Leila and Perry chose a sweet Chelsea ceremony followed by a walk along the picturesque Albert Bridge before joining their guests for a colourful urban reception in Kings Cross. This couple injected colour and style with her floral crown and his check suit and the cheery green bridesmaids!

Leila and Perry’s wedding has been a lovely wedding to write up due to all the gorgeous colour injected, it just adds so much fun and cheer to a wedding! They even asked the guests to wear bright colours which is such a great idea.

Leila and Perry were married in September 2015, and chose to hold an intimate ceremony at The Chelsea Registry Office given they had first met on the Kings Road and also that Leila’s parents in fact married there 37 years ago which is just lovely and so meaningful.

Leila’s bridal style is modern and I love her bright floral crown which works nicely with the colourful bridesmaids dresses too. Groom Perry is seriously upping the style stakes too, what a fabulous check suit! They injected their styles and personalities into the day really well, from an epic selection of Brownie’s from Leila’s own bakery to a Lebanese belly dancer and hip hop DJ!

Although 06 St Chad’s is no longer taking wedding bookings (shame!) I do love how Jam Jar Flowers dressed the beams with hops, a great idea and way of adding decor to a tall space.

It’s actually quite a struggle for me to put together the features on weddings that I’ve planned and been a part of, and for that reason you’ll notice they generally have a lot more images so I can only apologise in advance if this is a lengthy one!

I co-ordinated this urban brights winter wedding earlier in February and it’s taken me quite some time just to edit the images down. Partly because Lee at Robbins Phogoraphic has captured the day in such a way I almost feel like I can’t miss anything out, partly because Jess and Nick are a seriously good looking couple and partly because the day was beautiful – in style and in atmosphere. I’m sure you’ll see my struggle!

Jess and Nick managed to combine so much into their day. It was bright but stylish, informal yet romantic whilst being elegant and urban.  Not many couples choose February as a month to marry in, but with colourful wild flowers by Palais Flowers, beautifully worn venues, a cosy atmosphere and all your loved ones together it really could have been any day of the year.

Colourful Origami Winter Peasant Pub Wedding Clerkenwell

WEDDINGS, Informal

Colourful Origami Clerkenwell Pub Wedding By Laura Babb

Hands up who’s ever tried to make an origami crane? I have, not that successfully I may add and after reading the tutorial quite a number of times indeed. Well, today’s bride (and groom!) must by now be pretty damn good at them, as Laura and Paul decided to make 1,000 origami cranes after reading about the tradition (it’s thought to be very good luck), which made for a rather amazing feature for their December pub wedding in Clerkenwell.

The beautiful rainbow of colours hanging from the ceiling brighten up the pub interior teamed with stunning colourful jewel toned flowers from That Flower Shop and some really fun geometric stationery meant this winter wedding was a bright and cheerful affair all round, captured by Laura Babb.

From the bride, Laura: “We wanted a day that reflected us as a couple – relaxed and fun, with an emphasis on family, friends, good food and flowing drinks. We did most of our dating in London so it was really special to hold the wedding in the City we both love.

Early on we agreed that a Pub wedding was definitely for us and as soon as we met the team at The Peasant we were able to relax as we knew that they would take care of everything for us (and Paul and his friends love a good Ale!).

We had read about the 1,000 origami crane tradition and thought that a rainbow of colours would work really well at the venue. This went on to inspire some of the other touches like my blue and white Ted Baker shoes and also the flowers (that were perfect and everything we could have hoped for!).

One of our best buys was our funky geometric stationary which we found by chance on Etsy, we kept this theme running from our invites through to the table plans, menus and place cards and they really added a lovely touch. I was really really nervous about finding the perfect dress and for many months scoured the high street for a dress as I couldn’t face visiting a bridal shop, eventually my sisters set me up with an appointment at Confetti Bridal in Wokingham (near my hometown of Reading). The second dress I picked up was definitely ‘the one’ and immediately the pressure was off! Laura also wore a sweet handmade knit made by her mum to keep her warm.

Finally the photography was definitely close to the top of our list of priorities – you only do it once and we wanted to find someone who could capture the vibe of our whole day. We had seen many of Laura Babb’s photos as she does a lot of London weddings and we attended a wedding she had shot earlier in the year. It was an obvious choice and to say that we are over the moon with her work is an understatement – on 1st viewing (and 2nd and 3rd) there was not a dry eye in the house!

Thank you to Laura and Paul for sharing their gorgeous cheery day with us, proving you can go bright in winter!
