Katalin and Onno were married on a wintery November day at the Alexander House Hotel, East Grinstead.
When Katalin first approached me about her wedding, I was promised it would be a very European affair, and I was not disappointed! Katalin herself being of Hungarian and Russian heritage, and her fiancé Onno being of both Swiss and Dutch heritage- the wedding party was a cosy yet delightful mixture of family and friends from all over the world. Some of the highlights involved lots of amazing speeches and presentations put together by loved ones, including a dance flashmob complete with confetti bomb! Onno’s father was unable to attend due to health, so during the reception the wedding party toasted him with a vintage red that had been saved by the family for a truly special occasion.
Katalin and Onno had decorated the tables according to each of the countries that their families shared affinity with- traditional tulips and clogs adorned the Dutch table, Russian dolls for the Russian table, chilli’s and embroidery for the Paprika table- Hungary, and the Swiss table represented with chocolate! Also, the origami cranes on the cake were made by Katalin and Onno too!
It really was an amazing day, the backdrop of the beautiful Alexander House suited the understated elegance of the wedding perfectly. Katalin and Onno are a lovely couple with a brilliant sense of humour and the whole day was filled with laughter and smiles all round- so much emotion!
After sending the usb I was delighted to receive this email…
We’ve received your package yesterday and stayed up oh-so-late looking at the amazing photos (we put them on a slide show, cuddled up on the sofa with a glass of wine, as per your instructions 🙂 )
We are completely blown away, you did an absolutely amazing job, thank you so much! The packaging was gorgeous too and thank you for your incredibly sweet card!
