If there’s one thing we’re certain of, it’s that Adam & Ali certainly know how to throw a party. For these two grooms, showcasing their love as well as their culture, heritage and personality was so important. But, they wanted to do this in more unconventional ways so their guests would have fun the whole day. Adam & Ali chose Recommended Venue, Braxted Park, as their wedding venue and chose a classic monochrome colour scheme with pops of colour through their flowers. When asked to describe the vibe of the wedding day, the couple said, “Loud”. It was just a day of total celebration and partying.

Every part of the wedding day was so different. The smoke bombs were amazing. We bought 20 different coloured smoke bombs and had friends and family hold them high up and run, which celebrated the LGBTQIA+ factor in the wedding.

Turkish & Jewish Gay Wedding

Adam & Ali’s wedding was all about bringing their two cultures together. The wedding captured every element of both grooms’ religion, personalities and families which was really important to them. During the ceremony, Ali’s sister and cousin read out the Turkish blessing while Adam’s sister and father read out the Hebrew blessing. The couple described the vibe of their day as loud. They started off the evening with traditional Turkish drummers for a 20-minute pre-party before the wedding breakfast. Despite the fun and entertainment, the couple did keep some things classic with their white suit jackets.

Fun-Filled Braxted Park Wedding

Adam & Ali both agree that the most epic part of their wedding day was the wedding breakfast entrance they did with the drummers. It completely set the tone for the rest of the evening and everyone was buzzing to party and dance all night long. None of the guests knew about the Turkish drummers! It was the best surprise. Adam & Ali also had their first dance to Crazy in Love by Beyoncé. Ultimately, every supplier brought something unforgettable to the wedding day! From the band, the flowers, the suits, the photographer, the cake, the venue, Adam & Ali are so grateful to all their incredible wedding suppliers.
