Modern Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama Wedding | Jo & Rob

A colourful and modern wedding at the Royal College of Music & Drama in Cardiff with vintage dress and homemade craft details

I’m excited to share Jo and Robs vibrant and modern Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama wedding. Jo and Rob added lots of vibrant creative DIY detail. Paired with beautiful flowers and a vintage dress, this wedding had everything.

Rob’s an actor, so RWCMD seemed like a very fitting venue for their wedding celebrations. I adore the building and can say it’s one of my favourite pieces of modern architecture in Cardiff. The atrium is light and airy with views into Bute Park. Most of all, it’s perfect city venue and blank canvas where you can be as alternative or creative as you want!

Jo looked amazing in her mum’s ivory Ossie Clark wedding dress. She channelled a ‘silver screen’ goddess! Her hand-tied florals from ‘Flowers, I do’ complement the look.

The ceremony took place in the theatre room. A large modern, auditorium with wood panelling. Rob’s friends and fellow band mates, The Buzztones performed Acappella.  

Orange and Blue colour theme

They opted for a fresh and bright orange and blue colour theme. Jo handmade lots of decor details, from origami to covered books for table centres. As a little last minute detail, Jo picked up some confetti the evening before. Because the terrace the RWCMD is narrow, it’s the most confined confetti shot I’ve taken. But with some creative planning and help from Mike the MC, Jo & Rob nailed it! The best bit is, it’s my favourite confetti shot ever.

The photos are amazing! You really captured the feeling of the day – it’s going to be really difficult to choose which ones to print. Thanks for your patience with us for the group shots on the day and for taking such beautiful photographs. – Joanna & Rob
