Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We met in the glamorous world of Local Authority and were friends (completely innocently) for 4 years. Jody even interviewed me for a job once! Then the stars aligned 3 years ago and we were both single at the same time… the rest is history!

Jody asked me to marry him the day before our 2 year anniversary. It was in our garden and very intimate and personal to us (including the use of the model of a mythical woodland creature that we had seen in a shop in Hackney on one of our many walks on the canal). Jody isn’t very good at being patient so we were only engaged 6 months before the big day.

The ceremony – it meant the world!

We wanted a small and intimate wedding with just our families there. It was also very important to us that the wedding was local to us and everything

Why you love this wedding…

There is so much to love about Katie And Alex’s wedding! Battersea Arts Centre is such a stunning venue filled with grand spaces and quirky nooks, and Katie’s vision for it’s styling on the day was amazing. I love that she stayed true to her personality and shunned a traditional cream dress in favour for the scarlet red one.

Favourite details of the day…

Of course, there is Katie’s Scarlet red dress but for me the gorgeous flowers by Elie Lyon were my favourite detail, the mix of deep reds, succulents and chocolate cosmos we’re just perfect.

I really enjoyed working with Maybo and Himesh throughout their planning process, as I got to know them and understand what they were after and create something that didn’t only reflect the style of the Chainstore, but also represented both Maybo and Himesh and their style.  We wanted to work with both cultures and create something colourful and unique, but also be able to work together so it didn’t clash or disrupt the main feel of the day. 

To us the main part of a wedding is the atmosphere and creating something that invites guests to enjoy themselves and relax is very important.  For this we used great mood lighting, music and a design that created a beautiful atmosphere, which all gelled together!

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We are one of those rare (not) modern couples who met… online, Tinder to be specific. We went to a cocktail bar and ended up in Camden (the mecca for alternative dates). We got engaged at Disneyland Paris.

How would you describe your wedding theme/ decoration?

Disco love themed kids party.

What were your favourite details?

The personalised vows which had a shout out to Pearl Jam and a reference to Parks and Recreation. The mariachi band playing as guests arrived, pick and mix in buckets and spades.

Was your favourite part of the day?

There was a point we had made our vows, our speech, our first dance and everyone was getting a bit wasted. We looked around and nearly everyone was dancing, there were groups of people who had never met but were all shaking their booties on the dance floor together and that was our fave.

How was your day unique?

We decided to only keep

Why you love this wedding…

Lucy & Jules’ wedding is the perfect and refreshing example of how to combine glamour with traditional and original details, plus a good helping of rock n roll and a massive party!

They have confidently combined a range of elements that we don’t usually see at the same event – a heavily tattooed wedding party, a stunning (Grace Loves) lace dress, festival flags, rose gold cutlery, whimsical ribbon backdrop, rock bands, fairy lights, formal dining, a land rover and a motorbike, beautiful florals, original (and funny) signage, a stunning coastal setting with a very bohemian wedding party!

Nothing about this combination feels like a Pinterest regurgitation. It’s the epitome of confident and original planning and styling.
