What makes the Urban Industrial look?

This style is fast becoming a popular choice for a relaxed but ‘cool’ inner city wedding. Think large industrial buildings, exposed brick walls, long wooden tables without tablecloths. There are a number of beautiful wedding venues popping up with cater to this rustic yet refined style which make a perfect backdrop to these styling elements.

Urban Industrial colours and patterns

Urban industrial is all about texture. Think concrete, wood and brick. Any colour can be integrated but try and keep it to something natural to create that ‘not even trying’ style.

How to get the Urban Industrial look for your wedding?

Head to B and Q, stock up on concrete blocks and think about greenery or succulents rather than perfectly arranged flowers. The little details are really what helps these rough surfaces soften and add a touch of luxury. Think either gold or black cutlery, some beautiful hand blown glass vases, dyed napkins, or some extra special glassware will make the look refined and deliberate. Make sure to include some subtle fairy light for when the night sets in to help create more intimacy in what are usually quite large, open plan urban spaces.

Concrete Candlestick

Simple, but effective. Dot these around a greenery runner, they will help link with any concrete elements of the space.



A great way to add interest to your table. You can put anything in these from greenery, to fairy lights to little ornaments of interest to add a bit of personality to your theme.


Fabric Napkins

Always a great touch for your guests and to make your tables look great. Hand dyed or plain, keep the fabric natural like a linen for a more relaxed look.


Glass vases

The more handblown and irregular the better. Keep to natural colours or clear to add more greenery to your tables.


Gold Cutlery

A detail often overlooked, but can really add a luxe touch to your tables. Either black, bronze or gold would look great in this scheme, from traditional to more contemporary shapes, to frame each place setting.



Another overlooked detail but well worth the extra investment. These contemporary shaped glasses with the gold rim create interest whilst keeping things simple.


Black and Gold Candlesticks

Some people can be frightened by black, but paired with gold this adds a luxe touch to the rougher materials of an industrial space. The candles are great when the night draws in too.



A great alternative to flowers, keep them green and natural or think about more vibrant varieties to add a pop of colour.


Black and Gold Candlesticks

A simpler version than those on the left, a more subtle but effective options to add candlelight to your space.
