Ruki & Chris’ wedding ceremony took place at The Manor of Groves Hotel, Hertfordshire. The civil ceremony took place in the idyllic gardens at the hotel, followed by a traditional Turkish reception within the glorious Manor Suite. The grand entrance into the reception was led by the Davul Zurna, a traditional form of Turkish music played by a large double-headed drum and a wind instrument. Another Turkish tradition , the testi dance, involves an earthenware pot that is filled with money and sweets. During the dance the pot is smashed to reveal it’s contents. The smashed pot is a good omen for the newly weds to have as many children as the broken pieces!
Ben and Ivan’s wedding ceremony took place at Our Lady Queen of Apostles Roman Catholic Church. After the marriage ceremony the reception took place in The Meadow Barn at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Welwyn. With Ivana’s Italian background the day was a festivity of Italian traditions from start to end. Adding to that, Ben and Ivana’s upbeat energy enabled us to film some glorious moments during the day which all helps to create a great wedding film! It was also a pleasure to work alongside the very talented team, Sam & Louise photographers.
Amy’s Bat Mitzvah Party took place at the amazing new venue, Twenty @N20. Yet again the crew at Uptown Events transformed and styled the venue into a space that Amy, the Bat Mitzvah girl, partied the night away with her family and close friends. The atmosphere in the room was a non-stop celebration from start to finish.
