A Rainy Yet Beautiful July Hackney Round Chapel Wedding

WEDDINGS, Elegant, Informal

Tash & Richard had a beautiful yet rainy July Hackney Round Chapel wedding. Boys in bow-ties, two ceremonies, mis-matched bridesmaids, frozen cocktails and a Jewish Hora dance, we loved co-ordinating this wonderful perfectly imperfect London wedding!

Rainy July Hackney Round Chapel Wedding London by Emma Case Photography

It’s been a little over a year since the lovely Tash and Richard’s wedding that we co-ordinated and I’m so pleased to finally be sharing their fabulous day!

It was July and whilst you’d think that would mean beautiful hazy sunshine, it in fact meant torrential downpours, all day long. And I mean all day. It’s one of the wettest weddings I’ve co-ordinated, ironic really given it was a summer wedding but it absolutely didn’t dampen the day one bit, and I remember how much it actually made everyone laugh and smile because of the ridiculous-ness of it all! I love the image above by their photographer, Emma Case as it just shows, you can’t plan for the weather so you just have to smile and roll with it, just like these two and their guests did.

It really was a beautiful day despite the rain, with pretty mis-matching maids in creams and blush, boys in bow-ties, flowers made by the Groom’s mother, treats of cheese and ice-cream, frozen slush cocktails and two ceremonies, plus a rather epic Hora (Jewish circle dance) that I’ve witnessed at a wedding (not going to lie, the planner in me was concerned about anyone getting hurt but pleased to report everyone was of course fine!).

I’ve loved featuring the write-up from the bride Tash, I know many of you enjoy simply browsing through the images, but if you can, do take a few moments to read their lovely story of their day – as the bride Tash had herself said, “I found it really comforting and touching to read entries about weddings that carried a sense of reality and not everything being totally perfect. There can be so much pressure to get everything ‘right’ and for all the decisions to come naturally and hassle-free.” A wise and wonderful bride… over to you Tash and Richard.

Top 5 Unique & Boutique Flower Delivery in London

INSPIRATION, Florals, Lifestyle

Bloom & Wild Flower Delivery by Letterbox

It seems us lot just can’t get enough of fresh flowers, not just for special occasions but to spread a bit of joy at home or to friends. I used to be utterly spoilt with local florists near my last home but since moving there are none in my area (well, none that offer flowers other than gerberas, rainbow roses and carnations) and I’m feeling a little flower bereft!

However I’ve stumbled upon some lovely services that offer unique and boutique flowery delivery in London (and some throughout UK) that will enable me to get my floral fix straight to my door! I’m very excited to try some of these out, and thought I’d share my top 5 findings! Also if any friends should wish to send me some flowers… here’s a little hint ;)

The designs reflect true craft, and are feminine, playful yet sultry and understated. Utterly modern, and utterly unique.

Islington Town Hall Midweek Low Key Ceremony

WEDDINGS, Informal, Urban

Photography by Eclection Photography

Fashion forward couple Anna and Greg had a very small, intimate wedding in Autumn with their ceremony at Islington Town Hall followed by a private party the next day. 

Low Key Islington Wedding | Eclection Photography

This couple chose to spread their celebrations over three days, with family over from Toronto they had a simple ceremony, followed by a party and then a family brunch. Who says a wedding day has to just be one day!? They kept the planning very low key and simple as they didn’t want a huge fuss, and it’s great to see such a modern minimalist bride, with bride Anna in an Acne dress.
