bouquet to tie in with the alternative, laid back style.
We set up a ceremony area using the industrial arch and wooden fruit crates to create an altar, with mismatched wooden chairs and festoon lighting.
The peacock chair is so fabulous! I simply dressed it with some foliage and a few flower heads. With a backdrop of the tropical balloon arch it create the perfect photo opportunity.
Sharon from Sadie May Cakes made a gorgeous cake hand painted with copper streaks and hot pink sugar flowers, we simply dressed it with foliage.
We set up pa top table on rustic trestle tables made from scaffolding boards. Dressed with a foliage garland, copper bottle vases, copper cutlery and amazing, colourful stationery from Amanda Michelle
Lux Lumina brought their showstopper glitterball heart which paired with rose gold sequin bunting from Emma Bunting made the perfect romantic backdrop.
