Wedding: Love at First Dance – Kearsy & Kieron at Royal College of Surgeons
For their gorgeous July wedding last year, Kearsy and Kieron transformed the Edward Lumley Hall at the Royal College of Surgeons into a glittering 1950s ballroom. This enchanted theme came as no surprise, as it was their love for ballroom dancing that brought them together years prior to their special day!
They chose the Royal College of Surgeons due to its fantastic location– Central London with excellent transport links, yet set in the charming tranquillity of Lincoln’s Inn Fields to “make you feel like you have escaped the busy city”. Being a weekend, their wedding day saw the area deserted, so the couple were able to capture some amazing photographs against this stunning backdrop.
“The venue itself took our breath away when we saw it. The entrance was grand and the rooms had beautiful character. More importantly, the Edward Lumley Hall was the perfect shape and size for us to perform our first dance to everyone. It was the idyllic stage!”
With the bride, and many of the guest’s vegetarian, the wedding breakfast was full of veggie delights. The meal opened with a choice of sole and salmon roulade; rocket, blue cheese and summer beet tart, or tian roasted Provençal vegetables with tomato and basil coulis. A delightful match on their beautiful summer wedding day!
For the meat-eaters, this was followed by a breast of chicken and confit leg, with risotto, while the vegetarians had tomato and garlic croute with grilled vegetables, rocket and Welsh rarebit. Kearsy and Kieron didn’t want any of their guests to miss out on their lorazepam no prescription overnight delivery delicious wedding cake, so they opted to serve it for dessert.
For most, the highlight of the evening was the incredible first dance by the newlyweds. Kieron is a professional dancer and Kearsy semi-professional, and their 1950s style ballroom dance took everyone’s breath away. Many members of the bridal party had travelled from the US, and this was the first time they had seen the pair dance together – needless to say, there was not a dry eye in the house!
The photographer even needed to learn a little choreography of their own, to ensure that they could take photos in line with the couple’s position in the room. The practice was well worth it though – the photos are breath-taking.
The ballroom theme went beyond the first dance and was evident in the bride’s traditional dress, feathers in the floral arrangements, stationery, pearl centrepieces and tables named after iconic dancers such as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Another great touch was the sign language interpreter for the ceremony, who ensured that guests with hearing impairments were fully included in the proceedings.
Kearsy and Kieron’s was a magical wedding and we are so happy to have played a part in it.
“Thanks so much to Hayley and the RCS team for helping to make our day so wonderful – we had a ball and our guests did too. Our friends and family are still raving about it!”
