Just a week before Christmas, Samantha & Davide were married in an intimate ceremony at Islington Town Hall with a relaxed reception in a pub just a short walk away. Although they now live in the United States, Islington was the neighbourhood they called home together for 5 years so they were excited to be celebrating in an area they know and love.

Being so close to Christmas, they created a festive feasting feel for their pub reception with lush greenery and gold origami crane place cards. Grace & Thorn decorated the tables and mantlepieces with green garlands interwoven with winter fruits. Samantha wore a stunning figure hugging knitted dress with a plunging neckline and exaggerated sleeve with splits to the wrist by Solace London. A gorgeous, modern, intimate wedding & a lovely way to end my year. Here are a few previews from this beautiful, autumnal winter wedding.
