A Cool, DIY East London Wedding
Lauren, a freelance advertising creative, and Jon, an innovative media tutor, married on 21 July 2018 in the beautiful, then a reception at an excellent dry venue space in the sensitively restored and converted railway arch.
"I'd like to say everything just fell seamlessly into place, but no; there have been many mood boards, endless nights of tab-surfing, and too many discussions about color. Despite taking a look at all the package options, we found it very hard to hand within the control, so went for that dry-hire DIY route. Everything just seemed cheaper, better, or even more fun to complete ourselves."
Lauren was built with a bespoke dress, and also the result is beautiful – backless having a guipure lace bodice and long sleeves along with a simple and classy skirt, filled with embroidery around the back, too.
I love the contrast between your bridesmaid's bouquets of fresh greenery (produced by Lauren) as well as their pretty peach prom dresses from your directory members.
Jon wore a wonderful blue tweed three-piece suit from together having a dark floral print tie along with a pair of classic brogues, and had an excellent time assembling his outfit.
"I'm eternally grateful for my Best Man – my bro and all sorts of my groomsmen for supporting me with the whole thing. My oldest buddy, Barrie, flew all of the ways over from Australia to become with us, that was incredible. All the lads chipped in and did their bit, we wouldn't happen to be able to pull it off without one."
Lauren had planned to consider a taxi to Hackney Town Hall but was surprised at her dad's arrival inside a lovely vintage car hired for that occasion. Together they walked down the aisle towards the song Little Person by Jon Brion.
Immediately following the ceremony, Lauren and Jon took serious amounts of enjoyment that simply married joy if you take a ride within the vintage car Lauren’s dad had supplied, this time using the top down!
"Jon and I drove around the same streets we've been down and up a million times within the years, yet this time around we were just married, using the top-down, as strangers cheered us along – I'll always remember it."
There was a delicious cake, too, which Lauren beautifully describes as 'Two generations of Victoria sponge', produced by her mum and gran, and decorated with fruit and ivy.
"Jon is a producer so entertainment was always going to become easier/more difficult – whichever way you love to look at it! We desired to make sure it had been great music but also was built with a relaxed house party vibe so Jon made a great setup that meant friends could jump behind the desk without having to sacrifice their turn around the dance floor. We danced to 'Baby' by Donnie and Joe Emerson. There was no real reason, it simply felt right."
"It's this type of cliche and I didn't quite accept it as true until I experienced it myself, however, it truly was the very best day of my entire life. Every minute."
Words of Wedded Wisdom
"Don't try to complete everything yourself, but don't forget it feels a lot more personal whenever you do."
"It's simple to let tradition dominate when it comes to speeches – disregard the fear, here's your opportunity, nobody else's. Own it, and encourage others to complete the same."
