So here’s an unusual one – a venue which caught my eye as much as it did my imagination. And you know what? I love wedding venues which are different, unique – especially when they’re not dedicated wedding venues.

I’m always asking why wedding venues can’t afford decent chairs: if every restaurant in the land manages to have chairs which don’t need polyester covers, how come our top venues still have dodgy business chairs we have to pay to hide?! It makes me want to hire a proper restaurant instead; somewhere that just looks awesome. Oh! And here’s one…

It’s available to hire on Saturdays and Sundays, and I featured Rosie and Jon’s gorgeous wedding reception there back in 2015.

Rosie & Jon are amazing. Their relaxed city wedding is gorgeous: full of pretty details contrasting beautifully against the built up backdrop – and their reception venue is perfect.

Rosie’s dress is out of this world: she looks stunning and I was convinced she’d bought from one of our top designers… until she told me her mother made it for her – “My heart swells at the thought of how much love she put into that dress. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever worn.

Rosie and Jon found most of their suppliers online, using wedding blogs and Pinterest for inspiration. Their photographer – lovely Jonny Donovan Photography – was one of the best online discoveries:

The gorgeous couple told me not only did they love their photographer, all of their guests did as well! And the images speak for themselves… I think they’re fabulous.

Watch out for the table plan with a bit of an animal theme – the wedding reception was held at London Zoo! Janie’s dress is a beautiful Stewart Parvin gown which she looks incredible in, and Paul wears a fantastic suit hired from Impeccable. Other ideas on the blog today include the cheese and chutneys… which are making my mouth water! I’d love to see this at a wedding, wouldn’t you?! The food looks delicious and it goes to show that every little detail counts when it comes to catering. A beautiful day with lots of thoughtful and great-looking touches.
