I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Even if the day did not live up to expectations, Jessica and Joshua’s beautiful London wedding at the Rosewood London is definitely going to put a smile on your face.
After meeting in a bar in Camden, the couple swapped numbers and soon started dating. They were together for four years before getting engaged.
To give you a little background on Jessica, she is a huge chocoholic. ‘Josh quickly learnt that if he ever had bad news to tell me, he would give me a chocolate bar first (to sweeten me up as it were),’ says Jessica.
One day, Jessica came home to find a chocolate bar in the post box, knowing what this meant. ‘I opened the door to our hallway and found small chocolate bars running through the hall into the living room, each time growing in size,’ explains Jessica. ‘At this point, I am freaking out, thinking things like ‘he’s crashed his car, he’s bought a new car (Ferrari or some other mad sports car. I opened the bedroom door to find chocolate bars, candles everywhere and flowers. There, lying on the bed (brace yourself!), with only boxer shorts on, was my other half, smothered in body chocolate. Joshua gets down on one knee and tells me how much our life meant to him.’
Although Jessica was bemused that Josh covered himself in chocolate, she of course said yes to his proposal.
‘My veil was personally designed by Rebecca at The Hadley Bridal Collection, ‘says Jessica. ‘I wanted a one off, something unique,’ says Jessica.
Jessica and Josh’s wedding was organised by Stylish Events. ”Dominique at Stylish Events mentored me, it was a no brainer to have her help with my wedding,’ explains Jessica.
Both Jessica and Josh are non religious, so they chose to have a celebrant called Hannah from Love is Simple, who personalised the entire ceremony.
Special touches included lighting a flame in memory of Joshua’s dad as well as a hand fasting tradition. ‘I bought luxury ribbons from Kate Cullen, which Hannah tied round our hands, binding us together,’ says Jessica. ‘Once tied and bound together, the ribbons were placed in a rose gold box, which now resides on our coffee table. All our friends said it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had attended.’
Other special touches at Jessica and Joshua’s beautiful London wedding included staging and a personalised dance floor from Kudos AV. After dinner, the couple surprised their guests by bringing in JLee Productions who choreographed a ballet performance, using a blend of classical Vs drum and base.
Sensation band performed after dinner. ‘They were outstanding and really made the party,’ says Jessica.
Amie Bone is the florist behind couple’s incredible flowers, the flowers included white hydrangeas, and cream and blush roses.
‘For our table names, I took inspiration from my favourite Disney films, and had perspex names that glowed from the candlelight,’ says Jessica. ‘Intricate Creations made my table favours as place settings.’
According to Jessica, one of the highlights of their beautiful London wedding was when they saw how much their guests were enjoying themselves. ‘We brought everyone together for one night that they wouldn’t forget,’ says Jessica.
The photographer for Jessica and Joshua’s beautiful London wedding is the brilliant John Nassari, the incredible video below is also by him ‘John is down to earth, easy going and such a professional,’ explains Jessica.
If Jessica could give one piece of advice to future brides, is to accept that there are stressful moments when it comes to wedding plans. ‘When you feel stressed, take a step back for a day or weekend and do something completely different,’ says Jessica. ‘You will come back to planning with a fresh eye.’
Jessica is so enthusiastic about all her wedding suppliers. ‘I want to thank John Nassari especially for capturing our amazing day,’ she says. ‘I also arranged for my mother to have a bespoke dress made by Federica Bruno Couture, which everybody thought was incredible. Federica worked closely with my mum to make her feel extra special. I am her only daughter, so I wanted her to have a dress that was a one off!’ Jessica is also grateful to all the ladies at The Wedding Club.’
I hope you enjoy looking at Jessica and Joshua’s incredible wedding.
