You may be mistaken to think this wedding isn’t in London given it’s beautiful leafy and spacious surroundings which are brought to life in the radiant sunshine, yet this is indeed a city wedding. Helena and Christian had an incredibly romantic and stylish late afternoon wedding at Chiswick House and Gardens in West London which was captured in that magical light by their photographer, David Jenkins.

“Having moved around the world quite a bit for work, we both agreed getting married at Chiswick House near where Christian grew up was the perfect choice. While Chiswick House and Gardens are quite formal, we wanted to maintain a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Our inspiration for the day was a black-tie garden party. Our colour scheme was based on romantic greys and deep pinks, perfect for a late afternoon wedding.”

Helena walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon as it was a song she had learned to play on the piano as a little girl and has always loved the piece of music. They also asked their close friends and family to read the couples favourites poems, such as E.E. Cummings ‘I Carry your heart’ and Robert Frost’s ‘Master Speed’.  The ceremony was very poignant for them and Helena describes the most memorable part of the day “Saying our vows, it was the most moving moment”.

Words from Helena for those planning a wedding; “Enjoy it! It truly is the most beautiful day of your life and you are surrounded by people who love you.”

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.
