Madeline and Stefan, Hampton Court Palace, 12th May 2024

Madeline and Stefan's first dance, the Garden Room, Hampton Court Palace

Madeline and Stefan got MARRIED!

Madeline and Stefan tied the knot at the world class Hampton Court Palace near London on a very sunny Sunday, surrounded by all their friends and family. The celebrations started with the wedding ceremony in the glorious Little Banqueting House on the banks of the river Thames, and continued with a drinks reception, wedding breakfast, and evening party in The Garden Room.

Having met Madeline and Stefan about a year ago, they booked me to provide my all day service at Hampton Court Palace. I ran the ceremony music in Little Banqueting House, provided background music throughout the day, acted as Madeline and Stefan’s Master of Ceremonies, and DJ’d the evening party.

Madeline and Stefan, thank YOU so much for choosing me to help with your big day. It was such a pleasure working with you and celebrating with your fabulous guests.
