Vanja and Rafa – Mandarin Oriental

First blog post in ages!  We’ve been so busy filming this summer it really has been a challenge to keep the website up to date, but am so excited to be back to sharing some wonderful weddings again….this one especially as Vanja and Rafa had such a beautiful, heartfelt, elegant wedding, a perfect mix of Spanish and English in the heart of London.

Vanja and Rafa got married at The Mandarin Oriental, a truly wonderful venue who always make us feel welcome and their weddings are seamless. They had the expert planning services of Melanie from CranberryBlue Weddings, who are a delight to work with and who’s attention to detail is incredible….so lovely to see you again ladies!

Vanja got ready at home with the super talents of Kate Hughes on hair and makeup….who as always did a stunning job and Vanja looked breath taking.  Rafa got ready at Blakes Hotel which is a fantastic location. He and his fellow grooms men looked great in classic morning suits, a truly elegant affair.

The sun came out and drinks were had on the terrace, we even had a ride past by the Queen’s horse guard for her birthday! I love the fact you are in the heart of London  but surrounded  by greenery, such a great location.

We were joined on the day by Mike Garrad who was the photographer. We meet so many photographers and Mike joined the long list of absolutely wonderful ones to work with…thank you for being so lovely!

Thank you also for having us with you for the day Vanja and Rafa, it was such a pleasure. You, your friends and family made us feel warm and welcome and Rafa’s speeches and real emotions were wonderful to see.  I wish you every happiness in your future together xx

 

 

 

 

Ellie and Ryan – MC Motors, London

This wedding is right up there on party scale…we loved it!!! Ellie and Ryan were a complete joy to be around, and so were all their guests and family..the whole day was one big party from start to finish…how many weddings include Mariachi, bus bingo, tequila go pro, men wearing lipstick, stetsons and nail transfers of the grooms face that have the registrar in hysterics?? Well this one had them all!

Ellie and Ryan got married at one of our favourites…Islington Town Hall, which I think has the most accommodating, friendly registrars we’ve come across, they never fail to be amazing. It was fun filled from the start and the point where they exchanged rings and the registrar spotted the nail transfer will stay with me forever!  Routemasters then took took the guests (with some X-rated bus bingo along the way) to MC Motors for their reception. This is a great venue, allowing couples the space and freedom to style it as they please. They did a marvellous job and it looked amazing. Pretty lights, Mexican details, gorgeous flowers…all set the scene for a top party.

Lots of music followed, with a great band in the afternoon, a Mariachi band in the evening (the ones of the Doritos ad!) and then the classic Wedding Smashers to kick the dancing off. The party was tequila fuelled with a go-pro strapped to the bottle to capture all the mayhem…love it!!

Ellie and Ryan were such a great reminder about what a wedding should be about…mainly fun and happiness. They made sure everyone felt welcome, everyone was happy and above all the whole wedding was full of smiles and laughter. They were also completely relaxed and I don’t think could have cared less if something went wrong, or something was not quite as planned…this was about having a great time with the people they love the most and for that we love you back!! xx

 

Larissa and Andy – Mandarin Oriental, London

A very quick video post of the beautiful Larissa (who hails from Brazil) and Andy’s wedding which took place in central London, with their reception at the ever elegant Mandarin Oriental, Knightsbridge (always a pleasure to film there!) Congratulations both! X

Rezan and David – Orleans House, Twickenham

Having a blog catch up today… with the first of two Scottish influenced posts. The lovely Rezan and David were married at Orleans House gallery, Richmond, on the banks of the river, in a beautiful, touching ceremony, surrounded by their family (including daughter Layla) and friends. They were then led by piper (Davie Quinn) along the river towards Eel Pie Island and Twickenham Rowing club, which makes for an amazing wedding reception. Rezan, David and their friends had worked so hard at decorating the venue, and with it’s views of the sparkly river beyond was just perfect.

The photographers on the day were two of Rezan and David’s friends; Natalie Collins and Lucy Johnson (www.shutterandsketch.com ) who did a great job on the day.  The food and catering was provided by the absolutely heavenly Juliet’s in tunbridge wells (Julietsandmore.com)…this was amazing food – thank you! The flowers were by Divine Flowers, Teddington (No12divineflowers.co.uk) and of course the dress was unmistakably Jenny Packham

Thank you both for being so lovely and happy and thoughtful, we had such a great time filming you all. Your friends and family are a real testament to yourselves and the way you are with people. We wish you all much love and luck in your future together xx

 

Fabi and Jeff – One Whitehall

We were back at one of our favourite wedding venues for Fabi and Jeff’s wedding – One Whitehall, London. This gorgeous wedding is the coming together of two cultures and families…Fabi is from Brazil and Jeff hails from Northampton (or is it Sheffield?…Pulp fans will know what we mean:)). The whole day was fun, happy, beautiful and heartfelt, all set in wonderful, historic surroundings. Fabi and Jeff made us feel welcome as soon as we met them and we love their choice of dress and blue suits…very beautiful.

They were married at St John’s, which is an impressive building in the heart of Islington, route masters then took the guests over to One Whitehall for the reception and evening. We wee accompanied by the ever lovely Jordanna Marston (who we have worked together with at One Whitehall before) and  equally lovely assistant Ross. Jordanna was an old school friend of Jeff’s so the atmosphere was brilliant all day very relaxed and fun…we love working with you Jordanna!

Thanks Fabi and Jeff for being so lovely and fun, we had such a brilliant time meeting you both and filming the day. Wishing you a wonderful future together xx

 

Charlotte and Simon – Islington Town Hall and The Union club, Soho

We were so lucky to be able to film the lovely Charlotte and Simon a couple of weeks ago…they really are a wonderful, gentle, friendly and down to earth couple. They chose to get married at one of our favourite places  – Islington Town Hall (where the staff are just the best!) and then went on to the very cool Union Club in Soho.

Charlotte and Simon planned a happy wedding that reflected them both as a couple, and they were supported by their friends and family (who were equally as lovely and friendly too). Charlotte’s vintage dress was by the wonderful Fur Coat No Knickers, her gorgeous shoes by Charlotte Olympia and hair and make-up by super talented Elbie Bayley…what a team! She looked beautiful. Flowers were by Becca Hole at Jane Packer, and were stunning. Charlottes Mum also spent hours making the bouquet, which was so symbolic and personal…a really special touch. Not forgetting Simon…who looked dapper in Ted Baker.

Photographer on the day was Lisa Jane and her lovely assistant … looking forward to seeing the photos!

Congratulations again on your wedding you two, you are truly lovely…and thank you for having us a long for the day! xx
