Laura Lopez married Gary O'Donnell at Chelsea Old Town Hall followed by a reception at The Rutland Arms on 7th September, 2017.
“I'd never tried on a wedding dress before so I didn't know what would suit my curvy Spanish figure. I tried about 20 before finding the one.” – Laura
We came across The Rutland Arms on a sunny afternoon in June. We were walking along the river and popped in for a drink. The riverside location was perfect.
“I wanted my bridesmaids to feel comfortable so I let them choose their own dresses, giving them just two rules: it must be full-length and pastel.” – Laura
I chose a grey three-piece suit, and my groomsmen wore navy suits with burgundy pocket squares and socks.
“My colleagues gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers the day before the wedding. I rearranged them into a bouquet tied with a lace ribbon.” – Laura
We chose a soft palette of ivory, pink and gold for the reception décor – with pink table runners, and petals scattered along the length.
