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.
Favourite moment of the day…
The confetti throw was one of my favourites ever. It was a little breeze so it was just so much fun.
Katie & Alex…
Tell us how you met and got engaged…
Met at Bestival in 2010, Alex trod on my foot! Relaxed engagement at home, Alex made breakfast in bed with bubbles and popped the question! It was exactly one week after giving birth to daughter Heidi.
