Liz and Ming's elegant London wedding with it's pretty pastel hues is brightening up my day no end. I'm a sucker for endless glass vessels filled with flowers and the pair have used this design idea to perfection. Their reception space looks so pretty and welcoming. Liz's floral lace gown reflects this Spring like theme, as do the bridesmaids in their soft lilac tone dresses. And while the whole day was beautifully elegant, it also looked like tremendous fun, with beaming grins on everyone's faces. Frances Sales is a master at capturing the joy and it's such a pleasure to share it with you too...and not only that, but we also have the dreamy film from Blue Ridge Weddings as well!

The Bride

Liz the Bride: My gown was from a boutique in Singapore called Silhouette The 
Atelier. It was a small boutique situated in the heart of Singapore 
which I happened to stumble across when I was visiting family back 
home. I wanted a sleek gown with a floral lace embroidery. What I
loved about the boutique was that I had the chance to work closely 
with the tailors to design my gown to exactly how I wanted it to be.

The Groom

Ming chose Alexandra Wood as she was 
recommended to him and she had great reviews online. She does really
 wonderful bespoke suits and her style really suited what Ming was 
looking for.

The Venue

Ming and I both wanted a Spring/Summer wedding and with that a garden wedding. When we found Morden Hall, it was perfect! It had a beautiful garden as the backdrop of an amazing house with lots 
of different rooms filled with comfortable couches and space that we
 thought would be perfect for guests to mingle in and our older guests 
to lounge in. Not only was the venue beautiful, but the staff over at
Morden Hall were brilliant and incredibly experienced in throwing 
weddings. Our wedding event coordinator from Morden Hall - Amber, knew everything about weddings from all cultures! She was warm, organised and really made you feel at ease during the every stressful months and weeks leading up to the big day. On the day itself Amber and her team really made our wedding reception absolutely seamless.

The Styling

As we wanted a Spring wedding we thought that the colour scheme of
 whites, coral and pale peach and pinks would look very simple and 
elegant against bright green foliage that would bring life and a laid
back feel to the decor. For our wedding stationery we had the ever so
 talented Katie from Oh Squirrel. She does the most amazing menu wraps 
using beautiful floral fabrics. They tied it perfectly with the spring 
wedding theme that I was going for.

The Flowers

Roses are a wedding must, and given that our wedding was in May, 
peonies were a definite. I felt that the combination of the 2 gave a 
soft elegant look to our flower arrangements. Our flowers were done by
 the wonderful Flowers by Kirsty.

The Wedding Party

In keeping with the pale pastel colour theme, the bridesmaids 
dresses were a pale lavender colour. These dresses by TNFC were found 
on ASOS. Beautiful, sleek and so flattering on all my bridesmaids!

 The groomsmen suits were from Moss Bros. - chosen by Ming and 
his groomsmen as they offered a good range of very nice suits at
decent prices.

The Ceremony

The wedding ceremony itself took place in the church where Ming and 
I attend. All Souls Church was a fantastic backdrop for the wedding.
 Ming and I also had very talented friends who sang during the service
 and who also gave the sermon during the wedding - this put a very
 special touch on the whole day.

The Entertainment

We had a string quartet (Anything Goes) playing
 during the drinks reception which created a fantastic ambience to the
 day. For our band we went with Ear Candy who were fantastic as well! 
Their repertoire was amazing and they even specially learnt ' You are 
the best thing' by Ray Lamontagne for our first dance. Our guests 
really loved dancing to the songs they played and they were a massive
 hit! Last but not least, no wedding is complete without a photobooth. 
A sure crowd pleaser, our photo booth was from a company called Booth

The Food

Our food was done by Galloping Gourmet. They provided all the
 reception drinks, canapés and the wedding breakfast. I cannot
 recommend them enough! The food was INCREDIBLE and the service that
they provided was second to none. I cannot find a single criticism to
 make. All our guests commented on how great the food was. They are
 also very flexible and easy to work with in catering for all our
 guests different dietary needs.

 Our wedding cake was done by Kristina from Cakes By KB. She was
 fantastic to work with, and her cakes were incredible! We had a 
chocolate cake with a raspberry cream cheese filling, covered with a
 white-chocolate frosting.

The Images & Film

For our photographer Ming and I were really blown 
away by the photos that Frances had taken. From all the other wedding 
photographers that we were browsing through on google, Frances's
 photos really stood out to us. She has a wonderful ability to capture 
what I thought were the best parts of each wedding so beautifully. We 
got to know her better during our engagement shoot and she really put 
us at ease and was really fun to work with.

 We too resorted to google when we were looking for a
 videographer. Again Blue Ridge Weddings really stood out to us. 
Their videos tell the most romantic stories of each couples wedding 
day. We loved how they tastefully incorporate music into their shots 
and they also had a drone and was able to do some amazing shots with
