What a remarkable weekend!! Two of the most iconic venues in the UK were host to Bhakti & Harshal’s wedding celebrations. Their Indian marriage ceremony took place at the prestigious Kew Gardens, within the glorious Nash Conservatory. Afterwards the drinks reception was held in the Princess of Wales Conservatory and the evening reception within the Orangery. Even on a cold Winter’s day, Kew Gardens never fails to impress and looked spectacular as ever. The following day, after getting ready at The Landmark Hotel, the married couple, their friends and family celebrated the evening at the iconic Natural History Museum, London. Hintze Hall, with it’s magnificent architecture and unique collections became the perfect backdrop to celebrate the marriage of Bhakti & Harshal Dave. Working alongside the talented Mark Bothwell Photography, we were treated to a visual feast of traditions and performances that were an absolute pleasure to capture.
Alice & Raju’s wedding celebrations took place at the prestigious One Marylebone, one of the leading unique venues in London. The Indian marriage ceremony was a spectacle to behold within the grandeur of One Marylebone. The Sangeet party was held a couple of days prior at Bury Court Barn, Surrey.
Shirley & Chris’ Civil Ceremony took place at “The Real Downton Abbey’, Highclere Castle, an exquisite country house set in a 5,000 acre estate within the glorious Hampshire countryside. It’s always a great pleasure filming at this amazing setting and Shirley and Chris’ wedding did not fail to add the glamour that the venue deserves. After their Civil Ceremony at Highclere Castle, the wedding party and guests made their way to The Vineyard to celebrate their wedding reception.
During the hotest day of the year, Claire & Daniel were married at the world-renowned Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Set within 300 acres of beautiful gardens, the World Heritage site provided a stunning backdrop to Claire & Daniel’s Jewish wedding. The Ketubah, a Jewish marriage contract, was signed amongst close family and friends in the Sir Joseph Banks Building. The Jewish wedding ceremony then proceeded to the Nash Conservatory, finishing off with the huge reception party in the Orangery.
Promotional film created for Weston Park to showcase their venue as a wedding location. With its classical architecture, set in stunning Capability Brown parkland, Weston Park is the picture perfect location for any wedding.
Amy & Richard’s wedding took place in one of London’s most iconic buildings, the prestigious St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. The marriage ceremony was officiated by Harriet O’Brien, a humanist wedding celebrant, who co-wrote the wedding ceremony with the bride and groom. As a result, the ceremony played out as Amy & Richard’s personal story which was enjoyed by all their friends and family. With a mix of Jewish & Irish traditions the wedding reception was a huge extravaganza showcased by one of the UK’s best party band, Sensation Band. Mark Bothwell was the official photographer who as always captured the day with such ease and expertise that the day was all about the bride and groom having an exceptional time, which they sure did!
John & Helen’s big Greek wedding reception took place at Alrewas Hayes, an exclusive countryside venue in the heart of Staffordshire. Their Grek Orthodox Marriage Ceremony was held at The Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity & St Luke.
John & Alexandra were married at All Saints Church, within the spectacular grounds of Sandon Hall, Staffordshire. After the church ceremony their wedding reception was held within the Saloon, at the majestic Sandon Hall. The Saloon was decorated in the theme of Alice in Wonderland and was an extravaganza of colour and imagery from the classic novel. It’s always great going back to Sandon Hall and having the privilege to film an event there and even better working with a fellow professional, Stuart of Stuart James Photography.
We are really proud to say that the majority of our work comes from families who we have previously worked for and it’s always great revisiting and seeing past clients with their extended families. This wedding was no exception and it was so good being welcomed back to the Lefroy family home for another family event. Clemmie & Freddie were married at St Mary’s Church and the wedding reception took place at the family home in Barnes, London.
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!
