The Brief
My first meeting with Joy and Matt was very exciting, because it was clear they both loved a party, and they wanted to organise a fabulous wedding day that was beautiful, stylish, full of fun and merriment. They also wanted to make sure the food was good and the wine was fine. Early finishes were most definitely out, so we really needed a venue that allowed them full overnight exclusivity, so their guests could truly enjoy the party.
The Wedding Morning
The day began in leafy Surrey in the couple’s home town. Joy and her bridesmaids got ready at home before being whisked down to local Christ Church, Esher Green. The marriage ceremony was wonderful, and led by a very charismatic vicar who made the experience an enriching one for all.

The atmosphere in the room was electric, and as dusk came the beautiful amber leaf projections became more pronounced as the over-sized Versailles mirrors at each end of the room reflected the wonderful candlelight & party spirit.

The Reception
The venue for the celebrations was the superb Stoke Place in rural Buckinghamshire, a gem of a location, with oodles of history and character, expansive grounds, and a contemporary and slightly quirky interior. Guests checked-in before joining the reception on the back lawn, complete with styled collections of white lounge furniture, mirror-topped cocktail tables (with just a dash of their chosen signature orange hue) and helped themselves to a delectable selection of light bites and canapés as they sipped Champagne. A lively jazz trio enhanced the summer scene, which was made perfect by the glorious summer sunshine.
The Dinner
The wedding breakfast was to be held in the uniquely styled Lakeside Barns. The ceiling of this “blank canvas” area called out for something awe-inspiring, and we suspended twisted branches of Manzanita shipped from Arizona across the beams, along with various sized balls of white gypsophilia and hanging tealight globes. The balls of gyp were lined up to provide suspended table centres and became a real talking point. Other touches included crisp white linens, silky taupe napkins, platinum beaded charger plates and stylish glassware. The couple used a Banksy-style image of themselves for their wedding invitations, and this was carried through to the menu cards and set of playing cards that was given to each guest. Food was of great importance to Joy and Matt, and the feast was a wonderful blend of their favourites: British, Mediterranean and a Thai-influenced meat course, accompanied by a choice of wines selected with the help of an independent wine expert.

This couple were all about giving their guests fresh experiences. Using different zones within the reception venue, we were able to do this again after dinner, as everyone headed out to a specially built black stretch tent, complete with chill out furniture and bar, comfy cushions and fleece blankets for when it got chilly. After a short interlude accompanied by an acoustic music duo, it was time to head to the nightclub for the band and dancing. A blend of classic furniture, lamps, cushions and lighting, transformed the usually white space, into something more atmospheric with the feel of an upmarket club. The fabulous rock-pop band really shook the place with a great repertoire that included the Kaiser Chiefs, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Stereophonics, before the DJ took the reins and played in to the wee small hours.
