Libby and Ben had a beautifully elegant September wedding. The bride wore a Jenny Packham dress and bridesmaids in pink by Belle & Bunty with florals by The Flower Appreciation Society against the stunning backdrop of Home House, London.
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.

After planning a ‘big wedding’ Michael and Ashleigh re-evaluated their plans and chose to have a secret little London elopement on Christmas Eve. Utterly romantic, despite the rain they said ‘I Do’ at Old Chelsea Town Hall followed by enjoying an evening at The Rosewood Hotel for lobster, jazz and cocktails.
There is just something so incredibly romantic and heartwarming about today’s real wedding (complete with umbrella, how typically ‘London’), and it’s such a pleasure to share Michael and Ashleigh’s incredibly intimate day.
It’s not an uncommon story to hear of couples who are planning for a traditional ‘big’ wedding but find during this time the pressure, stress, politics and even finance perhaps all too much and they question their wedding plans. For couples who are quite private people, who may worry about being centre stage an elopement or simple wedding ceremony with just the two of you makes complete sense and that’s just what Michael and Ashleigh chose.
It’s a reminder to us all to not get carried away by what others do, or what we think we should do – and that to be truly happy means being yourselves on your wedding day, whatever way that is. Plus, look how gorgeous, relaxed and happy they are, it clearly was the best decision they made!
I love that on Christmas day they were able to tell their families they were married! What a wonderful Christmas present…
