A back to front wedding for Laura and Tom who were married the day before Valentine’s day this year. They celebrated with a family dinner before the ceremony and a big party after in St Pancras, Kings Cross and of course the bride wore two outfits!
Laura and Tom tied the knot on 13th February this year (the day before Valentine’s day!) with the wedding taking place at Kings Cross, with a ceremony in St Pancras station and a reception at 06 St Chad’s however it wasn’t a typical wedding day. This couple decided to have it back to front, so had a lovely family lunch before the ceremony and then a party reception for everyone afterwards! The bride wore two outfits for the different parts of the day, and I love her different styles from city to chic.
Whilst it may not be the most practical venue for a ceremony (read more below!) it’s certainly unusual and an amazing iconic place to say that you got married! I love the photo above, looks like a 1940s wedding in the modern day!
Do have a read below of Laura’s wedding planning journey, and if you’re reading this as a ‘just engaged’ bride to be, then definitely take her advice below and bask in all the celebratory glory!
After planning a ‘big wedding’ Michael and Ashleigh re-evaluated their plans and chose to have a secret little London elopement on Christmas Eve. Utterly romantic, despite the rain they said ‘I Do’ at Old Chelsea Town Hall followed by enjoying an evening at The Rosewood Hotel for lobster, jazz and cocktails.
There is just something so incredibly romantic and heartwarming about today’s real wedding (complete with umbrella, how typically ‘London’), and it’s such a pleasure to share Michael and Ashleigh’s incredibly intimate day.
It’s not an uncommon story to hear of couples who are planning for a traditional ‘big’ wedding but find during this time the pressure, stress, politics and even finance perhaps all too much and they question their wedding plans. For couples who are quite private people, who may worry about being centre stage an elopement or simple wedding ceremony with just the two of you makes complete sense and that’s just what Michael and Ashleigh chose.
It’s a reminder to us all to not get carried away by what others do, or what we think we should do – and that to be truly happy means being yourselves on your wedding day, whatever way that is. Plus, look how gorgeous, relaxed and happy they are, it clearly was the best decision they made!
I love that on Christmas day they were able to tell their families they were married! What a wonderful Christmas present…
Lauren and Joe had a stylish winter wedding at The Aslyum full of personal touches with a romantic candlelit ceremony and bride Lauren chose a Vivienne Westwood dress alongside her bridesmaids in deep red jumpsuits.
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.
Annie and Charlie focussed their day around feasting at St John Restaurant for their wedding and with a winter’s coat (her ‘something blue’) to keep her warm, carols and Christmas trees at the Church and cocktails and swing music to follow, it was the perfect festive celebration with their friends and family.
Yikes, warning ladies and gents…I’m about to utter the “C” word so if you still want to imagine we are in our Great British Summertime, save this one for a rainy day (oh, that’ll be now then!). I’m sure many of you are now planning for your winter weddings so this is a beautiful wedding which took place close to Christmas with all the wintery wonderness you’d expect.
