Hey Brides Up North?  It’s Fridaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

To celebrate, and maybe (just maybe) get you in the mood for letting your hair down a little, we’re featuring this fun styled wedding shoot which was directed and shot by Kristin and Mark Williamson, from events and photography company, Mr and Mrs W.  By blinding you with lights, neon, glitter and confetti their team are here to remind you just how much fun weddings can be!

kristin says: We took inspiration from 90’s rave to 70’s disco and set it within the warehouse venue B’Eat Street Manchester

Our inspiration for this shoot was to show that a wedding should be a fun, rather than stressful event, with the bride and groom plus all their friends and family have a raging good time. Our DJ, Flic made sure we did this on the day by playing us some great  music to get us all into the disco vibe.

As a team we are really excited that the industrial look is coming to the wedding industry as it can be so diverse. We hope we have given everyone a real insight into this style and whilst we know that most weddings aren’t going to look like this, couples can take elements from the images and really turn their wedding party into something really memorable.  

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love getting the music on and having a really good dance!
