"Absolutely magical" is how Rupa describes the couple's elaborate wedding reception at the Pavilion. "We were married in the House of Lords on the afternoon of the reception, so we were on a high as we were driving towards Kensington Palace.
We drove down in an open top car towards the Pavilion entrance and our guests were making their way down in buggies alongside us. Chooseing a unique venue played a really important part in having a memorable experience, and unforgettable moments for every single guest."
"Kensington Palace was an amazing way to celebrate with our nearest and dearest. We wanted to see our guests interact with the event in different ways. We had international food stations, including a large dessert display, and even a Mr Whippy ice-cream stand!
The theme was also 'secret cinema' so we had screens running our favourite shows with instrumental music. Throughout the evening, we had performances including glow-in-the-dark dancers. It was also awesome to see our monogram projected on the side wall of the palace as the evening turned to night."
"There are very few locations so central and convenient when entertaining 650 guests in London. The team at Historic Royal Palaces is second to none. They ensured everything was stress free and enjoyable. They worked with us to create an event celebrated with family worldwide."
The couple were given special access to the King's State Apartments containing conspicious displays of Royal grandeur, for a private photo shoot.
The Next Day
'To help our guests feel hydrated the day after, we thought we'd give them a helping hand. We sent our guests home with a hangover kit containing: paracetemol, alkaline water, eye masks and a whole host of other goodies."
