Bank of England sports centre wedding – Jackie & Gareth’s fun casino wedding
Bank of England Sports Centre wedding – Jackie and Gareth’s super fun casino themed south London wedding.
When I first met Jackie and Gareth ahead of their wedding, I was drawn to their happy and fun loving nature. They told me they wanted to make sure their guests had fun and were thoroughly entertained at their wedding, and they didn’t disappoint! Their casino theme ran all the way through the day, from their surprise double sided wedding cake through to the table names and pop up evening casino, and they also added in nods to their shared Ghanian and Yorkshire heritages.
I met Jackie in the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids – all laughing together but with some very serious business to be had with the wearing of gloves to handle her delicate dress. Gareth spent time ahead of the ceremony writing his speech in a pub (yes, really!) before pinning on buttonholes with his family and heading over to the church. They had a lovely ceremony at St Boniface Catholic church in Tooting before going over to Roehampton for their Bank of England Sports Centre wedding reception. It’s a great place for a wedding with it’s extensive sports grounds, I went on a wander with Jackie and Gareth round the pitches for some photos whilst their guests were being entertained by a magician. He continued to entertain at dinner, and I witnessed him several times making a bottle of wine disappear through a table – even when I look back at the pictures in succession, I can’t work out how he did it. Bloody amazing!
Jackie and Gareth kicked off their evening with their first dance and revealing the pop up casino as a surprise for guests – which went down VERY well – winning and losing faces all round! I love just how much thought Jackie and Gareth put into their wedding entertainment. The very first time I have seen a casino at a wedding, and it was a great success. If you’re looking for alternative guest entertainment, I highly recommend it! I had great fun at Jackie and Gareth’s Bank of England Sports Centre wedding, thank you for having me guys!
