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!
Jen and Tom had a pretty summer Stoke Newington wedding in July last year at Clissold House and The Londesborough pub. Their day was brimming with joy and beautiful touches from the ‘freshly picked from the meadow’ flowers, to the bridesmaids in shades of blue, and of course their dog making an appearance into the day! Jen wore a beautifully simple and elegant dress from Charlie Brear.
As part of my visit, Brides The Show catwalk is a definite personal highlight. I mean who wouldn’t like to sit FROW and look at pretty dresses swirling by? On the Friday night preview, there was an exclusive Jenny Packham catwalk showcasing her 2016 collection that was shown in NYC, based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the characters in the play.
During the weekend there was of course the ‘Secret Garden’ themed catwalk styled to perfection by Bryony Toogood Fashion Director at Brides Magazine, which was so exciting to see. A plethora of bridal designers showcasing designs from their latest collections or exclusives. It was so lovely to see the buzz of brides to be falling in love with the potential ‘one’ in front of their eyes.
Urban and atmospheric wedding with winter brights for couple Jess and Nick’s February celebrations at the elegant yet distressed The Asylum and MC Motors.
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.
A cool, contemporary Sunbeam Studios wedding for Katy and Simon. Ombre pink hair, a Charlie Brear dress and a Sunday Roast feast for this unique and meaningful Jew-Ish celebration with neon pink details.
I’m so pleased to finally be featuring this fabulous modern wedding today that I planned last summer. Katy and Simon were a cool, contemporary couple and I love that this wedding reflects that in every detail. From the meaningful ‘Jew-Ish’ ceremony, to Katy’s amazing ombre pink hair to the roast dinner feast (despite it being August) and the first dance in trainers it was so great working with them as they put their personalities into every element of the day for their Sunbeam Studios wedding.
