Louise Roe and Mackenzie Hunkin tied the knot on October 1st in England, and Martha Stewart Weddings was there! The TV host and fashion blogger behind Front Roe met her director husband while filming a show six years ago—ironically setting up couples on blind dates. The celebration began with a ceremony inside the magnificent Eton College Chapel. A choir sang inside the stunning 15th-century building, a place where the groom often went as a child.
As the couple spun off in a retro Mercedes convertible, traditional red London buses took the 150-strong guest list to the elegant reception (passing the Queen's official residence at Windsor Castle along the way!) at the Tudor-era house, Dorney Court. Next came the couple's favorite cocktails crafted by Holy Water on the lawn, followed by dinner inside the tent, cooked by Mackenzie's childhood best friend and esteemed chef, Steven Edwards. As the fall leaves were turning outside, the couple chose a warm, autumnal palette to set the scene. Above three long tables hung an elaborate botanical display of kumquats, hanging vines, and flickering candles, created by local florists Lavender Green Flowers.
Event planners Savile Rose put together the entire event and helped the couple design the space, which consisted of areas being revealed throughout the night in a progressive fashion. Surprise performances were also a treat to guests who sipped on a selection of Californian wines from Winc and later enjoyed a cake made by the bride's friend, Juliet Sear. Dancing went into the wee hours, with late-night (or rather, early morning) pizza fueling the crowd, much to everyone's delight.
