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

 

Jacquetta and Elliot – Hotel Cipriani, Venice

Jacquetta and Elliot, who travelled all the way from California, held their intimate and romantic destination wedding at the Venetian classic; the Hotel Cipriani (fave hangout of Clooney no less) followed by the sumptuous Hotel Metropole for the reception and evening meal.The whole day was planned with the help of super talented and lovely Eva from Chic weddings, and the theme of glamour and rich, deep colours suited the venues perfectly.

Jacquetta and Elliot got ready at Hotel Cipriani with their ceremony being held on the lawns overlooking the vast canals. Jacquetta chose a beautiful burgundy Vera Wang wedding dress and feathered Manolo Blahniks which were the perfect compliment to the whole setting and styling…she looked amazing! A friend of the couple conducted the ceremony and both Jacquetta and Elliot exchanged their own, heartfelt wedding vows. A champagne reception followed where guests donned Venetian masquerade masks, before everyone was transported by boat to the Hotel Metropole. Jacquetta and Elliot took some time out to visit the stunning Saint Mark Square and Cafe Florian. They even managed to dance in the middle of the square to passerby’s smiles and congratulations.

The wedding meal was exquisitely styled again by Eva, with beautiful flowers by Tea Rose Events. A delicious 10 course meal and speeches followed, before dancing and more drinks. The wedding party then finished the evening late with a visit to the famous casino of Venice…what a day! We were accompanied by the very lovely Lindsay Madden who was the photographer, from New York. She was a delight to work alongside as were Eva and Sara from Chic weddings.

Thank you so much Jacquetta and Elliot for letting us be a part of your day, we wish you much love and happiness in the future! X

Larissa and Andy – Mandarin Oriental, London

A very quick video post of the beautiful Larissa (who hails from Brazil) and Andy’s wedding which took place in central London, with their reception at the ever elegant Mandarin Oriental, Knightsbridge (always a pleasure to film there!) Congratulations both! X

Laura and Will – Bray

Laura and Will had a beautiful wedding on a perfect sunny day, set in the field at the back of Laura’s parents house near Bray, amongst long grass, fairy lights and a gorgeous white marque. Laura is an event planner which was evident in the huge amount of detailing and personal touches to their reception. It really did look amazing…well done Laura!  Will and Laura scrubbed up pretty well too, Laura looked so pretty in her lace dress and sparkly heels.

The wedding ceremony took place at St Michael’s church, in Bray, where the sun shone and guests arrived with smiling faces. This was a very happy, fun wedding, something which we’ve learnt is typical of Laura and Will. They were surrounded by a large group of friends and family who think the world of them, and quite rightly so…

On the day we were working with Dominique Bader and her husband, who were a lovely pair to be around. A fantastic live band kicked if the evening dancing and when we left the party was in full swing….I have a feeling it was a late night :)

Congratulations on your wedding Laura and Will and lots of luck and love for your future together xx

Hannah and Matt – Lake district

As a Cumbrian girl, it was so lovely to go back “home” to film a wedding…and it was a great wedding too! Gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery, tons of pretty details and an extremely happy couple – Hannah and Matt had a great day! They were married at Matt’s family church, St Margret’s at Wythop, which has the most spectacular views and fells behind the church. They then went to Park House Barn…which is a proper barn, on a working farm, which just happens to host weddings too. Hannah and Matt and their families had spent ages collecting and making all the details for the barn..it looked incredibly pretty and the flowers were beautiful. Rustic charm at it’s prettiest.

Hannah looked stunning in her lace dress;  Adela, by Pronovias, L K Bennett shoes and daisy floral headband, Matt scrubbed up pretty well too in his Reiss suit. The sun shone, (which as a Cumbrian I appreciate it’s appearance!) and fun was had by all in this laid back family wedding. We left the barn literally rocking to The Mustangs as the sun set on this gorgeous, happy day.  We were accompanied by the lovely Kat Timmins who photographed their day…here’s a link to their photos!

Thanks both for having us along, best of luck with your future life together xx

Cindy and Albert – Castello Banfi, Tuscany

Well, this was such a beautiful wedding….but then Cindy and Albert are two very lovely, happy, vibrant people so it was all they deserved! Originally from Hong Kong, they were married at the elegant Castello Banfi, which has incredible views of the dreamy Tuscan landscape and made a perfect setting for Cindy and Albert’s outdoor ceremony. They also had a Chinese Tea ceremony earlier in the morning with their close family and friends. To help plan their day they chose the wonderful Chic Weddings Italy team, who we love working with so much. I have actually lost count of the number of outfits Cindy wore on the day (well played Cindy!!) but her wedding dress was by Ian Stuart…always a pleasure :)

We were joined by two different photographers on the day, Cinzia Bruschini and Jada Poon, who is based in Hong Kong, and despite this being unusual we managed to work around each other and thoroughly enjoyed meeting these two talented ladies. As ever Chic weddings planned a beautiful day and the attention to detail was spot on…they always have the most beautiful flowers!

Cindy and Albert’s family and friends made our day easy and fun, and Cindy’s Dad made a very moving and heart warming speech, so lovely. Thank you both for having us over to that gorgeous corner of Italy again, we wish you lots of luck and love for your future together! X

Sarah and Will – Glanusk Estate

Say hello to one of the most gentle , kind natured couples we’ve had the pleasure of filming…they really are wonderful. Both Will and Sarah are very alike, which is a good thing, and they are so lucky to have equally caring and loving families to share their lives with. This was something that was very obvious on the day and it was a true honour to have been part of their day. It’s hard to believe they are both Doctors dealing with all that entails…tough jobs!

Not only are they lovely people, they also look gorgeous too…Sarah wore a stunning Sassi Holford dress and her hair and makeup was perfected by Kaz Fernando. She finished her look of with a beautiful pair of Louboutin’s. Will looked immaculate in traditional tails. They were married at Glanusk Estate in Wales, which is a little hidden gem of a country home, still lived in by the original family and stuffed full of the family memorabilia….it’s quirky without trying to be, we loved it.

We also got to meet the very funny, charming and talented Paul White who took the photo’s on the day….hope to meet again soon!

We’d like to wish Sarah and Will a life time of good luck and happiness, thank you so much for having us with you on the day, it was such a pleasure x

 

 

Jo and Simon – The Bingham, Richmond

Sunshine…Hurray!!  This was such a beautiful day and we were blessed with that golden April sunshine that gave the whole wedding a happy, lazy, laid back smiley feel…just as well or Simon and his Australian family would have been freezing! The Bingham is a favourite of  mine, I love the views from the gardens of the river, the beautiful rooms and the fabulous food, and the venue provided a superb setting for Jo and Simon’s wedding and reception.

Jo looked stunning in her fitted fish tail, lace dress and Simon dapper in Austin Reed, plus Jo (and Simon….maybe a little bit…) had put in a lot of effort adding little personalised touches to their wedding to make it extra lovely. Jo, I salute you for hand making 1000 paper cranes, I can’t decide if you were crazy or just very committed…but whichever it is they looked great :)

Evening entertainment was provided by the ever popular Wedding Smashers, with lovely letter lighting from Vowed and Amazed, plus we got to work with the very lovely Elizabeth Lois and her partner…go check out the gorgeous photos!

This was a beautiful wedding and the much anticipated return of sunshine really added to the day, throw in a handful of lovely Australians (who always know how to enjoy them selves), happy ,cute children and you have a top wedding. Thank you both so much for having us along and good luck with everything you do and your travels in the future together xx

Becky and Jason – One Marylebone

One word sums up this wedding…fun! Becky and Jason simply had a great time on their wedding day, there was so much laughter and joking and smiles, we loved it. And, I especially love the fact they chose a drum and bass track for their first dance…brilliant!

Beautiful Becky got ready at the Sanderson, which is such a fab hotel. She had a gorgeous fish tail dress and Christian Dior shoes, and her bridesmaids (who were equally gorgeous and happy) wore fitted grey dresses and heels. They all looked glamorous and chic, much like the rest of this upbeat city wedding. Her flowers were by Cindy Kirkland, who provided the delicate anemones which looked so pretty. The actual wedding and reception all took place at One Marylebone, which I think is fast becoming one of my favourite wedding venues, having an altar as the back drop to your evening dancing is so cool! It was a great setting for this wedding and the sense of space and grandeur was spot on. Helping plan the day was the very lovely and friendly Jenny Marks who had the perfect combination of being organised, getting things done but being lovely too. Jason and his groomsmen all looked handsome in black suits and Jason’s brother gave a very moving speech. I also loved the choice of singing Madness – Must be Love during the ceremony, which led to a few tears being shed…and not because of the quality of singing ;)

Photographer on the day was Julia Boggio, who did a great job getting her trade mark photo’s and complimented the couple’s sense of fun and humour. The dancing in the evening got off to a great start, especially with the help of a dedicated bottle of vodka for each table…this was a top wedding, there was so much fun and energy and humour to the day. Thank you for having us along, I know you’re both going to continue having fun in the future and we wish you lots of luck and love along the way xx

Barbara and Wilco – Sardinia

Wow….what a wedding! This is the second wedding we did with Eva from Chic Weddings and it was a corker!! Barbara and Wilco are from Holland and came to Sardinia to get married as Barbara’s Swiss Dad now lives in Cagliari. They chose the truly breath taking venue of Capo Spartivento, which is a 150 year old lighthouse, perched on the cliffs on the South side of Sardinia. It has been converted into a luxury hotel and private venue, complete with infinity pool where you can gaze out to sea; and the chef happens to be Dolce and Gabana’s old private chef…so the food wasn’t bad either!

It’s quite difficult to convey the atmosphere of the place in writing, but it really is incredible and very unique. I think I might go and get married there myself one day…!

Barbara and Wilco are a very gentle couple, so very much in love and very laid back and relaxed…perfect. They chose to have an humanist ceremony conducted by the lovely Blessings from Italy, which took place on the cliffs overlooking the sea.

They then all retreated to canapaes overlooking the pool and the sea, while the sun gave off the most glorious golden light before setting over the sea…dreamy doesn’t really do it justice. As alway Eva was a delight to work with and kept the day running smoothly, but in her wonderful laid back, relaxed way. All the details and hints of Morocco set the venue off perfectly. They had Sara Letschart photograph their wedding, who travelled from Holland. She was brilliant, and a lovely, gentle lady full of laughter…hope we meet again :)

Barbara and Wilco were a joy to film, they were funny, friendly and happy, as were their lovely family and friends. Thank you so much for having us over there to film your wedding, it was incredibly special xx
