Laura and Alex had a summery relaxed Islington ‘London’ focussed wedding with a Town Hall ceremony and restaurant reception, with the bride in a stunning peachy pink wedding dress!
Couple Laura and Alex had a perfectly relaxed summer’s day wedding in Islington for their day in August. Starting at Islington Town Hall for their ceremony they then took some time out for some portraits in the nearby streets with their photographer Gen. We adore bride Laura’s peachy pink Needle & Thread wedding dress, and think Alex makes an equally dashing groom in his bespoke Alexandra Wood suit!
We love the capture of all the little looks during the ceremony and those of the couple with their little girl as a family, so cute! The little touches during the day from the tube themed tables to the mixed CD’s were lovely ways to personalise their restaurant reception, and I just have to mention that wedding cheese cake…it looks amazing and I imagine the guests enjoyed tucking into that!
Feminine, modern and utterly unique, Hermione de Paula designs hand-crafted and embroidered floral inspired couture bridal heirloom wedding dresses bespoke to each bride.
I’ve been following and admiring London based couture bridal designer Hermione de Paula for a little while now (their Instagram is insanely beautiful) and quite frankly the designs blow me away. Each exquisite dress is a unique piece of artwork carefully designed with the client. An intricate and detailed process and in fact a journey of discovery as it’s created. The designs reflect true craft, and are feminine, playful yet sultry and understated. Utterly modern, and utterly unique.
As a graduate of Central Saint Martins, with experience working for designers such as Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior Couture and Giles the brand has organically expanded since launching back in 2008 with exotic prints and lifestyle ranges into couture bridal.
Leonie & Nick had a colourful Spring wedding in Islington, co-ordinated by London Bride with blooms bursting from terrariums, an a capella choir, coloured wedding dress and lots of eclectic decor.
I’m so excited to share today’s wedding of Leonie and Nick. This was a gorgeous Spring wedding from earlier this year that was co-ordinated by London Bride! So, you know the drill – any weddings by us tend to be a little long in length as it’s so hard to edit them down! I’ll be honest also in that Leonie and Nick are ridiculously photogenic that there were just too many beautiful photos from Lovestruck Photography to choose from, so excuse the rather lengthy post!
Leonie and Nick added so much fun, character and colour to their relaxed Islington pub wedding, with lots of personal details; many combined with efforts of some very talented and kind friends, it just shows you can transform any space and I really loved seeing so much colour! I worked with them in the lead up to the day and it was lovely to style and set up all their personal decorative touches along with the incredible flowers from That Flower Shop, and THOSE amazing gold terrariums that the bride sourced.
Do have a read below for Leonie (and Nick’s!) wonderful write up of the day, they also sum it up with some wonderful advice which I wanted to post here too:
I felt a lot more of a ‘bride’ on the day than I was expecting. Turns out it’s not just the white dress that does it! Try and get round and talk to everyone but do go off and have a moment by yourself (as well as with your new husband!) when you want to.
Spend time with the family members that you don’t often see. Make sure you eat the nice food, drink the fancy champagne and dance – it’s more important to have a good time in your dress than keep it pristine.
