With a big, beautiful cosmopolitan guest list of family and friends across the UK, US, and Japan, R&P chose to host their wedding in the fantastical Temperate House - an iconic London landmark which forms a key part of Kew Garden's plant conservation efforts. The couple wanted the gathering to feel welcoming, intimate, and understated, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the natural scenery and catch-up with loved ones in a meaningful way. It was a day filled with laughter and literature - an unforgettable celebration planned while navigating the difficulties of a global pandemic, and that was brought to life even more joyfully and beautifully than I could have imagined, thanks to an absolutely stellar team and the grace and resilience of this wonderful couple. A story that I was honoured to be part of, from start to finish!
