Retro inspired DIY wedding at The Conservatory at Barbican Centre


If you have never been to the Conservatory at Barbican Centre, you must go there soon. What a magical place – a huge Brutalist concrete structure with a surprising tropical garden inside its heart. This place is worth a visit or planning a wedding there!

I am pleased to present you with a selection of photos from this DIY, retro-inspired Barbican wedding of Natasha and Thomas, who chose this unique location for their big day.

 It was a lovely, warm wedding filled with love, surrounded by a big bunch of friends and family. The little details that create an atmosphere of the wedding were carefully planned to match the theme colours. Wherever I looked I could see something that a friend or a family member had created especially for this day: tables decorated with origami paper flowers hand-made by the brother of the bride, vases made by friends, dry petal confetti on the tables, little flowers tied to hand packed favours crocheted by the bride AND a totally original and meaningful wedding cake made by the Mother of the bride. Everything was thought of and cared for on this day. I shall not forget about the band led by Thomas’ Best Man, Alex!

Natasha looked stunning in her vintage-style wedding dress with a net headpiece. The bow on her dress, you can guess, was handmade by the Mother. Thomas complemented his navy suit with a retro wool tie in theme blue colour and original vintage cuff links.

This stunning wintery bouquet, boutonnières and all flower decorations were arranged by Natasha’s Auntie. 

Congratulations Natasha and Thomas!
