Louise MacCallum, 33, married Jesse Boyce, 35, in St Peter's Church in Notting Hill, West London, followed by a reception at 20th Century Theatre on 31 May 2014. She says:


"As born-and-bred Londoners, we had to have a London wedding! It's only a three-minute walk from the church to the venue, so we hired a marching band to accompany us along the way - it brought Portobello Road to a complete standstill!

The flowers reflected the day's theme of '30s Hollywood glamour. My 'bouquet' was a single, pink Secret Garden rose, while the church was lined with a variety of pink and white roses, and foliage.

For our wedding menu, we served canapés with a British twist, including mini toad-in-the-holes. We also had posh fish 'n' chips, wrapped in fake newspapers - created by Jesse, who's a graphic designer - with hilarious stories and photos from our stag and hen parties.

Having great entertainment was really important to us. The main band, Fake Tan, covered some killer '80s tracks, while the cheerleaders from my husband's favourite football team (Crystal Palace) made a surprise appearance. The dancefloor was transformed into a nightclub, with DJ Bad Zuke (aka Dan Savage) playing old-school hip-hop and classics... at the same time.

My top tip: Be sure to ask about your venue's decibel limit for live music. Ours was only 90dB, which was too quiet for a band - but we still rocked it!"
