Vicky and Nick – Mount Stuart

First wedding of the year! And what a fabulous start it was. I travelled up to the Isle of Bute for Vicky and Nick’s beautiful wedding at Mount Stuart House….simply gorgeous. Vicky and Nick gathered their nearest and dearest, all making the journey and crossing on the ferry to the Island. It really was a breath taking venue and the chapel they were married in was bathed in pink  stained glass light, reflecting off the white marble. Lots of live music in the form of pipers, string quartets and band for the Ceilidh in the evening, topped off with spectacular fireworks in the evening. They both had put so much thought into the dy…it really paid off!

Everybody made me feel incredibly welcome and it was an absolute joy to work with Boyd who was the photographer for the day. A fabulous list of suppliers is below…take a moment to have a look as they all helped make the day very special.

Thank you Vicky and Nick for being so lovely to be around, I wish you lots of luck and love in your future together x

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

 

 

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

 

Suzanne and Sam – Aspen, Colorado

I often gush/bore my friends about the amazing weddings I am lucky enough to go to, and the wonderful people I meet and places I see…but this one is right up there, quite literally. I was so lucky to get to spend a week in the beautiful area that is Aspen, Colorado; to film Suzanne and Sam get married. Sam is a friend of another couple we filmed (Ashley and Daniel) earlier in the year and I was so excited when Sam emailed to see if I might be free to film his wedding too.

Sam and Suzanne live in HongKong, but travelled across to Aspen for their wedding weekend. They had chosen to have their ceremony and reception on top of Aspen mountain , on the beautiful SunDeck. They were joined by friends and family from all over the world, all coming to celebrate this wonderful couple. Apart from the views being simply amazing, the whole weekend had such a happy, excited, joyful and loving atmosphere…it really was perfect. They both have very special families.

The couple had some planning help in the form of EKS events, who kept everything running smoothly, including the cable car rides up the mountain (a personal first at a wedding!) and we were joined by the super talented Thayer Gowdy on the photography side…they were a dream to work with and made me giggle, always a bonus!

The Ceremony and Speeches were heartfelt and funny, the dancing unhindered, the sun shone, the smiles were plenty…thank you both so much for having us; it was an amazing week and a trip I won’t forget in a hurry. We wish you both all the luck and love in the world for your future together x

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

 

 

 

Bear and Daniel – Malton, Yorkshire

We loved this wedding so, so much! I knew it was going to be good from the moment Bear emailed, as she just happened the be the lady who created the gorgeous wedding ring of one of our other brides (Bryony and Ed). Bear is a jeweller (Bear Brooksbank) and Daniel works in design, so it’s always going to be a creative wedding.

The whole day took place at Menethorpe Hall, Bear’s childhood home, with their ceremony at a local church. Daniel got ready at the Talbot Hotel in Malton, the pretty North Yorkshire market town. Bear had a house full of family and friends helping her get ready, and she chose the most original and beautiful dress, which she helped design, by Jacqueline Byrne based in London. It was a concoction of painted layers, lace and feathers…it was stunning! Of course Bear made her own jewellery to and she looked amazing. The bridesmaid were treated to Temperley dresses too.

Following the ceremony, where it tried it’s best to snow as Bear arrived at the church, the reception was held back at Menethorpe Hall, with champagne, canapés and some emotional and heartfelt speeches. The party continued into the evening with a surprise for the guests in the form of a live band who had been set up in the now converted party barn. The guests didn’t need much encouragement and a great party kicked off, which I’m pretty sure lasted well into the early hours.

We were joined on the day by the very lovely Pete Henderson from Nottingham who was the photographer on the day. Such a pleasure to work with, hope we meet again!

Thank you Bear and Daniel, we had a fantastic time and love your energy and smiles. Here’s to an amazing and healthy future for you both xx
