Nathan and Kayla’s North London Wedding

Nathan & Kayla got married in July, in London.  Uncharacteristically, for London it was a lovely, even hot,  summer’s day.

This wedding was fun and fresh with lots of love.  Nathan is Welsh and Kayla Australian, they met in north London and had a crazy long distance romance – which took them to London, Australia, the Netherlands, Wales and Ireland.

The wedding was in North London with the photographs taken by Britt Spring, I love the depth of the green in the Hampstead Heath shots.  The reception was in Mill Hill at the Adam & Eve a great space both inside and out. Nathan’s sister, Deb,  had made heaps of cakes for the reception and the wedding cake which provided the sugar rush to keep everyone dancing.

For the flowers: Kayla wanted something light, fresh and fun.  The bridesmaids’ dresses were yellow, a 50’s cut, with a mauve tie so they set the tone.  Working with pinks, yellows, creams, whites and mauve created a really fresh palette.   We opted to focus on more creams and yellows for Kayla’s bouquet so as not to overwhelm the simplicity of her dress and then have fun with the bridesmaid’s bouquets; embracing everything about a summer’s day.   Kayla left me to pick the flowers at the market and with this palette there was no shortage of fabulous blooms to choose from, given the season. Wax flower was by far one of the most versatile blooms,  reasonably priced, goes a long way and is hardy even on warmer days.

For the reception Kayla had collected and entire box of glasses and bowls from a thrift shop.  I wasn’t quite sure what I would be getting to work with but the eclectic mix really work well with the relaxed mix and match style at the pub.



The Colours: Yellow, mauve and pink;
