There’s no denying that we’ve all gone a bit green fingered lately and bringing more of the outdoors into our lives. As Pantone announced their 2017 colour of the year is ‘Greenery’ it is definitely carrying through to weddings, and this beautiful Autumn wedding beautifully styled with green details showcases why.
Greenery works perfectly for weddings as Pantone explains, “Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.”
The greens in all their shades are so cohesive and complimentary to the more wood-styled venues, and the couple’s style, and Melissa’s bouquet by The Flower Bird is one of my favourites I think in all it’s Autumn, green, wild foliage glory, just stunning!
It’s so great to see the fabulous Isere skirt from Charlie Brear on a bride and it looks like it was made for bride Melissa and this wedding day. Can you imagine how fun it is shimmying around in that!? Once again, fabulous groom inspiration in this real wedding from a very well dressed groom Ben who sourced all his outfit in London – a true London Groom!
I really like how this wedding shows how you can style your day simply through colours, tones, fashion and details. The venues are both quite atmospheric with their wood decorated spaces which work so well with the natural greens chosen by the couple. I often meet couples who are worried their venue is too dark or too detailed, but this shows you can really inject a lot of style from details from the flowers, shoes, suits, cake and stationery and green is perfect for that.
I have to warn you this is a long image post, because I found it so difficult to edit (captured so well by Miss Gen) as it is all just so beautiful and let’s face it, a ridiculously gorgeous and stylish couple radiating joy. I hope whether you’re a new reader or a long-term London Bride fan, you enjoy this wedding!
A back to front wedding for Laura and Tom who were married the day before Valentine’s day this year. They celebrated with a family dinner before the ceremony and a big party after in St Pancras, Kings Cross and of course the bride wore two outfits!
Laura and Tom tied the knot on 13th February this year (the day before Valentine’s day!) with the wedding taking place at Kings Cross, with a ceremony in St Pancras station and a reception at 06 St Chad’s however it wasn’t a typical wedding day. This couple decided to have it back to front, so had a lovely family lunch before the ceremony and then a party reception for everyone afterwards! The bride wore two outfits for the different parts of the day, and I love her different styles from city to chic.
Whilst it may not be the most practical venue for a ceremony (read more below!) it’s certainly unusual and an amazing iconic place to say that you got married! I love the photo above, looks like a 1940s wedding in the modern day!
Do have a read below of Laura’s wedding planning journey, and if you’re reading this as a ‘just engaged’ bride to be, then definitely take her advice below and bask in all the celebratory glory!
A bride in Rosa Clara, blush pink details for a playful Peckham wedding.
Magda and Lee had a summery pretty, Peckham wedding in August this year with their ceremony at The Asylum Chapel and a reception in a nearby pub. Playful details with balloons and tissue paper garlands along with blush pink flowers and an utterly delicious looking ‘naked’ cake made this day fun and relaxed for this Polish bride and her groom!
