George and Lorna put on a beautifully rustic day at the fabulous Askham Hall. This stunning location lends itself so gracefully to those tiny details that makes each wedding so unique. A rustic, vintage travel theme graced us on George and Lorna's big day, and we were so excited to be back at one of our favourite venues! The barn looked stunning with hand tied flowers, bay trees and orbs of light hanging effortlessly from the vaulted beams. We loved the vintage camera centre pieces for the wedding breakfast and lace edged cakes. It is so inspiring seeing different venues tackle the changing seasons, and with the end of Winter nearly upon us and as if so timely, the tinniest of buds and daffodils carefully blessed the day, a hint at the begging of a new life and a bright future for George and Lorna. It was the perfect day to mark the beginnings of Spring and we wish this lovely two all the best for the happiest of ever afters.
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.
