On a bicycle made for two – Laura and Johnny

This wedding was beautifully relaxed and elegant with a subtle bicycle theme based on the bride and groom’s love of cycling and sport.

Their pictures were captured by Jo Hughes with Captive Photography. Here are some of our favourite shots to give you a sense of what they did inside the Palace on their day.

We most loved the shots which saw their entrance to the marquee past the Tait Chapel. Here they are being ‘piped’ to their reception where their guests await them.

The unique Tait Chapel makes for a wonderful backdrop as the couple made their way through to the marquee for their wedding breakfast which is a popular choice for dinner for couples here at the Palace.

One of the most popular choices for a wedding reception at Fulham Palace is to start the celebrations with a drinks reception in the Tudor Courtyard. This offers the perfect opportunity for mingling and consumption of plenty of bubbles.

The courtyard is also drenched in sunshine late afternoon which is perfect for weddings all year round; yet it also offers shade for those hotter days which ensures your guests will be comfortable whatever the weather.

As day turns to night the atmosphere in the Tudor Courtyard changes completely with the assistance of Effect Event.

Johnny and Laura conveyed their wonderfully relaxed attitude through every element of their wedding.

The marquee decor was simple and subtle complimenting the surrounding gardens, the clear marquee walls brought the outside in and their wedding flowers were an asset to the beauty of the walled garden.

One of our favourite features was the tandem bicycle atop their four tiered wedding cake.

They also gave wooden pegs as wedding favours which were marked with a small black tandem silhouette; we’re sure they will be used by guests for many years to come and remind them of the wonderful day. Laura even expressed her Finnish heritage by giving Finnish sweets to the guests which was such a lovely way to tie in her family background.

Johnny and Laura captured the essence of Fulham Palace using the variety of spaces to their full advantage filling them with laughter and smiles. Their photos represent perfectly how wonderful the venue can be for a wedding reception.
