Inspiration

Ring the ('kissing') bell as we have one hell of a city wedding for you to pore over today. There are palm fronds, moss and succulents in terrariums, plus delicious sharing platters, a doughnut wall and signature cocktails to satisfy your appetite. Taking care of your fashion fix is Bride Alex's stunning 'Cassiopeia' Jenny Packham wedding dress. We're completely smitten with its soft hues and delicate embellishment, and think you're going to love it too.

What Made Our Day Unique

Designing & creating so much of it ourselves and knowing that nothing made it to the day without really meaning something to us. We wanted every one of our guests to feel so loved and to have the best time by experiencing all of our favourite things that define us a couple, whether it was Persian inspired sharing platters, California cool inspired vibes or South African inspired boozy coffees. We didn't allow ourselves to be restricted to just one thing we liked - we made a wedding that was a celebration of everything we loved.

Jenny Packham Wedding Dress

Team RMW have all done a little swoon over bride Alex's 'Cassiopeia' Jenny Packham wedding dress today. The delicate embroidery in light green and pink is truly exquisite, complementing the weddings colour palette and botanical theme beautifully. An absolutely stunning edition to Jenny's bridal collection and our archives of RMW Jenny Packham real brides.

Inspiration & Styling

We've both lived independently in LA but built our relationship together in London so we wanted to celebrate our love for both places in a modern, welcoming way that was relaxed & intimate; we were determined to combine unexpected touches with details that people would instantly recognise as us. We featured palm trees wherever we could, embraced the warehouse beauty of bare bricks and natural light then filled the day with joy; from an old-school London cab arrival to succulents housed in copper terrariums and an easel timeline of our relationship, nothing was box-ticking and everything was personal.

Alex & James
The bond between a couple and their suppliers is truly a lovely thing to see. Alex and James talk about the lovely relationships they built with their suppliers. "We're both big believers in gut instinct so we met everyone we thought could be right for us, either in person over a glass of wine or on Skype with a cup of tea because there's just no substitute for chemistry, whether it's with the one you're going to marry or the one who's going to photograph, film, feed or entertain you while that happens!" We couldn't agree more with this advice, which is why we handpick all of the suppliers in our directory, The List, to make sure you've got peace of mind you're working with the very best.
