Meet Vivian and Alistair — he’s English, she’s Californian. They met in Las Vegas, live in Berlin and were married in London. (Vivian’s actually from really near where SP’s Christopher grew up, in the east of Los Angeles. Her Angeleno family and friends made us feel fantastically at home, all the way over in the east of London.)

They chose Dirty Bones in Shoreditch for their wedding reception because the lavender martinis are so delicious, but the food was pretty wondrous, too. If half the guests have travelled from the other side of the world, it’s important to feed them right, and any wedding with mac ‘n’ cheese balls at the reception is more than all right by us.
