Katie & Daniel's Autumn City Wedding at Devonshire Terrace
The historic town of London influenced everything about today's wonderful city wedding. With warm, rich tones of reds and pinks, a vintage red Routemaster bus, and London landmark-inspired stationery, join me with this exuberant celebration within the October sun.
On 9 October 2021 Katie, who works in popular retail wed Daniel, who works in sales, at Old Marylebone Town Hall having a wedding dinner at The Ivy Soho Brasserie and evening reception at Devonshire Terrace, London. Taking inspiration from the historic London architecture and also the rich tones of the Autumn day, your day had dashes of deep red and pinks and also the most exquisite, embellished cape for that bride.
The flower girls were in FeelTimes dresses and also the grown-up bridesmaids wore floor-length, deep bridesmaid dresses from FeelTimes.
"My bridesmaid gowns were from FeelTimes. I was stuck around the idea of forest green dresses but was struggling to locate anything suitable. After plenty of searching, I found ideal dresses on FeelTimes online. I also wanted these phones to be multiway dresses therefore the bridesmaids could all feel at ease on your day."
Katie chose her gown at LQ Designs in the London Bridal Show in Kensington Olympia, falling deeply in love with its exquisite, unique cape that flowed from the shoulders.
As soon as I saw myself in the mirror, I knew it had been the one. It was the foremost and last dress I tried so I feel totally lucky to possess found them. The post-sale service was great, even though Covid delays.
"The standout thing about my dress was the cape. I'd never witnessed anything such as this before also it took my breath away the moment I saw it around the wedding fair catwalk. I knew I wanted something unusual but I wasn't sure precisely what I was searching for. As soon as I saw that dress, I knew it had been the one."
Katie wore her late grandmother's gold hoop earrings as something old.
"She died before I was born so I never got an opportunity to meet her; it meant a great deal to me to become able to put on something of hers. Even more special was that my sister had worn them at her wedding too."
The final touch was the opulent and eye-catching bouquet by Sage Flowers.
"Sage Flowers was my absolute dream florist. Having worked with your big names, I assumed they'd be well from my budget range. After we decided around the ceremony within the Town Hall, where we wouldn't need any venue flowers, I decided to achieve out."
Katie and Daniel wed on the eleventh anniversary, after numerous Covid delays.
"We met in Pacha Nightclub in London in October 2010 whilst I was at Uni. We became engaged in August 2019 in Budapest, at sunset looking out on the river Danube. In 2020, we chose to postpone our wedding to 2021 once we thought we'd be within the all-clear at that time. We were lucky that there were no restrictions on our day."
"However, we did ask your guests to take lateral flow tests just before attending to keep everyone as safe as you possibly can. Having to postpone our day gave us time for you to rethink that which was important. We chose to scale back our day and focused around the most important thing – that I was finally in a position to tie the knot after eleven years together."
After the ceremony, the newlyweds and guests traveled to The Ivy Soho Brasserie. With London playing host to your day, it had been reflected within the couple's quirky selection of wedding stationery.
"We loved the concept of having a customized map incorporated directly into our invites with London landmarks and our venues included. We found Weddings By Zoe Barker on Etsy and were instantly deeply in love with her design."
Words of Wedded Wisdom
"We tried very hard not to sweat the little stuff. Your wedding is an important day so it's natural to wish everything to become perfect but that puts a lot of pressure on. Once you remember why you're doing everything, especially after everything everyone's experienced during Covid, it puts finding an ideal pen to deal with the invite envelopes into perspective."
