Venue Visits : the DESIGN MUSEUM

Can we just say how EXCITED we are to have London slowly reopening! YAY! What a year it has been for all of us. The events industry was hit hard by the effects of Covid-19 and all of us are beyond excited to get back to planning your event and celebrating after over a year of closing our doors multiple times. I thought now would be a perfect time to restart with sharing venues in the city that we love. So many couples are looking for London venues for their micro weddings or future larger weddings and we are excited to share this venue with you today, the Design Museum!

The Design Museum is a special place to us as the team there is amazing and we have produced some amazing events there. It was exciting to hear that the museum now has their license to be able to host civil ceremonies onsite, which means you can now host your wedding ceremony and your reception at this very fabulous London Museum. If you are not familiar with this gorgeous space then do check out their site here for more information.

The Design Museum is located on the corner of Holland Park, right off of High Street Kensington and a short walk from the underground station of High Street Kensington or Earls Court station. The museum offers four contemporary spaces you can use for your ceremony and four for your reception and wedding breakfast. The spaces are iconic and modern and I like to use the words, fresh & crisp. The spaces provide a beautiful, almost blank space, to add your individual create touch to the venue.

Event Space : The Atrium

I love this space because of the dramatic ceilings that are triple height of the venue. The Atrium is large and can seat 150 guests for a seated evening meal or get creative and seat guests around on the balcony and dance the night away on the ground floor.

Event Space : The Helene & Johannes Huth Gallery

This space has floor to ceiling windows that overlook Holland Park. The Helene & Johannes Huth Gallery is so lovely for a larger ceremony space before heading into the Atrium or as a setting for your wedding breakfast before heading into the Atrium for your evening reception! Truly a space you can make your own!

Event Spaces : The Chumsri & Luqman Lounge and The Sachs Family Park Room

Both of these spaces are intimate but are amazing for a smaller more intimate micro celebration. A perfect pairing to host your ceremony in one and a smaller reception in the other. Both with floor to ceiling windows on one side leading out to the park, they are a hidden gem within the museum.

Reasons We Love It Here:

The museum is modern and contemporary and one of the most sought-after venues in London! The venue hosts hundreds of corporate and private events yearly so I am so excited to see that it can now host weddings there also.

There are multiple event space options to fit to your particular needs. The venue is not a cookie cutter space at all.

We love the location of the venue. Right off of High Street Kensington providing guests easy accessibility to the venue but also on the corner of Holland Park providing a stunning backdrop. The park is also a lovely location to escape for some wedding photos.

The list of approved suppliers is truly top notch. Check it out here.

The Design Museum is a modern and grand place to host your party! We love it and would love to work with you there! Let us know if you want to sit down and talk about plans, we would love to meet you. Contact here!

Real London Weddings : Katie & Vey

When a couple comes to you and describes their wedding day as wanting to be fun, non traditional, pops of colour and a celebration, you know it is going to be a fun day! Katie and Vey came to me after selecting their venue at the Bingham Riverhouse but not knowing where to start with styling it and creating the playful, fun day they wanted to create. They had recently welcomed their second little one into their lives and the idea of planning their wedding day with flowers and details and decor was more then they could handle, which was a PERFECT reason to bring in a wedding planner and stylist! All I can say is, they were beyond a joy to work with. An intimate ceremony at the absolutely stunning Octagon Room in the Orleans Gallery , a boat ride along the Thames, drinks in the Garden followed by the party inside the newly refurbished Riverhouse Riverside room, oh and lets not forget an afternoon full of party activities for the little ones supplied by the wonderful  The Little Top I think the day was the perfect mix of family, friends, celebration and fun!

The couple encouraged their guests to wear sunny colourful shades on the wedding day. The lovely citrus hued bridesmaid dress was the perfect colour for their day! You know it is going to be a fun wedding when the couple asks the designer to sketch a custom Llama couple on their programs! Jennifer’s Paper you brought their brief to life!

Bubblegum Balloons and Bloomologie colloborated for the perfect photo backdrop in the garden. A bright and colourful bench that incorporated their colour scheme perfectly. 

The newly refurbished River Room had a POP of colour with the change of linens, glassware and flowers that we added. A little touch of details and it was colourful without being too bright! And how about the great new chairs at the venue, I love these! Bloomologie created gorgeous meadows that we added to the ceremony and then added throughout the dinner which were perfect summery and cheerful!

To add a bit of fun we tied the escort cards on a “bird tree”, which most guests ended up clipping to their attire for the day as a fun accessory. Because the kids were a huge part of the day, we decided to add a fun element to their escort card and gave them tambourines which they shook as the Bride and Groom entered the reception. They were a fun takeaway gift for kids at the end of the day as well! 

See, the kids activities were even enjoyed by the adults! Hello adorable pink guitar!

When a client tells you their sister will make the cake you sometimes question what will arrive, however this one was ACE! Look at the gorgeous watercolour cake that the brides sister created for big day, so sweet! And the lovely Clare with Little Bear Cakery    added on some beautiful and delicious desserts to bring the entire dessert table together. It was an abundance of treats for everyone!

Thank you to Katie and Vey for having me be a big part of your wedding day. It was such a pleasure! Oh …..and did I mention the bride wore pink. Not just a smidge, a cloud of pink tulle that was fab!

Weddings at 116 Pall Mall

A few months ago I made the announcement on Instagram about the very exciting partnership I have at an amazing London wedding venue. I can not believ I never got around to sharing it over here. With a busy summer schedule of events, things just flew by! Below I am sharing a little bit about the wonderful partnership that I have at 116 Pall Mall, a classic and gorgeous London events and wedding venue! The location is fabulous, the venue is grand and lovely, it truly is such a gem in the city for a wedding and I am excited that Rebecca K. Events is a part of it. {Photo by Cecelina Photography}

116 Pall Mall is a beautiful London wedding venue located in the centre of the city, right near the Mall heading to Buckingham Palace. This venue offers so many options for spaces both inside and outside for a wedding and I am excited to be planning and styling lovely couples big day at this historic London gem. So you may be wondering, does Rebecca K. Events plan events in other venues now, yes yes yes we do! If you confirm your wedding at 116 Pall Mall we are the in house planning and styling team that will be able to assist you with adding the details to your big day, coordinating all of the suppliers and adding the unique touches to make it personal to you.

There is a big difference of being an onsite wedding coordinator and an independent wedding planner and designer. Often when you book your wedding at a venue the inhouse coordinator will be selling and servicing many other events and will not have the time to focus on the special touches that makes your day special for you. This is where we come in! We will show you the venue and discuss which spaces work best for what you are looking for. Once you contract at the venue we are there to assist with suggesting suppliers that fit your budget and style, create dedicated style boards to your look and coordinate the day for you from start to finish. We will be there when you arrive until you start to dance and allow you to relax all day long while we style your day just right. We are lucky to  have such a wonderful team behind us at the venue that helps put it all together. Together we  make it all perfect while Rebecca K. Events gives it the bit more attention to detail that a wedding couple is looking for.
