"Secrets of Love"
“Here is the deepest secret nobody knows,
here is the root of the root, and the bud of the bud, and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide,
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart,
I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart”
Inspired by a verse of poetry by EE Cummings,
this was our second feature in You and Your Wedding Magazine.
Founder Susannah Parker chose Two Temple Place in London as the setting not only because it is only of her favourite venues
but because she believes it to be one of London’s best kept secrets,
an exclusive hidden gem in the heart of London which remains largely undiscovered by couples.
As Lord Astor’s former family home, the venue has a number of secrets of its own
such as secret doors hidden in wooden panels and even a secret Champagne cellar -
as such, she knew it would be the perfect backdrop in which to explore her very own Secrets of Love shoot ….
The 'secrets' revealed themselves in a number of ways
such as the hidden language of the flowers selected,
the wedding gown which revealed a daring open back,
the secret message so beautifully inscribed around the circumference of the wedding cake,
and further actual secrets to a happy marriage which were revealed on the back of the guests’ placement cards.
This editorial was not only featured across 5 pages of the magazine
but was also used on the front cover of their annual Venues Supplement.
