Phyllis Court Wedding // Alfie & James

A hot Friday afternoon in July, a perfect day for messing about on the river. Or getting married by it. That is what Alfie and James did and they picked Phyllis Court, a member’s club on the river in Henley on Thames, as the spot to do it. The glass Pavilion is right on the river’s edge and was to be the location for both the ceremony and the wedding reception. Wall to wall glass, it has incredible views and is light and airy. Alfie and James both got ready in the main club, Anna with her girls and James with his best man and ushers. The morning was a hive of activity, and with the couple sharing gifts and cards via an entrusted bridesmaid, excitement levels were high. Alfie’s bridesmaids looked amazing in metallic silver slip dresses and the bride herself looked incredible. So much so that on seeing her, her father got all emotional, which set Alfie off too. Thank goodness for waterproof mascara. Out into the heat of the day, the girls walked (or rather conga’d) their way down to the Pavillion, where James, all tuxed up and looking very dashing, was waiting rather nervously for his bride.

The ceremony was both funny and emotional, with lots of laughter from everyone. Once the register was signed, there was a shower of confetti over the newlyweds and not long after a shower of rain which quickly turned into a torrential downpour, which fortunately passed as quickly as it arrived. On to dinner, where Sam Moore at Doyle’s of London had created beautiful displays of pink and white roses and hydrangeas, with tables named after districts in New York, the city Alfie and James would be calling home after the wedding. The speeches had everyone laughing crying,and cheering – a lot of love in the room for these two. I was joined on the day by Denis and his team, the excellent wedding videographers Deneemotion, who I’d highly recommend for any couples wanting beautiful cinematography on their day. The evening continued with cake and dancing and some photo booth action. A brilliant couple, I had a lot of fun at Alfie and James’ Phyllis court wedding. My favourites from the day  are below
