A Cool East London Wedding

Meet Becci, a Consumer Insight Director, and Jochem, who's an Architect.

They were married on 16 June 2018 inside a joyful ceremony in the Committee Room, then a reception at a multi-purpose creative venue having a wonderful look at the Olympic Stadium.

The shape was perfect because I suit more mermaid wedding dresses and I wanted something having a simple shape at the very top and to accentuate my waist and figure. Plus I loved the buttons on the front using the lace inset, so although I wound up going for something bridal, that takes this dress from lovely to stunning.

For her gown, Becci felt she didnt want anything too bridal, and tried on a lot of different dresses in her search.

We didnt have bridesmaids but my sister who had been Chief person, my mum, and my pal La were my team. I couldnt do it all without their help! We also didnt dictate what individuals should wear, we wanted everyone to become comfortable.

We wanted a party with this favorite people and that we wanted the space to become inviting and warm, relaxed and comfy, whilst still being stylish and pretty. Succulents are hardy, white linen is straightforward, and the private design by Jochem and friends gave the area some fun and color. The personal nods to where we're from and facets of our personalities brought everything to life.

We didnt possess a best man or groomsmen but rather had us and friends help with different areas of the day and undertake different roles.

We met whenever we were both residing in Helsinki, Finland in 2008 on our Erasmus year abroad. We lived within the block of flats opposite one another and things started like a friendship, fuelled by Finlandia vodka nights. After we left Helsinki, both of us went to university in separate countries but met up every new year having a group of our friends from Erasmus. After the new year within the Alps, we started talking on Skype every single day and realized we wanted to become together.

The first three years of our relationship were long-distance as I was residing in Belfast and Jochem was at university within the Netherlands. We visited one another every month and went to live in London in 2013 to reside together.

As weve been together for 8 many living together for 5 years it felt to walk in together and I loved that both teams of parents got to become part of walking on the aisle too.

Weve shared the job of a talented photographer, and its fantastic to become able to increase that today with one of these beautiful images of Becci and Jochems day.

Katie was amazing! We are so happy using the photos she captured your day perfectly! We found her as she had photographed another wedding at Stour Space which we had online and loved the design and style of her photos. We first met her at her flat that is just on the road where we live and we knew quickly that we wanted her to capture our wedding.

My favorite part of other weddings may be the speeches so I knew I desired to speak inside my wedding. I opened the speeches and located I wasnt nervous whatsoever!

We thought a lot concerning the first dance song there was a lot of we could have chosen. Before the wedding, we'd asked guests to transmit our songs to create a playlist for throughout the dinner and dancing and one of our friends sent Sunny by Boney M. When we put it on the few days before the wedding with all of my family around all of us jumped up and started dancing and kept playing it within the next few days.

We chose to pick this as our first dance song because it is so happy and also you cant help smiling whenever you hear it! We hadnt practiced dancing together into it and if this came around into it we found it very hard to dance to but that just managed to get even funnier!

Words of Wedded Wisdom

Overall, I would say try not to become a perfectionist as youll only drive yourself mad! Think about the key stuff that you cant do without and obtain those sorted first. I would also say be sure you accept the aid of those who are around you and give people jobs to complete! We couldnt do it without us and friends. We kept reminding ourselves through the planning if this got stressful that probably the most important thing was our marriage and anything else around that would be a bonus.
