Steampunk, Wes Anderson & Woody Allen Wedding in Islington

Laura-Jane and Jack’s wedding was a combination of all the things they love such as steampunk, London, winter, Wes Anderson, Woody Allen and beer! They also encouraged their guests to dress up.

“All our guests commented on how personal the wedding was; informal and rather haphazard but it couldn’t have been any other way”, said Laura-Jane. “I think the most important thing to think about when planning your wedding is that it represents you and what you like rather than wanting to please everyone else and meet other people’s expectations.”

The ceremony was at Islington town hall. “We included our own words in the ceremony and the registrars were really lovely. It was all very relaxed despite being in such austere surroundings. We had a lot of guests from outside London and they really enjoyed the sightseeing tour on the Routemaster bus in between the ceremony and reception.”

London Rooftop Garden Party

Kia and Daniel’s July wedding took place at Dalston Roof Park in London, a quirky and cool events space in Hackney, overlooking the city’s skyscrapers. The day didn’t really have a theme other than having fun!

“Since we had both been married previously with all the traditional trappings, we went for something unique which reflected our personalities and interests”, explained the bride. “We wanted to be surrounded by the people we love, enjoying themselves with great food, a stunning view and dancing the night away.”

“We took a little bit of inspiration from some fantastic parties we had been to. We aimed to throw the best party and not think of it as just ‘our day’. Our friends and family are so important to us that they were the main focus for our day. We wanted to have all our friends mingling and break up the traditional ‘mine’ and ‘yours’ feeling that you get with a lot of weddings. This relaxed approach meant that we had friends old and new talking, eating and dancing together. The photo booth and free-flowing cocktails seemed to help that along nicely too!”

“We didn’t have a particular theme or inspiration”, said the bride, “we just chose things we liked and it came together on its own. We just focused on doing things the way we wanted them done without thinking too much about what we were *supposed* to do.”

Pick ‘n Mix London Pub Wedding

Stacey and Ian’s wedding was held in South London, where they live. “We live in Wandsworth, so we wanted our wedding to reflect our love for our lovely borough”, the bride said. “Admittedly, it isn’t as cool as Camden or as high brow as Chelsea, but it is sweet and friendly. We chose the grand chamber at Wandsworth Town Hall for our ceremony which was absolutely beautiful.”

“The reception was at The Antelope pub in Tooting. We loved how lovely it was yet it was just a simple London pub. We immediately fell in love with the laid back and effortless atmosphere and the food was delicious too. I’m surprised more couples don’t choose a pub for their reception as there is no hire fee (just a minimum spend) and they have a charm that only a London pub can deliver.”

Imogen and Jordan were married on 31st October in London. The wedding was inspired by art deco, Autumn and, of course, Halloween! However they didn’t want their day to be too themed, so they went for subtle touches such as glittery pumpkins and the bridesmaids wearing black lace masks for the ceremony.

“I’m a huge vintage and an art deco enthusiast and I absolutely love glitter”, said the bride. “At the end of the day all the staff were covered in glitter head to toe. We first met on Halloween, at a party when we were at school. so we wanted to be married on the exact same day. I took inspiration from Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby too as we really love the style of that film and how beautiful everything looked.”

Rustic Bohemian Wedding in London

Ben and Lori’s London wedding was held in a coffee shop. They had a laid back, bohemian theme that worked really well with their urban location.

“I suppose the most unique part of our wedding, that sets us apart from most weddings we have been to, is that we did not have the same sense of formality”, explained the bride. There were no bridesmaids, or groomsmen for example. We didn’t feel attached to those traditions. Also, we Skyped in some of my family members and closest friends from Canada, so it was a little funny seeing an iPad in the corner of our eye with six tiny squares of my favourite people from overseas, smiling and crying from a screen.”

“I would say our theme was confused rustic bohemian. The best bit of the day, and the part that still gives me the most exciting rush of emotions, is our ceremony. Our venue had stairs that led from a loft down to the main area where we had set up our ceremony area. Before most people arrived, close friends all worked together to decorate; hanging the ribbon backdrop, laying out confetti bags, and clearing the area. It was a bit rushed, but so lovely for everyone to work together like that. Ben worked some magic on the music and used the instrumental from LCD Soundsystem’s Dance Yourself Clean for us to walk down the stairs together to and it was absolutely wonderful. I love that we walked together. For us, it was important to show the unity between us before we were married, as well as the further commitment we made on that day.”
