Harriet & Jonny’s Intimate Wedding
As with everything in 2020, due to coronavirus we were kept on our toes with this project. We rode the waves of the ever-changing event restrictions, an all too common consequence of the pandemic. And as a result, this was a wedding with an evolving and changing brief up until the day the bride walked down the aisle!
It started off as an Easter wedding for 200, then pushed back to a Christmas affair, then put on hold and postponed until the following year. But, in a sudden U-turn, we were back on the cards with 4 weeks to plan…. all within Covid regulations. Bring it on.
The result was something special, no doubtedly made even more so because of the pandemic. Everyone was celebrating this wonderful couple tying the knot, and the chance to simply be together and celebrate. So, our job was to make the day feel seamless, intimate, stylish (and, of course, Covid safe).
We were given free rein with the design, with the bride and groom requesting “vibrant” and “festival-chic”, as well as entrusting the Marble team to use their eye and creative flair.
Nothing suits an intimate wedding more than the circular shape of the beautiful and striking wooden beamed pavilion, complete with open sides and decked out with a huge central hanging glitterball inspired flower arrangement.
The wedding that went from a 200 person evening Easter bonanza turned into a cosy, sunny day celebration. It was complete with a picnic hamper ‘bubble’ lunch, acoustic tunes floating in the air (thank you Marble Music!), and a choreographed ‘Friends NYE’ first dance that Ross and Monica would have been proud of. In homage to the popular TV hit show we can call this episode…. ‘The One where Love Prevailed (and Beat the Pandemic)’.
