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.”
