A wedding blessing with lots of bunting and fairy lights, and confetti cannons, at this London pub wedding at the Depot N7, North London.
It has been an embarrassing amount of time since I last shared a real wedding on the blog! And, obviously as a planner, I absolutely must share them in chronological order. Or else it would go against every eccentrically organised bone in my body! But the more time kept peddling on, the more and more behind I was getting…! Enter, Covid, more lockdowns, still working and trying to keep clients happy with rescheduled dates but with little income, I had a baby (he’s now two!), then a wild summer where weddings were back on.. then a stint getting treatment in hospital. So! Please forgive me! And excuse the fact I’m going right back to 2019 to share this gorgeous London pub wedding. It’s been so long that the couple have since emigrated to Australia and now have a nearly-school-age little boy!!! I wondered whether it was still relevant, but any gorgeous wedding photos are a joy for me to share, so I hope you find them interesting and inspiring, and helpful to see how other people did what.
As Jennie says below in her super kind testimonial, she had two weddings! So this was her big one, post legal. Enjoy.

“Of all the things and services we spent money on for our wedding there was one stand out that was worth her weight in gold! Laura was our wedding angel sent from a Google search!
I knew I wanted to do most of the planning for our wedding myself but as we got further and further into the process I realised that I couldn’t do it all and be a bride who enjoyed her day. We asked Laura to work with us as our on the day coordinator. From the moment I had my first call with Laura I felt more at ease and confident in the planning process. From saying just a few words she knew exactly what we were looking to achieve on our day and was able to advise us on how we could do this.
As we got nearer to the day Laura became more and more invaluable. We were doing things a little differently and getting married in Australia 2 weeks before our wedding in London, Laura completely got this and stepped up so that as we flew out to the other side of the world we could relax knowing that she would be the perfect point of contact for all our suppliers as the big day got nearer. She put together a Wedding Day Brief that got everyone singing from the same hymn sheet and tirelessly chased up the pesky supplier who’s contact wasn’t so reliable!
Then it was time for the big day, Laura arrived at the venue and did all the set up, making the venue look absolutely stunning and turning the pub courtyard into our beautiful magic wedding chapel! She had everyone under control, even the groomsmen! After the ceremony, I swear it was as if she multiplied, she was everywhere. Seemlessly organising a perfect exit from the ceremony through a bubble walk, ensuring that all the wedding party had drinks before the photos started. She effortlessly took care of the guests inside enjoying drinking whilst also nudging me to hold my shoulders back so I looked better for the photos! She was magic!
Throughout the whole day she would appear and whisper in mine and my husband’s ear “we’re going to do this part in about 5 minutes” so that I could finish a conversation or my drink and get to the right place on time. Your wedding day is hectic and there is so much going on that you have to be involved in but it’s hard to focus when all your favourite people are in one place. Laura made it so that we didn’t have to focus, she enabled us to just enjoy it. I was a guest at my own wedding and it was 100% because of Laura!
I implore anyone to seek Laura’s help with their day! I promise you she will make the entire experience everything you could possible dream of! Thank you Laura – Wedding Angel”
