It’s such a pleasure to share Cathy and Luke’s very lovely Fulham Palace wedding on the blog today.
Feel the Love
Cathy and Luke grew up only 500 metres away from each other in a small village in Northern Ireland. However, they only met once they both moved to London and a cousin introduced them.
Their families travelled from Northern Ireland to join Cathy and Luke for their big day. Whilst it was a fairly small wedding, I have rarely been in a room filled with so much love and joy. Everybody seemed to be best friends with everyone else, regardless of age. It was really lovely and inspirational to be a part of such a warm and generous celebration.
A Bagpiper Surpise
Cathy and Luke got married in their local church – St Paul’s at Onslow Square. The ceremony was very personal and heartfelt, with lots of enthusiastic singing and friends and family leading the prayers. Cathy and Luke surprised their guests with a bagpiper who lead them out of the church.
Fulham Palace Wedding
We then moved on (on a red London bus) to the charming Fulham Palace, which despite having lived in Putney for a while I have never had the pleasure to visit.
The historic countryhouse with its wood panelling, pretty fountains and striking fireplaces, made for a fantastic backdrop for Cathy and Luke’s wedding. It’s also a place which is just around the corner from their home and where they have spent many happy hours together. The beautiful Tudor courtyard was the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of Aperol Spritz on a sunny June afternoon.
Cathy and Luke, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wonderful wedding (and for leaving me with a warm and fuzzy feeling when I left at the end of the day). I’m sure you will be very happy together.
