Su Su and Matt were married at the lovely Brown’s in Covent Garden on the 5th September 2014. The whole day certainly had a cool, London vibe with lots of stunning, unique and personal Burmese touches.
It began as a relatively calm morning at Su Su and Matt’s East London flat, with Su Su and her bridesmaids getting hair and make up done before getting in taxis and heading to their amazing wedding venue, the Court Rooms at Brown’s.
The ceremony was relaxed and the backdrop of the old court room was a wonderful setting! The whole day was filled with personalised efforts from family and friends, especially with little nods to Su Su’s heritage, which became all the more meaningful as Su Su’s parents were sadly, unable to attend. Su Su’s entrance music was Burmese traditional walk music played and sang by a family friend, and Su Su and Matt signed the register to the amazing sounds of the Burmese harp played by another family friend.
Shortly after the ceremony there was time for group photos and Matt, Su Su and her bridesmaids travelled by rickshaw to to nearby location of the beautiful Whitehall Gardens for more photos. This little excursion proved to be lots of fun! By the time we returned it was almost time for the wedding breakfast followed by speeches and cake cutting. The court room looked wonderful, with a huge wire elephant candle centrepiece adorning the head table made by a family friend, and the tables were named after Studio Ghibli characters!!
The evening entertainment was provided by Su Su’s lovely bridesmaid Lwin, who performed a Burmese traditional dance- the perfect warm up for Su Su and Matt’s first dance- a swing dance which they had practised and learnt especially. Su Su had also changed from her stunning Burmese dress to a vintage cream beaded dress.
I absolutely love the detail and thought that went into Matt and Su Su’s wedding, they were lots of fun to work with and full of ideas- thank you Su Su and Matt, I wish you every happiness for your married life!
