Chelsea & Jakub’s Classic London Summer Wedding
at 116 Pall Mall in London
This is just stunning. We both cried. You and Bradley captured everything so beautifully and edited it so perfectly.
We can’t thank you enough!– Chelsea & Jakub
This beautiful central London wedding was in late May, on Bradley’s birthday in fact. And the sun was hot, Chelsea (in London 🙂 ) was in full bloom with flowers lining every street, and it was so lovely to travel into the city to experience the buzz as summer was arriving!
It’s become an accidental, yet perfect, running theme that so many of our couples are originally from different countries – finding love across oceans and borders and cultures. The way people find each other never ceases to amaze me. With Chelsea being from the USA and Jakub from the UK, bringing their families and friends together in London meant all the more to them.
And spending the day with them, you could feel how much it meant to every single person in the room. When every person could not be happier for the two people saying I do, the whole day is electric with excitement.
Helen from Helen Warner Photography is one of our favourite photographers to work alongside. She is the sweetest, calmest and loveliest person you’ve met. She has a keen eye for the details, noticing when something is out of place and always looking for the best light. Most of all she’s the best to spend the day with!
Chelsea got ready in a beautiful Airbnb around the corner from Victoria station. Her bridesmaids all dressed in beautiful black tulle dresses by Jenny Yoo, and the Airbnb had the monochrome styling to match. It all worked so perfectly. En route to the ceremony we stopped at a couple of classic London locations that Helen had found to capture some portraits of Chelsea with her bridesmaids – it was lovely having the time for them to enjoy these moments together and the classic London backdrops were perfect!
From the ceremony until late everyone gathered at 116 Pall Mall. With the beautiful guilded ceremony room, lovely outdoor garden courtyard, an amazing ball room for the reception and a sophisticated underground bar – it’s an amazing central London location.
My favourite moment from Chelsea & Jakub’s film is Jakub’s eyes filling with tears as Chelsea walks down the aisle. We’ve filmed so many reactions over the years, but this one felt so true and pure – I hope everyone finds someone who looks at them the way Jakub looks at Chelsea.
When it comes to DJs – they make or break the dance floor, a bad DJ will have the dance floor emptied within seconds. But there is no doubt in my mind that Wedding Smashers are amongst the best – Chelsea & Jakub’s dance floor was full every single second, and everyone was having the best time. And it was the perfect end to a beautiful day.
Chelsea and Jakub,
Never have two people looked at each other the way you two do. The love you have found is evident and abundant, and a privilege to capture.
Your wedding was beautiful, well thought-out with lovely details. But the focus really was in the right place – the two of you and the love that you share. You told us from the start how much getting married meant to you both, and it was clear to see through every second!
Sending all our love for your married life together, as always,
Bradley & Grace
