An LA bride, a London rooftop, mariachi music, a groom in pink and a theatric ceremony. David and Saskia certainly put the playful and party into their day.
This was a hard wedding to write a title for. Perhaps I best not try to describe it, but let’s just say there’s a rooftop, a ton of paper flowers, faux cherry blossom trees, an actual heart shaped cake(as in from the body), mariachi music, a seriously dapper groom in powder pink and a bride in an old faithful dress.
The couple Saskia (from LA) and David added some serious tongue in cheek to their London wedding, with a playful take turning it into a super cool party.
Sometimes you meet people in the wedding industry who’s work is a breath of fresh air and who’s talent shines through. Having seen in person, the floral artistry work of Vervain at A Most Curious Wedding Fair I was just so drawn to owner India Hurst’s style and also her ethos that I wanted to share this with you on the blog.
Vervain is a flower studio specialising in creating unique floristry; orchestrated chaos. With a background in art and design and horticulture, I think India combines natural beauty with a creative eye to create unique floral styling. Designs are tailored to each couple’s style and are suited to those who appreciate how flowers can enhance their aesthetic and express their personality through the atmosphere of their wedding.
It’s time for a little round-up with another London Bride Loves in London, Lifestyle & Weddings. It’s diamonds, digital magazines, sunshine. summer scents and cheeky nails…
This week I attended the ‘Tie The Knot’ launch at my favourite jewellery emporium, the Alex Monroe boutique which also resides in my new favourite part of town, Bermondsey (more on that below). If you’ve not paid a visit to this little gem, you need to get down there. It’s the cutest shop, full of treasures and trinkets and the visual merchandising is total perfection, it’s very hard walking away from there with no bling. As you can see I couldn’t help but try on a few jewels from their new wedding collection which is available online and also exclusively at Liberty’s. They also offer an amazing bespoke service which I chatted to Alex himself about, so boy’s if you’re listening – you know where to go! Hoping to do a full feature soon so keep your eyes peeled.
Draping foliage and watercolour details for an urban oasis summer in the city wedding for Crisa and Gareth’s, planned and styled by London Bride.
I’m so pleased to share one of my favourite London Bride weddings of last year. I worked with Crisa and Gareth to plan and style their urban summer wedding at MC Motors last July. Despite a fairly limited timescale to pull things together, we collaborated with a team of amazing suppliers for a beautiful summery day in the city for the couple, creating an urban oasis full of foliage and florals, pretty paper details, delicious food and drink as well as unique personal touches throughout. The day was captured perfectly by the amazing Chloe at Caught The Light (who’s stunning film photography really did make it look like the mediterranean!) and was also previously featured on Style Me Pretty.
A beautiful floral themed wedding for Amy and Fred in the pretty setting of Kew Gardens with a Cymbeline dress and a touch of lilac (and lobster!).
Amy and Fred were married this time last year and for their beautiful spring wedding chose the pretty surroundings of Cambridge Cottage at Kew Gardens. With a floral theme and some cute personal touches they made the day their own, and with a little surprise on the way Amy looked the most radiant bride!
