DIY wedding at a traditional London pub

Hidden in every London borough is a traditional pub full of character that only the locals have discovered. In Wandsworth that would be The Brewers Inn, where Mark and Friesia hosted their wedding reception.

The couple wanted guests to feel relaxed, like they were celebrating at their home, which is what inspired them to style the pub with whimsical objects and plants from their backyard.

Dressing a venue yourself is not only cost effective but it ensures that the space looks exactly as you had envisioned (and Pinterested). This wedding is full of décor ideas for money conscious brides who are not willing to compromise on style- so ladies take note.

Their photographer Amy captured all these unique details plus she took some very candid photos of the guests looking exactly as the couple hoped- calm and oh so happy. Some of my favourite touches are their D.I.Y photo booth along with the message board offering props ‘fo yo selfies’. I love when brides don’t take their day too seriously because it allows the guests to really let their hair down.

Now we all know the long running joke about bridesmaids dresses, right? Well, these lucky maids can seriously wear their rockabilly dresses by Vivienne of Holloway again. The cocktail length and cut is so flattering you would want to find any excuse to wear them- a trip to Waitrose demands formal attire, right?

Thanks Mark and Friesia for letting me share your day and also to Amy for capturing it so beautifully.
