Surprise wedding styled by Etiquette Events
Did you miss Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway? Let's catch you up! On Friday 21st January we received an exciting call from ITV asking us if we would like to be involved in styling a surprise live on-air wedding for Saturday Night Takeaway on Saturday 19th February - It was a very easy "HELL YES!". We were extremely grateful to be given the opportunity to be a part of this incredible surprise for such a deserving couple! Due to Covid-19, unfortunately, they have had their wedding canceled multiple times, costing them £28,000 - So as you can imagine when we were asked there was no question, we had to try to make this the most magical moment for them both to cherish.
"So let's bring you back to the start!"
After our exciting phone call with ITV, we went away and started brainstorming ideas on how we could transform Chiswick House and Garden into their dream wedding setting. We were given some pointers from fiancé Nick "Neutral and natural". Given that brief, we created this mood board which was filled with foliage, white flowers and, candlelight.
Now it was time to turn this vision into reality (I promise you won't be disappointed with the end result...)
THE BIG DAY! (London here we come!)
We arrive at Chiswick House and Garden on the morning of Saturday 19th February and waste no time on getting to work to bring this vision to life! Here are some behind-the-scenes photos caputured by the incredible Patrick Partridge Photography.
The moment you have been waiting for - the BIG surprise! At the start of Saturday Night Takeaway, Ant and Dec pulled Vicky down to join them on the stage to talk about how her plans to get married had been ruined due to the pandemic, with multiple cancellations and their wedding venue going bust - costing herself and her fiancé Nick £28,000. Her fiancé Nick was supposed to be in Miami, but to her surprise, they bought him up on a live video link whereby he revealed his big secret - He got down on one knee to tell her that he was in fact in the UK at Chiswick House and Garden with all their friends and family, and wanted to finally get married that very night.
Ant then told Vicky "We've been secretly planning with Nick and your bridesmaids for the last few months and pulled out all the stops to get you everything from your original wedding wishes." They then proceeded to tell Vicky that she had 45 minutes to get ready to say 'I do' (I know what you're thinking... 45 minutes!!) - But they smashed it out the bag! They had a helicopter waiting outside to take her to the venue, and an incredible team on hand to get her ready.
Time to say 'I do! 💍'
The moment the couple had been waiting for, it was finally time to tie the knot! - with fiancé Nick waiting at the end of the aisle, Vicky walks down the aisle behind her bridesmaids looking stunning! (I don't think there was a dry eye in sight!) Patrick Partridge Photography captured the moment perfectly!
It may have not been the wedding they had originally planned, but it was a moment they will never forget. The happy couple finally got to tie the knot in-front of all their loved ones in the most magical setting - What more could you hope for? - Credits - TV Show - ITV Saturday Night Takeaway Venue - Chiswick House and Garden Venue Styling - Etiquette Events Photographer - Patrick Partridge Photography
