Ask us where to get ready for your wedding. Really, please do! We love boutique hotels. I’ve been half photographer and half travel writer ever since finishing my journalism degree a billion years ago (senior editor for Mr & Mrs Smith here, hi!) Basically, we can give you the pro tips.

Anyway, one couple who made an excellent choice of wedding HQ without any help whatsoever were the other Rachel and Chris, who clearly have first-class taste in pretty much everything as well as having the same names as us. Artist Residence London is a perfectly picturesque spot for prepping pre-wedding, and you can see the rest of Rachel and Chris' Marylebone and Clerkenwell wedding here.

(And while we're talking of Artist Residence, I reviewed their Brighton outpost for Mr & Mrs Smith back in the day, too. If you’re ever in Brighton and need a drink, make a beeline for Regency Square and look for the pink neon.)
