Agata & Stefan wanted their day to be a little different with a vintage themed intimate wedding at CLARIDGES.
Agata is originally from Poland and Stefan is Bavarian, they met and fell in love in London and this played a part in the planning of the creative shoot as well as venue choices. As a surprise Agata had the flower Edelweiss flown in from Austria to be included in the buttonholes and bridal bouquet. Agata’s 1920’s inspired designer creation from Jenny Packham set off the vintage theme perfectly. They hired a 1960’s Route Master bus to transport the wedding guests from the ceremony venue at Chelsea Registry Office to have a few drinks on a boat on the Thames and then onto London Claridges hotel for the intimate reception. During the evening Sav The Deceptionist showed us a trick or two – and the biggest trick of all is that it turns out Sav lives down the road from us in Dorking and we know him from walking our dogs – coincidence, I think not! This was a very special and sincere wedding and we where fortunate to be invited to share a meal with the guests – a Gordon Ramsay 7 course meal no less! Lastly we all made our way down to The Embankment foot bridge overlooking the London Eye and the guest wrote out their wishes and sent off Wish Lanterns into the night. What a fantastic ending to a special wedding day.
