I think it goes without saying that Khaly’s bridal style is effortless, boho elegance at it’s finest. The ORIGINAL VINTAGE 70S off the shoulder layered lace gown is relaxed but feminine and with her dark flowing locks, soft metallic eyes and that incredible headpiece by JOANNA REED she looks every inch the perfect boho bride with her dashing groom in blue. Not to mention her girls looking fair maids in their floor length dark floral dresses (from Marks and Spencer’s would you believe, just goes to show keep your mind open!),
The super cool boho chic backdrop of photographic location THE ROOST in Hackney was not only a local venue for them, but one that complimented this couple’s style perfectly. Ending the night with a DJ dance party in the basement and a pizza van is a pretty good way to see the evening out I say.
Also worth noting to anyone thinking about speeches, and how you imagine they’ll be a few minutes each at the most, as these guys prove, they can go on for over an hour so you might want to keep that in mind! Sounds like they were worth every minute.
If you’re looking for laid back inspiration done with style then this should be it! Gorgeous couple Claudine and Rob chose to celebrate in Peckham with an intimate civil ceremony at their local registry office followed by a fun pun reception. Given the bride is an illustrator there are lots of lovely creative touches that enabled them to put their style to the day and we love their laid back vintage style and use of dried flowers. Also, is there any better location for portraits than a London rooftop car park? Great work by WE HEART PICTURES PHOTOGRAPHY.
Couple Laura and Alex had a perfectly relaxed summer’s day wedding in Islington for their day in August. Starting at ISLINGTON TOWN HALL for their ceremony they then took some time out for some portraits in the nearby streets with their photographer GEN. We adore bride Laura’s peachy pink NEEDLE & THREAD wedding dress, and think Alex makes an equally dashing groom in his bespoke ALEXANDRA WOOD suit!
We love the capture of all the little looks during the ceremony and those of the couple with their little girl as a family, so cute! The little touches during the day from the tube themed tables to the mixed CD’s were lovely ways to personalise their restaurant reception, and I just have to mention that wedding cheese cake…it looks amazing and I imagine the guests enjoyed tucking into that!
You’ll have by now seen my post on some of my ‘hidden’ places in London to enjoy, and one of them being Greenwich, an area that I’m really fond of in London.
Steeped in history and nautical inspiration, one of the main attractions to Greenwich is the CUTTY SARK. A 19th century legendary British (tea) clipper ship, that recently underwent a huge restoration after a fire, and you may or may not realise but it’s actually an event space and a wedding venue!
This beautiful fine art nautical editorial shoot, inspired by painter Turner’s swirling skies and a touch of drama inspired by the novel Jamaica Inn, offers such gorgeous soft painterly inspiration with a wonderful historic backdrop. You almost wouldn’t believe it was London would you? I love how you can see the tall city skyscrapers in the distance, reminding you of the urban backdrop.
With a focus on the craft and history of the boat, the details tied together perfectly; handwritten notes, a tea station, the dining table with pastel flowers and patterned teacups, a delicate but stunning cake and of course the incredible dresses that got swept away by the breeze….
