The Brief
To turn The Churchill into a sparkling glamorous backdrop for a wedding

The Party
Both the wedding ceremony and the party were happening in the ballroom of the hotel. We wanted there to be a clear difference between the two sections of the day so while we went glitzy and glamorous for the party the ceremony had much subtler décor with lots of candles, trees and soft amber lighting. As guests were making their way to their seats, the London Gay Men’s Chorus sang a medley of fantastic songs which had everyone dancing in their seats and singing along! Amongst the readings from friends and family during the ceremony, we also had a singer from the West End performing a song that was of particular significance to the couple.

Once the ceremony was over, and the guests were enjoying their drinks and canapes, we removed the false wall we had built to hide the stage and set for the party and began turning the room round. The set consisted of the entire wall behind the stage being draped in taut white material with break up panels made of shimmer discs. Built into the backdrop was a large screen with a silver glitter frame to match the rest of the room. The stage was finished in white carpet and silver glitter stage boards and there was even a silver glitter DJ booth to match. In the space of an hour the space was transformed and completely unrecognisable to how it had been only moments earlier. The guest’s faces when they came back in proved just how different we had made it!

Just before the grand entrance, the guests were treated to a short video montage detailing how the couple had met 20 years ago, and their journey leading up to their wedding day. Guests then enjoyed a delicious three course dinner interspersed with fantastic speeches by family and friends. After dessert and the final speech, guests were treated to one last surprise – a drag act performing a medley of Whitney Houston songs along with one of the main singers from West End show Motown singing too. Guests were all handed glow sticks to help them get in the spirit and they danced into the early hours!
