If you’re a fan of food, florals and boho style, then the Hackney wedding of Khaly and Martin ticks all those boxes and some. A beautiful boho bride, floral bridesmaids, afternoon tea and a dessert table that Mary Berry would be proud of.
I think it goes without saying that Khaly’s bridal style is effortless, boho elegance at it’s finest. The original vintage 70s off the shoulder layered lace gown is relaxed but feminine and with her dark flowing locks, soft metallic eyes and that incredible headpiece by Joanna Reed she looks every inch the perfect boho bride with her dashing groom in blue. Not to mention her girls looking fair maids in their floor length dark floral dresses (from Marks and Spencer’s would you believe, just goes to show keep your mind open!),
The super cool boho chic backdrop of photographic location The Roost in Hackney was not only a local venue for them, but one that complimented this couple’s style perfectly. Ending the night with a DJ dance party in the basement and a pizza van is a pretty good way to see the evening out I say.
Also worth noting to anyone thinking about speeches, and how you imagine they’ll be a few minutes each at the most, as these guys prove, they can go on for over an hour so you might want to keep that in mind! Sounds like they were worth every minute.
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!
A sweet and simple Hackney wedding, planned in just a week it was a low-key but utterly heartfelt day with a beaming bride and groom celebrating in a local cafe with their family and friends and their little boy.
Lizi and Gideon had a lovely personal wedding ceremony in Hackney followed by a cosy Autumn London pub wedding. Lizi chose a beautifully unique original 1940s vintage dress from Elizabeth Avey and along with the berry toned florals created by close family, some twinkling lights, a hint of metallic made this the perfect Autumn London wedding.
A lovely story of fate bringing back childhood sweethearts Soula and Will together for their vintage 1920s inspired Hackney Town Hall and Tab Centre London wedding.
The story behind today’s lovely couple Will and Soula is certainly one to melt the hearts! They were childhood sweethearts in London when they were just 12 years old, though 20 years passed as she moved away but then then they just so happened to be brought back together when they discovered they were living just across the street to each other. Just over a year later and they were engaged to be married. Don’t you just love it how fate has a way sometimes…
Draping foliage and watercolour details for an urban oasis summer in the city wedding for Crisa and Gareth’s, planned and styled by London Bride.
I’m so pleased to share one of my favourite London Bride weddings of last year. I worked with Crisa and Gareth to plan and style their urban summer wedding at MC Motors last July. Despite a fairly limited timescale to pull things together, we collaborated with a team of amazing suppliers for a beautiful summery day in the city for the couple, creating an urban oasis full of foliage and florals, pretty paper details, delicious food and drink as well as unique personal touches throughout. The day was captured perfectly by the amazing Chloe at Caught The Light (who’s stunning film photography really did make it look like the mediterranean!) and was also previously featured on Style Me Pretty.
