A back to front wedding for Laura and Tom who were married the day before Valentine’s day this year. They celebrated with a family dinner before the ceremony and a big party after in St Pancras, Kings Cross and of course the bride wore two outfits!
Laura and Tom tied the knot on 13th February this year (the day before Valentine’s day!) with the wedding taking place at Kings Cross, with a ceremony in St Pancras station and a reception at 06 St Chad’s however it wasn’t a typical wedding day. This couple decided to have it back to front, so had a lovely family lunch before the ceremony and then a party reception for everyone afterwards! The bride wore two outfits for the different parts of the day, and I love her different styles from city to chic.
Whilst it may not be the most practical venue for a ceremony (read more below!) it’s certainly unusual and an amazing iconic place to say that you got married! I love the photo above, looks like a 1940s wedding in the modern day!
Do have a read below of Laura’s wedding planning journey, and if you’re reading this as a ‘just engaged’ bride to be, then definitely take her advice below and bask in all the celebratory glory!
For any brides planning an elegant London wedding, then this should be all the inspiration you need! Libby and Ben were married in September last year, and it encompasses everything a sophisticated London wedding is about.
From the meaningful Church ceremony to a ride in a white London cab, to the relaxed but grand setting of Home House it was a picture perfect day captured by Caught The Light.
Libby’s style is sophisticated and feminine in her Georgia by Jenny Packham dress, and Ben looks smart and relaxed in his beautiful blue suit. I love that you can still see little pieces of confetti in Libby’s hair throughout the day, the perfect ‘just married’ memento!
I love the slightly undone flowers by The Flower Appreciation Society against the more decadent backdrop of the venue, and the little details in their stationery, the delicious looking naked cake, to the canapés (those mini fish and chips!!) were well thought-through and all tied in beautifully to the day.
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.
It’s always exciting to see the new collections from Jenny Packham, and here’s a first look off the catwalk of some of my favourites from the Jenny Packham 2016 collection. For all those brides on the dress search, you’ll be wanting to keep an eye out for these!
I’m pretty happy as it seems sleeves are in. Yes. A number of the dresses feature proper, floaty sleeves and even long wrist length sleeves that are both elegant, feminine and demure. Whilst some of the styles are beautifully elegant with their high necklines, others feature a deep v which is sophisticated and sexy.
The signature style of metallics, beading detail and heavy embellishment is on track and there are certainly some standout dresses for me, especially knowing how popular the ‘Esme‘ from 2013 has been I think we’ll be certain to see a number of brides choose to sparkle in the Portia and Hermia for their incredible elegance and starlet styles.
