An Art-Deco London Wedding with Black & Gold DIY Details

London's been my home for nearly twenty years now {apart from a brief sojourn in Dubai}, so I've got something of a soft spot for a wedding hosted here. Tom and Cecily celebrated their marriage with two ceremonies - one in the US, and the second at St Paul's Shadwell followed by a cream tea and dinner at the Dickens Inn. As an American, you can understand Cecily's love for historic London, and it's something we should all embrace. Her photography Lily Sawyer took advantage of all the capital's stunning landmarks for their wedding pictures - don't miss them in Part 2 of this wedding, which I'll publish later this afternoon. Enjoy these shots - there's plenty of lovely details, including Tom's traditional three-piece suit, Cecily's fragrant white-on-white bouquet, her 1920's-stylepretty pearl accessories and elegant chignon.

Love Lockets for your Wedding Day

Is there anything more whimsically romantic than a locket? First fashionable in Elizabethan times, they were worn by men and women. Now they're making a comeback - as a wedding day gift from the groom to his bride, or as presents for bridesmaids. Some brides are even tie lockets to their bouquets in memory of a lost loved one, to keep them close as they walk down the aisle. Who's picture would you put in your locket? My favourites include a miniature monogrammed locket from CatBird {in gold, pictured below}, and this vintage-style oval from Fraser Hart. P.S. My favourite bouquet bloom of all time has to be lily-of-the-valley, but it's only available in May!

They've roped in Matthew Williamson - who's famed for his gorgeous prints, so it's no surprise his designs feature bold colours, luscious blooms, palm fronds and his eponymous peacocks.
