Some couples might balk at the idea of a blank canvas venue waiting to be filled, but Claire and Ricky relished the thought of being able to put their own stamp on their wedding at Two Ton Max, captured by Elleni Toumpas.
“As we chose an empty venue for our reception we had to decide on every little detail – from our furniture and layout to our caterers and bonbonniere. It was quite a process to bring it all together but SO much fun,” Claire explains.
As well as a helping hand from family and friends, Claire and Ricky enlisted the services of some talented vendors to bring their plan to fruition. Technical Events took care of all the sound and lighting whilst cascading foliage by Flowersmith Flowers added warmth to the room, paired with wooden furniture from Dress My Wedding and additional pieces from Dann Event Hire.
With their meticulous planning and dream team in place, this couple say they were able to relax on the day and cherish what was important to them: “nieces and nephews dancing, an elderly family member laughing or just the small details like the smiles on peoples’ faces.”
And as much as the wedding was about the two of them, you could say that they were somewhat upstaged. Claire explains, “We felt so lucky to share our day with our unborn child. I was 21 weeks pregnant which was so very special and we can’t wait to share our photos and memories of the day with our baby when they’re older!”
