Inspiration For Industrial Chic Weddings
If a church wedding isn’t quite for you, perhaps an industrial sitting will fit the bill. A former warehouse or factory can provide a dramatic backdrop to your wedding photography and is sure to be a setting your guests will never forget. Here are some inspirational images gathered together by the Warehouse Home team for inspiration.
If you prefer a historic setting with a more traditional feel, this former mill in Derbyshire offers subtle industrial features such as a cast iron clad ceiling and exposed brick walls. The industrial textures add visual interest without dominating the space, leaving your wedding decor to do the rest. The expansive windows bring the outdoors inside, which you could complement with fresh foliage and perhaps small potted trees.
Vintage decor such as old signage is ideal for an industrial setting and is charming and quirky. Contact our friends Argent & Sable for a bespoke sign that you can keep after the wedding and hang up at home. Natural light from the rooftop windows at this London venue softens the original structural features. And bringing greenery into the space has given it a wild, overgrown appearance that fits the context perfectly.
Should you wish to soften the industrial features, mood lighting is ideal and neutral decor will also serve to maintain a calmer tone, ensuring the bride and groom remain the focus of the proceedings. Exposed beams and ventilation piping overhead provide the perfect place to hang lights and floral arrangements. Billowing white cloths are dramatic yet elegant and reinforce the romantic wedding atmosphere.
The most compelling reason to hold a warehouse wedding is surely the chance to contrast white decorative details with a raw industrial surrounding. A luxurious crystal chandelier hanging amidst cracked and rusted pillars is the epitome of industrial chic.
