During the reception, Alex and Rosie wanted their guests to feel ‘entertained’ so as they arrived at the reception venue, they were greeted by top magician Richard Young. At the same time, and then throughout dinner, a cocktail pianist called Rowan Kennard was hired to play motown Christmas hits and a selection of easy listening such as Rod Stewart, Frank Sinatra and Burt Bacarach to name a few. After dinner and the speeches, a caricaturist from Magical Memories went round the table capturing guests as cartoon versions of themselves. To keep the children entertained Rosie had prepared a box of games such as Connect4, Who’s Who and Hungry Hippos.
There was a deep red and ivory theme running through out the wedding day and into the evening. Rosie is a marketing director wanted to ‘brand’ their wedding so they commissioned their own designer who they worked closely with to create everything from invitations, save the dates and order of service to car park signs, table plan and thank you letters in their own unique design.
