Casual Elegance | Formal Garden

We enjoyed every moment of our year planning with this stunning couple, despite their being based in London at the time.  We think of this as a wedding of glorious contrasts.  The groom is Kiwi, the bride American.  He is both a professional athlete and a professional entrepreneur.  Her beautiful family reflects a harmonious contrast of many heritages.  The wedding ceremony was in the most formal of Southampton gardens yet performed by the bride’s younger brother.  The setting for dinner and dancing was highly elegant, yet dinner was deconstructed tacos and Mexican street food served at stations. Somehow, it all worked gloriously and goes down as one of our all-time favorite weddings.


“You were such a pleasure to work with from day one and this weekend was truly spectacular, down to every last detail.  We genuinely could not have done it without you.  I cannot believe how beautiful it all turned out. Credit to you and your team.” – The Bride

“Jill you nailed it! Special day and thanks for your calm support.” – The Groom
