A Thoroughly Modern Marriage with Ace Hotel and Knot & Pop

13th Jun

A wedding showcase with creative flair...


On Friday, 4th of June we were welcomed by the Ace Hotel and the award winning wedding planners, Knot & Pop for a wedding showcase with a difference. Located on the rooftop of Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel, Knot & Pop produced an evening to inspire the more imaginative couples.

‘A Thoroughly Modern Marriage’ was styled beautifully by Knot & Pop to showcase the event spaces at the Ace Hotel, whilst allowing guests to experience the essence of a modern wedding. Ace Hotel and Knot & Pop created an exhibition of suppliers and inspiration that challenge conventional wedding etiquette. However, they didn’t insist on chucking out all of the wedding traditions we love, and encouraged us to ‘go with them, ditch them or give them a twist’. With this motto in mind, the event was an array of alternative ideas, as well as a redefined traditional interpretations.

Some of the best of London’s event suppliers showcased at the event, and we were treated to the whole modern wedding experience from a makeup masterclass to pre-wedding fitness tips from Frame. The Outnet showed us alternative outfits for brides, Whistles exhibited their contemporary menswear collection, whilst Halfpenny London provided vintage inspired bridal wear. There was also personalised jewellery from Laura Lee and decorations from Pea Green Boat Weddings and Bobbin and Bow.

Knot & Pop styled two themed tablescapes with product from House of Hackney and SCP and intricately designed menus from modern calligraphy studio, Lamplighter London. Every detail was perfectly thought-out and the lucky Modern Marriage guests were welcome to take a seat and try the mini taster menu from Ace Hotel.

Across from the dining room, our Retro booth provided guests with a sample of what they can expect when they hire The Flash Pack for their big day. We had some special guests, such as the talented Kate Halfpenny (Halfpenny London) pop inside the booth and try out our unique range of props with everyone agreeing that a Flash Pack photo booth was essential for a contemporary wedding. Our hand-made photo booth selection is adaptable and versatile - complementing any wedding theme. But don’t take our word for it!...Try out our Booth Styler to build your own customised wedding experience.
