Today I’ve the pleasure of publishing our first real wedding feature by sponsor Frances Carlisle…and it’s purdy!!! Tim and Polly’s wedding is the epitome of a personally styled celebration. With their friends and beloved hometown at the very heart of their plans it exudes love and happiness…and happens to be tres stylish too. There’s just something so warm yet edgy about the characterful east end of London. Here’s what bride Polly had to say about their day:
We wanted a relaxed London wedding that would not require most of our family & friends, especially those who have young children like we do, to travel far; without the formalities and expense of a hotel or restaurant venue. We were lucky to find a large space close to home where we could do exactly as we wished! We made great effort to ‘shop local’ with all of our chosen suppliers.
The reception venue (totes amaze!), pops of colour, bouquet, Vietnamese banquet, neon lights…adore!
Amazing work Frances and congratulations Tim & Polly, what a gorgeous celebration – a real love letter to your corner of London.
