This industrial luxe wedding inspiration at Deighton Lodge shows us how it should be done, with minimal styling, a simple and chic wedding gown and paired back groom style, it’s cool, urban vibe and clean backdrop is perfect for an industrial luxe wedding. Here we catch up with shoot coordinator and stylist Jen of My Pretties UK who tells us all about the inspiration behind the shoot and how it was created…
“I was approached by the lovely Natalie Ellis to design and plan a shoot at Deighton Lodge. Natalie already had some fantastic suppliers on board and my role was to create a design and help bring it to life.”
“I had wanted to do something quite minimalistic and industrial for a while and when I saw the barn at Deighton Lodge, I knew this was the perfect place for this theme. It still had to be heavily design-led and on trend whilst retaining an effortless look.”
“Francesca from Littles & Loves Photography was one of the suppliers that Natalie had already approached to be involved. I hadn’t worked with her before which is always a little daunting, you can never be sure if you will understand each other’s style or vision, or if your personalities will clash. I really needn’t have worried though, Fran was an absolute pleasure to be around. Very relaxed, cheery and collaborative, not to mention that her images are stunning!”[line]

“From the styling perspective I wanted it to be eye catching, modern but easy enough for couples to recreate. Lots of candle light, chrome accessories and grey tones were used throughout to give it that industrial edge.”
“My absolute favourite florist and business partner Francesca of Frenchie Loves Flowers created the coolest bride’s bouquet I’d ever seen. We had been joking that ‘dead’ flowers were going to be big for 2019 but when she incorporated shepherd’s purse, cotton plant and pampas grass into the mix I realised she was absolutely right and the overall effect was seriously cool. Francesca always delivers, I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
“Where the Ribbon Ends always creates stunning cakes without fail and when I told Gayle I wanted something very understated and industrial I knew I didn’t need to worry. She created a beautifully minimalistic two-tier, concrete effect cake and added cotton and shepherd’s purse to match Francesca’s bouquet. She also created a simple white cake with added dried foliage. Both cakes were beautiful, simple and more than we could have hoped for.”
“Hair and makeup were important elements for this shoot, not only did I want our bride to look stunning, but very understated too. It would have been impossible to make our model Grace look bad, but Natalie Ellis really enhanced her features with dewy skin, red lips and a bold eyebrow.”
“I’m a sucker for the details when it comes to weddings and stationery might be my favourite detail. Bianca from Bianco Blanc Papier was another of the suppliers I wasn’t familiar with before this shoot. I loved her designs and was very excited to work with her. I asked for white with black text, minimalistic and simple. As well as producing exactly what I had asked for, Bianca incorporated beautiful layering in her suite using vellum, wax seals and leather. I was blown away and can’t wait to work with her again this year.”
“Carolyn at Gray Starling Designs added to the design with bespoke acrylic signs and steel arbour. It’s always a pleasure to have Carolyn on my shoots, I have nicknamed her ‘the flat-lay queen’.”
“Finding the right bridal outfit for Grace was so important to this shoot, I contacted Stephanie Moran Couture to see if she would be interested in collaborating with us. I visited her gorgeous boutique in Tadcaster and perused her rails of beautiful bridal wear. At first, I thought I wanted a jumpsuit but after talking to Stephanie we settled on the most simple and elegant two-piece from her Bespoke Bride Collection. I couldn’t believe it when our model tried them on, it looked as though they had been made for her.”
“Not to leave out the fellas, Kristian’s Boss suit and simple white t-shirt was supplied by Ashworth & Bird in Wakefield, and he looked really cool and relaxed on the day.”
“The shoot really couldn’t have gone any smoother, even on a chilly day that didn’t stop us having fun and creating something we are all very proud of.”
“I hope it has showcased that sometimes less is more; or rather, less is just enough. This simple but striking design could quite easily grace the pages of Vogue Magazine and it’s a design I hope to re-create for my couples over the next few years.”
