Jodie and Danny – Syon Park

I was so excited when Danny got in touch about filming is wedding, because it meant we got to work with my great friend Rebecca Goddard, who was taking the photo’s on the day, but also because the Venue was the beautiful  Great Conservatory at Syon Park, which always looks so pretty.  After meeting Danny and Jodie though, it was the fact they were so lovely that made the day very special, along with their wonderful family and friends…and of course super cute son!

Jodie looked amazing  in her Watters lace dress and gold sandals. She teamed this with a mermaid plait and a handmade, jewelled bouquet. The stunning flowers were provide by the ever talented Fariy Nuff Flowers. Danny (who if you’re a Rugby fan you’ll have spotted this already) was joined by several of his team mates and fellow England players, who naturally helps the party get off to a good start! 

We were blessed with beautiful weather and gorgeous sunsets…and the party continued into the small hours. Thank you both for having along for the day and making us feel so welcome. It really was an amazing day! Wishing you both and Blake a wonderful future together 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

 

 

Bryony and Ed – Scottish Highlands

I know every wedding supplier says that their couples are the best, but our couples really are the best! This is the wonderfully happy, fun, energy filled, drop dead gorgeous wedding of Bryony and Ed, who were married at the church at Ballindalloch, followed by the reception in a marquee in the grounds of Ballindalloch castle, all just a few minutes from Bryony’s home village of Aberlour. The setting for all this was that kind of wild beauty you only get in Scotland and the they filled the place with their friends and family who had travelled from all over the globe to join them.

Although Bryony and Ed now live in London, the wedding was a wonderful mixture of Scottish with a South African twist (Ed was born in South Africa). Bryony’s family are well known for making shortbread (you’ve probably eaten some of it) and I loved the sense of tradition and heritage it gave the day, which blended perfectly with the energetic and vibrant guests.

Bryony looked so beautiful in her white, slim fitting, lace dress, by Rime Arodaky finished off perfectly with killer heels by Nicolas Kirkwood and bright coral nails. She did her own make up (she really doesn’t need much!) and wore flowers in her loose bun. Ed wore a tailor made suit and together they looked amazing.

We were joined by my wedding sidekick Rebecca Goddard who was the photographer for the day, as always it was great fun to go on another adventure to the highlands with Beccy…I really wouldn’t want to travel with anyone else!

We were blessed with some beautiful sunlight at the reception by the river, and the party was kicked off later with a Ceilidh where everyone danced their feet off. Fireworks followed and the party carried on until the early hours. Both Beccy and I have a soft spot for Scottish weddings…you just can’t beat a man in kilt with a set of bagpipes…and this one came up trumps! We loved filming you both and your beautiful families and friends, you’ve been a pleasure to work with and incredibly laid back about everything, which makes our job so easy. We wish you both endless luck and love for your future together xx

Gemma and Craig – Dodford Manor

Gemma and Craig got married at the fairly new venue of Dodford Manor, just before New Year’s Eve. The weather was typically Decemberish and rainy but the vibe on the day was happy, warm and excited…everyone was up for a party! Gemma and Craig (though probably more Gemma!) had spent ages planning and gathering, sourcing and researching bits and pieces for their wedding and the styling was pulled off to a tee. Gemma looked stunning in her vintage birdcage veil and beautiful Pronovias dress, Vivienne Westwood shoes, the guys in tweed jackets….a really beautiful do!  I can’t imagine Gemma looking anything other than vintage with bright red lips….I’m sure you look like that everyday ;)

The evening had a live band (Craig’s in a band…music was important…) and an amazing cake from Choccywoccydoodah.  I was accompanied on the day by Beccy from Rebecca Goddard Photography…and of course she did a fabulous job as ever. Thank you so much Gemma and Craig for letting us be a part of your wonderful day, hope you have an amazing future together! xx
