A Foodie-inspired Modern Christmas Wedding

Meet Faye, a Senior Account Director to have an advertising agency, and Jimmy, a consultant to have an IT company, who celebrated their marriage around 22 December 2017. They held their ceremony within the elegant Art Deco surroundings of northeast London then a reception within the wonderful, old tram shed turned event space, lovingly full of reclaimed and recycled materials.

I've discussed quite several brides to date this year, and also have been consistently astounded by the contemporary cool of the designs. Faye chose her gown, using its amazing contrasting lace chevron design and low scoop back.

"I wanted an outfit with sleeves and I wanted something a little more modern that still felt timeless."

I love the asymmetric style of Faye's floral crown in shades of winter white with lovely greenery and timeless wax flowers. This and all sorts of lovely flowers during the day were created through the wonderfully named.

The bridesmaid dresses wore their very own choice of silver boots and shoes paired with deep blue wrap dresses.

"We wanted something easy and relaxed. Nothing stuffy or formal, we wanted everyone to possess fun and become themselves. I think probably the most important thing for all of us was that there were some personal touches, and (maybe most significantly) the food and wine were incredible. We are both self-proclaimed 'foodies' to ensure that was the bit we didn't wish to scrimp on."

After the ceremony everyone boarded a red vintage Routemaster double-decker bus for that journey to Clapton Country Club, enjoying shots of warming homemade sloe gin around the way!

The interiors from the country club are ultra cool and industrial but incredibly cozy and alluring too, with weathered pillars and brick and delightful wooden paneling and floorboards. The space was organized with long tables for feasting beneath festoon lights along with a twinkling Christmas tree.

"The food and wine were essential to use – we'd menus around the table, which detailed all of the canapes that were eaten along with the menu and drinks available, I loved having that there also it's an attractive memory to help keep."

As a competent cook, baker (and cheese lover), Faye handmade the marriage favors – little jars of tasty quince jam. There was a cheese and port pie 'cake' and Faye's mum made the marriage cake, incorporating the couple's favorite flavors in the tiers – carrot for Faye and chocolate for Jimmy.

"I loved preparing, I loved as soon as I held hands with Jimmy after I walked on the aisle before the ceremony started, I loved giggling with him whilst signing the registrar, I loved the speeches, I loved doing an address, I loved drinking little shots of sloe gin my Mum made around the vintage bus towards the venue, I LOVED the meals and I loved the sensation of being encompassed by everyone you like in life and understanding that everyone is there to possess fun and become lovely to every other."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Before you book or buy anything (i.e. several months before) follow all of the best photographers, bridal shops, florists, wedding planners, and stationery companies."

"Do this for several months and merely watch the things they post and also the different styles of things –I swear it's the very best way to obtain new ideas and exercise what you like/don't like."
