There is definitely something magical about a Winter wedding and my feature wedding today certainly delivered with bundles of romance, glamour & sparkle!
Preparations began early at London Hilton Syon Park and a gentle frost glistened across Kew Gardens, as Syon House stood prominent and proud in the bright winter blue sky.
A romantic chill of anticipation and expectation swept through the hotel & filled the bridal suite, as the Bridal party sipped on champagne and prepared themselves for the exciting day ahead.
Before making his way to the ceremony, the groom celebrated with family & friends in the traditional Lebanese manner with an array of food, drink & shisha.
350 guests filled St Barnabas Pimlico Church in Chelsea, and witnessed the traditional wedding ceremony taking place before travelling to London Hilton Syon Park to celebrate with the beautiful couple.
Fresh Lebanese canapés and drinks prepared by Noura, were served to the wedding guests as they arrived at the venue, whilst Mr & Mrs El Lamaa captured the last of the winter sun in their walk around the grounds of Syon Park.
The Grand Ballroom was lit beautifully in pink & decorated to match the glamorous black, white & silver sparkle theme. Stunning tall vases filled with white roses, gerbera daisies & hydrangeas stood proudly on each of the 30 tables, surrounded by Swarovski crystals.
Soulful Jazz music by the Dan Blaax trio filled the room as guests enjoyed a plethora of Lebanese Mezze dishes freshly prepared by London's Noura Lebanese Restaurants.
After the reception dinner and speeches the guests were in for another surprise as doors to the foyer opened to display a stunning fruit platter table, a sweet bar, chocolate fountain and a fully stocked drinking bar.
Celebrations continued late into the night with everyone up from their seats and dancing as the Lebanese band played! A photo booth captured the special moments of the night & cigars were handed round the men outside.
It was a true pleasure to work with such a beautiful couple, both inside and out. There is something truly contagious about Chloe & Eddie & the love they share. From start to finish their Wedding day was filled with love, laughter and a whole lot of dancing! Mr & Mrs El Lamaa set the bar for Glamorous Winter Weddings and I am delighted to say I was a part of it.
Thank you to all of the suppliers & staff at London Hilton Syon Park for your tireless work and support in the run up to and during the Wedding Day. Special thanks go to John Nassari who provided the stunning photography, everyone at Noura, Dan Blaax, and all family & friends of the couple that helped out.
