Stylish London Wedding: Daf & Victoria

LONDON STYLISH ALTERNATIVE, BRUNSWICK HOUSE- JOANNA BROWN-182

Daf and Victoria’s wedding was a double celebration. After a long time trying, Victoria finally got pregnant through IVF and so she was four month’s gone for the big day. They were married on 13th April, the groom’s birthday! Victoria explains, “Our wedding had been on hold while we went through a tedious long IVF process but we got to Christmas and decided we were so fed up of waiting and needed something to look forward to so decided to quickly plan it for four months later. We then had success with the IVF so I got to walk up the aisle four months pregnant! It’s been an amazing year all round!”

Victoria looked radiant in an Alexander McQueen dress, vintage Manolo Blahnik shoes and a Jenny Packham headpiece and jewellery.

“We really wanted a unique wedding venue that suited us and our friends for a great party and celebration”, she continued. “Brunswick House was our local Sunday brunch spot and the house, owned by Lassco reclamation, is one of our favourite places stuffed full of strange and quirky antiquities. We loved the informality of the house and how that influenced the atmosphere of the whole wedding. People were sat among all the wonderful antique furniture and stuffed animals, dinner was laid up on four huge long tables and was large sharing plates of wild sea trout and new potatoes to start, followed by rare Welsh lamb. Dessert was served upstairs – glasses of rhubarb syllabub and apple snow during the speeches.”

“For the flowers we wanted a vintage feel to suit the venue so went for mercury glass planters and tea light holders grouped together and planted up with tiny lily of the valley, as well as a mixture of cut anemones, roses, peonies. We also bought loads of tiny rose plants which we wrapped in blush coloured tulle and dotted around the house and guests took home afterwards. The magnificent fireplaces which all had log fires going due to the vile weather, had very woody looking arrangements of magnolia with the vintage garden roses woven into, to give that rambling overgrown look, again to suit the feel of the venue.”
