Charming UK Warehouse Wedding: Laura + Karl

UK wedding

Even when friends + family seemed unsure about some of their ideas, Laura + Karl stuck to their guns, since they always knew they wanted a wedding that was fun, personal, and one-of-a-kind! When they found Camp and Furnace in Liverpool, England, it seemed meant to be, as it fit perfectly with the carefree vision they had for their day.

From Laura, We chose the Camp – a huge warehouse space – for its floor-to-ceiling printed scene of a forest, vintage caravans, festoon lighting, large olive trees, ping pong tables and huge projection screen. We knew that with just a few bits of our own, we’d have the perfect place. We made or collected everything ourselves with the help of family and friends. Our parents helped with everything – tassel making, table runners, invitations, order of service, jar and bottle collecting. My best friend and maid of honour is a make-up artist, her sister-in-law-to-be did all our flowers (2 days before she gave birth!), and my boss has another business which is a mobile bar – he very kindly brought the old Citroen H van and served the first drink for everyone!

Sounds like a wedding I would have loved to have been guest at! :) Big thanks to Babb Photo for the super gorgeous images + congrats to Laura + Karl!

Such a perfect ceremony exit!

Seeing each other at either end of the aisle and the ceremony itself. We knew it would be good because our priest could be/should be a comedian. There were more tears of laughter than joy! Also, towards the end of the night, when a lot of people had left and only the die-hards were there on the dance floor - with the DJ dancing behind his decks to "Jump in the Line" by Harry Belafonte, which is now our unofficial wedding song since we never had a first dance.

If you’re getting married in a church but don’t go regularly, then go more often and get to know your priest - it makes it so much more personal. Although you can’t help but be consumed by your wedding on the run up, try not to give yourself too much to do, or spend unnecessary money. Stick to your initial plan, and don’t add things in just because you’ve been overloaded with ideas. I believe less is more. The best bit of advice from a friend was make sure you get chance to dance, so that’s exactly what we did. And if you don’t want a first dance because you know you’ll hate it, then don’t put yourself through it!
