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

Ashley and Daniel – The Fig House, Los Angeles

We have been looking forward to sharing the love on this wedding for a while now…this is one of our all time favourites! Not just because we got to travel to one of our favourite places in America, or managed to fit in visits to the beaches and hikes in the Canyons, but because Daniel and Ashley are just one of the sweetest, kindest, gentlest couples you’ll ever meet…and they are so much in love!!

Daniel was best man to a previous couple we filmed, who were married in London (Sophie and Michael), and it always adds to the day when we’ll get to see people we know again, we immediately felt at home. Indeed Michael was Daniel’s best man this time around. I remember Ashley from that wedding too as she led the surprise flash dance on the dance floor, so we knew it was going to be good before we’d even got there!

Ashley’s family still live in LA, so they both got ready at the gorgeous Mr C Hotel in Beverly Hills, and had their beautiful first look on the roof terrace with amazing views of the LA skyline in the distance. Ashley looked stunning in her elegant, floaty dress and Jimmy Choo‘s, while Daniel looked handsome in his dark blue suit. They just beamed when they saw each other and I hold my hands up to shedding a little tear (very quietly!). They were both so relaxed, calm and considerate, such a pleasure to be around.

From Mr C’s, we headed to the wedding venue across town. I’d seen The Fig House before and was so excited to be filming a wedding there, it’s a great space. Ashely and Daniel had the wonderful ladies from So Happi Together organising the day…they were the best! They made our job easy and they were funny at the same time…what more could you want from a wedding planner?!

A family friend conducted the moving ceremony which was followed some amazing cocktails and tunes from The Flash Dance DJ Michael.We were joined by Max and friends photographers, whose work is beautiful. We loved working with you and hope our paths cross again somewhere!

We loved this wedding so much, the day flew for us and it felt like it had been a couple of hours….always a good sign. Ashley and Daniel, we wish you so much luck in your future together, thank you for being so lovely and in love..we’ll see you in Colorado! xx
