One Whitehall Place wedding | Sarah and Nigel

Sarah and Nigel’s One Whitehall Place wedding was one with many children – their own son and those of many of their guests.  It was fascinating to watch them throughout the day, finding their own ways to fit into the drinks reception and dinner.  Sarah and Nigel had brilliantly arranged a children’s entertainer for immediately after the meal in a separate room. Sarah’s beautiful bouquet was by Drake Algar and her dress from the Vintage Wedding Dress Company.

When it was time for the speeches, despite the best man’s best efforts, Sarah and Nigel’s son Rohan had their attention.
