Being a petite lady myself, I loved seeing bride Bantika’s style, with her short but oh so sweet Oscar de la Renta dress. Her and George had a ceremony and reception at the pretty Cambridge Cottage in Kew Gardens, which provided the perfect backdrop for their couple portraits, who knew London could look so… tropical?

Bantika and George chose Cambridge Cottage at Kew Gardens as their venue and location for ceremony for a special reason as it was where they went on a date when they first met.

The day was intimate, yet elegant and relaxed, from the drinks on the lawns, the laid back reception in the ‘lounge’ style decorated room filled with fragrance from Diptyque candles with music from students at The Royal Music Academy. The guests helped themselves to an array of food by Blue Strawberry with the delicious dessert cake topped with fresh strawberries by Laura at the Dessert Deli. They also chose a signature cocktail each which the guests enjoyed!

Bantika had her friend Josh Wood (of Josh Wood Atelier) walk her down the aisle and her best friend Anthony Culver kindly decorated the venue with twinkling candles and created the fresh floral displays. Whilst the couple had their portrait photographs with their wonderful photographer Natalie at Natalie J Weddings the guests enjoyed a tour on the Kew Explorer to take in their surroundings on a perfect day.

London Bride Wedding Planning 2014 Round Up

Posted by & filed under London Weddings, My Work.

I know a round-up of the year is highly unimaginative at this time, but along with writing the blog it’s been such a busy but wonderful year for the planning side of London Bride that I thought it may be nice to share some of this with you. Somehow the previous four years have seemingly just rolled into each other and it’s rare I get a chance to reconvene and look back at them, however I’ve been lucky enough to have a quieter December so I’ve been able to do just that this year!

2014 has seen me plan and style weddings all over the UK; from castles to rooftops, waterside to warehouses and town halls to derelict churches. Every couple I work with are so different, each with their own style, and own hopes for their day – and I have to be thankful for a job that no two days or briefs are ever the same! Congratulations to all my 2014 couples I’ve worked with, I know seeing in the New Year as husband and wife for the first time will be very special to you and here’s to a happy healthy 2015 and thank you for letting me be a part of your day.
