Informal Pretty Notting Hill Wedding

WEDDINGS, Informal

Fredrika and Tom were married in May with a casual wedding that they described at informal and glamorous like the wedding in the film The Godfather! They had a pretty family oriented Notting Hill wedding and I do love the transition of the day from the getting ready amongst the kids at home, to the couple driving themselves to the ceremony, the beautiful moments as husband and wife in the leafy surroundings of West London and then the party with friends and family celebrating with the couple into the small hours. I’m also seeing a bit of a trend emerging with brides in leather jackets, and I rather like it…

We have been together for yonks and have two small children. When Tom proposed a couple of years ago we both agreed that the most essential part of what a wedding means to us is to bring people together.”

“As Fredrika grew up in Sweden so many of the guests came from there and stayed in London for the weekend. We both wanted it to feel glamorous yet informal like the wedding in The Godfather movie! The organisation was done by us and we were quite relaxed about it as most of our time is taken up with the children. We had a kids table which was fun and got everyone to join in the Hokey Cokey which was hilarious. The cake was only ordered a week before! However, it was beautifully decorated by the florists, Achillea. Tom did an amazing slideshow featuring images of our family and pretty much everyone we know and he got some mates to DJ. The record decks were hired from Rigs and Gigs. Fredrika made bunting and small doilies for the centre of each table, which gave the whole room a warm and home-made feel. We illustrated the invitations ourselves with the owl and the pussycat, a poem which was read aloud after the speeches by Michael Horovitz, a poet and local celebrity.”
