Back in May, we planned Bianca and Jordan’s magical Jewish garden and ballroom wedding at Fairmont Windsor Park. We have worked with the family before, having planned Bianca’s sister’s wedding in Italy back in 2019, so we started with a great relationship which made the planning journey such a pleasure.
They married at the Fairmont having fallen in love with it straight away, wanting somewhere outside London with beautiful grounds for an outdoor ceremony and a big ballroom for all their friends and family. Many of their loved ones stayed over the weekend, making it feel like the celebrations were extended.
The colour theme for the wedding was rose gold and pink, and Bianca really wanted it to feel like an enchanted garden which we achieved with an abundant outdoor chuppah covered with pink peonies and roses. It was really important for them to have a ‘wow’ factor and for the chuppah to be extra large so all their grandparents could join them beneath it.
For the table centrepieces, we alternated high and low designs, incorporating candelabras with floral bases and tea light trees along with garlands of peonies and lots of candlelight. Guest favours (little stone coasters personalised with names) were made by Bianca’s father and were all loved and appreciated by guests. Big Day Designs designed the invitations and wedding day stationery.
On the day Bianca wore an Israeli-designed wedding dress by Berta, found at The Wedding Club in Knightsbridge. She always wanted a sparkly dress, and the strapless A-line corset gown was perfect.
Hair by Slo created a beautiful twisted half-up, half-down look, and Kourtney MUA provided wonderful make-up in soft glam which lasted all day. As Bianca’s ‘something borrowed’ she wore her sister’s wedding shoes, block heel Miu Mius that were comfortable as well as stylish. Her 7 bridesmaids wore blush pink multiway Lipsy dresses, allowing them all to wear them in a way that suited their bodies.
Club Live provided the entertainment, filling the dancefloor all night and bringing so much energy to the room. They created a perfect playlist combining current and classic to accommodate everyone, and Bianca and Jordan’s first dance was to ‘She’s The One’ by Robbie Williams.
The whole day was captured beautifully by Paul Santos and Denee Motion, giving them the modern and editorial style of imagery and videography they were looking for.
Special Words From The Couple
We asked Bianca and Jordan what their top piece of advice for to-be-married couples is, and how they found the experience working with us at Elegante by Michelle J. Here’s what they said:
“Just enjoy all the celebrations and the build-up. Try not to stress about the small things as no one notices and you will not even notice on the day. Just make sure to take every moment in and relax. Michelle was amazing and really helped guide us through the process and really understood our vision and what was important to us. The whole team was great on the day and made it really stress-free, any concerns we had Michelle would deal with it for us and we knew we were in the best hands.”
