Lock 91 wedding 

Boho industrial gorgeousness on the blog today. Shot in the unique wedding venue Lock 91 in the centre of the city of Manchester.

If you are a city couple wanting a boho vibe to your day this is the blog for you!

Boho weddings can be associated with barns or outdoor style venues. but this shoot will show you you can have boho vibes in the city centre!

The venue: Lock 91 manchester

The venue was the trendy Lock 91 Bar & Lounge. A 19th-century lock keepers cottage in the heart of Manchester City Centre. Lock 91 is the perfect wedding venue for quirky, fun couples!

We love this wedding venue for its industrial characters, quirky features and laid back boho style.

They have the option to hire the whole venue for exclusivity or hire one of the 3 rooms. They even have 2 outside options, which is always a great plus with a city venue. 


Hexagon wooden arch

Zoey styled this with a gorgeous wooden and copper hexagon arch. Lucy from Little White Attic added the stunning macrame. Finished with a stunning floral display from Perfect Bouquet full of Flower

Macramé is back with a bang, and we’re loving it! The way we have seen it so creatively used in boho weddings got us inspired.

It just had to be the focal point of our shoot. As well as being used throughout the styling and Lisa even used it in the cake design. Lucy also supplied us with the most beautiful macrame pieces, she really does have an amazing talent.

Styling the outside space of Lock 91

We wanted to utilise inside and outside of the venue, Lock 91.

The venue has two outside terraces, and we made full use of the one on the ground floor. Setting up two areas outside one was a cake area and the other was the wedding table. The cake area was scattered in bold colourful cushions. 

We had the macramé canopy hanging over the stunning cake provided by Urban Cakehouse. Lisa smashed the brief on the cake, carrying the colour palette through the cake. She also added a hexagon tier adding macramé detailing.


Colourful wedding styling

The wedding table was full of colour, we chose a jewel colour palette with accents of copper. Couples shouldn’t be afraid of using colour and we wanted to show how to be bold with it! There was colour added through the candles, table runner and napkins.

Kat, from Perfect Bouquet full of flower, carried them through in the gorgeous floral displays. These all complemented the copper and glass charger plates beautifully. The look was complete with the copper detail stationery from raspberry toast.

Lock 91 Wedding

For us, shoots are about collaborating with other wedding suppliers and for us all to have the chance to be creative, show our skills and passion.

The whole shoot was expertly photographed by Emma Boyle Photography. After meeting with Emma and showing her the mood board we knew she would be able to capture the shoot showing off the style and theme perfectly.

That being said, it’s a team effort! Everyone on the shoot has an equally important role, and for us its about getting that whole team right!

Lucky for us each time we do a shoot we always pick an ace team!
