Hollie’s The Vampire’s Wife dress is about to knock your sparkly socks off. You know we can’t resist a metallic wedding dress, and this one is no exception. With Recommended Supplier, Jessica Grace Photography, on hand to capture each special moment, you know it’s worth the scrolling time! Hollie & Tom wanted an English cottage garden vibe with a contemporary twist, opting for seasonal blooms and pastel tones. To reduce costs they made all their wedding bouquets, buttonholes and table flowers (which doubled as aisle flowers!) Their ceremony was led by Recommended Supplier, Roxy Celebrates Love, and set the tone for an incredible day filled with love!

Two bridesmaids and I went to Covent Garden market together at 4 AM two days before the wedding. We then spent the next two days

making posies!

Hollie & Tom planned the majority of their wedding in 8 weeks, and so they would suggest starting early! They also found a wedding planner incredibly helpful; having one 4 weeks in the lead-up to their big day meant each aspect was managed perfectly. Also, prioritise the number of people you want there and allocate your budget accordingly! 


You know we’re all about a metallic wedding dress, and we’re loving Hollie’s choice. Opting for an alternative bridal look is a fantastic way to showcase your personality and your style! Or, if you’d still like a traditional white wedding dress, then why not change things up for your reception dress? Hey, who would ever say no to two dresses… not us. 


Celebrating Hollie’s Chinese heritage was incredibly important to both Hollie & Tom. Finding a venue while also being able to have a full 10-course Chinese banquet, all catered on-site, was one of the things that made their wedding unique! It was important that they were able to include the banquet & Chinese Tea Ceremony to reflect Hollie’s heritage, as well as having aspects of a western wedding.

Hollie & Tom incorporated the Chinese Double Happiness sign within their flower arch. 

One of my favourite moments was having our pictures taken up in the lighthouse while the sun was setting and seeing all our friends and family enjoying the early evening down below. The venue is on the river so seeing the sunset over the Canary Wharf skyline whilst our guests laughed and chatted below was really magical.

Hollie’s The Vampire’s Wife dress is the icing on top of this very stylish wedding cake. We absolutely love the floral pastel installations throughout, which work perfectly against the industrial backdrop of Trinity Buoy Wharf. Of course, the incorporation of Hollie’s Chinese heritage was incredibly important, and we have plenty of help when it comes to planning a multicultural wedding day
