Lovely October wedding at Ewell Court House

We had last seen Paul and Finn back in April when we joined them at their wedding venue Ewell Court House, a venue unbeknown to us and just a short distance from the A3 that we had passed by on many occasions.

We were here for their pre wedding photo shoot and being a lovely sunny Sunday we got to walk round the beautiful park that is adjacent to the venue, finding areas that we could potentially come back to for their wedding many months later in the last week of October.

And now the Big Day had arrived and again it was a beautiful day; with Finn starting with her mum and Bridesmaids in The Greyhound Hotel in Carshalton whilst Paul was at the venue helping make sure that everything was set up as planned.

With a lovely heartfelt marriage ceremony and with music from friends and girl band The Dolls, it was out into the sunshine on the terrace for champagne and canapés, bubbles and group wedding photos. Who could have believed that this was late October?

Then, quickly stealing them away for a romantic walk around the park, we set about retracing some of our pre wed shoot steps, in particular to the magical and fairytale like Pack Horse Bridge.

Then before the wedding speeches and afternoon Tea there was the cutting of the cake...or should we say cakes...It turned out that there were some 80 plus individually made and decorated cakes, presented in mugs and sporting a range of accessories, all made by the Paul’s mum. What a supreme effort and resulting in a wonderful display of colour and fun.

The theme for the wedding was music, as Paul and Finn both share a passion for it along with the fact that Finn runs a music teaching business...so LP album themed tables, special love mix tape cassettes and CDs plus The Dolls were the order of the day.

The theme however reached a crescendo in the evening when after a set by The Dolls, Finn donned a guitar and joined the band for another set. Needless to say it took everyone, including Paul by surprise and it was a truly memorable moment that we don’t think anyone will forget.

We applaud you both for a super wedding where everyone had fun and so much effort was put into making it all so personal.

We wish you a fabulous future ahead of you.

Lovely October wedding at Great Fosters

This latest blog takes us back to October for the marriage of Rob and Hannah at the magnificent Great Fosters.

We love working at this wonderful Surrey wedding venue, a truly lovely Grade l listed 16th Century mansion located in green and leafy Egham.

And the last time we saw Rob and Hannah was back in May when we met early one glorious Sunday morning on the Millennium Bridge for their pre wed shoot.

Relaxed couple captured during their pre wed shoot as they leisurely stroll along the Millennium Bridge from St Paul's to Tate Modern by Surrey Lane wedding photographers

And now, the Big Day had arrived.

The morning started as it usually does with the Bride getting ready with her Bridesmaids...which involved champagne and sandwiches along with several practice walks down the aisle in the atmospheric Nursery Suite upstairs in the old part of the building...whilst the now rather nervous Groom was moving between the Painted Room bar and The Orangery making sure that everything was tickety boo..

Then it was time....and after Hannah had her interview with the marriage registrars she was escorted by her Bridesmaids and close friends (via the Painted Room bar for a quick shot of Dutch Courage) to The Orangery for her wedding ceremony.

After a lovely ceremony everyone luckily could spill out onto the terrace as the weather was perfect...warm and sunny.

With drinks flowing and colourful and enticing canapés on offer guests we able to relax and catch up with family and friends....whilst we fitted in the group wedding pictures and then wisked our newlyweds off for a refreshing and romantic walk around the beautiful grounds that are one of the many highlights of Great Fosters...taking in the sunken Rose Garden, Japanese Bridge, formal Parterre garden and much more.

After some very entertaining and emotional speeches during the wedding breakfast in the Tithe Barn everyone spilled out into the Painted Room for more refreshments and then into The Orangery for the First Dance and more night time celebrations.

A lovely couple, a beautiful day and at a rather special Surrey wedding venue.

Once again we thank the wonderful staff at Great Fosters who helped make the day run so smoothly and we wish our newlyweds all the very bext for their future together.

Lovely Cobham wedding at St. Andrews and Painshill Park

Today's wedding blog follows on the heals of our last one, as we return to the same wedding venue in August with a gap of just two weeks at the magical Painshill Park just off the A3 in Cobham for the marriage of Lucas and Charlene

The last time we saw our lovely couple was on a bright sunny day in April when we went to Painshill Park for their pre wedding photo shoot...and today along with lovely summer weather, we again started off a few miles away down the road at The Brooklands Hotel where both Charlene and Lucas were getting ready.

Lucas looked calm and collected as he and his best man Harvey dressed to perfection. Very good mates for a long time, both were former non league footballers as well as Harvey, aka MC Harvey being from the famous rap outfit, So Solid Crew.

Charlene looked beautiful in her wedding dress and although calm and collected as well, was also getting slightly nervous as the time to leave for St. Andrews Cobham was approaching.

The wedding was a truly lovely affair with some memorable singing performances from the fabulous CK Gospel Choir....which also ended with the Lucas and Charlenne dancing down the aisle and out of the church, a wonderful moment that energised the whole congregation.

Then onto the tranquil Painshill Park where guests were entertained in the colourful private Walled Garden by the steel band, 'Solid Steel' during the post ceremony drinks.

Then jumping onto a buggy we were whisked off to take some romantic pictures up at the Gothic Temple, The Ruined Abbey and along the lake to the picturesque, white wooden Chinese Bridge.

Back to the reception and the wedding breakfast the day which hotted up later as Harvey took on his MC role with finesse as he expertly talked about and introduced a range of speakers, all with heartfelt and moving stories to tell about Lucas and Charlene.

And then onto the dance floor...music is an important part of Charlene and Lucas's life and as with their dancing out of the church, their first dance was really something to behold, indeed producing smiles, gasps and loud cheering in equal measure.

We left before MC Harvey took to the stage for special wedding day performance but we heard it was very good.

A simply wonderful day, with everything running smoothly, full of teras, laughter and emotion.

Special thanks to Junior Harvey for his very entertaining MC skills and to the Painshill Park team who once again made everything happen in a friendly and relaxed way.

Also to Charlene's sister Sharma, owner of the Proud Bakehouse and who made the wonderful wedding cake.

We wish our newlywed couple the very best for the future and look forwad to designing their wedding album.

Sizzling Summer wedding at Painshill Park

So it's time to once again try and catch up on the blogs which woefully have been lacking over this year and so we return to August for the marriage of Daniel and Leanne at the magical Painshill Park just off the A3 in Cobham.

The last time we saw our lovely couple was on a bright sunny day in June when we went to Painshill Park for their pre wedding photo shoot...and today along with lovely summer weather, we started off a few miles away down the road at The Brooklands Hotel where Leanne was getting ready.

The day was memorable for many reasons but a few were more so than usual.

Firstly was the raw emotion on display: As Leanne approached Daniel down the aisle you could clearly see the emotions welling up in both of them...and a quick look over to their four sons showed tears a plenty...it truly meant a lot to the whole family.

A guest (Leanne's cousin) who was ushered in at the last minute to join his already seated family was Lewis Hamilton, yes that Lewis Hamilton, four-time Formula One World Champion, a true British global sporting legend and a very pleasant, quiet and unassuming man to boot.

Later after everyone was seated for the wedding breakfast Daniel's mother lead a troupe of mainly ladies dancing and singing around the tables and onto the dance floor for some pre dinner dancing.

The emotions again were on display during the speeches with some very moving moments displayed on the top table as well as some very funny ones when Daniel was encouraged to sing....people were in stitches.

The Soundhouse Band were truly fabulous...walking around the tables during the wedding breakfast getting people to sing and later filling the dance floor with their soulful upbeat music.

Also the Master of Ceremonies, a Mr Des Richards who was a true whirlwind of a speaker who danced and sang through his duties, very funny and entertaining.

After the pre wed walk in June Leanne was just wishing for good weather on her BIG Day. She got that and a whole lot more and it was a delight for us to see everything go so well for her and Daniel.

A truly lovely couple with a wonderful warm and loving family.... and friends.

We salute them and wish them all the very best for the future and fingers crossed too for Lewis who we sincerely hope becomes a fifth-time Formula One World Champion this year.

Finally we thank the lovely staff at Painshill Park who made everything run so smoothly, so important.

Emotional Horsley Towers English Chinese wedding 

And so to a Sunday morning in mid July and I am off to Horsley Towers, a Victorian Gothic mansion designed by Sir Charles Barry who most famously designed the Houses of Parliament. I always look forward to covering weddings at this extraordinary Surrey wedding venue as there is always a very different view from every turn you take here.

I also remember when I first met the Bride and Groom Linda and Matthew, that it was that element of difference that they liked so much, the towers, lake, cloisters and the lovely tiled chapel, something we would make the most of when we walked around the venue for some romantic portraits.

So back to the day and it's a beautiful day for a wedding.

Linda is just completing her final touches when I meet her and she looks lovely, full of excitement, calm but with a hint of nerves beginning to surface as the time gets nearer.

Matthew is around the bar, greeting guests and smiling all the time, but he's admitted that he is nervous, however, with his Best man in tow, he's in safe hands.

Soon Linda is sweeping down the grand staircase on route for the Great Hall which has been dressed in a striking and vibrant red which is the palette chosen for the Chinese element of this English Chinese wedding.

Down the wedding aisle and through to the marriage ceremony and the emotions are running high....there are lots of tears and you can tell how precious this moment is for Linda and Matthew. 

Then with the wedding completed it's out onto the parched lawn for refreshing drinks, confetti throwing and general relaxation and fun...and the Chinese guest certainly know how to have fun!

After the group wedding pictures and the hilarious throwing of the bouquet everyone heads back into the Great Hall for a special Chinese Tea ceremony where the Bride and Groom present Tea to family and close friends in exchange for little envelopes of money. Again, a very emotional moment for this is where Linda shows her respect and gratitude to her parents for their love and care in bringing her up. 

Then onto the wedding breakfast, again beautifully dressed in red and with elements of Chinese good luck and blessings....and where Linda took a star roll as Matthew had decided that the speech side of things wasn't something he wanted to do.

After dinner we then took some time out for some romantic wedding pictures away from the reception taking in some of the classic Horsley Tower photo opportunities.

The day ended, for me anyway, on a high...after a great first dance the dance floor was fully taken up by mainly Chinese guests carrying out some full on and impressive synchcronised dancing and boy was everyone having such a great time.

Today had been a colourful world wind of a day and Linda and Matthew were on top form. 

It was also great to see Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies Steve Eggleton again, I can't remember where I last saw him but it was good to work with him as we had some rather tight deadlines to meet, which I am glad to say we did.

I always love finding firsts at a wedding and today was the first time I had shot a wedding cake made of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and shot a Tesla wedding car complete with gull wing doors. Also Linda changed from white to red for the Chinese tea ceremony and back again immediately after for the English wedding breakfast.... a no mean feat.

I wish Linda and Matthew all the happiness for the future, a great couple who fully deserve it.
