A Chic & Fashionable London Wedding
6th January 2016

Wow, Susie is definitely my kind of bride. She had an incredible chic & fashionable London wedding to Mark at the Mayfair Library and 34 Mayfair restaurant. Susie describes her look as ‘Sex & the City meets Olivia Palermo.’ For those of you who don’t know, I was literally obsessed with Sex & the City, and still miss it to this day! I also definitely admire the style of Olivia Palermo and loved her ‘Carolina Herrera’ ensemble. In case you don’t remember what she wore, she was dressed in a three piece outfit, a cream coloured cashmere sweater, white shorts and a tulle skirt overlay. Like Susie, Olivia was also inspired by a certain ‘Miss Carrie Bradshaw’ of Sex and the City and wore cobalt blue Manolo Blahnik shoes that Carrie wore when she married ‘Mr Big.’
Susie and Mark first met in London nine years ago, but did not reconnect until Susie moved back to Australia and Mark was holidaying in Melbourne last October. The couple had a long distance relationship for five months, but then Susie moved back to London. ‘Five months after I moved back to London, he proposed,’ says Susie. The proposal was very romantic. ‘We were on a cliff at an amazing beach in Ibiza and he got down on one knee,’ explains Susie. ‘We didn’t realise so many people could see from the beach & restaurants & everyone started clapping!’
Susie describes her look as ‘very relaxed.’ I would also say it was very chic and just perfect for her fashionable London wedding. ‘I got the classic blue Manolo Blahniks from Harrods first, then worked my way around that,’ says Susie. ‘I didn’t want a gown, I wanted something casual, so the shoes & accessories were the glitz. My skirt was high waisted, white and from Coast. I made it more fun buy putting a tutu underneath. My top needed to be plain, smart with three quarter sleeves. My necklace was vintage Top Shop which was just enough sparkle to work with the shoes.
