Leah and Alex had a beautifully elegant Islington wedding with classic details for their relaxed pub wedding.

Paul and Fabien kept their same sex London wedding local with their ceremony and reception moments from their home in Battersea last August. From their super stylish pink and blue suits, to heartfelt words in the ceremony and handmade touches for their guests, there were certainly a fair few tears shed in this beautifully local wedding.
During their travels couple Sarah and Luke ended up in London and deciding on saying I Do in the city. With a relaxed day with their friends and family they danced down the aisle, and all the way through until the early hours. Lots of happy tears, romantic kisses and a stylish bride all captured perfectly by Miss Gen.
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.
Tom and Eve had a fun and relaxed pub wedding after their town hall ceremony in Stoke Newington. I love bride Eve’s slightly 60s style with her dashing groom and pretty maid all perfectly paired. They added some lovely fun touches such as pom poms, balloons and lights to the pub to ‘prettify’ their pub ‘knees up’.
Leonie & Nick had a colourful Spring wedding in Islington, co-ordinated by London Bride with blooms bursting from terrariums, an a capella choir, coloured wedding dress and lots of eclectic decor.
I’m so excited to share today’s wedding of Leonie and Nick. This was a gorgeous Spring wedding from earlier this year that was co-ordinated by London Bride! So, you know the drill – any weddings by us tend to be a little long in length as it’s so hard to edit them down! I’ll be honest also in that Leonie and Nick are ridiculously photogenic that there were just too many beautiful photos from Lovestruck Photography to choose from, so excuse the rather lengthy post!
Leonie and Nick added so much fun, character and colour to their relaxed Islington pub wedding, with lots of personal details; many combined with efforts of some very talented and kind friends, it just shows you can transform any space and I really loved seeing so much colour! I worked with them in the lead up to the day and it was lovely to style and set up all their personal decorative touches along with the incredible flowers from That Flower Shop, and THOSE amazing gold terrariums that the bride sourced.
Do have a read below for Leonie (and Nick’s!) wonderful write up of the day, they also sum it up with some wonderful advice which I wanted to post here too:
I felt a lot more of a ‘bride’ on the day than I was expecting. Turns out it’s not just the white dress that does it! Try and get round and talk to everyone but do go off and have a moment by yourself (as well as with your new husband!) when you want to.
Spend time with the family members that you don’t often see. Make sure you eat the nice food, drink the fancy champagne and dance – it’s more important to have a good time in your dress than keep it pristine.
Having tied the knot in Mexico, Lauren and David had a Mad Hatters wedding reception in the city at The Happenstance with the bride in her own something blue fifties dress.
It’s not uncommon now for couples to choose a two-part wedding celebration. Many want to jet off somewhere exotic for some sunshine with close friends and family or perhaps even an intimate elopement, but with this comes a limit to your guest list which is never easy an easy decision to make.
Therefore a double celebration with a small destination wedding and a BIG party back home is a great compromise! That’s what today’s couple Lauren and David did, who celebrated in the city at The Happenstance with not only St Paul’s as a stunning backdrop but beautiful blue skies that matched Lauren’s fun choice of dress for their spring ‘mad hatters tea party’ wedding reception.
Lucy & Alex were a laid back ‘anti-wedding’ couple who managed to have the day they wanted whilst doing it in style.
Today I’m sharing a very honest real wedding post from couple Lucy and Alex (Lucy runs one of my favourite online stationery boutiques, Quill London), who were married in September last year in Islington. Whilst they had a very beautiful low key relaxed day, they were in many ways pretty ‘anti-wedding’. I’m actually really pleased to share a post like this, as whilst there are many brides out there who LOVE being a bride-t0-be, being engaged and all the excitement, planning and fun it brings there are a number of ladies (or indeed couples) who are much less about the ‘wedding’ and more about the ‘marriage’ who feel a bit disheartened with the planning. As today’s bride Lucy clearly wrote: “I didn’t want a “WEDDING!” I didn’t really want to be a bride. I just wanted to be married.”
I always aim for the blog to be honest and authentic so I think it’s an inspiring post as I hope that for those out there who feel overwhelmed by the idea of their wedding or being a bride, this shows that it can be done beautifully, informally and most importantly in a way that’s right for you. There was no first dance or favours, but there was a catch up over coffee, heartfelt speeches, and an improvised personalised version of ‘Ho, Hey’ for the couple – all of which were meaningful moments and that’s what makes a beautiful wedding. Oh and perhaps those Crosstown Doughnuts helped…
