The best part of our day was….
The first glance of each other as I walked down the aisle.
We choose to get married at…
AllBright Mayfair: in a beautiful, vibrant and light room, with gorgeous terraces on each side of the airy room provided the perfect fresh space for our summer wedding in London! The lovely team at AllBright Mayfair were so incredibly reliable. They reacted so quickly to all of our requests that we felt so at ease as they helped us pull together our wedding in less than a six week turn around!
I knew I found ‘The One’ when….
I opted for a chic and silky suit from Rat and Boa for our London wedding — something elegant yet not your classic wedding day attire, I fell in love with the suit the moment I tried it on, paired with my Amina Muadi heels, this look made me feel so graceful and it truly was the perfect suit for our legal London wedding… I’m saving the wedding dress for Italy!
The most enjoyable moments of planning were…
We loved every moment … especially telling our guests we were getting married and the wedding was only 6 weeks away — the whirl wind process was filled with laughter, love and lots of little reunions with our extended family and friends. We loved designing our invites, we did a simple line drawing of ourselves, it was so cute!
The hardest part of planning was…
Choosing our guests was a challenge, due to covid restricts we were limited… however, we opted for closest friends and family, along side a live stream and the most incredible photography by Alba!

My top three tips for any couple would be…
- Choose the right photographer — we can’t express how much we love our wedding photos, Alba did the most magnificent job of capturing natural moments and lots of love!
- Do rely on your friends and family to help, don’t take all the pressure and tasks on yourself!
- Enjoy every moment, as the day is approaching and complications arrise, if it can’t be solved just let it be and stay calm the day will be perfect anyway, after all, it is about celebrating your love.
If I was able to do it all over again, the one thing I would change is…
Having more people next to us on our special day
