Winter wedding at the iconic Banqueting House

Ezmaii and Jordan contacted me in 2021 to help plan their Banqueting House wedding, which they postponed from July 2020. The couple wanted the December wedding at Banqueting House to be simple and elegant, with a focus on family. They wanted to have their ceremony in the historic London venue because it offered a unique setting.

The Perfect Combination of Classic Elegance and Luxurious Details

I’ve worked with Ezmaii’s sister before, so I knew that the two would be a blast to work with – and they were! They had many ideas, but they were also open to my suggestions. We had a lot of fun planning this Banqueting House wedding together! It was great getting to know each other over the course of our planning process.

Guests were greeted on arrival by traditionally dressed footmen,- the guest loved them!

The day of the ceremony was even more beautiful than I could have imagined. Banqueting House is truly breathtaking – with so many different spaces for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour or dinner.

Ezmaii said it best when she told me that her favourite part about her big day was that everyone there felt like a family. That’s exactly what happens with every event that I plan, and I love it. It’s always so much fun to see people having a good time! I am so grateful that my couples let me share this experience with them.

Ezmaii had three dresses for her December wedding at Banqueting House – one that was originally purchased in 2020, one bought new in 2021, and another traditional dress. All three were equally stunning and fit her beautifully.

Creating A Magical December Wedding At Banqueting House

The ceremony took place in the main Reuben Hall at Banqueting House in London. It is an iconic wedding venue with high ceilings and tall windows that let in plenty of natural light. The atmosphere was elegant, emotional, and romantic, and I loved every minute of it. Ezmaii and her husband were surrounded by their family and friends, all of whom were there to celebrate the couple’s, mutual love.

Mary Jane Vaughn Floral Designs provided the flowers and made sure that the arrangements were colourful and fresh.

We worked with Bubble for the catering; they did an incredible job providing delicious canapés and drinks throughout the evening as well as a wonderful 3-course meal that included a creative dessert buffet for guests to help themselves to..

Delirious Weddings stepped in the week before the wedding when the original videographer, unfortunately, got covid! Their work is always excellent; so we knew we would get some amazing footage for Ezmaii and Jordan’s wedding film. They filmed everything from family arrivals to speeches, cake cutting, first dances – everything that makes up a wedding day!

An Elegantly Layered Marriage Celebration

The cake was made by Foux Du fafa, who specializes in wedding cakes. To be honest, it was delicious and on top of that – it looked amazing!

In the evening entertainemnt was provided by The White Keys band via Sternberg Clarke- the dance floor was packed all night!

This London wedding was all about celebrating with family and friends; Ezmaii and Jordan are both very close with their families, which made it even more special. They had a ton of fun dancing the night away with their guests!
