Russell and Daniel tied the knot a year ago today. Having both worked in the bridal industry for years (Daniel for the likes of Ian Stuart and Suzanne Neville and Russell is owner of Blackburn Bridal Couture) they were well accustomed to the world of weddings and just wanted their celebration to be simple, earnest and as fun as possible. They kept things intimate for the ceremony at Chelsea Old Town Hall inviting just close friends and family. Then later, at Locale in Blackheath they had a bigger, louder, glitzy party with a festive nod to 1950’s glamour.
Russell & Daniel, your day was so much fun I remember it vividly. Personal highlights include Russell’s surprise (and full throttle) performance of Whitney Houston’s ‘Greatest Love of All’ to a cringing Daniel, sitting next to my all time hero Claire Pettibone for the dinner and watching Ian Stuart swirling Daniel’s mum round the dance floor. Happy anniversary guys, I hope you’re doing something extra special to celebrate xxxx
