A Day & Night at The BAFTAs
For a theme with real star style why not have a BAFTA inspired wedding day with influences from these prestigious awards! For your venue you could opt to have your ceremony, wedding breakfast and reception all at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly. This wonderful venue is licenced and has a number of ceremony options including getting married on stage in their private cinema whilst all your guests watch on and enjoy a box of popcorn. Their reception room is light & airy with beautiful floor to ceiling windows and you could even have drinks in their hidden garden (depending on the weather of course)!
Wedding gowns fit for a superstar – trends for this year are all about romance & glamour with draped shoulder necklines, sleeves and big tulle skirts. Or a more angelic style with soft floaty fabrics for you to breeze down the aisle. Many designers are also offering different colour options like shimmering golds & silvers for a more vintage look – much like these beautiful wedding dresses from Pronovias Collection 2015.
For the Groom & Groomsmen – why not make it a black tie dress code with all the men dressed to impress in tuxedos. Treat yourself to a made to measure tuxedo from designers like Alexander McQueen or Tom Ford who regularly dress the stars for the red carpet. Or a wonderfully tailored tux from brands such as Hackett London or Paul Smith.
Roll out the red carpet for your guest’s arrival and have fake paparazzi waiting for them outside – they will love it! Then make an entrance by pulling up in a white Rolls Royce Phantom for that extra bridal entrance WOW factor. Go for a decedent wedding cake to match all the décor designed with sparkle and a hint of gold or silver.
Choose fabulous black tie themed invitations to include the red carpet dress code so that all your guests can join in with the style and fun of the day. Have your table centres & décor exude glamour with crystals and sparkle, and your tables could perhaps be named after award categories or your favourite winning films. Top off your table décor with little film themed clapboard place cards and chocolate BAFTA favours. Why not feel like stars for your Big Day – and the BAFTA goes to….
