“Swinging London” among the hazelnuts
How was your weekend? We’ve been busy with two beautiful weddings and loooooots of love.
Along with our big news of a new mini avellana on the way, today I want to share the wedding of another couple that is about, I mean really ABOUT to have their first baby! Today we’re going to the UK, Sonia and Gerard’s wedding!
Sonia and Gerard were a unique couple with very clear taste and they knew what they wanted for their wedding, that everything reflect their personality and passions. The decoration was inspired by the 60’s, the age of the mods and underground and everything had a British air about it.
The ceremony was held in the “Rincón de la Virgen” which represented a tea room with symbols of mods in the background and even a tea pot and porcelain cups just in case anyone got thirsty 😀 . Both bride and groom made a dancing entrance to the ceremony and also the bridesmaids and groomsmen (with a total Brit look). The bridesmaids surprised the bride with matching dresses, which went really well with the beautiful, short, white wedding dress, that Sonia had custom made (how I love brides in short dresses!). Gerard was also really cool with a pair of black and white Oxford shoes.
For the sitting we took our inspiration for the London tube, we recreated the map of the mythical Underground with vinyl records. Each record represented a tube stop and a table.
We also placed a table with a guestbook inspired by 5:00 tea time. We placed a small box with a bunch of tea bags. There was a little piece of paper hanging from each bag where guests could write a message.
The decoration for the dining room also followed tea time suit, with many tea cups and dishes decorated with British prints! During dinner the couple’s friends surprised them with an amazing gift, a Vespa that they had restored!
And that’s how the celebration went on hours and hours, loads of dancing, rhythm and Britpop, a lot of style, class and love!
And so I leave you friends, now that its tea time, which you know I love… with a little milk and honey… mmmmm! 😀
