REAL WEDDING: A BLACK TIE WEDDING AT DARTMOUTH HOUSE, LONDON
Marina booked me approximately 3 years before her vow renewal to Shane – I only wish she’d booked me even earlier as we formed a firm friendship over the years. I was sceptical at first as Marina hadn’t really told Shane she was arranging a vow renewal, but as soon as we started the process Shane became as enthusiastic as Marina. Once we visited Dartmouth House in London’s Mayfair the couple knew immediately that we’d found the perfect venue for their intimate black tie vow renewal, a day that was full of music, dancing and love.
Here’s what Marina and Shane had to say about the process of working with Caroline Sian Weddings & Events to plan their vow renewal:
“Caroline not only made our day the most incredible day of our lives, but she also gave us a beautifully planned and perfectly executed journey. She brought with her the exceptional experience she has in a fun and effortless way. The suppliers presented to us for options were flawless and all of our ideas and wishes were catered for.
It has been more than words could express to have had Caroline as our planner and I just wish we could do it all over again, the exact same way. I can only hope Shane and I renew our vows more often.
All the guests said what an amazing wedding it was and they had never been to one like it as it was all so wonderfully tailored for us.
On a personal note it was a great pleasure to work with Caroline not just on the day, but throughout the whole planning process, and on a professional note she truly is the best in the business as evidenced by her accolade. Her attention to detail did not go unnoticed and because of that Shane and I were free to enjoy the day, something the bride and groom often don’t get to do. We loved it sooo much and it was Caroline who made everything possible.”
