WEDDINGS, Informal

Claudine and Rob chose to celebrate with a Peckham wedding with local venues and suppliers for their relaxed pub wedding reception with a vintage nod and DIY touches.

London Peckham Pub Wedding and Vintage Bride by We Heart Pictures Photography

If you’re looking for laid back inspiration done with style then this should be it! Gorgeous couple Claudine and Rob chose to celebrate in Peckham with an intimate civil ceremony at their local registry office followed by a fun pun reception. Given the bride is an illustrator there are lots of lovely creative touches that enabled them to put their style to the day and we love their laid back vintage style and use of dried flowers. Also, is there any better location for portraits than a London rooftop car park? Great work by We Heart Pictures Photography.

Islington Wedding London and Pink Needle & Thread Wedding Dress by Miss Gen Photography

Couple Laura and Alex had a perfectly relaxed summer’s day wedding in Islington for their day in August. Starting at Islington Town Hall for their ceremony they then took some time out for some portraits in the nearby streets with their photographer Gen. We adore bride Laura’s peachy pink Needle & Thread wedding dress, and think Alex makes an equally dashing groom in his bespoke Alexandra Wood suit!

We love the capture of all the little looks during the ceremony and those of the couple with their little girl as a family, so cute! The little touches during the day from the tube themed tables to the mixed CD’s were lovely ways to personalise their restaurant reception, and I just have to mention that wedding cheese cake…it looks amazing and I imagine the guests enjoyed tucking into that!

Tropical Themed Peckham Wedding And Rime Arodaky Dress

An unusual ‘Tropical Victorian Themed’ Wedding and Rime Arodaky wedding dress for couple Tracy and Chris at The Asylum and Horniman Museum South London.

Tropical Victorian Themed Wedding and Rime Arodaky Bride at The Asylum and Horniman Museum South London

One of our favourite spots for a ceremony in London, the atmospheric Asylum Chapel in Peckham followed by an elegant ‘tropical’ styled reception at the beautiful Horniman Museum conservatory with it’s amazing vista over London from Forest Hill, South London.

Tracy and Chris were married in July last year, and we love this couple’s personal style and how they’ve injected their own fashion into the bridal outfits. We’re big big fans of bridal separates or two pieces, and Tracy’s very figure flattering choice of Pennington skirt and Caplan top by Rime Arodaky looks seriously cool, feminine and modern. We love how she’s teamed it with a statement fashion forward headpiece by designer Luna Bea and I think we’ll be seeing much more statement headwear on 2017 brides to come!

A mention has to go to the super cool flower girl in her bespoke House of Hackney fabric outfit. How fabulous does she look and so fitting for this ‘Tropical Victorian’ themed wedding which was even translated into the reception venue from the florals to the food and even the gin!

A Rainy Yet Beautiful July Hackney Round Chapel Wedding

WEDDINGS, Elegant, Informal

Photography by Emma Case PhotographyWedding Co-ordinator London Bride

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!

Rainy July Hackney Round Chapel Wedding London by Emma Case Photography

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.

Nova and David had a fun summery 60s style riverside wedding day at The Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe – the very place where they met. 

The Swan at Shakespeare's the Globe Summer Wedding by Babb Photo

I had been waiting a little while to feature this wedding as I was holding off for ‘summer’ to hit us as I love the summery feel to the day, but alas, no such hope for us here in the UK so I guess I’ll just have to share it regardless!

Nova and David had a lovely personal wedding celebration at the place where they fell in love, Shakespeare’s Globe! Puts a whole new meaning to Shakespeare In Love.

As an event manager herself, Nova planned a beautiful day that had subtle and thoughtful nods to her and David’s style as a couple, from the rings to the cake and so lovely to see their adorable little girl Jean be a part of the celebrations too. I love the summery vibe of the flowers by Palais Flowers, Nova in her short 60s style dress and the bridesmaids look super cool in their matching floral print skirts. I love the last shot of Nova and David just sitting chilling on the Millennium Bridge. Is there a better way to end your wedding? I’m not sure…

Oh and look out for the mischievous flower girls… they looked like they had the best day, ever!

It’s great to see how couple Lisa and Will built a wedding that reflected them, especially in the venue they chose which allowed them to have a colourful and playful theme with a hint of nostalgia in her gorgeous fifties style Candy Anthony dress. Lots of colour for their late summer day with lots of ‘sweet’ details, quite literally with an amazing dessert table along with thoughtful favours of books for their guests and lots of entertaining speeches!

Summer MC Motors London Warehouse Wedding by Caught The Light and 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.
