The Urban, Stylish Shoreditch Wedding of Shan + Rob

A Stylish City Wedding…

Today we share with you a cracking London Wedding captured by Parrot + Pineapple Wedding Photography.

Shan + Rob tied the knot at in Camden and afterwards took a boat ride down to their reception venue Shoreditch Platform. It was all about simplicity, family, friends and music… partying till the early hours!

This wedding oozes chic style and I love the use of Gold in the little details- just check out those Zara bridesmaid dresses! Big love for them!

Why you love this wedding…

Shan and Rob wanted to have a really fun wedding that was all about having a great time with the people they loved the most. They weren’t afraid to just go with whatever they wanted as a couple for their wedding day. Equality is important to both of them and they broke a lot of traditions and got creative with what felt right for them. Shan walked down the aisle by herself, gave a speech and invited her Maid of Honour and mum to give a speech at the reception.

Favourite details of the day…

The personalised cocktails served at the party – Pussyriot (named after the couple’s cat, gin and elderflower based) and School Night (a nod to Shan being a teacher, non alcoholic and very refreshing).
