Patrice & Ted’s theatrical masquerade wedding

23 May
Just like a classic love-story, these sweethearts first met at a family party when Patrice was four and Ted was three. They were re-united twelve years later and have been together ever since!

Drawing upon a passion for the dramatic arts and years experience working in theatrical production Patrice & Ted festively said “i do” in late October on an outdoor stage under a large tree. Black pumpkins lead the way where masquerade mask wearing guests waited anxiously for the ceremony to begin. When the bagpipes began to sing Ted and his men arrived looking so charming wearing kilts.

I just love the way Ted smiles when he first sees Patrice as she walks down the aisle arm-in-arm with her dad. She looked stunning in her gown having personalized it with peacock feathers, teal lace gloves and carrying a gorgeous bouquet she created using vintage brooches. Patrice & Ted became one with a pagan wedding ceremony while standing on a sweet wedding rug the bride’s mother hand-stitched. Afterwards, guests were given pennies and invited to send the newlyweds best wishes as they tosses the coins into a nearby pond.

And then the masquerade celebration began!

      Oh Wendy, it was such a pleasure creating this film and I just loved that you were part of the process! It was amazing to see where Patrice gets her creativity and craftiness from :)

    I recognize those first two songs from the Rob Roy movie soundtrack and from Enya’s album The Celts, wonderfully fitting song choices. This looks like it was a very unique and personal wedding, you really get a sense of who they are as a couple through this film.

    Fabulously done as always Bridget!

      You have a great ear Matthew! It was really fun selecting the music for this one, especially since the couple and wedding were so creative & unique.
