Relaxed & Guest-Focused ‘Wedstival’ Wedding in Dalston Heights

Louise and Mark’s wedding was cool and relaxed with a London vibe. They didn’t want it to be too formal, but also didn’t want to lose the feeling that it was a wedding and not just a party. Their wedding was held at Dalston Heights, a venue of two large, empty, inter-connecting rooms, meaning they we were able to transform the space into exactly what they wanted.

“The venue was our biggest expense but was the centrepiece of our day,” explained Mark, “and it gave us the room to create what we wanted. It was expensive because it was sought after, but we could immediately see why. The best thing about planning our wedding was knowing that the day would be exactly how we wanted it, and knowing we were going to be giving our guests an amazing time.”

“This was especially important to me,” continued Louise, “everyone goes on about it being YOUR day but I felt confident Mark and I would enjoy the day no matter what. However, I really did want our friends and family to have an incredible time, with delicious food, lots to drink and great music to dance to.”

Mark’s favourite part of the wedding was seeing Louise for the very first time in her dress, while Louise’s was the speeches, “My dad’s and the best man’s speeches were both really special. I was conscious I didn’t want the day to be too formal or stuffy so we’d spoken about whether or not we should even have speeches on the day, but I’m so glad that we did. I think as the bride these are the rare moments you might dread wondering what might be said, but they were both so warm and funny, it really made my day.”
