Published by Claire Gould on

A wonderfully personal, brilliantly creative wedding with all the elegance in the world – today’s blog is a beauty! Gorgeous couple Tiff and Az were married in London on Valentine’s Day. Their outfits were both bespoke and hand made, and every little detail of this day is full of love, from the flowers in Tiff’s bouquet to the story behind the bronze rabbit ring bearer! There’s also the most incredible waistcoat you ever did see…

The images are sublime: Dorset wedding photographer Nathan from Libra Photographic joined the happy pair and caught all the loveliest moments of their day. As a wedding photographer himself, Az chose very carefully who would capture their day. Their love shines from the pictures, as do the personalities of this fabulous couple. Az & Tiff – we wish you the happiest married life in the world!

Wedding photographer review

As a wedding photographer myself, it was so important for me, and my now wife to feel comfortable on our wedding day. Photographing another photographer’s wedding can be daunting, but Nathan took it all in his stride. He captured the day beautifully, with a strong combination of reportage and posed images, and his creativity shone through. Nathan listened to exactly what were were looking for, and he exceeded our expectations on the day. More importantly, we all enjoyed his company on the day.

Your best moment or memory

Coming out of the ceremony venue to our guests and seeing the confetti all across the Kings Road.

Tell us anything you did differently – we love hearing about NEW traditions (or none at all!)

Both our outfits were handmade for us, and included a very special waistcoat lining with photographs of our time together over the years.

Venue name + review

Kensington and Chelsea Old Town Hall Historic London wedding venue, with wonderful staffing that made us feel very comfortable on the day.

After photographs in and around Chelsea, we headed to the The Hollywood Arms for lunch.

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

Tiff wore a classic knee length 60s style dress in an ivory heavy queen satin, which featured a simple pleat on the back. Worn with ballet pumps and an elegant handmade birdcage by the the dressmaker.
Over her dress Tiff wore a classic style, pre loved, camel coloured ankle length coat, purchased in East Wittering before the dress was made – it was perfect for our February wedding.

As chose a three piece forest green velvet suit, white, shirt, knitted mustard tie and tan swede brogues.

Accessories included a brass hare pin on the lapel, a pocket watch borrowed from a friend, and a pocket square bought for me by Tiff 10 years ago from Suit Supply.

Dress or suit shop name + review

Peridot Bridal

From initial discussions via email I instantly knew Megan was the person to make my wedding dress. Megan listened to my ideas and provided a detailed, professional and unique service.

Megan made the most beautiful dress which was just how I envisioned. She guided me with samples, ideas, and made a bird cage to compliment my dress which completed my look.

My dress was classic, classy and felt like a dream to where. From the start to the finish the whole experience was exceptional.

Az’s suit was made by Anthony Formal Wear in Essex.

The ceremony

Tiff’s daughter Meg walked her down the aisle. During the ceremony the rings (see below) were carried to the front by Tiff’s younger daughter Rosie on the ears of a bronze rabbit. “This was bought for me by Tiff as a gift in Glastonbury on an early date 12 years ago. I also proposed to Tiff at Glastonbury Tor last year.”

Witnesses were Gabe & Mitch the girls’ partners. The engagement ring, earrings, and wedding bands were handmade for us by South Jewellery in Cornwall. We married on valentines day, as this was also the date of our very first date 13 years ago.

Florist name + review

Buds Floristry Anna White

I immediately hit it off with Anna. We spoke about incorporating the colours of the famous Chelsea Town Halls garland that drapes the famous blue doors.

Anna created a stunning February bouquet and added pussy willow at my request.

The colourful, classy bouquet was the perfect accessory to my dress. Anna took her time to explain the meaning of the beautiful dusky pink rose and the scent was beautiful. It was simply perfect. I didn’t let go of it the whole day.
