Xanthe Rowland Weddings

Mandi and Joeby fought tooth and nail to make their 2020 wedding happen. “We were determined to stick to our date no matter what,” Mandi told us. “We decided quite early on that even if it just meant us and a witness, we would just get it done - I’d proposed to Joey in 2018 and for us it was important to just be married, not about a big party or putting our lives on hold - and this sentiment felt particularly important to stick to before the world went to complete shit!”

Party Like it’s a Pandemic: A Low-Key London Wedding

Kat

Holly Rose

February 3, 2021

Unintentionally, Vicky and Jake's September became vintage London themed because they wanted to show off the city that they love. They chose Chelsea Old Town Hall as both their ceremony and reception venue, booked a vintage double decker red bus and planned their photos around some of the most iconic tourist attractions. Décor and theme wise they did keep things pretty simple, choosing simple DIY floral arrangements that let the venue be the star of the show.

Lexi and Tom chose Islington Town Hall and Green Rooms, a local bar/ hotel, as the locations for their November 2021 wedding. It was important to them both that the day was as stress-free and fun as possible so they decided to ignore the traditional timeline and do an evening-only wedding with their ceremony at 5pm. They got ready together at home with their mates, wore coordinating pink outfits and matching Adidas sneakers, walked down the aisle to KC & Jojo and had a reading from Fleabag.

Gemma and Jon chose St Pancras Station as their unusual wedding location and were married at the exact spot where they first met for their first date! They were married on the concourse with the trains behind them, and had their reception at Searcys Champagne Bar. They were inspired by the art deco vibes of the location, but also their love of Bowie through their choice of music, and the bride's accessories (Bowie is also their son's name!)

Red, White & Blue DIY Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf

Jackson & Co

June 15, 2020

Trinity Buoy Wharf has one of the best views in London which suited Rebecca and Dave's red, white and blue themed wedding to a tee. The couple didn't want the day to be too 'matchy-matchy', but they did was cohesive elements to run throughout. The bride wore a stunning red Pronovias dress (from their evening gown range, so less than a quarter of the price of their wedding gowns!), the bridesmaid wore white and Dave and his groomsmen were in blue suits.

Fun London Wedding with Neon, Gin and a Pie & Mash Lunch!

The main priority for Chris and Nat’s September wedding day was for them to host a really fun party that had little nods to all the things that they both love. They were also really keen to keep things local; part logistics for all their guests, and part because after many years of travelling around, they’ve finally put down roots in London so it seemed like an excellent idea to celebrate the city that they hold so dear.

Tattoo Artists’ Intimate Hackney Wedding with Group Photos Done in a Photo Booth!

February 28, 2020

There's a hybrid wedding trend we're seeing a lot these days - not quite an elopement, but definitely not a big wedding either. Jay and Brian knew this was what they wanted for their nuptials. They didn't want to entirely run away and do it on their own, but they didn't want to host a ton of people and drop a huge amount of money on it either. So, they found a comfortable mid-way point and married at Hackney Town Hall, followed by a meal at a local restaurant with just 14 guests (and their sausage dog, Duncan!)
