A Modern Fairytale | twobirds at Banqueting House

We had the pleasure of being invited to take part in the Historic Royal Palaces Wedding Showcase at Banqueting House last month and it's fair to say we felt like Princesses for the day!

A few weeks prior, a beautiful invitation by Piccolo Press arrived heralding the beginning of our Cinderella moment and we were so excited to showcase our lovely dresses alongside Sassi Holford's incredible designs and exquisitely tailored suits by Apsley Tailors on the catwalk before joining the rest of the guests in the Main Hall.

We don't know what we loved more about the Main Hall.. It was impossible to choose a favourite between the spectacular ceiling painted by Sir Peter Paul Rubens or the lovely flowers by Philippa Craddock on top of the most beautiful sage and blush tablescapes.

We were treated with a champagne drinks reception provided by Moët-Hennessy and canapés by Blue Strawberry before settling down to a delicious meal followed by a fantastic party where it's entirely possible we may have spent more than our fair share of time in the Lucky Voice video booth...
