This morning we’re in the heart of London for Rachel and Max’s City celebrations. The cute couple are both born and bred Londoners, so naturally the big smoke was the only place they wanted to get married.
Rachel is a lawyer from a family of lawyers – so getting married at Lincoln’s Inn was particularly significant for her. Every morning on her commute to work she walks through her wedding venue and gets to reminisce. Probably THE best way to make going to work less painful…
I think it’s fair to say that the shot of Rachel and Max kissing on the dance floor is one of my all time favourite wedding photos – a moment of pure love and happiness captured by Lily & Frank Photography.
And as it’s Friday, we’ve got the wedding film from Simon Clarke Films for you too. Because we’re nice like that.
Get ready to swoon over the roses…
My, this wedding is so swish. You know when every single detail is perfectly executed and exudes a super shiny glossy gorgeousness? that.
Emma looks a vision in her Naomi Neoh gown and the confetti images in particular are to die for. There is also the prettiest marquee interior – the blooms displayed in hampers are a clever and eye-catching idea.
This is English Country Garden at it’s very finest folks.
We’ve almost come through the depths of Winter…the end of February is in sight and today’s wedding will definitely make you feel like Spring is just around the corner. The combination of yellow flowers and gorgeous cornflower blue Bridesmaids dresses evokes daffodils and blue skies. I promise within a few weeks we’ll all be packing away the coats and jumpers and pulling out the dresses and floaty blouses. Well, let’s keep our fingers crossed anyway…
Bride Charlotte looks amazingly chic in an unusual Jesus Peiro gown, which has pockets. I know – so useful. And that giant ballerina bun looks fabulous – Charlotte has some serious cheekbones!!
I think my favourite thing about Charlotte and Nick’s wedding is actually the font they’ve chosen for their paper goods. It’s so simple, but so very effective. The table plan, place names, jam jar labels – everything is beautifully coordinated.
The couple’s lovely day was captured by the inimitable Chris Barber Photography.
Claire and Joseph’s Cambridge wedding couldn’t be more quintessentially English – classy and sophisticated, yet modest and wholesome.
Clare College Chapel is a beautiful ceremony venue – with it’s ancient wooden pews facing the aisle and the sound of the choir creating a magical atmosphere.
The reception was held at Claire’s parents house, in a marquee filled with blue and white details, candles and flowers.
If you’ve never been to Cambridge – please go. Just breathe in some of the history of our country, go punting along the River Cam on a summer’s day and have a Pimms picnic on the riverbank. I promise, you won’t regret it. Claire and Joseph’s wedding will show you why…
Traditionally, as the rhyme goes, a bride should include ‘something blue’ as part of her wedding attire. Not so for Zoe who married her beau Mike at the Andaz Hotel in London last year. Instead the colour red holds special significance for the pair – a nod to their early dating days – and it was this hue that they included in select areas of their wedding decor including Zoe’s exquisite pair of Louboutins.
I know! I’m positively green with envy right now.
I’m also seriously lusting after Zoe and Mike’s cake extravaganza which they lovingly scattered along the centrepiece in the 1901 restaurant for their guests to dine upon. Check out the chocolate cake….!
Lastly serious legend points go to Zoe’s dad for styling Zoe’s hair on her big day. I love the fact that the pair of them spent some treasured moments together on the morning of the big day. Don’t you think Zoe’s hair looks absolutely blinking sublime…
We left our lovely pair just as they arrived at The Gatsby…
