Amy and Matt had a colourful modern Kings Cross wedding with a ceremony in St Pancras station followed by an informal and urban reception.
This week feels like all my wedding enquiries seem to be for September. It’s no wonder it’s a popular month, the summer is over, life is back to normal, kids are at school and well, the weather seems to be mostly quite lovely.
This wedding took place in September last year and certainly wasn’t short of blue skies. The addition of the colourful flowers, those turquoise blue shoes worked with the couple who’s beaming smiles are almost as bright as both.
When I first moved to London I’d never have imagined Kings Cross to be a destination for a wedding, but how wrong I was. I just love St Pancras and this whole area and couldn’t imagine a place with more of a buzz to say I do.
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.
Today’s wedding has to be a perfect example of a London wedding! Bride and groom Anna and Dil were married with a Catholic ceremony, followed by a walk down the Southbank with their guests, bubbles and dancing aboard a boat down the Thames, then a hearty British feast followed by late night fun. Bride Anna also chose the most beautifully sparkling Jenny Packham ‘Gemma” tea length gown (one of my favourites!) and bridesmaids in fun Maids To Measure floral print dresses and cheery bright florals from Wild About set the decor off perfectly.
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.
It’s great to see how couple Lisa and Will built a wedding that reflected them, especially in the venue they chose which allowed them to have a colourful and playful theme with a hint of nostalgia in her gorgeous fifties style Candy Anthony dress. Lots of colour for their late summer day with lots of ‘sweet’ details, quite literally with an amazing dessert table along with thoughtful favours of books for their guests and lots of entertaining speeches!
