A London station wedding - report 9th September 2017
Hi all! Like many here, I didn't get round to doing a planning thread but I am going to do a report to pass on a few words of wisdom and share some of our lovely memories, as I got a lot of very useful advice and support here and hope some of this might be useful to others.
Names: Alex and Niall
Backstory: We met at N's first wedding (his late wife sadly had cancer when they married), became friends through his wife, went through the very tragic stage of losing her, continued to be friends, and a decent amount of months later realised we were just meant to be together. I'm no spring chicken but I've never really been in love properly before, and it was the rightest of all the right things.
After just over a year together he proposed, one morning at home, and we decided to get married within 12 months to allow us time to lose weight (ha!) and organise and plan for the event, but not to hang around too much (life is too short).
We had a civil ceremony at St Pancras Station in London, on the upper level by the Betjeman statue (it's part of Searcy's champagne bar and a licensed venue). After a champagne reception there we moved on to a pub in Primrose Hill, the Princess of Wales, for the wedding breakfast and then the evening reception.
Key details out of the way, let's go back to the few weeks before the wedding.....
