Charlotte and Jordan’s Wedding

Unique ceremonies for all occasions

Chateau la Durantie

2nd August 2019

Charlotte and Jordan from Chelmsford celebrated their wedding with a week-long stay at Chateau la Durantie and the most incredible wedding day extravaganza EVER!

When we first chatted the couple had requested a ”traditional, relaxed romantic and humourous” ceremony which would set the tone for the rest of their day. And fortunately they were absolutely thrilled with their ceremony, which like all my ceremonies, started with a blank piece of paper, and was created and written especially for them. 

The whole event was planned and styled by the very talented Samantha Bottomley of Best Events Co and no expense was spared, or detail overlooked, to ensure that Jordan and Charlotte really did have the fairytale wedding of their dreams.

And of course, it all started with the ceremony…

What the couple had to say…

”’Jordan and I would like to thank you for creating the most beautiful ceremony for us. All 100 guests have commented saying it was the best ceremony they had ever been a part of! 

From the initial emails, Skype calls and homework 😉 you really got to know us and this made our ceremony so personal. You captured everything that we dreamt of, it was romantic, humorous and intimate.

Lisa we really can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work, you really set the tone for the rest of our day…

We can’t recommend you enough! xxxxxx”

And a few words from the mother of the bride…

”Your ceremonies are truly bespoke and beautiful from start to finish. I’ve never heard so many guests comment on the service! 

Thank you so much for making Charlotte and Jordan’s wedding so wonderful xx ❤️💙

The Ceremony

Charlotte and Jordan’s wedding ceremony was the result of months of meticulous planning; working with Charlotte both together and individually, and also of working in secret with some of their guests. 

What was achieved on the day was a completely bespoke ceremony; which told their unique love story with honesty, warmth and humour. Their entire ceremony, along with some fantastic contributions from friends and family, was delivered as a complete surprise, and Charlotte, Jordan and ALL their assembled guests, were absolutely over the moon with the energy, style and tone of the event. 

All the guests laughed and cried in all the rigt places (including even a few of Jordan’s hardy football team mates) and absolutely everyone was swept up in the emotion of what was in the end, a very beautiful and touching ceremony.

So many of the guests approached me after the ceremony to say that it was the best ceremony they’d ever attended, and do you know what, I think it might just have been one of mine too 🙂
