Nova and David had a fun summery 60s style riverside wedding day at The Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe – the very place where they met.

I had been waiting a little while to feature this wedding as I was holding off for ‘summer’ to hit us as I love the summery feel to the day, but alas, no such hope for us here in the UK so I guess I’ll just have to share it regardless!

Nova and David had a lovely personal wedding celebration at the place where they fell in love, Shakespeare’s Globe! Puts a whole new meaning to Shakespeare In Love.

As an event manager herself, Nova planned a beautiful day that had subtle and thoughtful nods to her and David’s style as a couple, from the rings to the cake and so lovely to see their adorable little girl Jean be a part of the celebrations too. I love the summery vibe of the flowers by Palais Flowers, Nova in her short 60s style dress and the bridesmaids look super cool in their matching floral print skirts. I love the last shot of Nova and David just sitting chilling on the Millennium Bridge. Is there a better way to end your wedding? I’m not sure…

Oh and look out for the mischievous flower girls… they looked like they had the best day, ever!

Cosy Seasonal Brixton East Warehouse Wedding

WEDDINGS, Informal, Urban

Intimate Winter Brixton East Wedding London by Babb Photo

I’m sure you’ll be struck immediately by the warm, cosy and low-lit images from Laura at Babb Photo for this lovely November wedding. Colette and Ray’s wedding looks so inviting, from the London Townhouse ceremony location in Peckham to the urban London warehouse, Brixton East brimming with twinkling fairy lights, shimmering candles and a scattering of olive leaf branches.

A fabulous idea to serve up pizza from a wood-fire oven for their guests. I mean who wouldn’t want to dig into that and a glass of red wine? Dessert was suitably decadent with a tower of doughnuts and a rainbow of flavoured meringues that the guests were able to help themselves to along with some mulled wine.

They began the day with a simple and intimate ceremony at Southwark Registry office in Peckham with just their close friends and family joining them. They then headed to the former furniture warehouse, Brixton East where they had an informal party with good wine, good food in beautiful cosy surroundings.

Alice in wonderland islington metal works wedding

WEDDINGS, Informal

Alice in Wonderland Islington Metalworks Wedding by Babb Photo

It’s always fun to see how couples put their spin on their wedding day, and the lovely Roger and Sarah were inspired to put a little bit of Alice in Wonderland magic to their Islington Metalworks wedding! “Although we didn’t initially want a theme we saw photos of an Alice in Wonderland wedding on the Metalworks website and thought that it looked great and we loved the idea of it being a wedding for people who are a little bit twisted!” This winter wedding is full of creative details that work so well in the venue and must have been a great talking point for all the guests, especially all those amazing cakes!

“We went with Laura at Babb Photo for the photography because she represented very good value for money is highly professional and has a cool style of photography which is unobtrusive but also ‘real’ and not over polished”. The atmosphere we were aiming for was warm and inclusive, hence we had big rows of tables rather than small circular tables. We also had lots of different styles of music throughout the day which included a jazz band, jukebox hour where the guests selected their choices ahead of the day as well as a Moroccon band which kicked off the evening then a DJ into the late hours! 

The bride Sarah chose an elegant figure flattering lace dress with ribbon detail and an unusual brooch bouquet by Love Bouquet which I think made the perfect accessory for a winter’s wedding with all the sparkle. The bride went for a dress that she knew her groom would love to see her in, “The dress was meant to be something elegant and strapless as that was one of Roger’s stipulations!” The Islington Metal Works is an unusual and quirky venue and was the perfect backdrop for this creatively themed wedding and also great as it’s close in location to the Town Hall where they held their ceremony. “We chose the Metal Works as we initially went to look at hotels and just felt that they lacked spirit so started looking on the internet for warehouse weddings. Islington was a great choice because it is such a lovely area and guests who were staying the night before had plenty of choice on where to go out.

Sarah was lucky enough to have some very talented friends involved in her wedding, and she has some great advice “Allow your friends to show how talented they are by helping out. It makes it more personable, but give them space to be creative as putting too much pressure on them only puts people off.” Along with tables of sweets, there were a selection of amazing cakes which featured Cheshire Cats and playing cards which were made by a friend and her very talented bridesmaid created a special Alice in Wonderland wedding cake!

They also they offered guests mezze food to add to the informal atmosphere which was a great hit with the guests and the theme was all brought together by cute little ‘key’ escort cards for guests to find their seats. They also decided to do something a little bit different for their first dance and hired a Moroccan band to perform and the bride says it was a highlight of the day, “The most special part of the day had to be our first dance as we marched in with the Moroccan band!”

Congratulations to Sarah and Roger on a fabulously quirky wedding which looked such great fun and to Laura at Babb Photo  for sharing her wonderful work.
