These stunning blooms from Rachel Morgan Wedding Flowers created the perfect backdrop to this special day. Hello lovely readers, and welcome to another issue of Your London Wedding. We’re well into autumn now, and I’ve loved every second of this beautiful season. There’s nothing better than strolling hand-in-hand through the forest this time of year to get some fresh air while enjoying nature. Plus, I’m a jumper girl at heart, and love wrapping up warm. The scenery has embraced shades of orange, red and yellow this time of year, which creates the ultimate backdrop for weddings. For those tying the knot during autumn, embrace the rich tones and seasonal foliage in your venue styling. Think sunflowers, berries, acorns, dahlias and hydrangeas, which can be transpired throughout your stationery, florals and cake too! My favourite season is just around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome winter. I can picture it now, getting cosy on the sofa with a blanket and hot chocolate while watching my favourite Christmas films. The treats will be in, and the candles will be lit as the darker evenings approach. It’s such a magical time of year with plenty of family time, food, festive cheer and friendly competition with must-have board games – scrabble anyone? This issue is bursting full of inspiration, thanks to the wonderful suppliers around the region! We have wedding must-haves, drawdropping weddings, showstopping venues, expert advice, gowns galore and top honeymoon destinations. Flick to our beauty pages to discover the latest product launches and wellness advice, or discover all the latest happenings from around the city in our news feature.

JEWL OF THE AISLE London-based jewellery brand Loveness Lee has introduced the new Mushroom Collection, an 18-piece jewellery adventure with texture-filled designs paired with the largest combination of lab-grown gemstones the brand has ever created – it’s perfect for boho or rustic-themed weddings. Inspired by the beauty within, owner Loveness foraged an array of curious-looking wild mushrooms from the forest floor while on her morning run. After bringing them back to her OXO Tower studio, she plucked underneath each pillow-like shell to uncover intricate patterns and forms. Working closely with her team, she used their signature wax casting technique to capture the textures, then formulated how each casting could be transformed into wearable art using her unique eye for design. Luxury gemstones were added to extenuate each texture, including cushion-cut blue sapphires, octagon-cut green emeralds and brilliant-cut moissanites. The collection highlights include signet-style rings like never seen before, signature choker necklaces and the Eryngii necklace with handcrafted link-like textures. Discover more about the company: FEEL LIKE ROYALTY Be transported to Cornwall this autumn as the Wellington Lounge at the InterContinental London Park Lane launches An Ode to Cornwall Afternoon Tea in partnership with renowned International Pastry Consultant Martin Chiffers. Inspired by the county’s rich culture and culinary heritage, utilising the best local produce, the experience occurs in the elegant Wellington Lounge. Guests can indulge in a decadent selection of handmade treats and savoury delights. Start with savoury options, including Newlyn crab casserole with smoked cornish caviar crostini, or try St. Ewe egg mayonnaise with watercress choux. The jam comes before the cream with Saffron raisin scones followed by sweet treats, including a centrepiece chocolate artwork depicting a ‘fish sale on a Cornish beach’ by British artist Stanhope Alexander Forbes. Other delights come in the form of the Duchess of Cornwall Hat with blackberry meringue, Cornish fairings mousse, Newlyn blackberry mead jelly and a Cornish apiaries honey cake with crème fraîche. Each guest will also be gifted a Chiffer signature Cornish clotted cream fudge. Complementing the afternoon tea is an extensive range of premium teas from the East India Company, or opt for a tipple from a curated list of wines, cocktails and champagne. Priced at £62 per person, or £78 with a glass of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne, the afternoon tea is the perfect option for pre-wedding date nights, hen dos or catching up with loved ones before the big day.

Discover more about the property: PRE-WEDDING DATE NIGHT AT THE DORCHESTER Nestled on the doorsteps of Hyde Park, The Dorchester is conveniently located in the heart of London and is home to one of only eight threeMichelin-star restaurants in the UK, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, where refined elegance meets modern French haute cuisine from the talented head chef Jean-Philippe Blondet. I had the fantastic opportunity to dine at this iconic restaurant that highlights the brilliance of Alain Ducasse, who holds 21 Michelin stars and has an international reputation in the culinary world. After being greeted by the professional staff who showed us to our brown-arched booth in the intimate setting, it was time to indulge in some unforgettable dishes with a seven-course tasting menu with wine pairings. After enjoying some amuse-bouche and a glass of Dom Pérignon P2 Vintage 2004 champagne, it was time for a hand-dived scallop with citrus beurre blanc and Kristal caviar paired with a Filipa Pato Nossa Calcário Branco 2021. The dish was utterly delicious, thanks to the fresh produce and the smooth, delicate texture that leaves you wanting more! Next, we enjoyed an aubergine with smoked sardine and lemon balm washed down with a glass of Domaine Barmès-Buecher 2018 Rosenberg Sylvaner. With well-balanced flavours and beautifully presented, it didn’t disappoint. My favourite was the restaurant’s signature dish with exquisitely cooked lobster medallion, chicken quelles, earthy Périgord truffles and homemade semolina pasta coated in a delicious sauce – it’s been on the menu since 2007! A Louis Roederer Rose 2016 from France was the perfect addition before being served a Domaine de la Tournelle Terre de Gryphées 2020 from France that was fine yet rich and profound. It was beautifully paired with the Cornish turbot, a sweet but mild fish known as the King of the Sea, and a tender sea thong marinated with green anise and sweet apricot. A first for me was a pigeon from Anjou! Tasty crapaudine beetroot, bottarga and wasabi accompanied the tender meat that was served with a Nestor Cuvee No.2 Cabernet Franc 2020 from Austria, which featured cornelian cherries, blackberries and a nougat note. As a huge cheese lover, I dived into the assortment of French cheeses and Colston Bassett stilton paired with a 10-year-old Dow’s Tawny Port before enjoying a lemon palate cleanser ready for dessert. A fig from Provence was beautifully presented with seaweed, tarragon and fig tree leaf sorbet. I couldn’t recommend Ducasse’s signature rum baba dessert with vanilla cream, an unforgettable heavenly dish! My top beverage of the night was a 2018 Domaine De Montgilet Les Trois Schistes, a sweet wine with marmalade, apricot and notes of honey. We finished the meal with canapé desserts and an assortment of chocolates before meeting the head chef. Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester provided an incredible culinary journey with world-class service and innovative dishes with delicious but subtle flavours. Everything was superb from start to finish, thanks to the faultless service provided by the professional waiting staff. With an insightful knowledge of each dish and an evident passion, they made my experience even more outstanding. It’s a showstopping experience to highlight and celebrate special moments in life – I will be returning in the near future.
