LUKE & MELISSA SALMESTONE GRANGE & THE ODDS SOCIAL CLUB ISLE OF THANET
We always love a wedding thats a bit quirky and todays was no exception! We had been looking forward to this one, we got along so well with Luke and Melissa from the first day we met them and knew this wedding was going to be completely unlike any other we had ever photographed!
We had the chance to work at the amazing Salmestone Grange again. This venue always plays well to any alternative theme but it is almost as if the venue was made for their wedding ceremony.
Themed as a gothic/steampunk/victoriana wedding with the main colours being black and purple and pretty much all reception decor, shoes, bags and dresses being handmade or customised by Melissa, the details were going to play a huge part! From the hours spent on Melissa's ivy woven hair, to the glueing and glittering of everything including champagne glasses, down to the dress details she added and the detailed table plans.
Its always lovely when a bride and groom spend so much time and effort on making and decorating everything themselves. I remember the first meeting we had with them both and the boxes filling their house of wedding decorations already started well over a year before their wedding. Now thats some organisation skills haha!
