Shona and Jonny – Crossbasket Castle

Scotland!! We love a Scottish wedding, so we were so excited when Shona emailed us to see if we were free to film her wedding at Crossbasket Castle….of course we were!

The whole day was wonderful, both families so friendly and welcoming, and you can see just how important they all are to each other. Family was a big theme on the day and it made it very special. From the venue to the weather (the day previous was thick fog and rain!) it all came together to make a gorgeous day.

Shona chose the brilliant Jesus Peiro for her dress, one of my favourite designers, paired with Manolo Blahs shoes. The bridesmaids wore Maids to Measure dresses in a beautiful dusty pink colour. Flowers on the day were by Mood Flowers, who did a wonderful job. Make up was by Complection Perfection (not that they needed much….)

Jonny wore a kilt teamed with waist coat and jacket by Andrew Brookes tailor. His whole team of ushers wore kilts too…they looked pretty sharp!

After the heartfelt ceremony the pair left the church in a family sports car, complete with tin cans trailing behind, and led the guests back to Crossbasket Castle. The sun shone and we able to enjoy drinks on the terrace before heading into the reception inside.

The beautiful cake was made by Heathers Cakes and the entertainment in the evening included a traditional Ceilidh (our fave!!) and live music by Callanish. We left them in full swing and they no doubt partied the night away.

Www were fined by Euan Roberston who was the photographer on the day. He was an absolute delight to work with, hope we see you again somewhere Euan!

Thank you so much Shona and Jonny for having us with you; you made us feel so welcome and part of the day, it was a total pleasure to meet you all and share the day with you. Lots of luck and love for your future together xx

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

 

 

 

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

 

Elyce and Steve – Chateau Rigaud

It was such a treat to return to Chateau Rigaud again for Elyce and Steve’s wedding, as it’s such a wonderful, laid back venue; but also because Elyce and Steve were such lovely, fun, happy, relaxed people….there was no stress, no drama, no fuss…just a weekend of laughter and love. How every wedding should be!  I knew it would be a good wedding when I found out Elyce is Australian, as it always makes for a happy day. Our English humour and Aussie sense of laid back fun make for a great mix; and this was no exception.

Rigaud was as lovely as ever, with a wonderful team of staff making sure everything ran smoothly, and of course, amazing food! The beautiful flowers were supplied by Flowers in the Vines, Elyce’s dress was by Pronovias, gorgeous shoes by  Louboutin and not to be outdone, Steve’s amazing suit was from Richard James finished off with Mcqueen trousers.

We were joined by Mitchell Carlin who flew over from Australia to photograph the wedding, along with lots of Elyce’s family who made the long journey.  The evening entertainment was provided by the super talented Guy Preston on the decks and Andre “SaxMan” Brown….they did a great job…maybe too good as both myself and Beccy managed to disgrace ourselves on the dance floor!

Thank you both for being such lovely, kind and happy people…it really was a pleasure from start to finish. We wish you lots of luck and love in your future together! xx

Louise and Cy – Bloomsbury Ballroom

Beautiful Louise and Cy had their wedding ceremony in one of my favourite London churches, Clement St Danes on the Strand. Louise’s Dad was in the Raf so it was a fitting church for them to be married in. They then continued on The Bloomsbury Ballrooms for their reception, again, a wonderful venue full of Art Deco glamour and history. Both Louise and Cy were incredibly friendly and considerate all day, they really made it so easy for us to do our job. It was an emotional day for Louise especially, as she lost her much loved Mum a few years ago, but I’m sure she would have been so proud to see her daughter marrying the way she did, surrounded by family and friends.

The Ballroom looked stunning, especially with Cy’s lighting skills and a great party kicked off the evening entertainment. We were working alongside photographer Fiona Kelly and her assistant Emmie, who were an absolute joy! Thanks ladies for being so fun and easy to work with.

We’d like to wish Louise and Cy lots of luck and love in their future together, thank you so much for having us with you for the day xx

Maya and Rich – Hacienda Zorita

Not sure where to start with this one! When Rich emailed to see if we were free to film his and Maya’s wedding we were excited about it right from the start. Not only was the wedding a wonderful mixture of Hindu and Christian, but it was set over three days in the stunningly beautiful vineyard of Hacienda Zorita, near Salamanca in Northern Spain….so we were over the moon when they said they wanted to book.

Maya and Rich had planned the wedding weekend to perfection (well, probably more Maya…I think Rich was given the task of planning the “V”s…videographer and vicar…but we all know these are the most important parts right?…) They were joined by friends and family from all over the world and everyone came with the spirit of love and enjoyment, it was such a great weekend. Rich and Maya have a strong sense of fun and adventure (Rich travelled around the world in a TukTuk to raise money for an education programme), so it was never going to be your average wedding.  Even though I was jet lagged from flying in from Bali the day before, the atmosphere and welcoming nature of everyone there just made the whole weekend such a pleasure to film and experience. We loved the mixture of traditions and faiths, all with a Spanish twist. The sun shone and the food and wine were amazing. The Hacienda staff did an fabulous job at putting on this epic three day event.

We were joined by the wonderfully lovely Deborah Panes and assistant Jonty who were photographing the events alongside us. It is so great to meet people with like minds and who are easy and fun to work alongside…it really does make for such a great team. Thanks both for being so lovely and I really enjoyed our beers with the vicar in Salamanca town ;)   Deb’s also has a super talented brother, Roo Panes, who you sang the song in the clip…he’s one to watch!

With the help of a DJ flown in from the Canaries, every day was finished off with a proper good party and the dance floor was always full. Thanks both for being so great and happy and fun to be around….we wish you luck in your future travels and adventures together! 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

Sara and Matthew – Notley Abbey

A beautiful summery wedding at Notley Abbey, which we filmed alongside photographer Philippa James (who was fab!). Sara and Matthew have lived all around the world (currently in Mexico I think!) and have had a wonderful education in life and people, making them a great couple to be around.  They met at school and their friendship has blossomed into the beautiful relationship they have today. They are supported by a truly loving and welcoming family on both sides.

Sara’s stunning dress was from Suzanne Neville, and she looked amazing. The ceremony took place at The Oratory Church in Oxford, after which everybody wen on to the beautiful Notley Abbey.  Entertainment was provided by The Vernon Sisters, who were so lovely to be around.

Thank you both for letting us be a part of your day and hearing your stories (great speeches!). We wish you all the luck in your future life and travels together. xx

 

 

Vicky and Ed – Cricket St Thomas

We are so lucky…because we get to meet and film lovely people all the time, and Vicky and Ed are right up there in our lovely people ranks! This wedding was so much fun from start to finish, with a wonderful energy and free spirit, so reflective of Vicky and Ed themselves.

They got married at the beautiful little church at Cricket St Thomas, Somerset, the village where Ed’s parents live and where in fact, Ed and Vicky are building their own home (like you do, before you get married?!) Their building project has just been shown on one of our favourite programmes…Grand Designs (heres’ the link if you fancy a watch!) I’m pretty sure  the fact they’ve been filmed for a year helped them to be totally natural on the day while they were being photographed and filmed. In fact, one of the things I love best about this wedding was the way they both let go and just enjoyed the day, the weather, their friends, their families, the music without worrying about the details.

They had both worked incredibly hard in the run up to the wedding to convert a barn currently used by animals and full of poo, into a beautiful country wedding reception venue. They did an incredible job!! Ed, being a chef, even cooked the food for their own wedding breakfast…talk about DIY wedding! We were blessed with some amazing weather and everyone had a wonderful day. Their good friend even provided the transport with his families vintage car…a surprise for Vicky. We also got to see one of our very early couples from when we first started filming, Lucy and Jonny. So lovely to see you both again, hope we meet again soon!

Vicky looked beautiful in her dress by Jesus Piero from Blackburn Bridal, her gorgeous bouquet was by Raindrop Flowers (and lots of flowers provided and arranged by family too!) We were joined by Marshal Gray photographers and the evening entrainment was provided by the amazing Cash Cows who kept the party going into the early hours of the morning., dancing amongst the hay bales.

Thank you both for a wonderful wedding, keep on being happy and full of energy and ideas. We loved every minute! x
