You can probably tell from the pictures that I am a very big fan of squidgy-licious toddlers and lustrous beards, for the very shallow reason that I have them too (in my life, I don’t actually have a beard, though my body sure did make a good attempts at a nice fine blonde one during pregnancy, thanks hormones!). I was so pleased to have this wedding explode into the middle of my grey long winter. Such a super cool, confident, no-drama couple. After the short, sweet but heartfelt ceremony at the classic Chelsea Registery Office, we all walked round the corner to the laid-back but still very Chelsea pub, the Coopers Arms. Once suitably refreshed we all piled into the big red bus which took us to one of my favourite London venues, Trinity Buoy Wharf, home of London’s only lighthouse. The Chainstore was transformed with olive trees and fairy lights into something both cosy and airy, perfect for fine food, great speeches, delicious cocktails and good times. Steve told me that his only real request for the wedding was to have a Mariachi band, and they nailed it. I think I need to have a Mariachi band at my wedding.
