Emily and Julian were married in Chelsea Register Office on the King’s Road, and afterwards had a Daphnes Conservatory wedding reception in nearby South Kensington.

Guests included Emily’s brother, Julian’s sister and eleven close friends. Chelsea’s Rossetti Room is an intimate ceremony room, ideal for this number of guests. Emily wore a very elegant navy blue, knee length lace dress with smart off-white long jacket and carried a pretty cream rose and freesia bouquet. Julian wore a matching navy suit with cream rose buttonhole. The Registrar clearly got on very well with the couple during their pre-ceremony meeting as plenty of laughter could be heard coming from the interview room.

After their ceremony the couple caught a cab to nearby Daphne’s Restaurant on Draycott Avenue (a 5 minute journey) where they held a short drinks reception in Daphne’s stunning Conservatory room. Daphne’s Conservatory can accommodate up to forty guests for a private lunch or dinner. The room comes with candles and place cards meaning the only thing that you need to provide is flowers. Emily and Julian had chosen green and cream tulips, hydrangeas, dianthus and viburnum to match their colour scheme. Julian loves wines and had chosen the selections with great care. The canapes looked delicious and Daphne’s has a fantastic reputation for providing classic Italian cuisine. The atmosphere, staff and food combine to make this a great venue for special occasions.

Everyone started showing Emily and Julian photographs that they had taken on their phones during and after the ceremony and the reactions were priceless. Julian’s reaction to one was very definitely ‘Blue Steel’!
