Cecilia and Scott – Four seasons, Hampshire

Cecilia and Scott chose to get married at one of my favourite country venues, the beautiful Four Seasons, Hampshire, and even better, they held their wedding ceremony in the walled gardens which are overflowing with roses and lavender. When Cecilia contacted me she described her wedding theme as overgrown country garden, so I knew it was going to look amazing! It was a perfect union of English country garden meets Swedish (Cecilia and family are from Sweden originally) beauty….and blondness :)

Not only did the florists, The Isle of you,  do an amazing job at the flowers, but Cecilia looked stunning in her pretty Morilee lace dress, with hair styled in a tousled plait by the ever talented Severin Hubert of Hepburn Collection, and gorgeous make up Catherine Bailey. Cecilia also had some of the prettiest, smiliest bridesmaids on hand too….thanks for being lovely ladies!

After a heartfelt ceremony in the gardens guests were treated to a musical surprise in the form of Mans Zelmerlow (Sweden’s 2015 Eurovision Contest winner!) who also returned in the evening to kick the dancing off. Matt Maurice was also on hand to get everyone partying (as ever) and always a joy to work alongside.

We were joined by photographers Jacob and Pauline, who did a fantastic job!

Thank you Cecilia and Scott for having us join you, we wish you and your lovely families and friends every happiness in the future, and look forward to seeing your Pilates moves on Instagram!! X

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

 

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

Danielle and Marlon – Haymarket Hotel and Fetcham Park

Oh I love my job…because I get to spend 2 days  hanging out with gorgeous, glamorous, lovely people like Danielle and Marlon, it really is a wonderful job!  They decided to have a two day wedding, with an intimate  wedding on the Thursday at Chelsea Old town Hall, surrounded by close family and friends, then they all travelled by Route master to The Haymarket Hotel for drinks and evening meal reception. The next day was over to the beautiful Fetcham Park for a proper, big party for all their extended group of friends and family.

Now this of course meant that Dani could wear two dresses…I like her thinking! For the wedding day she wore a very simple and elegant Suzanne Neville dress, which suited her perfectly; while for Fetcham she wore Alexander Mcqueen no less…she looked completely amazing both days (and has more than a hint of a certain Ms Minogue about her…). However, Marlon was not to be outdone. It turns out Marlon designed his own suit, and he currently works for one of the country’s top London tailors. Needless to say he was handsome personified…what a perfectly matched couple we say :)

The photographer on both days was the lovely Eddie Judd, a regular at Fetcham Park, which is run by the very lovely Laura who was on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly..and it did. The party was well and truly rocking thanks to atmosphere of the venue, the outgoing guests and of course the music provided by Matt Maurice.

This was a fabulous wedding and I loved the fact they broke with tradition and did things over two days, culminating in a huge party for all their friends, reflecting their love of fashion and sense of style. Danielle and Marlon were an absolute delight to film and we wish them every bit of luck in their new life and new ventures. We hope we can see you guys again! xx
