Michael and I fell in love in London so it made sense to tie the knot where it all began. We chose to get married at The Ace Hotel
in Shoreditch, we wanted somewhere we could hang out with all our loved ones and let our hair down - it was so unmistakably us. We also wanted a venue that we could do it all in; the ceremony, the reception, the food and the party. Our ceremony was in the 100 Room which has panoramic city views of London. As most people were travelling from out of town we wanted something that was both epic and intimate at the same time, we read our own vows, laughed, cried and squealed. The reception took place on the terrace, we served bubbles and guests could help themselves to beers from the SMEG fridge by the bar.
Kristie, our wedding co-ordinator at The Ace, made the whole day stress-free and unforgettable. We can’t thank her enough!
We’re big foodies. Guests had their pick of a three course meal. We set up a cheese table at 10pm and served bacon butties at midnight. In all the wedding’s we’ve been to we’ve never eaten any wedding cake so we swapped out cake for one of our loves; Tequila. We tiered shots of Don Julio Anejo tequila on a cake stand. And they went down well.
We didn’t have a colour theme, we hate anything too regimented. We wanted to keep the space quite structural and almost masculine because of its modern and slick design. Foliage was a strong theme throughout, Katie from Worm London
is the creative behind our blooms and THAT ARCH! Our dear friend Giles Miller Studio
designed and produced our table décor, he did it all; the clean, contemporary mirrored table plan, the equally awesome table names and the unique dog tags that coupled as favours for all our guests.
The Wedding Party
We didn’t have groomsmen or bridesmaids, although my sisters were rockstars. We wanted our guests to enjoy the day and not be running around after us. I had a Woman of Honour, Lois, and Michael had a best man, Jason. Mum walked me down the aisle to Mystify by INXS, Let’s Dance by Bowie was our exit song.
We’re so lucky to have so many talented friends to call on in London. DJ Cam Brott brought the party and it went OFF. We had a disco ball from Aurora which was so vibey. We couldn’t feel our feet for weeks!
The Photography & Videography
did our photography and video. Both were everything we dreamed of and more! We were looking for someone who would take relaxed, un-posed cool snaps of the whole day.
It’s so important that your wedding reflects your personal style and taste, and that when it comes to your big day, you feel like you—the very best version of yourself, and not someone else. Ignore all the pressures and just do you.
