Filled with beautiful floral arrangements and the dress of dreams, Charlotte and James' big day at The Brewery in London was complete with a sky full of stars! We caught up with them to talk about the perfect Prezola gifts, house renovations and their dreamy Italian getaway.
How did you both meet?
We met through a mutual friend nearly six years ago, before going on a night out to the iconic Ministry of Sound. We grew closer and the rest as they say is history.
What's your favourite thing to do together on the weekend?
We like to leave the hustle and bustle of London and go for long hikes and walks, stopping off at country pubs along the way.
One thing we did before we got married and still do now is...
Make sure that we spend time just the two of us, date nights or just evenings in together. Whilst James has been studying to become a qualified accountant, it was and is important to make time for each other.
What has surprised you most about being married?
That nothing has changed!
Tell us all about your honeymoon!
We spent nearly a month travelling around Italy, starting off in Lake Como, then to Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome and ending in Sorrento. We got engaged in Tuscany, so we knew that we would want to go back and spend more time there.
How would you describe your interior style?
We have just moved into a 1930’s cottage style house which we are currently renovating. Our style is minimal with some modern Nordic twists.
What item were you most excited to receive from your gift list?
I was most excited to receive The White Company aperture frame, it now features 52 amazing photos from our wedding day. James was most excited for the new pots and pans as we were definitely in need of an upgrade!
Tell us all about your Prezola delivery day!
We had just moved into our new home which had pretty much no furniture. The Prezola boxes filled up our front room. Each gift was so nicely wrapped up. We couldn’t wait to unwrap them all.
Is there a gift you wish you had added to your gift list but didn't?
We spent a lot of time selecting all the best things for our list so we were definitely happy with all our choices!
What product on your list best sums up your style as a couple?
I think the honeymoon tours we added to our list shows our adventurous side as a couple. We added Kayaking in Lake Como, which we did on the first day of our honeymoon, it was pretty amazing!
What was your favourite part of your wedding day?
Our first dance, which was to “A Sky Full of Stars”. The lights went down and stars were projected around the room. And we got to reflect just the two of us how amazing the day had been before all our friends and family joined us on the dancefloor.
What 3 words best describe you as a couple?
Adventurous, loyal and laidback.
Did you add any experience days to your wedding gift list?
We added a few tours for our honeymoon, from the gondola ride in Venice to a day trip to Pompeii. Which we couldn’t wait to do, and were definite highlights of our honeymoon.
