Jonathan & Eniko’s wedding reception took place at the stunning setting of Osmaston Park, Derbyshire. The marriage ceremony was officiated by the Reverend Ian Whitehead with his truly unique style, in the glorious Church of St Mary, Tutbury. During the marriage ceremony the Friday Voices, a Staffordshire based choir, provided some exceptional and moving performances which even had a few of the congregation in tears. It was great working alongside the talented Jon of Jon Thorne Photography again as we managed to capture some great footage of the bride and groom amonst the backdrop of Osmaston Park. Eniko, of Hungarian descent, managed to incorporate a few Hungarian traditions throughout the day and one tradition of the drinking of the palinka went down really well!
Sam & Sarah were married at the enchanting Hengrave Hall, a spectacular Tudor Manor House set within acres of beautiful gardens in the Suffolk County. The marriage ceremony took place a short stroll from the main house in the glorious setting of the church of St John Lateran. Sarah, the bride, worked continuous for several months prior to the wedding creating many of the decorations that adorned the house and rooms which added a truly unique touch to the day.
Aaron & Maria were married in the beautiful Greek Orthodox Church of St Spyridon, Great Yarmouth. The reception was held at The Ocean Rooms, Gorleston-on-Sea. Starting off with the traditional ‘dressing’ of the bride, celebrated with the attendance of close family and friends, the day is steeped with tradition and symbolism. Part of the ‘dressing’ had Maria writing all her bridesmaids names on the sole of her shoe, one tradition I haven’t seen for a long while. After the Greek Orthodox Marriage Ceremony the bride and groom were welcomed by a huge crowd and celebrated the night away with feasting, drinking and loads of dancing! It’s always great seeing previous clients of mine at weddings and especially so in the small but high-spirited Greek Community at Great Yarmouth.

Eynsham Hall was the perfect location for Jessica & David’s wedding.

The Greek Orthodox Marriage Ceremony itself is an ancient and beautiful event, which has been celebrated in its current form for centuries. After the ceremony the bride and groom were welcomed by a huge crowd and celebrated the night away with feasting, drinking and loads of dancing!
Harriet and Joseph were married just before Christmas at Sandon Hall, a beautiful country house set amongst hundreds of acres of parkland in Staffordshire. Its elegant interiors and extensive grounds made it a dream location for Harriet and Joseph’s big day. With the expertise of Pumpkin Events, the Saloon was transformed into a spectacular setting for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. It was also great to team up with Stuart of Stuart James Photography after many years of being in the wedding business.
Frederick’s in Islington was the venue for Jed’s Bar Mitzvah Party. It was a pleasure working once again with the team at Uptown Events who, with the help of their entertainers created an atmosphere in the Club Room that began as soon as the Bar Mitzvah boy entered the room and carried on right through until the end of the night.
