Ever so sorry about the recent quietness. All sorts of things have been happening such as overseas visitors, and unfortunate illnesses, so it’s been a week of up and downs. Trying to get back on the horse now, starting with Amanda and Mike’s cool Soho wedding, which is way overdue to be blogged.
First of all, I can’t tell you how excited I was when I found out that Amanda was getting ready at the Dean Street Townhouse, which has got to be one of the most beautiful places to stay (or eat) in London. Amanda looked stunning in her Caroline Castigliano gown, and Mike very dapper in one of the coolest suits I’ve ever seen (skulls & crossbones lining, hello?) by a funky tailor in Brighton called Gresham Blake.
The ceremony of Amanda & Mike’s wedding took place in the Purple Room of Old Marylebone Townhall, which is starting to get quite familiar to us! The Townhall is definitely becoming one of my favourite places for ceremonies in London, not least because the staff there are always so lovely. From the Townhall guests (and Susanna) got on a London routemaster, which ferried them to the reception venue, Century Club, while Amanda, Mike and I strolled the streets of Soho for some portraits before rejoining the party.
There were lots of delicious details to take in at the reception, not least the gorgeous cupcakes from Mrs Marengos, but if there was one experience I would take away from this wedding to treasure forever, it would have to be the absolutely gobsmackingly gorgeous roof terrace at Century Club, where the evening reception took place. I think it’s hard to beat a first dance under an open sky on a rooftop in the middle of London. Just, wow.
Thank you so much Amanda & Mike for having us share your wedding day with you, it was so full of love and laughter and I wish you’ll have plenty more of that to come in your future together!
