Gemma + Matt – Savile Club Chic London Wedding

SavileClubWedding ElizaClairePhotography 0037 Gemma + Matt   Savile Club Chic London Wedding

Of course I may be biased but I do love a city chic wedding, and you can’t beat Mayfair’s The Savile Club for decadence and style. This stylish couple had a beautiful city Church ceremony at St James in Clerkenwell, followed by a fine feast at the private member’s club and then it was the guests turn to play DJ and hit the decks as well as the dancefloor – with a  ‘Stick It On’ party, all captured by lovely photographer Eliza Claire. Now that sounds like my kind of fun…

In keeping with the glamorous city style, Gemma chose a simple chic but feminine ‘Swan’ Delphine Manivet dress which I love the bow back detail of “I wanted to create a look that would be modern and stylish in keeping with a London Wedding. Also the reception venue was so ornate I felt the dress needed to be quite simple in silhouette”. Those amazing killer studded heels are Valentino and the bridesmaids wore navy lace dresses from Whistles and shoes designed by one of the bridesmaids, Carla…. ummm wow!

Gemma and Matthew decided on a decadent and glamorous city wedding “We wanted to get married in London because we have lived here for the last 16 years and it is such an amazing city. We chose the Savile Club because its such a beautiful and decadent venue and relatively unknown. The Ballroom is very French in feel, it looks like a mini Palace of Versailles with ornate mirrored doors and sparkling chandeliers, but the bar and dancing area has a traditional oak paneled Gentleman’s club feel so you can create a different mood for each part of the day.”

I love the simple hand-scripted style black and white designs of the stationery; from the orders of service to the table plan above which were all designed by the clever and creative groom.

Meadowy flowers by the fantastic Scarlet and Violet added some beautiful colour to the bouquets and a relaxed feel to the venue on the tables “As the reception venue is very ornate and grand we wanted the decorations to have a relaxed fun feel. We both love balloons so had huge bunches dotted around the venue and introduced a personal touch through the ‘Matty ‘hearts’ Gemma’ flags from Etsy.”

The guests were treated to a feast on the eyes as well as the stomach! “We are both big foodies and also very visual people so wanted the food to look beautiful as well as tasting delicious. My favourite dish was the starter which was a beetroot risotto with edible flowers.”   They also chose a beautiful ‘naked’ style Victoria sponge cake with fresh fruit by Maisie Fantaisaie.

I love Gemma and Matt’s first dance song choice (a favourite of mine from the film ‘My Girl’) – ‘I only have eyes for you’ by The Flamingos. In the evening the party got started as the bride and groom took to the decks themselves! “We also had a ‘Stick it on’ for the evening which turned all the guests into D.J’s . It was so much fun and got everyone involved. It was brilliant to see our parents behind the decks! The dance floor was packed all night and it was amazing to hear the tunes our guests had selected.”

I did “attempt” to learn to DJ when at uni so I would have loved this concept of choosing your own songs to play in the evening. I love the below shots of the bride and groom spinning some ‘chooooons’…

Special Moment…

“Seeing everyone we love brought together. Driving around London in a Morris Minor with total strangers smiling and waving at us and my Dad’s speech – it was so lovely!”

Congratulations Matt and Gemma on a super chic day and best wishes on becoming Mr and Mrs! Thanks to the lovely Eliza Claire for letting me share this gorgeous day.
