A Colourful London Wedding…
Happy Friday all!
What a treat we have for you today as we share with you the colourful London wedding of Lucy & Mike. They decided to hold their reception in a central London pub called The Eastern and filled it with homemade decor including tons of brightly coloured pompoms. Thanks to Lucy, Mike and Mr & Mrs Unique supplier Babb Photo for sharing this awesome day with us.
Over to them to tell us more…
Lucy & Mike…
How was your day unique?
We always liked the idea of a London pub wedding. We live here; it’s home and it felt easy for our two families as it was in the middle of them both!
We looked around a couple of pubs for the reception, but The Easton was something else – lovely food, nice atmosphere, a really good big room and somewhere that we could decorate. Asia House was where we had our ceremony. It’s an amazing Georgian townhouse; we walked in and just thought wow! It was a really lovely place to get married, and the ceremony room felt very special to us.
What were your favourite details?
A while ago I made a pompom garland for our fireplace, and thinking how pretty it looked, I decided that it would be a great idea to make some pompoms for the venue. I started off with small pompoms and then Mike very sensibly pointed out that we might need to make some bigger ones given the size of the pub! We ended up making about 500 pompoms, which was about 24 metres worth! We were making them for months, but I really thought that the end result was worth it.
What was it like working with your photographer?
Laura and Pete have been great to work with. We had seen their work up close in the past as Laura had photographed our friends’ wedding a couple of years ago and the pictures were just lovely, so we were keen to work with them for our wedding as well. They were both so friendly and made everything really easy both in the run up to the day and on the day itself.
Advice to any couples about to get married?
Have a strong idea of the sort of wedding you want to have, and stick to it, even if it doesn’t match other peoples’ expectations. That said; don’t be afraid to let others help. There’s a lot to organise, and you can’t pull it off all by yourselves, particularly on the day itself.
