Wedding reception at Leighton House

Simon and Coquita picked two of London's more interesting but lesser known buildings for their wedding.

They were married at Fulham Town Hall in the splendidly ornate Victorian council chamber. With it's wooden panelling and stained glass windows it makes a really unique setting.

Around eighty of the couples family and friends joined them for the marriage ceremony after which everybody climbed aboard two Routemaster buses for a tour of Westminster and the West End.

The eventual destination was Leighton House near Holland Park in Kensington. Instead of sitting down to a wedding breakfast, Simon and Coquita allowed their guests to enjoy the great artworks on display whilst being served Champagne and canap├ęs by the brilliant Bovingdons.

At the end of the evening everybody braved the torrential rain to wave Mr and Mrs Mills off as they headed into the wet night in their eco-friendly pedi-cab.

The newly weds are currently honeymooning in Borneo before starting their married life together in Sierra Leone where Simon is currently working.
