Part two of this peachy dream has possibly one of the greatest group shots ever……. kisses for 50c anyone?
And how about serving some of your favourite fruity cocktails at your evening reception? puts your personal stamp on the day and is certain to be a sure fire hit with guests.
Jo and Luke’s London Big Day was full of unique details, glamorous touches and fantastic fun, all captured to perfection by Julia Boggio.
Capturing The Magic
The exceptional Julia Boggio was our photographer and she is just magical!
The tables looked amazing – the menus and place cards were completed by our stationer Hello!Lucky and personalised to each guest. My friend Jo scribed the table plan on a blackboard to match the stationery motifs which looked brilliant!
Glamorous and Elegant Inspiration
Zoe Lingard: The East Gallery of One Marylebone has the most beautiful crystal chandeliers and we took our inspiration for the tables from them; glamorous and elegant. We used gorgeous damask linens, cut glass chargers and glasses and art-deco style cutlery. Each guest was given their own personalised menu/place card which was folded into the napkin and accented with a paper pinwheel to add a touch of whimsy.
A Work Of Art
Our cake was by Maisie Fantasie, Lemon cake with rose petal jelly, coffee with coffee butter cream and Ginger cake with white chocolate ganache butter cream.
Maisie created a bespoke design taking inspiration from our stationery. It was perfect and a real work of art!
A Fruity Reception
We had a band called Abnormally Funky who were brilliant – Zoe found them for us. In the evening we also hired a bar from Bash Bars which was lit using pink and purple to match the lighting that was used in the dancing space.
The bar was manned with mixologists and they served: Peach Cosmopolitans, Rose Mojitos, Raspberry Belinis, Pink Lemonade and Strawberry Daiquiri’s
Favourite Moments And Useful Advice
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful with the hundreds of tea lights and music (we walked up the aisle to ‘here comes the sun’ by the Beatles). Luke’s sister Laura singing Adele ‘Make You Feel My Love’ was so moving in the ceremony. The dinner was lovely (the room look amazing!) and the speeches from my Dad, Luke’s Dad and Luke were perfect.
My best piece of advice would be to hire a wedding planner – and preferably Zoe Lingard – she is absolutely fantastic and completely helped Luke and I achieve everything we wanted. In the week preceding the wedding everyone commented how calm I was and that was purely down to Zoe! I knew she had everything under control so we could relax and enjoy ourselves.
And finally, just savour every moment of the day as it goes so quickly!
