A Stunning 1920's Wedding in London - Claire and Darren
Claire is from a gorgeous big family and her 5 sisters all wore gorgeous navy dresses that perfectly compliment her two bridesmaid's dresses that were purchased from J Crew. Darren wore a smart Spencer Hart of Saville Row suit, purchased from Liberty and his groomsmen wore their own navy suits, including his best man in a kilt!
Then, as a surprise to Claire her 5 sisters got up during the speeches to sing her favourite song ‘Moon River’, accompanied by ukuleles,which had everyone in floods of tears and grandparents and parents feeling incredibly proud. A little video of it can be seen here and I love watching it and re livign the goosebumps I got on the night.
Then finally, as a last surprise of the day and to really get the evening celebrations going, Claire and Darren coordinated a first dance that was done flashmob style with friends to 'You Give a Little Love' from the movie Bugsy Malone. It was incredible to see people slowly join in in perfect unison and got the whole crowd on their feet clapping and cheering!
