Whimsical London Warehouse Wedding

Leave it to Jodie Chapman to send us one of coolest, chicest weddings that’s ever graced our pages. Held at London’s MC Motors/Castle Gibson warehouse, this gorgeous duo opted for an affair that spoke perfectly to their whimsical, vintage-loving style. Mark my words - this English “I do” has just set the bar for quirky weddings everywhere.

From Jodie Chapman Sonali and Richard’s wedding took place at the coolest venue in London. MC Motors/Castle Gibson is a warehouse that is usually rented out for television/film productions, fashion shoots, and the occasional wedding. With the front of the building having the old-fashioned cinema style board, the wedding took on a little bit of a film theme, with guests collecting cinema tickets to tell them where they were seated, and images of Brando, Clark Gable and Grace Kelly adorning the venue.

Sonali got ready at their mews home in East London before heading to the church where she married her love. They then went on to MC Motors, where guests enjoyed drinks to the sound of the Basin St Brawlers jazz band and took pictures in the photo booth. After a vegetarian Gujarati feast, they partied the night away.

“Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” DIY

You can’t help but love a crafty bride-to-be, especially one as creative (+ sweet) as this lovely lady. Because when it came time to ask her nearest and dearest to stand beside her on her Big Day, the oh-so-talented Rebecca D’Amato did so in a glittery, gold and fabulous way.  Think Christmas Crackers, beautiful calligraphy from Shannon Kirsten, yummy treats from Charbonnel Et Walker and fun-filled confetti.  See it all captured by Aneta Mak in the full gallery.

From Rebecca D’AmatoMy fiancé and I moved to London last September during our engagement. After living here a few months we decided to plan our wedding here. Knowing that we are getting married as a destination wedding, I feel like everything we do, I want to make a little extra special for everyone. We chose to have a small bridal party, so I felt even more so I wanted to do something special. I wanted to do something pretty and “British” to ask my bridesmaids to be a part of our big day, so I thought of the fun Christmas Cracker tradition. Christmas Crackers are filled with trinkets and goodies and are such a fun treat! I had custom watercolor scrolls made for them, bought gold London key chains, I made my own confetti, bought my favorite British truffles (Pink Champagne! Charbonnel et Walker! Yum!), added a LONDON print that they could add to their desk to get them excited for the wedding. Everything was created in our wedding colors: pink & gold.

When my bridesmaids received them, they were ecstatic. It wasn’t something elaborate, but so pretty and sweet and special. Christmas crackers look really difficult, but truly you can buy the kits online and add some pretty goodies and ribbon, and voila, a fun surprise!

My dog, Sir Oliver, couldn’t help but be interested in the project, as well!

London Garden Bridal Shoot

The idea of anything in an English garden automatically gets me giddy. So when amazing vendors like Perfect EventsKristyn Harder Photography and Wild About team up to create a inspiration shoot in one such locale, it sort of feels like I hit the wedding jackpot. With no detail left unnoticed and pink + gold accents around every corner, this is one gorgeous gallery you just mustn’t miss.

From Nicole of Perfect Events…. I’m so delighted to share with you this utterly amazing bridal styled shoot full of stunning details for you to swoon over. The shoot is the result of an international team of outstanding vendors, Canadian Kristyn Harder Photography, bridal wear by Italian bridal couturier Federica Bruno Couture and the talents of London’s wedding industry finest – Perfect Events, Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium, Freya Rose, Wild About and more.

Held outdoors in the magical setting of Regent’s Gardens nestled in the middle of renowned London’s Regent’s Park, a Royal Park, the only one of the eight Royal Parks where you can get married. A truly beautiful and historic parkland, a quintessential English setting, what makes it even more special is the fact that it’s a rare tranquillity in Central London with 11 acres of private grounds, stunning scenery, beautiful lawns, a Secret Garden which we used for most of the shots, in particular secluded shots of our model bride and groom – a real couple Blake and Emily. You could be a millions miles away from London yet right in the heart of the city. There truly is no other venue like it in Central London, oh and did I mention location has the Royal seal of approval.

A gorgeous dessert table with metallic gold Chevron detailed wedding cake complete with exquisite sugar flowers, pearl covered cake pops, ornately decorated cupcakes some of which we suspended above the dessert table, along with paper pom poms and garlands, crystal glassware filled with delightful treats and elegant cream leaves table linen all encased by lush gardens and a pretty pond.

A pretty palette of blush pink and gold, a wedding table set under a historic tree, from the branch hangs a unique ivory chandelier overlooking vintage styled plates, metalic gold detailed stationery, white dessert dunes table linen, crystal vase with beautiful blooms, Gold Chiavari chairs dressed with ivory tulle tied elegantly to one side and silk handmade flowers.

A pergola beautifully decorated with fabulous flowers, accented by curtains of crystal beaded garlands and hanging candelabras formed the perfect backdrop for the couple and the most impressive Marie Antoinette inspired wedding cake.

We created a day look for the model, consisting of an ivory satin skirt, wonderfully textured bodice, in vogue delicate lace bridal cape which fell gracefully to one side, heavenly shoes, flawlessly natural, soft makeup – pink lips, on the eyes soft gold/peachy, fluttery, feathery lashes and the cool named eye shadow ‘Expensive Pink’ by MAC, stylish hair, gem encrusted hair accessory. And for the evening the model bride adorned a gorgeous fitted gown with lace bodice and ruffled skirt and exquisite metallic gold floral hair jewellery, subtle changes to the makeup – slightly darkened smokey eye lids whilst keeping the pretty pink lips.

And for a touch of fun giant ballons, photo booth style car and humorous props galore. A table plan of gold layed curves created the frame to a ladder of guest names.

Every single detail is truly amazing, you can seriously muse until your heart’s content – simply awe inspiring, exceptional, captivating and out of this world!
