Fulham Palace, London
This day unfolded on the banks of the Thames, surrounded by the magnolias in full bloom and the delicate white blossom of the cherry trees. Vanessa loves the river. Indeed we captured the South Bank on Vanessa and Antony’s engagement shoot – the place where they had their first date. There was perfect symmetry to their decision to choose the beautiful Fulham palace for their wedding venue with it’s position on the river. With a nod to all things London, Vanessa chose to travel to the ceremony in a White London Cab.
Vanessa has impeccable style. Her elegant Suzanne Neville dress was paired with delicately beaded Emmy of London shoes. The colour palette of the day celebrated the richest Spring flowers with deep pink ranunculi and deepest purple anemones and irises. Jam Jar Flowers created beautiful floral accents to each stage of the day, celebrating the time of year in a unique way. Antony’s family, made and hand painted the fabulous wedding cake, which flew with them all the way from Australia – an incredible achievement and so delicious in so many ways.
This was such a lovely day, so much a celebration of Vanessa and Antony, and so much of Spring in London Town.
