Believe it or not, even before the big royal wedding (yes, we’re officially celebrating the one year anniversary today) London has been home to many weddings. So if you aren’t living in the UK, and want to create your own royal inspired day then I would suggest you start planning, pack your bags and book your venue. London here we come…
Aside from the royalty, the history, and now the Olympics, London in it’s own right is a destination. So why not make it yours… for the wedding of course! Now because most likely you aren’t Kate Middleton, I’ve toned down these London wedding picks a bit (think an unnamed church, not Westminster… and a more subdued reception venue.. as opposed to Buckingham Palace of course). But even with your more down to earth version of a London celebration, there is plenty to choose from to make it perfect!
To start, you must of course delve into London’s world of high fashion with your bridal gown pick. My favorite? This Temperley London “Grace” gown (below)! As for the rest of the wedding fashion, red seems like the perfect regal color for the bridesmaids, and of course a headpiece is a must. And for the basics? A simple church like Christ Church in Spitalfields (below), and a classic venue (the Carlton Club or the William Kent House, also below, both fit the bill). Finally, make sure to add touches that remind you and your guests that you’re in London… like picking London-specific photo opportunities, and dazzling guests with fun save the dates and invitations… Cheers!
