Ayla and Feti – Manor by the Lake

Have been looking forward to blogging this highlight! Beautiful Ayla and Feti got married in an outdoor ceremony at the gorgeous Manor by the Lake, Cotswolds, surrounded by family and friends. The day was swinging between thunderous downpours of rain and bright sunshine, but the luck of Gods were on their side and they managed to have their ceremony in the sun.

Ayla looked stunning in her lace Pronovias dress and Jimmy Choo shoes, while Feti chose Hugo Boss for his suit. The whole wedding was styled by the super talented Knot and Pop wedding planners, who as always, did an amazing job and really managed to reflect Ayla and Feti’s Turkish Cypriot heritage. Vervain were the florists on the day and their work was beautiful…so in love with the olive branch leaves and peach colours.

The evening saw confetti canons, live music and some wonderful Turkish dancing…the dance floor was packed!

M and J Photography joined us on the day, who were a delight to work with….hope we meet again somewhere! You can see some of the wedding here on Ruffled Blog….

Thanks so much for having us with you on the day, it was an absolute pleasure. Wishing you lots of luck and one in your future together xx

 

 

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

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

 

 

 

Susie and Stuart – Brocket Hall

Well, what a wedding to kick off the New year of blogging! Susie and Stuart were married at the elegant and lovely Brocket Hall, Herts, and it was clear right from the start that they had made a huge effort on their wedding….it looked completely amazing. Everything from the flowers by Jamie Aston, Susie’s Jenny Packham dress and Jimmy Choo shoes and Stuarts dapper Stuart Lamprell suit had been chosen to compliment the elegant, timeless and beautiful surroundings…it really was a good looking day!

Susie had an amazing team getting her get ready, not that she needs much help…with Severin Hubert on hair and Sarah Brock on make up, and what a job they did! Anushe Low was photographer on the day and she was a dream to work with – thank you Anushe.  Lots of music accompanied the day with the amazing Steve Christie on Piano and the equally amazing Matt Maurice kicking the evening party off….and what a party it was.

As well as this wedding just looking so beautiful, there was more to it than that…Stuart and Susie are an incredibly warm, happy, fun, caring and genuine couple, who made our job so easy on the day. They were surrounded by so many people who thought the world of them and you could just feel the happiness on the day. This is what made the wedding truly a great one…we loved every minute and wish you both so much happiness in your future together xx

Olivia and Zeb – Four Seasons, Hampshire

Wow, what a happy, smiley, vibrant, fun, loving, family wedding. Olivia and Zeb really did have an amazing day and were surrounded by their wonderful family whom they hold dearly, and rightly so so, they were all an absolute pleasure to be around. They also had a huge amount of friends there which always adds lots of energy and fun to a wedding…they got the balance just perfectly!  Now Olivia is obviously a natural in front of the camera (sports fans will recognise her instantly from Sky Sports!)…but she did look completely stunning in her wedding dress, (with train…the train was BIG!) and sparkly Jimmy Choos. Zeb, who we’d met before as he DJ’d the night away at a wedding, scrubbed up pretty well too in black tie…always a good look!

Their wedding and reception was held at The Four Seasons, Hampshire, and we were blessed with beautiful sunny weather for their outdoor wedding ceremony in the pretty walled garden. It was a great venue, staff were helpful and friendly and the reception room was a perfect setting for the evening dancing..which for the record was pretty wild…we LOVED it!  The band they had chosen played a huge part in this and they too were a pleasure to be around – Get Funked…indeed we did!

Photographer on the day was the very lovely John from Reprtageby. He was such a great person to work alongside and I hope our paths cross again one day – thanks for making me tea too!

We had an amazing, fun and happy time filming you both, I hope we bump into you again somewhere, but we wish you lots of luck and love for your future together xx
