Social media manager Rebekah married her love Adam, who is Head of Development in TV, on 16th April 2022 at Hampton Court House in London.
This beautiful, inspirational spring wedding was bursting with color and seasonal blooms, courtesy of floral designer, Bloom East. The bride wore a beautiful, contemporary gown created by Clover London and a tulle bow headpiece by Rebecca Anne Designs.

Bridal Beauty and Accessories
I ADORED the bow in my hair. I knew I didn’t want a traditional veil and toyed with the idea of a headband or a big scrunchie, but it just so happens that I was scrolling on Instagram, and Rebecca Anne Designs, AKA the queen of bespoke bridal veils, popped up.
I had our wedding date embroidered along the bottom of the bow, while Adam had the date embroidered on the cuff of his shirt — just in case we ever forget! If I could, I would wear the bow to every occasion from now on!
My bag looks like the Shrimps Antonia bag, but it’s actually a handmade one from Etsy for a fraction of the price.
My bridesmaids dresses were from ASOS and my flowergirl and pageboy were dressed in Next.
Carla of CESCA did the hair and make-up for my wedding to perfection. I wanted a natural, fresh look, and I can safely say I’d never looked or felt better. Super friendly, Carla was a calming addition to the morning of the day, and I felt very confident she knew what worked best for me and my bridesmaids.
My shoes were by Rixo, and I wore Lady Million — a classic scent I’ve always had on my shelf. Plus, I had a handy atomiser full of it so I could spritz throughout the day.
With it being a spring wedding, I knew I wanted to go with bold pastels and lots of flowers — but I still wanted it all to feel fresh and clean. Our photographers, The Chamberlins, coined the term ‘colourful minimalism’, and I’ve used this phrase to describe the style ever since. “
Our photographers were The Chamberlins. Both Celle and Will put you entirely at ease and are just all-round lovely people.
They’d already captured some weddings at Hampton Court House, so we completely trusted them and knew they knew their stuff. Their style is relaxed, which suited us down to a T.

How they met
Adam and I met on a dating app called Happn back in December 2015 — very 21st century — but we didn’t actually meet IRL until January 2016. Somehow we managed to continue messaging over the Christmas holidays and decided to meet in the New Year.
As all good love stories begin, we bonded over having just discovered mice in our flat shares. And the rest, they say, is history…
Fast forward to September 2020. I was turning 30, and Adam had booked a surprise trip away to Babington House in Somerset. We were in the middle of buying a house, so I wasn’t even thinking about marriage, and it genuinely didn’t cross my mind that he might propose.
The night before my birthday, we went back to the room after our evening meal, and it took me completely by surprise. As I wasn’t wearing my glasses, I didn’t even know what he was showing me at first, but I quickly worked it out, and I think I went into shock.
We decided to wait till 2022 to get married in the hope that the pandemic and any restrictions would have eased, and I’m so glad we did.
Adam’s shirt had the wedding date embroidered on one of the cuffs. His suit, shirt and tie were from 40 colors. His shoes were from Loake.
Words of Wedded Wisdom
I hate being the center of attention and wasn’t sure how I would feel on the day walking down the aisle and saying my vows in front of everyone was my main concern. But something happened: as soon as I got to the venue, I suddenly loved the limelight and felt like an A-list Hollywood star.
When I reached Adam at the end of the aisle, I immediately felt so at ease and happy! You’re so in the moment that you forget there are lots of people behind you.
So my advice would be: take a deep breath and enjoy every second. It was the best day of our lives, and I wish we could do it all over again!
Also, when people told us the day goes by really fast, it ACTUALLY does go by really fast! Make sure to grab some time for you and your new husband/wife to take it all in.
Also, if you can, supply a free bar. It’ll make sure the guests enjoy the day 40% more.
