Showcase Wedding – Isabel Smith Weddings
I’m delighted to share with you today a wedding organised by the lovely Isabel from Isabel Smith Weddings who is also one of our long term members.
Louisa and Dominic’s wedding was a pretty, country affair which took place at The Olde Bell in Hurley in May 2013.
Since Louisa’s family are Jewish, we arranged a Jewish blessing to follow the civil ceremony – complete with kippahs for all the male guests and a glass smash.
They had selected a (dare I say it?!) ‘vintage’ theme for the day. I am not actually a huge fan of this style overall, but the key escort cards and absolutely incredible floral displays by the ever-so-talented Philippa Craddock did look fab.
Whilst the guests enjoyed absolutely perfectly cooked lamb (I was really impressed by the team at The Olde Bell – it wasn’t an easy time for the business since it was for sale at the time, but they really did us proud!), we got ‘The Great Wedding Bake-off’ set-up. Louisa and Dom had asked every guest to bring a cake or cupcakes could act as a wedding cake. The best entry was crowned, and cut, as the wedding cake.
The highlight for me (beyond the cakes!) was the band – I had worked with Get Funked before and they are an absolute delight!
