A Sophisticated Wedding in The City of London
Pamela and Robert’s sophisticated urban wedding took place in the heart of The City of London. They were married in Chelsea, had a church ceremony at St Anne’s Lutheran Church in The City, and the reception held at Coq D’Argent, the exceptional roof top restaurant overlooking the Bank of England. The wedding day was an inspiring mix of contemporary and traditional.
Slightly breaking with tradition, Pamela and Robert were married in the morning at Chelsea Registry Office with just their brother and sister as witnesses. Later that morning Pamela returned to The Halkin Hotel, a chic boutique hotel in the heart of Knightsbridge, where she got ready with her sister and parents. The dress is from Pamela’s hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA, and her bouquet was made of blush pink peonies.
They held the marriage ceremony in the afternoon at St Anne’s Lutheran Church, which was built by Sir Christopher Wren after the great fire of London. You can find this historical church right in the heart of the city, along the remnants of London Wall.
Pamela walked down the aisle on rose petals that had been scattered (rather boisterously!) by the two cute pageboys. After the service, Pamela and Robert, with Jemma, took a walk down the backstreets of London to the reception venue, Coq D’Argent. Along the way they stopped for some portraits outside the Guildhall and along the cobbled backstreets of London. Despite the slightly rainy weather spirits were high and the umbrellas came in handy.
The guests had a whale of a time, no dampening of spirits by the rain. We left them dancing the night away to the YMCA!
