Part of being a wedding planner is working with some pretty amazing clients, and in some amazing places. Well Gwen and Li-Hur’s wedding was both of these for me. Whilst we had the elegance and luxury backdrop of London’s iconic Claridge’s for the day, this couple loved quirky details, so injected their personalities into the day for their guests to enjoy, with fun touches such as the buttonholes by Fairy Nuff Flowers that were tied with a lego figure, the 80’s evening band that filled the dance floor and the fact that Gwen decided to wear her amazing green leather jacket over her stunning Monique Lhuillier gown for a leather and lace look, all made for a gorgeous spring wedding.

Chiswick House Wedding London by David Jenkins

You may be mistaken to think this wedding isn’t in London given it’s beautiful leafy and spacious surroundings which are brought to life in the radiant sunshine, yet this is indeed a city wedding. Helena and Christian had an incredibly romantic and stylish late afternoon wedding at Chiswick House and Gardens in West London which was captured in that magical light by their photographer, David Jenkins.

“Having moved around the world quite a bit for work, we both agreed getting married at Chiswick House near where Christian grew up was the perfect choice. While Chiswick House and Gardens are quite formal, we wanted to maintain a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Our inspiration for the day was a black-tie garden party. Our colour scheme was based on romantic greys and deep pinks, perfect for a late afternoon wedding.”

Helena walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon as it was a song she had learned to play on the piano as a little girl and has always loved the piece of music. They also asked their close friends and family to read the couples favourites poems, such as E.E. Cummings ‘I Carry your heart’ and Robert Frost’s ‘Master Speed’.  The ceremony was very poignant for them and Helena describes the most memorable part of the day “Saying our vows, it was the most moving moment”.

Words from Helena for those planning a wedding; “Enjoy it! It truly is the most beautiful day of your life and you are surrounded by people who love you.”
