Cindy & Gerald Bright City Wedding at Honourable Artillery Company London by Cecelina Photography

Cindy & Geraldine Honorable Artillery Company London Wedding| Cecelina Photography | www.nubride.com_0144.jpgOooh I have a stylish and colourful London city wedding, with a French twist to share with you today from the beautifully talented Cecelina Photography

 

I instantly fell in love with, ‘Ian Stuart’ Bride; Cindy and ‘King & Allen’ Groom; Gerald (both of French Caribbean heritage), from the moment I read their romantic proposal story.

I asked them what their favourite part of their wedding day was, to which they replied with passion: “We were both in the middle of the dance-floor, with our friends and family dancing, having fun. Our eyes met and we both said “Finally, this is over”

Brilliantly brilliant.

Honouring their culture, Cindy and Gerald quite appropriately tied the knot in the beautiful Notre Dame de France Church in Leicester Square, followed by an elegant and regal reception at The Honorable Artillery Company.

Read on to be utterly inspired and captivated by their day.

We quickly agreed that we wanted a London/English themed wedding, due to the fact that most of our guests were coming from abroad (France, Guadeloupe, Martinique). We wanted them to enjoy the wedding as much as the city.
My wedding dress is “Constantine” by Ian Stuart purchased at London Bride Couture.

The shoes are Jenny Packham

We were in Sardinia for our summer holidays, which coincided with my birthday. We try to always be abroad for that day. Gerald booked a fancy gastronomic restaurant, which happened to be empty when we got there. I should have known something was up when he mentioned which dress he wanted me to wear for my birthday, (he usually couldn’t care less).

During the whole thing I was obsessed with the idea of going for drinks after I saw a lounge on the way. I wanted to get my groove on ! An empty posh restaurant was not enough for me.
Little did I know, at the end of the meal, my head was blown away when the waitress presented me with the ring of my dreams, the one I told him about when we were students so many years before. (Wow!! That’s excellent attention to detail!)
He then got down on one knee and proposed but I couldn’t hear a thing because I was sobbing so hard. I eventually heard the end of his speech and replied with a nod and a grunt smothered by tears and mucus… “
Oh Cindy you are brilliant and what a beautiful proposal! WOW Gerald!!!

My Bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung (Style: D448) dresses purchased at Les Trois Soeurs in London in 4 different shades of pink-purple to create an ombré effect that I always wanted.

The shoes were from New Look

Love the idea of bubbles for confetti! Great idea for venues where Confetti is not allowed!

The funniest moment were definitely our speeches!
For our entertainment, Gerald recorded his own mix and the crowd loved it!

Our first dance was to John Legend So High mixed with Dominik Coco “Lwen”

The favourite moment of our wedding day?

The whole day was special and full of love but we both agree; the best moment was when we were both in the middle of the dance-floor, with our friends and family dancing, having fun. Our eyes met and we both said “Finally, this is over”

A wedding is a loooooong process/preparation and the relief that we felt at that moment, was priceless.

Our great photographer Cecelina actually caught that moment with two pictures that we ABSOLUTELY love.
