A Modern London Wedding in the Institute of Contemporary Arts
Sophie, who works in sales administration, and Nick, a TV post-producer, were married on 1 September 2018 close to The Mall and St. James' Park.
Sophie looked cool and stylish in her minimalist, backless dress, which she discovered at an East London boutique.
"I tried on over 40 prom dresses during my search for 'The One' and I was beginning to feel like I was never going to think it is, however, the moment I put around the 'Georgie' dress, I knew I'd found knew my dress. It had everything I wanted – fitted, understated, and more importantly, completely backless."
I adore Nick's fantastic suit within the most incredibly rich, aubergine color, that they wore having a colorful peacock green bow tie, along with a matching pocket square.
"Nick and I met at university in 2008 –he visited Kingston and I visited Roehampton but would hang out with the same number of friends. After three years of seeing one another here and there, it took me booking a ticket to Australia after my final exams for all of us to admit just how much we meant to one another and that people were virtually in a relationship!"
"Our venue was the wonderful Institute of Contemporary Arts in Central London. As soon as we had those stunning columns and views on the balcony, we knew it was our venue."
The bridesmaids wore stylish black dresses (another design for every one of them) together with sandals.
"I always wanted these phones to choose a dress that suited their style and body shapes."
Nick proposed to Sophie in Bali in September 2016, although his original plan was somewhat thwarted by other travelers!
"He was built with a grand plan of walking out from the sea holding a shell using the ring he would propose with, however, if a couple chose to sit right alongside our patch around the very empty beach, Nick was built with a change of plan and did it within the privacy in our gorgeous little villa instead."
"We were both crying with happiness –it's made Bali a really special place for all of us. We were built with a two-year engagement. We always knew we wanted a September wedding as that month is extremely significant to us. It was the month that people met and eventually became the official couple, after which got engaged those years later. Plus September by Earth Wind and Fire is 'our song'."
"My favorite bit of the wedding was the neon sign! This was the very first thing I hired for the marriage and the inspiration behind my pink flowers. The ICA includes a big, wonderful fireplace within the room that might be used for our wedding breakfast and dancing in the evening, and after visiting a Bag and Bones neon sign featured on the wedding blog previously, I knew this is the perfect thing to hang above it. It looked amazing in the evening time from the disco lighting!"
"Our first dance ended up being to Al Green, Let's Stay Together, among my all-time favorite songs. This merged into September by Earth, Wind, and Fire, which our guests went crazy for –everyone knows it is 'our song', and also the atmosphere was amazing! A moment I'll always remember.”
