Lee & Jon's prodigious The Gherkin wedding is truly something to write home about. With a monochromatic colour scheme, nods to London through the place names, seating chart and table numbers, a merch table, a cheese AND doughnut tower, and some incredible nitro ice cream and a photo booth, it's safe to say this has to be one of the coolest weddings we've ever seen. Recommended supplier Mark Horton Photos managed to capture the sheer individuality, uniqueness, joy, and energy stupendously. Anyways, if you need me, I'll be dancing alongside the photos of Lee & Jon's incredible nightclub party. 

Lee & Jon's incredible The Gherkin wedding with a greyscale colour scheme, merch table, and doughnut tower!

Our venue choice was definitely what made our day unique. The views of London were just spectacular. And being able to have everyone all in one place and using the space and different levels to go from day to night. Having all of our family and friends in one place to celebrate with us was so special. And involving so many of them was priceless. Not to mention the 15-minute flash mob first dance!

LGBTQ+ The Gherkin Wedding

Lee & Jon really utilised the incredible spaces on offer at The Gherkin wedding venue. Their enchanting wedding celebration was amidst the clouds, and they indulged in exquisite cocktails and delectable cuisine. The unrivaled panoramic vistas of London worked as the couples' backdrop. And what a backdrop! The spellbinding romantic ambiance left everyone breathless. The Beyonce music from start to finish was pretty spellbinding, too. Their nods to London throughout the wedding were brilliant. The tube map table plan, the train ticket place names, the tube stop table numbers... Chef's kiss. Lest we forget their wedding merch... From bags to mugs and pens to badges, every detail in Lee & Jon's wedding was intricately thought out. They truly deserve the title of "coolest couple and coolest wedding".

If we had to give some advice, it would be this. Take your time! Plan it how you want, and figure out how to make it feel like “you” as a couple. Get a fantastic photographer (like we did) to capture every single moment. Mark captured moments that even we didn’t see on the day.
