DIESEL PRESENTS ‘BRAVE NATIVES DIESEL ISLAND’ LAUNCH @ MC MOTORS
Earlier on in the year we hosted a product launch for denim giants Diesel at MC Motors. The event featured a live catwalk show with models sporting the brand’s autumn/winter collections. The event was a huge success and with the day’s proceedings drawing to a close guests then headed through into the basement of Ruby House to cap off the day’s event. Check out these great images of the set up designed and produced by the team at Spice Lumb.
Luv Luv Luv Records Launch Party @ MC Motors
We recently played host to the official launch party of recently established independant label Luv Luv Luv Records at our MC Motors location featuring the live return of multi-platinum selling artist Florence & The Machine.
Set on an unusually sweltering September evening, the event featured perforances from a selection of the label’s newest signees including, the blues-tinged Jamie N Commons, London based art-rockers Theme Park, the boldly named Spector, and of course what was to be the main attraction of the evening, appearing in front of packed house, a fantastic full-band performance from Florence Welch and her well-oiled musical machine. Sporting a new hair-do, the South-London songstress showcased material from her up and coming album ‘Ceremonials’ along with belting out soon-to-be classics from her back catalogue, closing the event in spectacular fashion.
Barbara and Mark’s MC Motors Wedding
Here’s some fantastic images of the recent wedding of Barbara and Mark at MC Motors. After getting married at St. Mary Moorfields Church in Bishopsgate the happy couple arrived down our alleyway via pink taxi. There was a vintage 1950s feel to proceedings with Barbara in her beautiful Candy Anthony prom style dress and the bridesmaids standing out from the crowd in sassy yellow polka dotted numbers.
With the chemistry of the Irish-Aussie crowd bubbling nicely the scene was set for a good ol’ knees up with music provided courtesy of rockabilly outfit The Hightown Crows and MC Motors regulars The Wedding Smashers. The newly-weds then had their profile shots taken next door in Ruby House while the underground bar played host to those late night owls still standing at the end.
We’d like to thank both Barbara and Mark for allowing us to use their fantastic images and we’re delighted to have met you both and that the day went so well. Also many thanks to Nick Tucker, the photographer, for producing such images and again for allowing us to share them. Check out his site for more pictures and if anyone’s looking for a wedding photographer he definitely gets our recommendation!
The wedding (and a very complimentary feature – thanks!) was also featured on cult wedding blog Rock n Roll Bride which also provides plenty more images to delve through!
