Bingham Hotel Wedding – Elba & Phil
This wasn’t my first Bingham Hotel wedding by a long chalk, but it was my first wedding where the grooms Father has given the bride away! Yes, I think to ensure that Elba didn’t have a last minute dash for freedom planned Phil’s family thought it best to get an insider in to do the job! Only joking (I hope LOL), Elba orginates from Columbia and that’s one heck of a journey for her family members to make so our stand in for the day was perfectly appointed for the post. Phil & Elba are celebrating in the U.S next year for her side of the family so they get the benefit of celebrating getting married twice! Sounds like a good idea to me (my wife reads these posts!)
In the morning I had a brief discussion with Elba about how it was absolutely ok to cry on your wedding day, as long as it was accompanied by equal, if not more, laughter as well. Being far from ‘home’ and taking face time calls from your best buddies back in Columbia was never going to go without a tear here and there, but true to form Elba ensured that the smiles won through. As she did pretty much for most of the day. Blissfully happy and quite unashamed to show it, Elba and Phil could quite easily have been in their own little bubble I think. Sure they popped out occasionally to join in with the beat of the day but essentially they were perfectly happy just being as one. And when you have that for a starting ground to married life, there is pretty much nothing you cannot take on together and amen to that.
As always the Bingham Hotel provides a perfect backdrop for your London nuptials, and the staff are without fail some of the friendliest and most efficient you can encounter.
