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

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

 

 

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

Lucy and Ollie, East Sussex

We absolutely adored this wedding. Everything about it was beautiful, but mostly Lucy and Ollie and their wonderful families, the people really did make this wedding. Everybody was so incredibly welcoming and friendly, and the sense of love and affection between the family members was very strong indeed…they’re a very lucky couple.

Lucy and Ollie got married at their local family church in Withyham, East Sussex, and they had their reception in a fantastic marquee at the bottom of Ollie’s family home. They were blessed with bright sunshine and warm weather. The gardens (which Ollie’s parents had spent months working on) looked stunning. They had lots of help from a family member, Holly, who really did an amazing job at co-ordinating and planning the day.

Lucy looked so beautiful in vintage Chanel shoes and a Halfpenny wedding dress….one of my favourites! We were joined on the day by Tom Ravenshear photography, who we worked with on one of our very first weddings. Was a real pleasure to see him again!

Thank you both for having us, we loved every minute and you were a delight to be around; and good luck with your fantastic TV career Lucy…will look out for future productions!! x

 

 

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

Charlotte and Gerard – Babington House

It’s been a while but we’ve blogged…and what a beautiful wedding to return with. We adore Babington, it’s our favourite UK venue for so many reasons. The staff are amazing, the food delicious, the decor relaxed and welcoming, but also it just attracts the best couples to hold their weddings there!

Charlotte and Gerard are no exception and we were delighted to come back to Babington to film their wedding. As usual everything looked amazing, ran smoothly and the day was full of smiles, laughter and fun. We even had sunshine!  We got to work with one of our favourite photographers; Amy Murrell, who we get to see a few times each year and it’s always a pleasure.

Charlotte looked elegant and beautiful in her delicate dress by Sarah Seven, finished off with gorgeous Jimmy Choo’s.  Gerard chose a bespoke suit from Tom Fox which complimented Charlotte perfectly. The ever wonderful florists, Passion worked their magic on the day making the place smell and look delightful.

In the evening we were entertained by Atlantica, a brilliant live band, followed by Nigel, the usual Babington House DJ, who took control of the party in the evening, which always means the dance floor is packed and the night rolls on into the early hours (great to see you again!)

Thank you both for being so lovely and easy to work with, it was a joy all day. We wish you lots of luck, health and happiness in your future together xx
