Colourful Urban London Wedding in Chelsea + Kings Cross

Aisle Style, WEDDINGS, Informal, Modern, Urban

Photography by Eclection Photography

Leila and Perry chose a sweet Chelsea ceremony followed by a walk along the picturesque Albert Bridge before joining their guests for a colourful urban reception in Kings Cross. This couple injected colour and style with her floral crown and his check suit and the cheery green bridesmaids!

Leila and Perry’s wedding has been a lovely wedding to write up due to all the gorgeous colour injected, it just adds so much fun and cheer to a wedding! They even asked the guests to wear bright colours which is such a great idea.

Leila and Perry were married in September 2015, and chose to hold an intimate ceremony at The Chelsea Registry Office given they had first met on the Kings Road and also that Leila’s parents in fact married there 37 years ago which is just lovely and so meaningful.

Leila’s bridal style is modern and I love her bright floral crown which works nicely with the colourful bridesmaids dresses too. Groom Perry is seriously upping the style stakes too, what a fabulous check suit! They injected their styles and personalities into the day really well, from an epic selection of Brownie’s from Leila’s own bakery to a Lebanese belly dancer and hip hop DJ!

Although 06 St Chad’s is no longer taking wedding bookings (shame!) I do love how Jam Jar Flowers dressed the beams with hops, a great idea and way of adding decor to a tall space.

Eclectic Playful Rooftop Wedding London

WEDDINGS, Informal

Photography by Joanna Brown

An LA bride, a London rooftop, mariachi music, a groom in pink and a theatric ceremony. David and Saskia certainly put the playful and party into their day. 

This was a hard wedding to write a title for. Perhaps I best not try to describe it, but let’s just say there’s a rooftop, a ton of paper flowers, faux cherry blossom trees, an actual heart shaped cake(as in from the body), mariachi music, a seriously dapper groom in powder pink and a bride in an old faithful dress.

The couple Saskia (from LA) and David added some serious tongue in cheek to their London wedding, with a playful take turning it into a super cool party.

Urban Brights Winter Wedding At The Asylum And MC Motors

WEDDINGS, Elegant, Informal, Urban

Urban and atmospheric wedding with winter brights for couple Jess and Nick’s February celebrations at the elegant yet distressed The Asylum and MC Motors. 

Urban Brights Winter Wedding by Robbins Photographic, Co-ordination by London Bride

It’s actually quite a struggle for me to put together the features on weddings that I’ve planned and been a part of, and for that reason you’ll notice they generally have a lot more images so I can only apologise in advance if this is a lengthy one!

I co-ordinated this urban brights winter wedding earlier in February and it’s taken me quite some time just to edit the images down. Partly because Lee at Robbins Phogoraphic has captured the day in such a way I almost feel like I can’t miss anything out, partly because Jess and Nick are a seriously good looking couple and partly because the day was beautiful – in style and in atmosphere. I’m sure you’ll see my struggle!

Jess and Nick managed to combine so much into their day. It was bright but stylish, informal yet romantic whilst being elegant and urban.  Not many couples choose February as a month to marry in, but with colourful wild flowers by Palais Flowers, beautifully worn venues, a cosy atmosphere and all your loved ones together it really could have been any day of the year.

Behind The Scenes with London Bride – An MC Motors Wedding

LONDON BRIDE LIFE, WEDDINGS, Elegant, Urban

London Bride MC Motors Wedding - Caught The Light Photography

2014 was a pretty crazy summer for London Bride on the wedding planning side, but now I am in more calmer waters playing post wedding season catch up I have something quite exciting to share with you! Below is a ‘Behind The Scenes with London Bride’ video filmed at one of my favourite weddings of the year in July for my couple Crisa and Gareth and their MC Motors wedding. It’s one of my favourite venues to work at (no surprises there) and with a beautiful brief to work to, the styling of the day all came together perfectly and we bought a little bit of the Mediterranean to East London. It was a fabulous day, thanks to an amazing team of hard-working and talented suppliers who we bought on board to make it all possible.

I think *sometimes* people assume as a wedding planner, I have a glamorous job, but I hope this behind the scenes video acts as a bit of insight into how much hard work goes into the set up of a wedding (not to mention all the meetings, emails and months and months of planning beforehand of course!), and how it is all bought together on the day by everyone involved. The wedding world is full of ‘Pinterest-perfect’ inspiration and ‘editorially’ styled shoots but I wanted to show the reality of a real-life wedding day as it actually happens!

Huge thanks to Castle Gibson and all the suppliers (please see credits below) for kindly letting me film them, and of course to Crisa and Gareth and all their wonderful friends and family. Hope you enjoy the film, worth watching with the music up!

Disclaimer: I  have a very hands-on approach to the weddings I plan, so would like to excuse my dishevelled appearance, but I’d like to think that no-one would look particularly great on a 16 hour day on their feet in July, in wedding season. So this is reality here folks, as it happens – it’s not about looking glamorous and not getting your hands dirty, it’s about getting things done!

Cosy Seasonal Brixton East Warehouse Wedding

WEDDINGS, Informal, Urban

Intimate Winter Brixton East Wedding London by Babb Photo

I’m sure you’ll be struck immediately by the warm, cosy and low-lit images from Laura at Babb Photo for this lovely November wedding. Colette and Ray’s wedding looks so inviting, from the London Townhouse ceremony location in Peckham to the urban London warehouse, Brixton East brimming with twinkling fairy lights, shimmering candles and a scattering of olive leaf branches.

A fabulous idea to serve up pizza from a wood-fire oven for their guests. I mean who wouldn’t want to dig into that and a glass of red wine? Dessert was suitably decadent with a tower of doughnuts and a rainbow of flavoured meringues that the guests were able to help themselves to along with some mulled wine.

They began the day with a simple and intimate ceremony at Southwark Registry office in Peckham with just their close friends and family joining them. They then headed to the former furniture warehouse, Brixton East where they had an informal party with good wine, good food in beautiful cosy surroundings.

Modern Vintage Romantic Wedding Shoot – Chosen Wedding Fair

INSPIRATION, Design & Decor, DIY, Florals, Food & Drink, PLANNING, Events Calendar

Modern Vintage Styled Romantic Inspired Wedding Shoot by Paola De Paola

Whilst we’re used to seeing lots of ‘vintage’ inspired wedding shoots, I love the fun fresh style to this shoot that puts a more modern spin on the whole styling. This shoot was the brain child of photographer Paola de Paola and Lauren of French Made with Curious Fair and Chosen Wedding stepping on board to bring things together further.

The project was a collaboration with talented friends and suppliers who are exhibitors at the upcoming Chosen Wedding Fair which will take place on Sunday 27th April at Islington Assembly Hall. 

“With the idea of showcasing a contemporary styled vintage wedding – the style of Chosen Wedding Fairs – we hope that the images show the unique, bespoke and fresh ideas that are on offer from these and more talented suppliers who are part of the Chosen family, as well as the fun, freedom and exhilaration that two people share on their wedding day.” 

The shoot that took place at alternative wedding venue, a Victorian warehouse Brixton East showcases a modern vintage romantic ‘secret wedding’ which offers a fresh approach just like the Chosen Wedding Fair aims to do. “We really wanted to show how contemporary styling could bring a different look or edge to a vintage styled wedding, offering an alternative fresh look to what is already lovely, but may have been done before. Finding Brixton East was a fantastic part of the journey in planning the shoot, the brickwork walls, wooden flooring and rustic feel set the perfect backdrop for the playful ‘secret wedding’ shoot bursting with colour, excitement and a lot of tiny details to bring the wow factor to life.”

Curious Fair who also style the Chosen Wedding Fair’s event interior design – set chose a very romantic pink and pastel colour palette interspersed with glitter and sequins giving it a contemporary Art Deco vibe – something that the venue for our April fair encapsulates at the Deco built Assembly Hall in Islington. They also created geometric shape decorations placed throughout the sequinned tablescape. They created a couple of Art Deco inspired headdresses made from upcycled jewellery.

French Made owner Lauren combines her French background and love for fantastic tasting and high quality food with her now London based eclectic, rustic and vintage inspired style, they will be exhibiting with Chosen Wedding Fair in October.

Paola is a London based photographer who’s style of work encapsulates Chosen Wedding Fair’s vision – bringing to life contemporary but with a vintage style twist, you van meet Paola on April 27th and October 19th.

The Chosen Wedding Fair was created in 2012 by a frustrated bride-to-be, and has steadily been growing as it aims for a fresh and fun way to discover and design your own unique personalised wedding. Chosen work very hard to handpick each exhibitor and they are fortunate enough to showcase excellent talent from bespoke designer makers and vintage aficionados in the surrounding area. 

Their upcoming London event is held at Islington Assembly Hall on Sunday April 27th and also later in the year on October 19th 2014. To find out more information or to book tickets visit their website: www.chosenwedding.com
