London Calling – Lindsey & Alex’s Quadrophenia Wedding

I’ve branded this the ‘Quadrophenia wedding’ because of all the fabulous retro British details. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside to be English doesn’t it?

The couple embarked in a lot of diy to make it all super personal and everything from the pub they held it in being called The Britannia to the pork pie ‘cake’; from the Vivienne Westwood shoes (a national treasure in my eyes!) to the red, white a blue throughout were put together to make their theme perfect. The bunting had a union jack vibe, the table plans were quintsentially British themed and the guests were even transported in a open top double decker routemaster red bus.

The day was rounded off by traditional English games including an egg and spoon race and a impromptu kick around with a rugby ball!

Thanks to Lindsey & Alex and their photographer Steve for sharing this fabulous day with us

  2. Wow Wow Wow I love, so elegant yet classy, simple but not indulgent, relaxed and friendly.

    This must have been a real treat, to have been a guest. I can just imagine the fun that was had by all.

    Thank you so much for sharing

  3. woohoo for all the UK weddings you are featuring recently Kat.
    Those banners are amazing, but I’m intrigued- what does it say?

  4. Hey – that’s my Britannia – well it’s nearby anyway and a great place for a wedding. The swings pics must have been from Victoria Park!

    Great photos too.

    I have to make the point that its not Quadrophenia – its a ‘british’ wedding, but if you have seen the film then you would know that it involves Scooters – our wedding next May will show you exactly what a Quadrophenia wedding will look like!!
