Chelsea chic for Alyson and Lee's wedding day

25 JUNE 2012

On the afternoon of April 28, Alyson and Lee Thornton Clark were married on Chelsea Embankment.

The happy couple were joined in union by the Reverend Canon David Reindorp TB in front of family and dear friends.

Despite the wedding taking place during the wettest April for more than 100 years, the weather held out for the happy couple who describe their day as "simply magical." 



The ceremony took place in the stunning Chelsea Old Church which is steeped in history - it was the venue for Henry VIII's marriage to Jane Seymour.

However, Alyson and Lee based their vows on a rather different ethos to that of Henry VIII. The couple chose touching lines from A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh when Piglet said to Pooh: "If you live to be 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you."

Alyson walked down the aisle to Handel's rousing Zadok The Priest performed by the organist and choir of Chelsea Old Church.

After the couple exchanged their vows, guests were treated to a sumptuous feast at the iconic Bluebird Restaurant on the King's Road, Chelsea. They dined on Assiette of Salmon, Fillet Steak au poivre and Pear Tarte Tatin which the newly-weds were delighted with.
