Our team came away from Serena and Philip’s wedding with so many emotions and feelings, the main one being that it is so easy to see why they are loved by so many people. We adored being involved in their wedding, and getting to know them through the planning meetings and pre-wedding-shoot. Our role is interactive; having a real rapport with those on the other side of the camera makes for such a positive experience, and we are blessed to have such wonderful people place their trust in us.
The wedding day itself, at Rosewood London, was simply stunning and beautifully heartfelt, with all the trappings of a gorgeous luxury London wedding. Guests were treated to a beautiful reception upon arrival, courtesy of our friends at Tony Page.
Standing by the entrance to the Ballroom and feeling like a plush theatre, the Chuppah by Mary Jane Vaughan was breathtaking, and a perfect structure under which Serena and Philip were married, with Philip’s late father’s Tallit (prayer shawl) floating above them as they became husband and wife. The ceremony was conducted by Rabbi Shochet along with the ever-inspirational Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, whilst Chazan Simon Cohen sung to the couple under the Chuppah, further creating an electrifying atmosphere.
As guests entered the Ballroom, they were immediately met with the unmistakable sounds of the majestic Muzika Showband on stage, and the room looked incredible thanks to Mary Jane Vaughan and mega production by the talented team at Just Seventy whilst Toastmaster David Collins added his touch of class to proceedings. The evening flew by, with hysterical speeches and emotional moments, fine cuisine and amazing music, shots being downed and Grandma on stage, epic singalongs and a beautiful breakfast buffet to round off a very special day.
We have joined the large camp of people who have a huge place in our hearts for Serena and Philip. Mazal Tov to you both, and to your families, we wish you a lifetime of happiness and amazing adventures together. Thank you so much for inviting our team to be part of your special day.
