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 year. We were quite limited on time to pull things together, however we collaborated with a team of amazing suppliers to create a beautiful summery day in the city to create an urban oasis full of foliage and florals, pretty paper details, and delicious food and drink for all the guests to enjoy. The day was captured perfectly by the amazing Chloe at Caught The Light (who really did make it look like the mediterranean!) and was also previously featured on Style Me Pretty.

Crisa’s friend and bridesmaid Emily is a designer with her own stationery company, Ever After Press. Emily created the beautiful stationery suite for the wedding and all the pretty detailed paper elements throughout which set the tone for the day with a fresh, watercolour, mediterranean feel.
We incorporated other subtle references to the bride, Crisa’s mediterranean heritage as well as their love of the outdoors by creating an urban oasis. The venue was styled with lots of greenery and floral touches to bring the summer to life inside by Amy at Bo Boutique with olive trees, hanging branches and draped foliage which hung over rustic wooden doors behind the top table. The theme continued through the watercolour paper elements designed by Emily, and their unexpected ‘something blue’ ombre wedding cake which took guests by surprise with it’s colourful sponge!
Delicious canapés and cuisine were provided by Social Pantry along with an Iberian ham carving station for guests to enjoy whilst sipping on refreshing Grapefruit and Cucumber cocktails or homemade lemonade. The couple made an amazing entry to the reception by being driven in their vintage car into the venue to a warm welcome from their guests as they arrived to the jazz sounds of the Swinging Little Big Band.
After the sit-down feasting style meal and heartfelt speeches, the evening began with the couples favourite signature cocktails served from a vintage bar cart with personalised napkins and cocktail stirrers and guests were treated to a sweet treat with seasonal macarons in ‘Great British Summer flavours such as Pimms and Apple and Elderflower. As the wedding was during the World Cup season, a table-football table was set up and proved to be a great place for the boys to have some fun, then the Wedding Smashers DJs kicked off the evening as the couple took to the dance floor with their choreographed first dance routine to the cheers of their guests.
The night didn’t end there as the couple and their friends decided to carry on the after party with a visit to to their local karaoke bar!
Congratulations again to Crisa and Gareth and thank you for sharing your day, and thanks also to photographer Chloe for sharing her beautiful work!
