Real Weddings: Hannah & Rob's Art deco inspired gold & burgundy weddingby Liz Gatherer
Rob had a glass of rosé waiting for Hannah when she arrived on their first date, so things got off to a great start for this couple! Hannah and Rob chose Northbrook Park in Surrey for their art deco themed wedding, they chose burgundy and gold for their colour scheme.
Art deco personalised wedding favours and stationery
Hannah and Rob wanted to share their love story with their family and friends in a special way and found the perfect way to do this with Wedition, a personalised keepsake booklet which they gave to their guests on the day of their wedding. Their Wedition was styled to compliment their colour scheme of burgundy and gold and was designed to match their art deco wedding invitations.
Hannah and Rob included their proposal story within their personalised wedding magazine along with an introduction to their wedding party, an exclusive interview with their three page boys and even an interview with their stunning border collie Leo! The couple’s favourite photos were included, not just of the pair of them together as a couple, but also their childhood photos! There was a fun ‘Who is more likely to…’ Mr and Mrs quiz as well as the all important wedding menu which was on the back cover.
"I first met Liz at a wedding fair and went immediately home and told my husband to be we had to have them at our wedding! We ended up using them as our favours and all of our guests absolutely loved them!
Liz was fantastic all the way through the process of creating them, and understood what we were looking for. The magazines themselves were amazing quality, and we have wonderful mementos to take away with us.
Thank you so much Liz for everything!" - Hannah
Art deco gold and burgundy wedding cake
An impressive three tier wedding cake was designed for the couple by Quarter Past Cake incorporating their art deco wedding theme and colours of burgundy and gold. The bottom layer had a velvet effect with gold geometric shapes whilst the two top tiers had a more subtle block effect.
Sweetie table for art deco themed wedding with gold and burgundy
A really fun addition to the day was the sweetie table which was available to guests to help themselves to at the wedding reception. There was a fine selection of sweets along with gold calligraphy treat bags and art deco props including burgundy feather fans, pearl necklaces and mirrors, a subtle nod to the couple’s love of film.
Burgundy groom’s outfit at an art deco themed wedding
The groom choose a dark navy blue suit with tweed waistcoat, burgundy velvet tie and completed his look with a gold pocket watch.
Wedition Hot Tip: some of our couples in the past have chosen to include the details of the groom’s pocket watch within their Wedition. This is a great way to let your guests know whether it has been passed down through the family; engraved with a special message; or has a design which reflects the groom’s job or hobbies. Wedition is the ideal way to share intricate details such as these with your wedding guests.
An ideal venue for an art deco themed wedding
Hannah and Rob had attended a friend’s wedding in April 2016 at Northbrook Park and fell in love with the venue, even though they were no-where near to getting engaged at that time, they knew it was the perfect setting for their art deco inspire wedding day.
Wedition Hot Tip: ask your venue on the visits leading up to your day to show you any quirky features or settings that they know work well for photographs. As you can see, Hannah and Rob had great fun posing for photos on the wedding swing at Northbrook Park!
A great ice breaker for your wedding guests
Hannah and Rob used their Wedition to introduce their wedding party to their guests and even included a fun interview with their three page boys. This is a great ice breaker for your guests at your wedding to learn more about the key people in your wedding party whom they might not have met before. It’s the ideal way to get guests who might be feeling a bit shy to start conversations with others on their table.
