Caesara + James – 06 St Chad’s Place Wedding + Gold Wedding Dress

Sometimes you get submitted a wedding and you’re like, is this a styled shoot or an actual wedding because the bride is that stunning. Well, this is one of them! James and Caesara were married in July last year, and they had a 06 St Chad’s Place wedding, which was basically a laid back party, “We both knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We wanted it to be like a massive birthday party!”.

Before we delve into the beautiful images by photographer Kat Hill, I have to mention THE dress. A beautiful bespoke gold wedding dress by Charlotte at Wilden Bride it’s just so unique and the gold shimmer with lace and stylish low back really do simply shine on Caesara. Oh and then there are the blue and gold shoes…

Caesara commissioned a gold embroidered bespoke wedding dress from the talented Charlotte at Wilden Bride as she wanted to incorporate her Pakistani heritage. I just adore the shimmery gold style of the dress that is incredibly flattering against her skin tone and is just so feminine.

From Charlotte at Wilden Bride, “The dress has a gold silk slip with a delicate lace edging, and gold tulle backless over-dress with long sleeves. The tulle was an amazing find, which has a metallic gold thread embroidered all over. I sourced three different designs of gold lace, each with a different design and texture of metallic threads, chording, beads and pearls, from which each lace motif was carefully cut out, and appliqued to the tulle-over-dress to compliment Caesara’s stunning figure. I made a statement belt using a gold chain-mail style mesh, and embroidered cut-outs from sequined Saree’s, Gold sequined Lace, Swarovski Cosmic crystals in silver and gold and pieces of traditional Pakistani mirror-embroidery, which had been cut from a contemporary saree design and coated in a gold foil, which gave the original traditional embroidery a metallic finish, but left the mirror exposed.”

The bride got ready with her three sisters who were her bridesmaids, which were all given the choice to pick their own dresses, and wore a selection from Coast, Very and Tiffany Rose.

With the dress being quite a statement in itself, she didn’t have many accessories and simply wore her Grandmother’s ring on the day along with some fresh flowers in her hair that matched her bouquet. And of course those beautiful eye-catching blue and gold shoes!

The ceremony was held at Camden Town Hall, and the bride made her entrance to ‘Stand by Me’ sung by the Maria Fidelis School Choir which I’m sure gave all the guests goose bumps! It was a memorable moment for them both as they met and took a moment to listen to the Gospel Choir hand in hand who are in fact the Bride’s students so it must have been so magical.

After the ceremony, the couple chose to walk to their reception venue, and in fact as they did, despite the rain drops they got lots of congratulations from passers by! The reception venue of 06 St Chad’s Place was the perfect choice for their wedding as the couple live so close to it and regularly had drinks there. Caesara added her creative touch by making some hand-made hanging decorations, as well as arranging all the flowers and her own bouquet with flowers ordered online.

Caesara’s very talented mum got busy in the kitchen and baked everything for the cake buffet that guests were allowed to indulge in after dinner. They also had traditional Asian confectionary such as Samosas from Ambala and both Mum’s were involved in preparing the food for the evening.

They also invested in a instant camera to encourage guests to write their messages and words of wisdom in their guest book which went down really well and of course they get to keep the camera afterwards!

“Kat Hill had already taken pictures at the venue and it was her pictures I saw when I was googling Chad’s place so I thought ‘She’s great! I have to book her!’ and luckily she was available.

The relaxed feel was also facilitated by the music which was the second most important thing. Music makes the party! and then a great DJ who listened to all our choices! We really enjoyed ourselves and would do it all again! (with the same person, of course!).”

Such a gorgeous day and couple, who look incredibly relaxed and happy with all their friends and family with them to celebrate. Congratulations and thanks also to the super Kat Hill for letting me share her work and those gorgeous portraits of the couple!
