We knew very little about Jane and Brendan’s wedding plans except the date and venue. It wasn’t until the booking form came through (I shrieked a little and called Mike to come and have a look – it looked AMAZING!) that we knew the full details. With three sets planned for the day, outfits and strong links to the 1994 film (Brendan was an extra!) we were incredibly excited and couldn’t wait for May! I’ve always been a huge fan of the film so it was something of a dream to hear Jane and Brendan’s plans. We were looking forward to the wedding ALL. YEAR.
The plans for the day were inspired by Secret Cinema and the immersive film experiences. Most of the wedding plans were kept a secret from the guests, Jane and Brendan only revealed little details as and when necessary. All guests were assigned a family, either Capulet or Montague. To maintain a level of mystery guests were collected by coaches and dropped off at ‘Sycamore Beach’ at the venue; a collection of food trucks, thatched-roofed bars and palm trees reminiscent of the rundown beach from the film.
The day itself was one of the most relaxed and fun days we’ve ever attended, with no formalities beyond the hilarious ceremony by John Sizzle, the rest of the day was a party in the barn with performances by Stella Meltdown, Margo Marshall and DJ A Man to Pet. A low key first dance to Kissing you by Desiree, performed by Anna Yeats, was, for me as a big Romeo and Juliet fan – an awesome touch.
To plan such a day as brand new parents to little Seb was very impressive, and hats off to Jane and Brendan for pulling off such an incredible day.
We were so happy to be there, and be involved in a day so different to every wedding we’ve ever photographed!
