'I just love pink!' says magazine beauty editor Elizabeth Barnett, 34, of her wedding to 40-year-old banker Paul Lawton. 'It was a city wedding, but we didn't want it to seem too English and stuffily formal. I wanted Moroccan touches to add that relaxed, summer feel, even though it was a September wedding. The bright pink and gold created a vibrant look and we had a gourmet buffet rather than a traditional sit-down dinner.'
The ceremony was held at St Luke's church, a five-minute walk from the Chelsea garden square outside Paul's family house where the marquee was set up. 'One of my favourite moments was when I reached the top of the aisle,' says Elizabeth. 'Paul had been watching me walk towards him and just mouthed "wow". I couldn't stop smiling.'
Guests then moved to the square where trees were decorated with fairy lights and flame torches lit up the path. Champagne and Pimm's were served outside before the gourmet buffet was held in the marquee. 'The DJ played until we headed into the house at 10.30pm for drinks in the library,' says Elizabeth.
