Okay, Jodie and Sam came up with what just might be the BEST end-of-night snack to send home with guests at a Jewish wedding: bagels and lox! What better snack after a long night of partying? WANT!
Snack genius aside, we’re in love with the couple’s gorgeous wedding at one of our very favourite London venues, Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor The Brewery. Jodie describes her venue as “everything we wanted and more,” and we think that’s a spot-on description – The Brewery really does have it all, from an amazing central London location to ultra-attentive service to a whole range of beautiful spaces you can use for all the various elements of the Jewish wedding day.
Jodie and Sam wanted their big day to be all about love, and that comes through so strongly in their photos by Gantcho Beltchev and their sensational video by Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor Minty Slippers – seriously, don’t miss this trailer; it captures the love between the couple and the joy everyone in the room felt for them so perfectly.
We also love that Jodie and Sam wrote and delivered a joint speech together!
Now over to the bride, who looked exquisite in Maggie Sottero…
A London Wedding
Jodie, the bride: After a year of planning, on 10th June 2018 we pulled off a modern Jewish wedding in the most amazing venue in central London at The Brewery, Chiswell Street. After lots of searching for the perfect venue, The Brewery was everything we wanted and more and we could picture the whole day as we stood there in awe of the potential of the space in front of us.
Family and Friends
We wanted a day that wasn’t just the best day of our lives but also an amazing day for our family and friends and more than anything, more than the food, the drink and the dancing, we wanted love to be the most prominent theme of the day.
A Maggie Sottero Dress
I wore a dress from Mia Sposa by Maggie Sottero, called Morocco. It was the dress of my dreams and I knew that it was the one as soon as I put it on!
The handsome groom
Sam wore the most gorgeous tuxedo with a velvet jacket and black brocade bow tie and waistcoat from Tux Lux.
Our music choice
We had chazan Moshe Caplan, and a keyboard player and saxophone at the ceremony; then for the reception Jam Hot Band, who was the best live band we had ever seen at a wedding and who kept everyone on their feet all night; an amazing hip hop DJ who played until past midnight.
Sam and I spent many evenings creating all of our stationery for the day, which were printed by Leeming Bros, and we carried on our foliage and rose gold theme throughout the wedding and in everything we created.
We had live music and an open photobooth with super fun props.
Photography and videography
We had amazing canapes, cocktails, a sushi bar at the drinks reception; the most amazing food for dinner catered by Adam Zeitlin. Sorbet shots, churros and cafe patron being were served on the dance floor and going home smoked salmon bagels to finish off the night.
We wrote a joint speech and I loved being able to stand up there together as a team, next to my husband, thanking everyone for all of their love and support. Everything that was in our heads became a reality and we were so lucky that we were able to pull off such a day.
