Charlie & Lucy’s bubble-filled, colourful Chelsea wedding, with York Place Studios

Published by Claire Gould on

The most memorable weddings are those which are absolutely YOU. Charlie and Lucy’s personalities shine through the photos of their day: bursting with life and love, colourful and fun with a fabulous sense of humour. The happy pair chose Chelsea Physic Garden as their wedding venue, and top London wedding photographers York Place Studios to capture their day.

I get a real sense of excitement from these photos. There’s an authenticity that makes the moments feel closer, as though I’m there in the moment with every picture. I’ve said many times how much I love real documentary wedding photography for the atmosphere it brings to every shot. I can imagine these two leafing through their wedding album in twenty years time and being transported right back to the wedding day: it all feels so real!

Styling and decor wise, this wedding has everything: the floral dress is amaaaaazing – the colour palette used everywhere is incredible. The sleek jumpsuit teamed with that fabulous jacket is just perfect; both girls are stunning on the dance floor in their outfits. The colourful streamers on the table centres are really striking; and seeing all of this riot of colour through bubbles makes it even more beautiful!!

Chelsea Physic Garden is a truly beautiful spot for a wedding. It’s an exclusive use venue with quirks and treasures aplenty! There are secret pathways and stunning gardens for glorious photo opportunities – and it’s tucked away in a corner of Chelsea next to the Thames.

We’re head over heels in love with the joyful vibe of this wedding: from the colourful flowers to the thousands of bubbles, the rainbow brollies and the looks of love between Lucy and Charlie. It’s a belter of a wedding, a beauty of an occasion, and an absolute delight to share these photos with you! Loads more coming soon on our insta @englishweddingblog

Top tip: bubble guns + trigger happy mini people = JOY!!!
