Oh my! I have a sneaking suspicion that you are going to fall in love with this afternoon’s wedding – that of Jacqueline and Joe who married on Lusty Beg Island amidst the backdrop of New Year’s revelries.
For a start Jacqueline is BEAUTIFUL with delicious bridal accessories to match – I mean you just can’t help but gawp at her super sparkly Gucci shoes in awe. But that’s not all!
I adore pretty much EVERYTHING in this wonderful ‘I do’ from the illustrated stationery to the super chic bridesmaid dresses from BHLDN all the way through to the epic portrait shots by the Guinness sign and the dapper men in tweed. And you need to check out the ceiling accessories adorning the pair’s wedding reception – now that’s how to drape paper chains in style.
Take it away you gorgeous pair!
The glamour of a private dining room is indisputable and Sarah and Lee picked a really, really good one for their small but perfectly formed wedding.
Kettner’s in Soho is all prim-and-proper-Jane-Austin-style dining meets moonshine-swigging-speakeasy-flip-flappery. If you’re thinking ‘ummmm whaaaat?’ right now, go with it.
Yes, it does sounds like a bizarre combination. But, read on, have a look at the lovely images and it will all make sense.
A Big Party
Sarah The Bride: We wanted to get married in London – our home – and we wanted both a small intimate ceremony, but with a large party to celebrate with friends and family in the evening. Our venues – Burgh House in Hampstead and Kettner’s in Soho – completely fitted the bill and we fell head-over-heels for their individual charm. Burgh House provided us with the intimate setting we wanted for our ceremony and Kettner’s, with it’s 1920s former members’ club wood-panelled room, was the glamorous location for our wedding breakfast and party.
Glamorous Up Do
My hair was by the amazing Sarah-Louise at Daniel Hersheson. She flew through the night from a photo shoot in the Bahamas to get back in time to style my hair! I always wear my hair down, but knew I wanted my hair up for the wedding as the back of my dress was so beautifully intricate. It did mean I was a little nervous about how to have it, but once I had found the style and I’d had my hair trial, I couldn’t wait to have it done again for the wedding!… View the full post.
There’s not many of us that can say that they’ve got married and have held their wedding reception in a headmaster’s garden at a real life school. But Alice and George did just that in July earlier this year.
Their beautiful ceremony took place in the Charterhouse School’s chapel – an exquisite building that is most definitely a far cry from the scrappy hall that I used to have assembly in when I was a young lass.
The newlyweds then headed over to the house of George’s father who happens to be the Headmaster of Charterhouse School to continue the celebrations.
And just wait until you see Alice’s dress, folks…it is breathtakingly beautiful.
Headmaster, Vicar and Toastmaster Too
My now father-in-law is the Headmaster of Charterhouse School, but also happens to be a vicar, so he married us in the chapel and acted as the toast master for the day.
The wedding was on the first day of the Olympics, so the night before with my bridesmaids (and one usher) we watched the opening ceremony in the hotel bar as we ate some food.
Original French Lace
The wonderfully fabulous Jane Bourvis made my dress (there is no other way to describe her!)
I work in Portobello where her shop is and I was passing one day and popped in not knowing it sold wedding dresses, and before George had even asked me!. When I was in there I saw this amazing dress and thought it I ever get married that would be my perfect dress.… View the full post.
