Having tied the knot in Mexico, Lauren and David had a Mad Hatters wedding reception in the city at The Happenstance with the bride in her own something blue fifties dress.
It’s not uncommon now for couples to choose a two-part wedding celebration. Many want to jet off somewhere exotic for some sunshine with close friends and family or perhaps even an intimate elopement, but with this comes a limit to your guest list which is never easy an easy decision to make.
Therefore a double celebration with a small destination wedding and a BIG party back home is a great compromise! That’s what today’s couple Lauren and David did, who celebrated in the city at The Happenstance with not only St Paul’s as a stunning backdrop but beautiful blue skies that matched Lauren’s fun choice of dress for their spring ‘mad hatters tea party’ wedding reception.
Whether it’s a solitaire or opaque diamond, hammered or floral engraved, these beautiful intricate and hand-crafted wedding and engagement rings from Rust will have anyone saying I Do!
When it comes to jewellery, although of course it’s a very personal choice for engagement and wedding rings, it’s something that I get asked about quite often, for those looking for something unique, with a little bit of personality to them but still timeless. Whether you are carefully choosing your ring together or you are waiting patiently and wanting to send some inspiration their way (or perhaps even you’ve stumbled across this as part of the big proposal, if so hello!) I’m sure the work of Rust jewellery will be of interest.
I’ve followed Rust and their designs for some time now, back to when they were based in London, in fact I even visited them to enquire about my own wedding ring, but we *still* haven’t got there yet! Whilst I’ve featured them before on the blog it was quite a while ago so I thought it would be a good opportunity to showcase their enchanting jewellery once again and a good excuse for me to peruse their website and be inspired for when the time comes for me too!!
Kale and quinoa lovers look away now. Introducing you to the wonderland emporium of Anges de Sucre with their kitsch Kensington shop and their incredible showstopping sweet-on-sweet cakes and treats. We’re talking doughnuts, marshmallows, macarons, and oreo’s… and that’s just the toppings.
I’ve been dribbling over the delightfully decadent instagram account of Anges de Sucre for quite some time, though will admit had a ‘unfollow’ moment in January when the diet was in full swing but thankfully I came to my senses and continued to indulge with their insta-sugar fix from them.
Anges de Sucre (translates from French as ‘Sugar Angels’) is possibly the closest you’ll come to Willy Wonka land in London. Run by owner Reshmi Bennett, they are an award-winning sweet shop wonderland in Kensington serving all kinds of decadent treats from macaroons, marshmallows, cupcakes, cakes and even their own invention – the ‘Muffle’ (a marshmallow-truffle hybrid!).
Danielle & Matt had the epitome of a laid back London wedding. With a ceremony at Stoke Newington Town Hall and a reception held at quirky photographic venue, The Roost with a sprinkling of floral crowns and a pretty lace dress this was a gorgeous day captured honestly by Lisa Jane Photography and Mark Brown Films.
