Sometimes we’re asked what makes a good wedding for us. Our answer is a bride and groom that just relax and really enjoy the day. Olga certainly did exactly that. She loved having her photo taken, loved wearing her dress and loved all the other things that she and Alexey had chosen for their wedding. As a result we’ve got too many favourites to show them all, so here are a few to look at and when we have time we’ll put together a short slideshow for you.
This is Alexey with his mother and his son Sacha while you can see Alexey’s father in the reflection.
Olga is the only bride we’ve seen to have danced down the aisle.
At the Chancery Court Hotel, hidden away, is a very magnificent marble staircase.
There is also a great evening bar that Chancery Court were kind enough to give us exclusive use of for a while.
On the main home page to captureit.co.uk you see a photo of Alexey & Olga’s friends Simon & Iryna running around at Temple Church. Alexey & Olga were also up for a bit of fun, running around the hotel courtyard.
Actually, Olga seems to be doing most of the running with Alexey just trying to hang on!
During the reception, the guests shout a Russian word that literally means ‘sour’. The only way to sweeten things is for the bride and groom to kiss although we’re not sure if Sacha altogether approves.
Later during the reception the excellent Incognito Artists started to sing and get all guests to join in too.
Naturally, Olga & Alexey did a brilliant first dance.
Girls if the bride decides to throw her bouquet it would be nice to at least feign some interest!
