It’s not everyday you meet two people who are so inspiring, so joyful and just such lovely lovely guys, as Aaron and Keith! From the moment we met them we knew their day was going to be something special, not only was it at The Elvetham (one of our favourite venues), but the two guys in front of us were just so deeply in love and happy to be in each other’s company. It really did make for such a beautiful day with them and their family! After a touching and emotional ceremony, thoughts turned to the wedding breakfast, held in the bright, light and airy conservatory of The Elvetham… and…. More Singing Waiters!!! Just… wow, Aaron and Keith, you’ve taken our breath away and we can’t wait to see you again!
What was your favorite part of your wedding?: Our favourite single part was the bit immediately after the ceremony, where they took us outside whilst they were organising the confetti. Our favourite overall thing about the wedding was that it was all about us. Not in a centre of attention way, but just that it moved at our pace. Everything happened when we wanted it to, and we were made to feel like royalty.
What made you choose your wedding venue and how did you come to the decision?: One of our best friends got married at The Elvetham a few years ago, so we had already been there and knew how stunning it was. We were slightly hesitant as many of our friends had also been to the same venue, however we used different rooms so it didn't feel the same, and the majority of our guests had never been there. The drive up to the venue is so impressive and continues once inside, plus it's about 5 minutes away from our house.
What made you choose your details and styling for your wedding at and how did you get inspiration for this?: Hours of researching online and using sites like Pinterest. We knew we wanted a Black & White theme but didn't want it to look dated. The details like kids outfits, sweet table, favours etc were all pretty easy. Our suppliers for stationary and the flowers were amazing at bringing what we wanted to life, once we'd met and shown them some ideas. The most difficult decision, which took the longest, was probably our suits. Being two guys we didn't know if we wanted the same, or similar, or totally different, and changed our minds numerous times, then on an unplanned trip to Guildford found the perfect suits by accident, and both loved them so in the end got the same.
Who were your other suppliers and vendors.: Flowers by Sarah's Floral Designs. Stationary by Elegant Stationary. Chair Covers by Chair Covers of Hampshire. Band - The Salvation. Videographer Daniel Mountain @ MountainVideoProductions
What did you like best about working with DM Photography?: The best part about working with DM was how easy to have around they were. They were so patient, but organised everyone for certain group shots and really blended in with our guests. It was like having 2 extra guests instead of photographers. They were great company and were excellent at helping us with all kinds of stuff on the day (like where to put my buttonhole, and whether or not to button up our jackets) The sample photos were emailed through so quickly afterwards and were amazing and we've received so many compliments from our guests as to how lovely the photographers were. Just wish we could do it all again!!
