WEDDINGS, Elegant

Chiswick House Wedding London by David Jenkins

You may be mistaken to think this wedding isn’t in London given it’s beautiful leafy and spacious surroundings which are brought to life in the radiant sunshine, yet this is indeed a city wedding. Helena and Christian had an incredibly romantic and stylish late afternoon wedding at Chiswick House and Gardens in West London which was captured in that magical light by their photographer, David Jenkins.

“Having moved around the world quite a bit for work, we both agreed getting married at Chiswick House near where Christian grew up was the perfect choice. While Chiswick House and Gardens are quite formal, we wanted to maintain a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Our inspiration for the day was a black-tie garden party. Our colour scheme was based on romantic greys and deep pinks, perfect for a late afternoon wedding.”

Helena walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon as it was a song she had learned to play on the piano as a little girl and has always loved the piece of music. They also asked their close friends and family to read the couples favourites poems, such as E.E. Cummings ‘I Carry your heart’ and Robert Frost’s ‘Master Speed’.  The ceremony was very poignant for them and Helena describes the most memorable part of the day “Saying our vows, it was the most moving moment”.

Words from Helena for those planning a wedding; “Enjoy it! It truly is the most beautiful day of your life and you are surrounded by people who love you.”

Picturesque London Bridal Shoot at Chiswick Gardens

INSPIRATION

London Wedding Chiswick House Gardens

I stumbled across this beautiful shoot by photographer Miguel Varona and just wanted to share the beauty of it all with you. Although based in Spain, Miguel wanted to come to the UK to do a bridal shoot with the romance of a forest, dappling light, historical buildings, little bridges and winding rivers. I forget sometimes how lucky us English inhabitants are to have these elements in spades.

Although based in Spain, Miguel travelled to London [yes, this is London people!] and the shoot took place at the picturesque West London setting of Chiswick House Gardens [ps you can get married there]. Miguel is a fine art film photographer and I just love the ethereal elegance to these images and the stunning style of a flame haired beauty.

The shoot was in collaboration with the beautiful wedding dress designer Otaduy, “Our collections are designed to celebrate a special date or any date that deserves to be celebrated. We take inspiration from moments like these -snapshots that remain- and also from those little things we enjoy doing such as taking an espresso in a glass cup, wearing red lipstick to go to the cinema or riding a bike while listening to music on a mild spring night.”
