Showcase Wedding – Always Andri
Today we are delighted to showcase a wedding designed and planned by one of our Regional Ambassadors, Andri Benson of Always Andri Wedding Design. Over to you Andri…..
When Nic and Rich first approached me to help them plan their wedding they knew they wanted something different as they were keen to have a really laid back informal day all at one London wedding venue.
After an extensive search I found them the fabulous Royal Geographical Society which not only gave us the flexible spaces to create the relaxed vibe they were after but also fitted their travel wedding theme.
For the ceremony I created an autumnal coloured ribbon backdrop and guests were seated on benches. Following the ceremony we rearranged the benches into informal seating areas around the food stations-each one representing their favourite cuisines-curry, fajitas and burgers-that guests could put together themselves.
Nic and Rich were a wonderful couple to work with and they had these words of wisdom to pass onto other couples:
“Hire a wedding planner! It was definitely the best thing we did considering what a nightmare it could have been planning it while living in different cities. It would have made our precious weekends together all about wedding details. We both loved the planning process and Andri kept us excited about it the whole way through”
Andri Benson is one of our Regional Ambassadors for London and Southeast.
