Lydia & Matt’s Traditional London Wedding – Dulwich Village & The Gherkin

London couple Lydia and Matt first met at the Fence Bar in Farringdon when Matt was celebrating his birthday. A mutual friend invited Lydia assuring her that Matt wouldn’t mind. However, if you ask Matt the same question about how they met, he will explain that Lydia gate crashed his party! 😉 No matter which one is telling the truth they both say they are obviously truly delighted to have been brought together on that very special day. Before the proposal Matt and Lydia broke tradition with the arrival of their daughter Rose Luna. It was a beautiful time in their relationship and a perfect addition to their family, making Charlie a big brother and going from a family of three to a family of four.

The Proposal

When Rose Luna was just 3 months old Matt arranged a family weekend away to escape the bustle of the city for a few days to enjoy a peaceful setting with a trip to the Cotswolds in early October. The cottage was very charming surrounded by gorgeous countryside with a large roaring fireplace keeping the cottage cosy and warm. Once the children were in bed they settled down in front of the fireplace for a romantic meal opening up a bottle of champagne. They chatted for hours discussing the joys of their family, future plans and dreams. At that moment Matt proposed to Lydia asking her to be his wife, with a custom made diamond engagement ring from Hatton Garden engraved with the proposal date.

The Wedding Day

Lydia and Matt love the buzz of living in London and chose to get married in the Capital as it perfectly reflects who they are – a modern day city couple who enjoy visiting new restaurants and bars, exploring different postcodes and checking out London’s beautiful architecture. They moved to Dulwich village 3 years ago and have walked past their dream wedding day venue Christ Chapel, Dulwich Village hundreds of times as well as attending there regularly. The chapel gave them the traditional British service they were after as well as providing a fantastic personal touch with their vicar John Watson taking the service accompanied by

Susie & Michael’s Secluded Beach Wedding

Bride Susie and groom Michael are both Korean-American’s and first met at a friend’s party in New York City. They wanted a small and intimate destination wedding with close friends and family, so they could spend a few relaxed days together while enjoying everything a truly tropical destination wedding has to offer.

The Proposal: Michael’s proposal was ingenious and we salute his patience, waiting for the actual moment to arise! One of the first times they went away together they booked into a beautiful B&B in Vermont. Adam had a cunning proposal idea, he asked Susie help him do a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle, which actually took them all day to complete. You know that annoying moment when you’re missing the last piece, well that’s exactly what happened but of course there was a twist. Michael had placed, what turned out to be the last piece, into a jewellery box which he hid inside the closed puzzle box. Michael pretended to look for the piece while Susie grew increasingly agitated. Susie then decided to grab and shake the puzzle box, hurrah she heard something inside, so quickly tore it open and found a jewellery box… Michael quickly got on one knee and popped the question with the ring in his hand. After five seconds of silence, obviously in shock, Susie responded by asking “does that mean the missing piece is in here?” pointing to the jewellery box. Her first instinct was to finish the puzzle and then replied “Yes!” putting on her stunning engagement ring by jewellers Jerry Blickman.
