Annette and Lenny met through mutual friends at a dinner party (officially), and fell in love over a whirlwind romance which culminated in a proposal in New York on Annette’s birthday.
These two are those people who are just destined to be successful at anything they turn their hands to; Annette works with the talented team at Etsy UK, while Lenny works tirelessly to bring us the wonder that is Deliveroo! In between jetting around the world, Annette and Lenny have set up a beautiful home at the quiet end of a cosy Ealing mews. It’s been my privilege to be friends with Annette (aka “Betty”!) since we were 11, and to witness her many successes over the years – not least this particular highlight of marrying the lovely Lenny!!
Betty and Lenny got married at their local church, Ealing Abbey, and treated guests to a Routemaster ride through west London to the magnificent Kew Gardens to continue with the wedding celebrations.
From cake cutting at the gorgeous Nash building, to drinks on the lawn by the lake and then in the very cool Princess of Wales conservatory, it was such fun to get a flavour of the versatility of Kew for a beautiful wedding day.
Finally, guests settled in the gorgeous orangery for a delicious feast, followed by entertainment from the Atlantic Soul Orchestra whose beats got guests going on the dance floor!!
Annette and Lenny are just such a sweet and generous couple and we’re so happy to have these two in our lives – we wish them all the very best for an exciting future together!
