Evelynne and Evan were married in Kings Cross St Pancras station. A weird place for a ceremony you might think, but it meant a lot to them as a couple. “With me being from Brazil and Evan being from America, travel is very much a recurring theme in our lives”, wrote Evelynne . “We decided to get married at St Pancras Station as it is just a stunning building and we wanted the place to speak for itself without too many props.”
“We decided to take on the traveller theme, Evan did train tickets for our invitations, a seating chart that looked like a departures and arrivals board and everything just fell into place — not to mention the huge image of a train on the back wall of
6 St Chad’s Place where we had our reception.”
“Our wedding was inspired by our love for each other”, she continued. “We just wanted everything to be simple and uncomplicated. We love life, food, music and beautiful things. We just wanted that to be the most amazing day of our lives, so we planned everything in a way that would make that happen. We decided to make everything our way, so we didn’t stick to traditions or rules. We wrote our own ceremony, we wanted everything to be informal and simple. We were surrounded by people we loved, it was perfect.”

The wedding eventually became about all of the things we love from the 1950s to the 1990s! I wanted our wedding to be really unpretentious and for everyone to have lots of fun."

A Great Gatsby & Peacock Themed Wedding at Nonsuch Mansion: Chloe & Michael
July 25, 2012
The first thing Chloe & Michael decided upon for their wedding was the venue. They picked Nonsuch Mansion, in the heart of Nonsuch Park, as it held great sentimental meaning to them. They'd spent a lot of time there thoughout their relationship and so having the wedding there made total sense. "The mansion is built on the site of Henry VIII’s long gone Nonsuch Palace and is located in the middle of a huge park that we live within a few minutes walk of," Chloe explained. "The park is very important to us and we spend lots of time in there, running, walking, picking berries, lazing in the sun with a beer etc when the seasons are right! In fact, it was lazing in the shade of a tree just by the mansion on a sunny afternoon when we first said 'I love you' - so it’s a pretty special place. Choosing the venue really was a no-brainer for us!"
A Retro Americana Wedding: Ralph & Carly
August 22, 2012
Ralph & Carly love all things Americana and retro and so the theme for their wedding was easy to decide on. They wanted to incorporate the feeling of driving through America in an open top car - something they love to do in real life. Ralph had even proposed on a road trip through Arizona, one of their favourite places in the USA. "We love Americana and we feel that there is a big difference between what is retro and what is vintage", Carly explained. "We wanted our wedding to be all things that we love. We love nothing more than booking a flight and a car in the US and then exploring, although sometimes we end up in very peculiar places and cannot wait for daylight to arrive so that we can head out! For the most part though it's the way that we have discovered some of our favourite places. Each table was named after a hotel or motel that we have stayed in on our trips, there have been many others but these had the coolest signs."
