Catherine and Jeremy’s London wedding took place at Chelsea Old Church and guests were then transported to Lord’s cricket ground by a fleet of traditional red buses. As a London wedding planner, I loved creating this wedding – we started with a palette of fresh green and ivory – simple but oh so stylish.
Catherine chose a bespoke Sassi Holford gown; exquisite hand beaded silk and a birdcage veil to complete her modern day bridal look. Mel Kinsman was on hand to work her magic – one of my most trusted colleagues who never fails to create a beautiful, timeless look on her brides.
Marianne and her team from Sweet Pea Flowers created all the arrangements for the wedding – I love working with Marianne on London weddings and those further afield; she has an ability to immediately interpret the brief perfectly and this was no exception. Working with our ivory and green palette she created a simple bouquet of cala lilies which enhanced the clean lines of Catherine’s gown and for the reception tall arrangements of the lilies, ivory and lime green hydrangea, roses and lots of foliage made an elegant addition to the tables.
Lord’s is an incredible venue, so it was very special to be able to create a wedding in this space. Canapes and champagne were served in the Pavillion Terrace, overlooking the ground itself. This was a lovely intimate space and perfect for entertaining the guests who had travelled from all corners of the world to be preset. Guests mingled and listened to the sounds of a string quartet, before making their way to the Long Room for the wedding breakfast prepared by the talented chefs at Lord’s.
The Long Room itself is so iconic – filled with the world’s finest collection of cricket art and with the most amazing views over the hallowed turf we stayed with our simple decor and let the setting speak for itself. Crisp white linen, stylish calligraphy and crystal glassware completed the tall floral arrangements and tables were named after the Channel Islands where the couple were moving to after their marriage.
Peggy Porschen created the most delicious and pretty combination of her mini cakes to complement the colour scheme which were served as dessert. Featuring delicate stripes, pastel green silk ribbons and the most fragile of sugar flowers they worked perfectly alongside the colour and grandeur of the room itself.
This was a super stylish, elegant wedding and was captured perfectly by Mason Photography. Catherine and Jeremy were the most lovely couple to work with and it was a pleasure to create a beautiful London wedding for them.
