Young at Heart: A Stylish Mature Couple’s Colourful & Intimate London Wedding

Mature couple wedding 110

Mandy-Jane and Tony tied the knot on 20th September with an intimate wedding ceremony at Chelsea Old Town Hall, followed by a dinner reception at Murano by Angela Hartnett, an Italian restaurant in London.

This sweet and stripped back wedding was captured by our friend Hannah Larkin, who took the couple to Hyde Park, their shared favourite childhood playground for some wonderfully fun and relaxed portrait shots after their ceremony.

It’s never, ever too late to express your love and commitment through marriage and I adore how this couple have embraced this notion in their own style; no fuss or flair, just their very nearest and dearest and some wonderful, colourful fashion choices that expressed their personalities. Enjoy!

The Dress

My dress was by Veni Infantino, from the Nigel Rayment Boutique. I wanted a dress that reflected my personality; playful and full of colour.

I wore a pearl headcrown and cream Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes and made my bouquet myself.

We were married in Chelsea Old Town Hall. We walked in together into the ceremony room. This was to ‘Everyday I Wake Up, I’m In Love – It’s a Beautiful World Tonight’, all written and recorded and sung by my husband.

Photography

Our photographer was Hannah Larkin – she was absolutely amazing.

Hannah had some really creative ideas and really was amazing at listening which is an extremely important skill. 

She was so accommodating and very kind.

How They Met

We met at a music venue where my now husband was the lead guitarist and singer.

We got engaged in The Fiztwilliam Hotel Belfast on a surprise romantic break and were engaged for two years before we got married.

Tony wore a suit by Massimo Dutti.

Our favourite moment of the day was having photographs taken in Hyde Park, as it brought back wonderful memories of when we were children.

We chose our reception location, Murano Restaurant by Angela Hartnett, as I have followed Angela for many years. Later into the evening, we had ‘Everyday I Wake Up, I’m In Love’ once again which we danced to – a song chosen because my husband wrote it for me.

We believe that it is important to stay true to yourself.  Plan what works for you both.  Invite those who you love and love you. Also, less is absolutely 100% more.
