The couple chose a neutral and natural color palette of nudes, greenery and some black. They invested a big portion of their £180k budget on the flowers, decorations and hiring the incredible Blomboy, to bring it all together for them on the day. It was also really important to them to make sure they had the very best food and drink for their guests. The wedding cake was a real masterpiece, done in black, with three different tiers and gold leaf.

The guys developed this weird attraction to internet culture, such as Vaporwave, plantwave and Lo-Fi so they tried to incorporate various elements from the subculture through things such as pink rope lights, large monstera leaves and so on. The ceremony, held outside among the trees was decorated with simple wooden alter, benches for their guests to sit on and even more greenery. As they walked back up the aisle as husband and wife their guests showered them with leaves.

The bride was wearing a catchy white wedding dress with black leaf appliques and the groom chose an olive green three-piece suit and a white shirt. The groomsmen were wearing all black and the bridesmaids were wearing black illusion neckline tops and cropped pants. The bouquets were made of greenery and leaves only, no blooms, the bridesmaids’ bouquets were carrying spray painted monstera leaves.
