Derin was referred to me by a mutual friend almost a year and a half before her wedding although it was’t until around 6 months before the wedding that we arranged to meet at a local cafe. Prior to this we had exchanged a few e-mails about some of the ideas Derin and Adam had planned for their day and my pricing information. It was great to hear more about the details that the couple had planned which included lots of DIY aspects and a travel theme as they both love to travel. Here are a few highlights from Derin and Adam’s beautiful, Chiswick Town Hall wedding.
Adam making a few final adjustments…
In the hallway of Chiswick Town Hall there was a travel theme seating plan, with names of places from around the world that were special to the bride and groom.
Down the aisle was this unique mat that the couple made. The pictures and dates ran chronologically from when the couple first met to when they became engaged up until their wedding day.
Derin’s gorgeous handmade paper bouquet was made of maps which tied in with the travel theme.
