Inspiration

Caroline and Tom had a truly mesmerising Jewish blessing in Banking Hall in London. From the incredible setting to the Military touches in honour of Toms military past, each detail was carefully thought out, wonderfully executed and perfectly captured. Trust us you don't want to miss it! And you certainly don't want to miss Caroline's Hayley Paige wedding dress - oh my, what a gown.

What Made Our Day Unique

The whole process started when we saw the venue and when I tried on my dress, both were the first. The first venue we visited and the first dress I tried on, and we just knew. The venue was so different to anything we had seen, it is an old bank with vast ceilings and an amazing art deco grand staircase which I could see myself walking down towards Tom. We really loved the architecture of the venue juxtaposed with the vision I had for the room which was softly structured flowers with a hint of gold and that caught the candlelight.

Jewish Blessing

Caroline and Tom had the most atmospheric Jewish blessing I have ever seen. The gorgeous Banking Hall with its incredible architecture and decor is literally mind-blowing, that's even before adding immense aisle floral arrangements, Caroline's exquisite Hayley Paige wedding dress and Carla's incredible photography skills. It was the perfect setting, but even surrounded by all this loveliness Caroline and Tom said the moment Caroline began to walk down the aisle they had tunnel vision and could only see each other. So lovely.

Inspiration & Styling

We see our day in 2 halves, the grand yet personal ceremony and the “can’t stop dancing” reception. We wanted to really saviour our ceremony and make sure it represented us, so everything leant towards that. From my entrance down those amazing stairs and the long aisle, our personal vows and, my Uncle leading the Jewish blessing at the end and the amazing flowers and candles framing everything. For our reception, we just wanted to party, and our band Groove Station certainly delivered. They describe themselves as a high-octane funk and soul band. They brought the house down with their infectious energy, slick arrangement and an amazing setlist.

Caroline & Tom have nothing but kind words to say about their wedding suppliers - "I’m someone that tends to know what they like when they see it and how it will look with all the other pieces, so choosing the people we wanted to work with was quite painless. Princess & Ko were amazing at understanding the structured but soft and romantic nature of our day. Wrapping the stairs with ivy with cascading candles all the way down the aisle. Carla our photographer and Brendan and Gary our videographers, were also very easy to choose as they both had similar styles of capturing intimate and gloriously happy moments whilst also taking into account the architectural surroundings." If you're still searching for suppliers you can trust, take a look at our handpicked supplier directory, The List, where you'll find lots of talented suppliers who'd love to hear from you and help you fulfil your wedding dreams including Entertainment Nation who provided the band for this city wedding.
