We know from experience a lot of couples suddenly get to the new year and it hits home that they are getting married this year! Gulp! As exciting as it is, if you are feeling a little overwhelmed and that you may need some support with the planning whether you’ve just got engaged or are mid-way through planning and need a helping hand, feel free to get in touch for a chat to see if we can help!
Special offer of 10% off our wedding day management & co-ordination service when booked in January or FEBRUARY for wedding dates up until 31/05/17.
This service is for those who are confident with the planning process with all elements pretty much in place but who would like to handover things in the last few weeks to ensure the day runs hitch free and to your expectations. In the month leading up to the wedding we will have a site visit to the venue to walk through the plans and we’ll work with you to ensure all your timings, logistics and set up details are all in place and that nothing has been overlooked.
We’ll also get in touch with all your suppliers to check final details with them to make sure they are happy and have everything they need! On the day, we’ll manage the smooth-running of events from start to finish, assist with set up and co-ordinate your suppliers and be on hand to you and your guests so you can fully relax and enjoy the celebrations.
If you are newly engaged or are struggling with any particular element of your wedding planning we offer one-off inspiration sessions to kick start the planning and hourly pay-as-you-go assistance where you can have our expert advice on any areas you need it.
For more information or to receive our brochure with details of our services and fees, or if you’d like to make an enquiry please drop as an email as we’d love to see if we can assist you with your wedding plans.

A behind the scenes look at the London Bride & Otaduy Bridal special bridal showcase last month. We were thrilled to invite readers and brides to this intimate event to try on dresses and chat and be inspired by some of our wedding industry friends!
Part of why I love working in this industry is getting the chance to work and collaborate with like-minded, creative and modern thinking wedding colleagues. It pushes the industry in the right direction and just bouncing ideas, inspiration and swopping stories is really refreshing.
Having been a fan of Barcelona bridal designers, Otaduy and their gorgeous London showroom, we decided to collaborate and hold an intimate bridal event to showcase their new collection, meet with brides (and readers of London Bride!) and also to introduce them to some fabulous wedding brands, suppliers, designers and makers. It was so much fun to see bride’s try on potential contender dresses, with their friends and family with the added fun of trying on veils, shoes, holding a beautiful bouquet as well as be made-up all whilst in a relaxing and intimate atmosphere with delicious and cute mini bottles of sparkling wine courtesy of Cordoniu and refreshing and stylish hydration from Solan de Cabras. Definitely the way dress shopping should be!
As a wedding planner and blogger, it’s also really lovely for me to connect with bride-to-be’s to hear about their days and their styles and wedding inspiration and of course talking all about dresses!
Otaduy showcased their new ‘I Do’ collection, which you can see more of here but is inspired by the glamorous days of disco, and free-spirited style… Otaduy has a lovely balance of feminine dresses and cool separates (plus jackets!) that are for a modern boho bride and are perfect for both a city wedding or something a little more rural. We had a lovely mix of brides at the event who were getting married in the city, the countryside and a few destination weddings too (lucky them!).
Tash & Richard had a beautiful yet rainy July Hackney Round Chapel wedding. Boys in bow-ties, two ceremonies, mis-matched bridesmaids, frozen cocktails and a Jewish Hora dance, we loved co-ordinating this wonderful perfectly imperfect London wedding!
It’s been a little over a year since the lovely Tash and Richard’s wedding that we co-ordinated and I’m so pleased to finally be sharing their fabulous day!
It was July and whilst you’d think that would mean beautiful hazy sunshine, it in fact meant torrential downpours, all day long. And I mean all day. It’s one of the wettest weddings I’ve co-ordinated, ironic really given it was a summer wedding but it absolutely didn’t dampen the day one bit, and I remember how much it actually made everyone laugh and smile because of the ridiculous-ness of it all! I love the image above by their photographer, Emma Case as it just shows, you can’t plan for the weather so you just have to smile and roll with it, just like these two and their guests did.
It really was a beautiful day despite the rain, with pretty mis-matching maids in creams and blush, boys in bow-ties, flowers made by the Groom’s mother, treats of cheese and ice-cream, frozen slush cocktails and two ceremonies, plus a rather epic Hora (Jewish circle dance) that I’ve witnessed at a wedding (not going to lie, the planner in me was concerned about anyone getting hurt but pleased to report everyone was of course fine!).
I’ve loved featuring the write-up from the bride Tash, I know many of you enjoy simply browsing through the images, but if you can, do take a few moments to read their lovely story of their day – as the bride Tash had herself said, “I found it really comforting and touching to read entries about weddings that carried a sense of reality and not everything being totally perfect. There can be so much pressure to get everything ‘right’ and for all the decisions to come naturally and hassle-free.” A wise and wonderful bride… over to you Tash and Richard.
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.
