Multinational wedding at the Lensbury – London

London Wedding - Lovely sunny weekend for the wedding at the Lensbury and this normally means a fairly chilled evening till the temperature drops. Not so for this wedding, having 300 guests and a free bar obviously helped in getting the party going from the first dance.
