Sophie and Farhod – Babington House

We’re back at Babington… Yay!!! Always a pleasure to film here and one of our all time favourite venues, who yet again, put on wonderful day for Sophie and Farhod. We loved this wedding so, so much. Sophie and Farhod are such lovely, warm, happy people, it was such a joy to film them and be around their families. They literally didn’t stop smiling the whole day…and dancing…always dancing!

What I loved about them the most was that they didn’t get worried about the day running smoothly, or stressing about the details, or what didn’t go as planned (not that anything didn’t), but instead they just had fun all day, and laughed and cried and smiled and danced. It’s so fabulous to see and you can’t help but smile with them. I loved how Sophie and Farhod had a spontaneous dance on the lawn to Babington DJ Nigel’s tunes. (and I love that they had house music on the lawns in the first place :)) They made their wedding their own by just being themselves and that’s what was so great about the day.

Sophie chose a stunning, unembellished dress by Stephanie Allin Couture, which she paired with a gold belt and gold Jimmy Choo’s. She looked stunning and had a permeant smile on her face all day. Farhod looked handsome in his dark suit and beautiful flowers by Passion and Susie Edwards adorned the tables and ceremony room. Farhod’s family is from Iran originally so they were lucky to have members of their family travel to join them from all over the world. I love weddings with different cultural twists and relatives from the Middle East are guaranteed to bring a bit of glamour and dancing :)  A close friend of the couple, Emily,  made all beautiful the stationary for them…

Great speeches (Farhod’s Dad should do stand up…sorry to encourage him!) were followed by full on dancing in the bar, with the help of Nigel again, who never fails to get everyone dancing. Bella West joined us for photography and she was a pleasure to work with, hope we meet again!

Thank you both for being so fun and alive and full of love. We wish you all the best for your future together and maybe we’ll bump into you dancing on a beach somewhere ;) xx

Charlotte and Gerard – Babington House

It’s been a while but we’ve blogged…and what a beautiful wedding to return with. We adore Babington, it’s our favourite UK venue for so many reasons. The staff are amazing, the food delicious, the decor relaxed and welcoming, but also it just attracts the best couples to hold their weddings there!

Charlotte and Gerard are no exception and we were delighted to come back to Babington to film their wedding. As usual everything looked amazing, ran smoothly and the day was full of smiles, laughter and fun. We even had sunshine!  We got to work with one of our favourite photographers; Amy Murrell, who we get to see a few times each year and it’s always a pleasure.

Charlotte looked elegant and beautiful in her delicate dress by Sarah Seven, finished off with gorgeous Jimmy Choo’s.  Gerard chose a bespoke suit from Tom Fox which complimented Charlotte perfectly. The ever wonderful florists, Passion worked their magic on the day making the place smell and look delightful.

In the evening we were entertained by Atlantica, a brilliant live band, followed by Nigel, the usual Babington House DJ, who took control of the party in the evening, which always means the dance floor is packed and the night rolls on into the early hours (great to see you again!)

Thank you both for being so lovely and easy to work with, it was a joy all day. We wish you lots of luck, health and happiness in your future together xx

Samantha and Andrew – Babington House

Wow, what a wedding! We absolutely loved this one as not only was it at one of our favourite venues, Babington House, where we got to work with our lovely friend and photographer Patrick Bulter Madden again, but Samantha and Andrew were just a joy to film and be around. The wedding was full of energy, music, smiles and dancing…we loved every minute!

Samantha looked totally stunning in her Vera Wang dress, whilst Andrew wore Hugo Boss (and looked sharp!). Samantha’s family was very important to her on the day in what was a very moving and touching ceremony, with Samantha being given away by her Brother Jenson (who also gave a very lovely speech too in place of their much missed Dad)  Guests had travelled all over the globe to be there and it is a testament to the couple that people would travel so far to celebrate their day with them.

As ever, Babington looked amazing and the tables and flowers gorgeous…it really is a wonderful venue to film in (and the staff are always friendly and helpful). The day had lots of music to it with beautiful singing in the church service, followed by the best wedding band EVER..The London Essentials who we keep bumping into at various weddings. They always get everyone singing and dancing and generally having an amazing time. In the evening we had the brilliant Duke Beat Box do a couple of live sets alongside the DJ and live drums…all amazing and we didn’t want to leave! Every wedding needs a party like that :)

We just want to say thank you to Samantha and Andrew for letting us be a part of your day, it’s always such an honour to witness two people start out on their married ice together and we wish you lots of luck and love for the future xx

Sam and Luke – Babington House

Oh, I loved this wedding! Samantha and Luke came back home from Switzerland, where they worked, to get married at the wonderful Babington House, Somerset …which is one of my favourite venues. It’s such a great place for a laid back party; beautiful surroundings, lovely staff, gorgeous food…Yes Please!!

The day was a scorcher  and  Samantha looked completely stunning in her dress by Caroline Castigliano & Jimmy Choo shoes. Luke was dapper  in his suit by Gieves & Hawkes on Saville Row.The beautiful flowers on the day were by Flowers by Passion. Photographer on the day was Brett Harkness and his team…here’s a link to the pics…gorgeous!

They were married in the small chapel in the grounds of Babington, and then spent the afternoon on the lawns, enjoying the sun and relaxing to the sounds of The Buskers…who were fab!

Some of the funniest and most emotional Speeches we’ve filmed followed their meal….there honestly wasn’t a dry eye in the house, including mine and Beccy’s. The whole day reflecetd the genuine and caring nature of the couple, you couldn’t help but love them!

The party continued with some dancing on the lawn before their evening entertainment kicked off in the form of Love 2 Groove. We were treated to some amazing evening light and sunset to finish the day off perfectly.

We want to wish Samantha and Luke all the very best of luck with their new life together and thank you for having us with you on the day, it really was a pleasure xx
