Claire and Paddy eloped at The Sacred Heart Church in Bushey followed by a fun filled reception at the Laura Ashley Hotel, an old Tudor manor house in Elstree, Borehamwood. The bride wore a beautiful layered Hayley Paige gown with a stunning pair of white and gold Ted Baker heels. Turquoise bridesmaids dresses complimented the ivory and blush bouquets perfectly. The groom rocked a charcoal grey tux, matching top hat and a snazzy pair of ‘La La Land’ inspired jazz shoes! Just as we were about to leave for the church, a pink Cadillac arrived to chauffeur Claire to the venue…this bride certainly knows how to arrive in style!
The couple had a traditional Catholic ceremony with heartfelt readings by close friends and family members along with some amazing guitar playing courtesy of Paddy’s best man. After the ceremony, the guests made their way to enjoy Champagne and canapes in the sunshine. The dining room was decorated with white and pink rose floral arrangements and turquoise sashes adorned the chairs, providing the perfect backdrop for the guests three course meal. Paddy’s band kicked off the evening’s entertainment with some amazing live music before the couple had their first dance as husband and wife. To everyone’s surprise, the bride and groom had choreographed an incredible routine which got everyone up on the dance floor!
Claire and Paddy’s wedding was full of fun, laughter and some pretty awesome dance moves! Thanks guys, I had such a great time documenting your big day.
