How to make a mini wedding look luxury!

Behold a guide on how to make your mini wedding look like luxury!

You want to have an intimate celebration of love but you want to know how to make a mini wedding look luxury? Well, look no further!

In a nutshell, my advice is for you to not hold back on the suppliers that matter to you.

Just because your guest numbers are small in number, should not mean you cut back on quality.

Having a mini-wedding can mean you have more of a budget for the luxury you deserve!

Book a luxe hotel for your photobackdrops


Kitt and Danah’s day began with getting ready at the Landmark Hotel. If you are getting married at the Marylebone Town Hall this is a great choice for two reasons!

First, it is a 2-minute walk (in heels) from the town hall, and second, if it is pouring rain or freezing cold, the grand staircase in the high palm courtyard is a great plan B for family formals. It is beautiful and also warm and dry!

If you are wondering how to make a mini wedding look luxury, the Landmark Hotel offers beautiful backdrops. It is the perfect example of investing in a space even if you live locally.

It might be a short wedding but your photos are forever!

Danah invested in an incredible hair and makeup artist who I love to work with. Just because you aren’t having a full-day wedding, your photos are forever! Vendors like this are worth their weight in gold. If you are having a winter wedding, then double the value because you are wind and rain resistant!

The Marylebone Town Hall is also an excellent town hall choice if you want to add splendor to your wedding photo gallery. The creamy stone columns are beautiful all year round so season proof!

Keeping things local can help you to stay stress-free when it comes to logistics. Feeling calm and happy shows in your photos so always plan for keeping things like logistics simple for the best results.

Kitt & Danah hired a small room above the Harcourt Pub which we got to by flagging a black cab down and took just a few minutes. It was raining or we might have walked!

Do not cut corners on quality

Danah said she refused to cut corners on flowers and spoiled herself with a beautiful fireplace arrangement and table decor. Besides the usual bouquet and buttonholes!

This is another answer to how to make your mini wedding look luxury, do not scrimp and save on visuals that are part of your forever photos.

Dine and feast surrounded by beauty because these are core memories.
