An Autumn wedding that combines Old Hollywood glamour with iconic London cityscapes, a relaxed and personal reception with a sprinkling of rain like only London know knows how.

This wedding has such a perfect balance of glamour but with an effortless relaxed format. Inspired by the 1940s, this couple looked every inch the part with the bride in a dazzling Eliza Jane Howell gown and delicate Britten Wedding veil and a bouquet by Daisy Ellen Floral Design that echoed not only the season but the shades of burgundy to co-ordinate with a very dashing groom.

Victoria’s hair and make is up such a gorgeous timeless look, which I’m sure will serve as great inspiration for brides out there. After a traditional Roman Catholic ceremony at the breathtakingly beautiful St Etheldredas Church, the couple and their guests hopped on a gold London bus (who thought a bus could have a hint of glitz?) and took to the iconic areas of St Paul’s for a beautiful backdrop for their portraits with their photographer Louise Adby.

In contrast they chose the relaxed pub setting of The Happenstance in the city where they could indulge in good food and drink whilst adding personal touches to the day for their guests to enjoy such as a temporary tattoo station and a Krispy Kreme doughnut cake. We love how this story transitions through the photographs, and particularly the evening dancing images which just show how much fun was had right until the end of the night!

London City Wedding at The Happenstance by Sam & Louise PhotographyIt’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.
