Lonika Chande, 30, married Theodore Hall, 31, in London on December 9, 2017. She says: We knew we wanted to get married in London – it’s where we met and it’s home.

The next job was to find a venue that we could put our own stamp on. As an interior designer, I wanted it to convey warmth without feeling obviously Christmassy, and to nod to my heritage. The colours and patterns from this Pinterest image made me think of my past travels to India and helped to shape the day. I came up with a palette of rich and vibrant ambers, greens, aubergines and mustard. As Trinity Buoy Wharf has its own pier, we hired a Thames Clipper to transport guests to the ceremony – and a Rajasthani taxi from Karma Kabs for my dad and me, as he used to drive one when I was little.
