Sarah and Gareth ~ Modern Hollywood

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio


On Saturday 6th April 2013 Sarah Borland married Gareth Griffiths in a royal blue modern Hollywood theme wedding held at Miskin Manor in South Wales. Oh So Perfect were delighted to be involved in the overall design, planning, set up and on the day coordination of Sarah and Gareth’s big day…


Sarah and Gareth named all of their tables after modern Hollywood films relevant to their own ‘love story.’ These included ‘When Harry Met Sally,’ ’50 First Dates,’ ‘The Proposal,’ ‘The Holiday,’ ‘Bridesmaids,’ and ‘Father of the Bride,’ amongst many others!


Instead of traditional table name cards, we placed the poster of each film the table was named after in a mirrored frame flat on the table, with a description of the film, why it had been chosen, and a quote from the characters alongside it. 




The centrepieces were made up of martini glasses, popcorn boxes and gorgeous blue delphiniums and roses courtesy of the lovely ladies at The Flower Pot in Pontyclun.

The top table was lined up with all the films in mirrored photoframes to help reflect the colours and light around the room. We lined up popcorn boxes which were filled with the posies from the pew ends at the church. We also pinned patterned ribbon to the front of the table to look like discarded film reel. 


The guests were all given mini boxes of home-made popcorn to enjoy through the speeches.



We used a film projector to play a running loop of clips from all the films throughout the wedding breakfast. 



Blue uplighters added splashes of colour around the room and helped to tie in the royal blue colour scheme.


We set up a photo booth in the evening full of props for guests to play with. Guests were asked to take a photo with the polaroid camera and post it onto what was originally the table plan, so that Sarah and Gareth could take this home and frame it later.

Can you spot our wedding planner Samantha and her handy assistant Rhod Gilbert in amongst the props! 


In the evening, we opened the dance floor and unveiled large Hollywood props to add to the theme and create a fun, relaxed atmosphere.


Oh So Perfect would like to extend a huge thank you to all the suppliers who were involved in the coordination and delivery of such a fabulous day, and to Zipline Media and Rhod Gilbert for their involvement: We were so chuffed to see our couple grinning from ear to ear throughout the whole day! More importantly, we’d like to thank Mr and Mrs Griffiths – Sarah and Gareth – for being such a gorgeous couple to work with!
