Vanessa and Anthony had a memorable ceremony near to the Proposal location, at The National Theatre and a relaxed reception at 06 St Chad’s.
This is a gorgeous wedding, which has such a beautiful relaxed feel to it. Vanessa’s bridal style is vintage inspired with her stunning antique lace dress and modern vintage shoes. As a Spring wedding it’s so fun to see bright colours used in the floral details in the flowers.
Lovely how they incorporated their story of meeting each other into the day by choosing venues that were near to where their story met, and now they have added more wonderful new memories there too.
- Working with their vintage inspired style of the day, Vanessa’s wedding dress was made from antique lace. She also wore beautiful Rachel Simpson shoes.
- I love the style from the 1930s and 1940s, which guided the theme and style of the wedding. My dress had the most stunning antique lace which was sourced from Jane Bourvis. Each of her dresses are handcrafted and most importantly unique, and from the moment I put it on and I just knew it was the perfect dress for me.
With the wedding taking place in May, I love the hint of spring in the gorgeous bouquet of oranges and yellows by That Flower Shop.
Just the spot
It’s always so special to hear about couples who met in the city when they choose a location or venue which is somewhere that holds memories, and for Vanessa and Anthony nearby was where it all started so they chose The Deck at the National Theatre for their ceremony.
We wanted our wedding to capture the aspects of the city that we love and to be able to share this with our family and friends. The National Theatre is near where we met and where Anthony proposed, so this part of London holds many special memories for us.
I walked down the aisle to El Noi de la Mare by Jean-Felix Lalanne & Muriel Anderson. The song was a suggestion from my brother and it added a connection with my Spanish roots.
With a little help from THEIR friends
- After the ceremony the reception was held at 06 St Chad’s Place where they added some personality to the tables with some film related deocr, with popcorn and clapper boards for table numbers.
- We kept the day small and intimate which included lots of personal touches. Our cake was made by the Anthony’s parents and exceeding our expectations. Anthony’s dad also did our videography for the day and I had my friends help with making the decorations and supply the jars we used for the table flowers and candles. Our friend, Sam, played our first song and we had our friend Alex Mayor do a sterling job DJing in the evening.
- We were fortunate to have the talented Lisa Jane as our photographer for the wedding. We loved her style from the moment we stumbled across her and are completely stunned by the collection of wonderful images of our special day!
Forget rules and expectations. No two weddings are the same. It’s about capturing those little details that express what you are as a couple.
It meant the world to us to have our close family and friends travel from various corners of the world to share in and celebrate our love for one another. Ultimately this is what made the day so special to us and was worth all those countless hours of planning!
Such a pleasure to feature your day Vanessa and Anthony, these photos are so incredibly warming and full of those little moments that I know will be treasured for many years thanks to the talents of photographer, Lisa Jane.
