Matilda and Pete’s Wedding Reception

Saturday, 30th November 2019

At The Old Finsbury Town HallRosebery Avenue , London, EC1R 4RP

A couple that love skiing; Matilda and Pete reflected this in their beautiful winter wedding. The cake mirrored a village in the mountains which was the first link to their passion for skiing. The finishing touches that embedded this passion were the table names, all ski resorts that they had both skied at together.

The majestic building and with its amber colours, the interior of The Old Finsbury Town Hall was the perfect setting and hosted them with grandeur. The decorations were chic and elegant; the stunning burgundy flower arrangements on the tables, clustered with small gold candles really set the scene.

A real surprise for the guests was when Chris the very talented magician magically appeared and roamed from table to table wowing Matilda & Pete’s guests.

A winter wedding always feels a little more festive as everyone is starting to gear up for the holiday season.  Most couples who marry in the winter love “a sparkle and twinkly light”!!
