Kristian and Sophia’s Balham Bowls Club wedding is full of personal touches. The couple chose to fuse both old and new traditions on their day. They has their wedding ceremony at the Catholic church of Our Lady Help of Christians (also known as St Mary’s) in Blackheath. Their reception took place at the quirky, Antics pub the Balham Bowls Club, just a stones throw away from Clapham. Kristian and Sophia enjoyed a ceremony among close friends and family followed by an eclectic reception complete with a vintage ballroom. They even made time for a London bus tour in between! The ballroom provided a beautiful, warm and intimate backdrop for their wedding reception. A banquet style dinner ensured a lively atmosphere followed by a fantastic 5 piece band. The night was topped off by sending a lucky lady home with a Bouquet of fresh flowers!
