Over the years we have had the challenge presented where we have been required to complete a ceremony set up for a wedding and in a short space of time, turn the same room around for the wedding breakfast afterwards.
The Wedding of Johnny and Andreea featured was one such wedding. They had a traditional Sri Lankan ceremony at their wedding venue, the luxury hotel - The Sheraton Grand, London Park Lane.
They whisked their guests off to an Orthodox church not too far away for a church ceremony to honour Andreea's Romanian heritage, before returning to their wedding venue for their wedding breakfast and an evening of dancing and entertainment. Oh and not to forget that first thing in the day at the venue they treated all their guests to a breakfast meal too.
They certainly got us working! What made the logistics practical was teamwork. Our work with our production team, the wedding ceremony priests, the hotel staff, the caterers, DJ and Audio-Visual team had to be seamless. To achieve this we organised collaborative site visits and held a number of meetings to ensure the smooth running of the day.
It was a beautiful celebration of two cultures coming together in unity and love, a gorgeous fusion wedding and we have been privileged to do many multicultural and interracial weddings over the years. Now that is what you call diversity and inclusion at its best!
So if you are wondering if such a challenge can be achieved for your wedding day, the answer is YES! You just need to ensure you hire professionals with experience of doing this, and it also helps if your chosen vendors have previously worked together and have worked at your venue before. That is always a bonus.
