With a mix of traditions and non-traditions

One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: An elegant yet laid-back mix of US and UK traditions—with a few of our own to boot!

Soundtrack for reading: “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Eels


We were an English bride and American groom who live in Germany and planned a wedding in England. Our mix of traditions (and non-traditions) worked particularly well since our guests were from many different countries and so nobody really knew what to expect.

Favorite Thing about the wedding

Neither of us had given much thought to the ceremony itself, other than that it was something we’d have to get through without crying—but it turned out to be our favorite part of the day. We couldn’t stop grinning and the only ones crying were the guests. And the carrot cake after dinner was awesome!
