Alexa & Cody

Alexa and Cody's intimate wedding at The Gherkin was a true expression of luxury and style. Jane Riddle, from Planned for Perfection, orchestrated every detail flawlessly, ensuring that the day unfolded seamlessly against the backdrop of London's skyline.

The day began with preparations at the exquisite Corinthia Hotel, where Alexa was adorned in a stunning Galia Lahav dress famously worn by Beyoncé for her vow renewal. As they made their way to The Gherkin, anticipation filled the air. This intimate wedding soared to new heights, quite literally, as the beautiful couple exchanged personal vows in the clouds in an intimate ceremony with their closest loved ones, making a joke or two about their mutual love for body building and the gym! A stunning floral display by Paula Rooney, featuring an abundance of pink and white roses, added a touch of romance and elegance to the breathtaking setting.

Alexa and Cody continued their celebration with a delightful wedding breakfast set up on a grand banqueting table, featuring a menu with a British twist that delighted the guests' taste buds. The atmosphere was further elevated by the enchanting melodies of The Juke Joints, a roaming band that serenaded the couple and their guests throughout dinner. The evening culminated in a magical moment as The Juke Joints kicked off the party with Alexa and Cody's first dance, creating an electrifying ambiance that set the stage for a night filled with joy and celebration.

The combination of luxurious surroundings, exquisite florals, and meticulous planning created a truly magical atmosphere for Alexa and Cody's special day, making it an unforgettable celebration of love and commitment.
