real wedding –  Intimate London wedding with Alexander McQueen and Shrimps

11 February 2019

Joanna Brown is pulling out all the stops with this divine intimate London wedding – with the bride in an Alexander McQueen dress and a Shrimps handbag, it’s the stuff that styling dreams are made of.

Ahead of a bigger wedding in France, Lorene and Alex wanted a small and intimate London wedding for family and close friends. They got married at Islington Town Hall before a super relaxed reception at St John, Clerkenwell, where guests were greeted with enamel mugs, handlettered by Alice Gabb and filled with treats.

“With just close family and handful of friends, the wedding was quiet and delicate if that makes sense.” Joanna explains. “Lorene and Alex are French and just so gentle and so kind and warm! They wanted nothing more than to spend quality time with their loved ones in their beloved London, focusing on a really amazing meal, intimate ceremony and drinks on the way to dinner. It was super relaxed and informal with no formalities just hanging out with each other.”

And don’t they make intimate look amazing? Those photos of them roaming the backstreets of Islington, with beautiful townhouses are their backdrop, are just blissful. Not to mention Lorene’s puffy-sleeved Alexander McQueen number, and her beaded Shrimps bag – we are ALL for a bridal handbag!
