We were very excited when David and Lauren asked us to film their London wedding over the Easter weekend. They had chosen the luxurious Corinthia hotel, just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Trafalgar Square and overlooking the River Thames. When they day of their wedding arrived the weather was fantastic, with the sun shining bright and bringing out the beauty of the city. It was a perfect setting, framed by the most beautiful arrangement of tulips in the adjacent park. We love city weddings, the notion that the immediate outside world is moving along at its regular pace, whilst moments of two people, creating a life together, declaring their love for each other, are captured as if in slow motion.
The day started as it meant to go on; relaxed, organised, beauty are how we shall describe it. Whilst our Groom, David, and his merry Grooms-men joined forces in the local pub, Lauren and her bridal party got ready in an incredible suite, at the Corinthia Hotel.
The hotel itself, I am not sure if you have ever been there, is amazing. At the entrance, an ethreal garden of Spring flowers greets guests, but the eye cannot help but be drawn to the most amazing Baccarat chandelier. This chandelier consists of 1001 small globes of clear crystal suspended under the beautiful domed roof. In the centre, hung slightly to the left is one singular red globe, signature of the Baccarat design, which almost seams to beat, as a tiny heart.
It was easy to be swept up in the romance of this day. When the doors opened to the ceremony room and Lauren walked in, hearts melted and then stopped. What a moment. We held on that isle walk as long as we could dare, but we couldn't take our eyes off her, and I am sure you won't be able to either.
