Two Stunning Dresses + Breakfast Wedding Inspiration in a Monastery

Medieval Monastery Wedding Inspiration

Have you ever considered a brunch or breakfast wedding? The LARK Workshop teamed up with event designers Rebecca Marie Weddings to show you what it’s all about! (HINT: It’s glam, luxe, and something we’d like to see more of! We’ve got not one, but two dramatic wedding dresses, a neutral color palette up against the moody setting of Blackfriars Priory, hanging yarn decor, ceramic place settings and a trio of architectural wedding cakes. Anna Beth Photography shares all about the inspiration:

Rustic Italian vibes in a moody medieval monastery but with an ultra modern luxe vibe. Although shot in the UK in Gloucester, The shoot oozes destination wedding vibes and the priory which it was shot in was built in 1278! There aren’t many wedding venues which are so old! Inspiration for those who would like a high end, unique wedding with character and embrace the moody vibes.

The Unbridled was the host of this fab workshop. Are you ready to see it all? Let’s check it out!
