Antonietta and Matthew – RSA

We love being asked back to film family of past couples, it’s the best! Especially when they’re as lovely as Antonietta and Matthew. We first met them a few years ago when we filmed the  wedding to the lovely Kat and Tom, and it’s with great admiration that we’ve seen Kat become a highly respected and talented wedding planner….so we were doubly excited to be asked to film this wedding!   We knew that with Kat behind the planning it was going to be a fabulous day….and it was.

Annie and Matt chose the wonderful RSA as their wedding and reception venue, which is right in the heart of London, of the Strand. It’s a beautiful space and perfect for a city wedding. They both got ready at the equally lovely Mondrian Hotel, which has incredible views of the Thames and St Paul’s. With the help (though not much needed!) of Jo, who did the beautiful hair and make up,  Annie looked stunning in her Suzanne Neville dress. Not forgetting of course Matt and their gorgeous son, who both looked the part too in their suits and black bow ties. A beautiful ceremony and fun filled afternoon lay ahead, and it was so lovely to see these two people share their day with their nearest and dearest.

A who’s who list of suppliers helped make the day look and feel perfect; the flowers were provided by Blue Sky Flowers, amazing gold leafed cake by Couture Cakes, Vowed and Amazed lights, Say Fromage photo booth and wonderful entertainment in the day by the beautiful sounding Charlotte Campbell, with our regular DJ who we always bump in to….Matt Maurice!  Last but not least, we got the chance to work with one of our favourite photographers again (and his equally lovely wife this time), David Jenkins…..thanks for being so much fun to work with, hope we meet again soon!

Annie and Matt, thank you for having us share your day, we which you three lots of luck and love in your future together, and thanks Kat for helping everything run as smoothly as it did. 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

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

 

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

 

 

 

Ali and Leigh – Florida, USA

We love to travel…it’s one of the best things about our job; meeting new people, seeing new places and going on adventures every weekend. This one was extra special as I already knew Ali as a colleague and friend, so we were just beyond thrilled to get to travel to Orlando to film her and Leigh’s wedding. Now Ali and Leigh are a little bit Disney obsessed….I have to hold my hands up and say Disney is not my thing, but I also have to admit I am a little bit converted now, especially after the whole wedding party  spent the most magical evening watching the fireworks at Epcot after the ceremony earlier in the day.

Ali and Leigh were joined for their wedding by their close family and friends, who helped celebrate their unique day. We all stayed at the Rosen Shingle Creek hotel in the run up to the big day, which is where Ali and Leigh started the wedding day off with prep in the morning. We then all headed over to their ceremony venue, the beautiful Cypress Grove Estate House, which is set in tall trees on the edge of a lake…it’s stunning.

The ceremony was conducted by Glynn Ferguson and we were joined by the lovely Kritsa from Kristen Weaver Photography. They were a joy to work with and so lovely. Ali looked stunning in her dress from my local – Stamford Bridal Rooms, finished off with a pair of sparkly Kurt Geiger‘s. Beautiful flowers were provided by Lee Forest Designs and the furniture and styling by RW Events.

The whole team put on a wonderful day for everyone and we managed to squeeze a whole wedding day into about 6 hours….which meant we could then hit Disney!  By chance Beccy and I had been persuaded to upgrade our car rental to a very understated bright red Mustang convertible (now an absolute requirement for all our car rentals in the US) which we used as Ali and Leigh’s wedding transport to Disney (I am also now available as a chauffeur). I think one of my favourite memories from the day was watching them both in the back seat, newly married, huge grins, wind in their hair, heading towards The Magic Kingdom!

We then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening visiting Disney, being congratulated by strangers (and getting hugs from little girls who were convinced Ali was an actual real life princess), rounding off the night watching the amazing firework display at Epcot, whilst standing in England eating fish and chips!

You two were such a joy to be around, thank you so much for having us with you for your beautiful day, we’ll never forget it. We wish you all the luck and love in the world for your future together and can’t wait to see what yoyo both do next 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
