It seems only right that we should pay tribute to the city that made these two lovebirds so happy. The idea of getting married in London was absolutely delightful, and it was an opportunity to indulge in all of the city’s luxury hotels and historic venues.
Now that the wedding day has arrived, it’s time to take a look at what to expect – and how to prepare for the big day.
The Wedding March
As a city that is home to some of the finest orchestras in the world, London is a fitting venue for a wedding. After the ceremony, guests can venture down the aisle in style to the sound of Mendelssohn’s famous wedding music. This famous piece will be played throughout the evening as guests make their way to the reception. Mendelssohn’s famous tune will accompany and celebrate the marriage of two Scottish lads from Edinburgh.
For those guests who prefer to spend their wedding night in a more laidback setting, the bar at the Savoy will be serving a range of signature cocktails to wash down the wedding cake. But if you and your partner are both teetotallers, then it’s probably best that you don’t indulge in alcohol right before the ceremony. Of course, you can still have a drink at the reception – but why ruin a wedding treat?
Whether you choose to soak up the atmosphere at a luxury hotel or opt for a church wedding, you can expect to indulge in all the classics: champagne, wine and cocktails. And if you’re serving food at the wedding, it will be a sit-down affair with three courses, followed by one of the wedding cake’s many variants, and a few trifles to clean out your palate.
Rings, Jewellery And A Big Fancy Dinner
The most important thing to consider about a wedding is the most important thing – the ring. It’s not a bad idea to shop for something that reflects your personality, and something that is also representative of your city. If you are planning on giving away your engagement ring, then you might want to opt for a ring designed by a famous jeweller. It will be an item that she will cherish for the rest of her life.
As an iconic design brand, Van Cleef & Albert are well-known for designing exclusive rings for the most important clients. If you feel that your chosen jeweller is a little pricey, then it’s certainly worth considering other options. You could always ask the hotel where you’re getting married for some good suggestions or peruse the city’s many marriage websites to find the perfect marriage ring at a much lower price.
An important detail to consider is whether you want to put on your engagement ring during the ceremony or after the wedding meal. Some couples prefer to showcase their commitment to one another by wearing their engagement ring during the ceremony. This will be a symbol to their guests that their marriage is just as strong as their bond. However, many others choose to wait until their wedding anniversary to pop the question, so that they can make their special moment even more memorable.
Reception Venue And Evening To Remember
Once the ceremony is over, the newlyweds will be driven to their reception venue in a grand procession. Depending on the location of the event, the bride and groom may enjoy a short break from the wedding party, while the guests make their way to the reception.
The reception venue is one of the most important details of the wedding. It will dictate the overall feel and tone of the night. If you are in need of a venue that is close to the city’s centre, then you might want to consider a smaller venue, which will give the vibe of a more intimate affair. But if you want to create a more luxurious atmosphere, then a larger reception venue is the way to go. Another thing to consider is how formal or casual you want the reception to be. If you want a traditional, sit-down affair, then a formal restaurant is the way to go. Alternatively, if you want something more laidback, with family and friends congregating around a long table, then a casual eatery is perfect.
As the sun sets over London, it’s time for the celebration to come to an end. Whether you chose to spend the night at a luxury hotel or went for a church wedding, you can rest assured that this day will be remembered for a lifetime. Congratulations to you both!
