Caroline and Robin's Vintage London Wedding
The Royal Institute of British Architects was the natural choice for Caroline and Robin's London wedding, as they are both architects by trade. It's a stunning, elegant building, as you'd expect, and was the perfect location for their art-deco inspired Swedish influenced wedding. Robin is Swedish, and so Caroline and Robin opted to marry in the Swedish Church in London, a stunning building in Marylebone, not far from Regents Park. Their reception venue, RIBA, is just 10 mins away in Portland Place, and you almost pass the park on the way, so of course we took a little diversion from the quickest route to take advantage of the beautiful park on a cold, winters day when it was practically deserted. Caroline wore a simple but breathtaking Jesus Piero gown, and her 1920s hairstyle was created by Severin Hubert at Hepburn Collection - a legend in the world of vintage hairdressing! Caroline wore Emmy shoes and her hair accessory was also by Emmy Shoes. The flowers were from a florist local to them, Pasi at Flor Unikon, a Scandinavian-style flower shop in Clerkenwell.
Scandinavian weddings have the tradition that anyone can stand up during the meal, ring a bell, and make a speech. I lost track around the 14th speech, but it was an amazing way to involve everyone in the day, and a great chance for all of their friends and family to express their love for this very special couple.
The dancing was breathtaking, from Caroline and Robin's choreographed first dance, to the dancing once their friend took over to DJ when the band were done, it was a fun-filled, laughter, filled, beautiful wedding day.
