The Sound of Love

The first May bank holiday was shaping up to be brilliant in so many ways. The sun was shining, Daft Punk's new song was on the radio and Nicola and Bede's wedding in Surrey was a perfect excuse to tie in a long weekend in Brighton.

I had met up with Nicola and Bede on one of my trips to London and over a cheeky pint it became clear that not only was their wedding going to be a visual feast - I was hearing Cadillac, Llamas, Emus, Curry bus, Saris -  but also that we were going to get on really well. And I was right.

From arriving at Nicolas house in the morning (and being made a welcome bacon butty from Dad, me highlighting my northernness by asking for 'red sauce') the day was an unfolding journey of massive smiles, tight hand holds, colour and music - and by do I mean music!

 

When I asked Nicola early on if there was a theme to the wedding she said "music" - now at every wedding music plays a big part but for Nicola and Bede it really set the tone for the whole day and was a loud reminder of everything they are as a couple. Proudly displayed on the tables were 12' Vinyl table numbers designed in house at Weddings Vintage by Hayley, each featuring a favourite uber cool record label - Island, Sun, Atlantic, Rough Trade...

 

And what can I say, THE CAR! A 19 foot long red Cadillac - thought to be the only one in the country - it really has to be one of my all time top wedding cars so much so I was jumping in myself for a photo! 

 

Then there was the curry bus, a bright pink van stationed on the terrace where guests could help themselves to lamb, chicken or fish curry wraps - every wedding simply should have one!

 

As I left the party dancing away the sky had turned an awesome shade of pink!

 

Me shamelessly posing with the Cadillac!
