It’s six years since Dan and I got married, so today, I want to invite you to time travel with me back to 2010, to reminisce on our big day with a little celebratory flick through the wedding album…

We had a London winter wedding – three reasons: we both grew up in the Big City, we like cosy winter weather (!) and the build up to Christmas. We’re not big white church wedding kinda people either, so I curated our special day around my love affair with nostalgic 60s style – it seems to suit us both.

I put a flower in my hair and my mini dress on, and Dan got out his slim-fit suit and shoes with light blue laces, and off we went to tie the knot like true Rock n Roll greats, Mick and Bianca Jagger, at The Old Marylebone Town Hall in central London. It was magical!

After the ceremony, we hopped on a nostalgic old Routemaster bus for a cosy champagne drive through London to a hidden ballroom above the Institute of Contemporary Arts for food, drinks and dancing.

Speeches over, it was time for a slice of our giant carrot cake before hitting the dance floor.

For the evening part, we hired the best DJ ever. We first saw him play at Space in Ibiza wearing a gold boiler suit and waving a light sabre. We knew we had to have him for our wedding DJ! His hame is Lord Ant B and he gets into character for all his shows. For us, he chose a dapper 60s gent ensemble, complete with purple winkle picker suede boots (not pictured… I forgot to snap them!) He played records from the 60s up to now and there might even have been a conga… the first at the ICA apparently. Oh yeh!

  1. Oh how cool was your wedding! And I love the sixties vibe of it all – infact I thought it was a genuine pic of a sixties wedding at first.

    I did the same as you – had polaroids/fujisnaps taken of the guests and they all signed messages to us. It's such a nice keepsake.

  2. Thanks Sue. I'm drawn to the 60s but didn't intentionally choose it to look 60s if that makes sense. With the style of photos, it kind of came together that way. Photo guest books are a great idea 🙂 x

  3. These pictures gave a little bit of goosebumps-the whole atmosphere is so romantic and bright-and just the right balance between glam and effortless. Congrats on the five year anniversary!

  4. Wow Ellie!! Too cool!! What a wonderful way to celebrate a union of marriage. I love the 60's theme and you nailed it!! Also, never shy away from photos showing your beauty and outgoing and I'm sure, catching personality!! You are both super!! Thanks for the moments! Cheers to you and Dan!
