A short but oh so sweet wedding today! The very stylish Annie and James were married in June last year with the day captured beautifully by Emma Jane at Caught The Light photography. A stylish city wedding, with a gastro pub reception, Annie and James wanted the day to be relaxed and with the help of their wonderful friends and family, all helped to bring the day together. And look at that blue sky, how lucky they were. Now come on and hurry up Spring!
I have to mention Annie’s beautiful style, that soft rust coloured Temperley gown is simply stunning and I love her neat ballerina bun! Brides, just goes to show you don’t have to wear white on your wedding day, I love the soft colours on Annie and the complimenting bridesmaids in rose also. So pretty!
From Annie: “When we started planning our wedding we decided that we wanted a relaxed day without too many formalities, having a really great celebration with close friends and family was the most important thing to us. I was brought up in London, and we are both foodies so a Town Hall wedding followed by a reception at a gastro pub seemed perfect. We did nearly everything ourselves and with friends – the invitations, the flowers, decorating the pub etc, James even DJ’d at the party in the evening all of which made the day feel even more special and very personal to us.”
What was the most special moment of the day? Walking back down the aisle together, knowing we were married.
What music did you walk down the aisle to? An excerpt from the opera Cavalleria Rusticana (chosen for us by my mum).
Do you have any planning advice for other brides? Decide which elements are important to you from the beginning and focus on those. I decided I didn’t want too long to stew over tiny details – we planned our wedding in 5 months. Remind yourself that this is your only chance to do this. It’s such an exciting time and the only time in your life you will be made to feel so special, so enjoy!
Congratulations to Annie and James on a wonderfully relaxed but stylish celebration and thanks to the super Emma Jane at Caught The Light – thanks for sharing this day!
