One of our beautiful Jewish weddings was featured on the amazing blog, Smashing the Glass. Julie and James came to us about a year prior to their summer wedding for full wedding planning assistance. The hardest part of the wedding planning process is always the venue search. Julie, our bride, didn’t want a big London Jewish wedding and wanted something a little more low key. Her dream was a vineyard in France, but in the UK.
The previous year, we had worked at a beautiful wedding venue in Cambridge, called Longstowe Hall. I thought this could work perfectly for them. Not quite a vineyard, but the chance to have an outdoor ceremony by the lake and then a party in a gorgeous marquee attached to the house.
I love planning Jewish weddings and whilst I am not Jewish, I understand the cultural aspects of it and I have to say Jewish weddings are my favourite. There is something vert beautiful about a jewish wedding ceremony. Clearly, an important part of a Jewish wedding ceremony is the Chuppah, symbolising the house the couple will build together.
The florist trusted to create this beautiful chutzpah was Bev at Jades florists. We have worked together before and she has created some gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremonies for me.
Building a clients team of suppliers is a really important part of the planning process, because it is about building a team and not just hiring several individual suppliers. They have to compliment each other and work well together. For this wedding I pulled together a dream team; Ambassador Band in charge of all music, I love these guys.

The food was provided by the amazing Ed from Feast. I hadn’t worked with them before but they were just wonderful and I can’t wait to work with them again and finally the photos you see here from Paul Rogers.
Paul and I have worked on many weddings together now and no one shoots a party quite like Paul.
