Real Wedding: An Intimate Micro Wedding at The Four Seasons Hampshire

Four Seasons Hampshire Wedding Planner, Confetti

Helen and Alex originally booked me to design and plan a wedding for 150 guests. Then Covid hit the shores of the UK. Plans changed a number of times which forced a change of venue (fortunate for us as the new venue of the Four Seasons Hampshire was just divine), a number of other supplier changes, a whole new design and an obvious reduction of guests down to 14. With all guests staying at the hotel it meant we were able to extend the celebrations and make a full weekend of the occasion. The day before the wedding the boys had country sports, whilst afternoon tea and spa treatments were arranged for the bridal party. To wrap up the weekend guests enjoyed a scrumptious bunch and ice skating (we didn’t want any broken legs before the big day!). This may not have been the wedding Helen and Alex initially imagined but it...

Guests were welcomed with cocktails of caipirinhas and margaritas along with the obligatory Champagne whilst 'The Wanderful Four' played a relaxed set of folk inspired tunes and we waited for the birthday girl to arrive. We received the text from...

Real London Wedding in The Amadeus Centre

London Wedding The Amadeus Centre

I’m so excited to be able to share this wedding with you! I’ve been talking about it since the big day itself in August, as I expect the guests have been. It’s great to be able to show you all about this real London wedding in The Amadeus Centre wedding which so perfectly reflected Stacy and Alastair’s unique love. Enjoy! I first fell in love with Stacy when I heard the story of how they met. Stacy was on a blind date with another chap. Bored out of her mind, she noticed a tall, dark, handsome stranger at the bar. So, whilst nodding politely at her date, she kept an eye on her ideal man and, as he made a move to leave, she made a dash and slipped him her number. I love a girl who knows what she wants! Before getting in to the pictures I should start by putting...
