Today we have the lovely Tom and JoJo’s wedding video from their day in Surrey. Tom & JoJo had to be one of my favourite couples of all time. They were just such nice and fun to work with. The day started with filming JoJo and the girls as they got ready. Then it was off to the Church of St Nicolas Taplow in Buckinghamshire. It was wet and cold as everyone made their way into the church, JoJo looked stunning when she arrived with her dad who looked so proud as they walked down the aisle together. The service was awesome and the Gospel choir were outstanding. After church we set off to the Ham Polo Club in Richmond, Surrey. Everyone danced the night away with guitars, trumpets and some awesome DJ’s. So here’s Tom and JoJo’s wedding film.
A few thoughts from Tom & JoJo
1) Tell us about your wedding day?
Magical! We had a year to plan and like most people did everything from start to finish by ourselves, which was not only a great test for us as a couple (so early on!) but also incredibly rewarding. We were setting up the venue the day before the wedding which seems bonkers now, but there was such excitement in the air! You could feed off the adrenaline for weeks! Our reception was held at the Ham Polo Club in Richmond. We cannot thank Emma, Andrew and the staff enough for their hard work. The food was gorgeous and as always, the evening ran incredibly smoothly with an undercurrent of fun factor! One of our favourite staff members (naming no names) Anton, got up and danced on the bar with us just after midnight…with heels on…yep you heard that right!! Ultimately we had fantastic friends and family there, a great atmosphere (New Year’s Eve helped!). The day had a very romantic feel early on as the Church had Christmas decorations and a gorgeous tree, and we walked down the aisle to gospel singers…totally outrageous. The ceremony was at St Nicolas’ Church in Taplow at 1:30pm, followed by the reception at 5pm where we saw in the New Year and partied with everyone until 2am.
2) What were your most memorable moments?
Brides Answer: So many of them! The first was a surprise video from Tom, delivered to me via our photographer on the morning of our wedding. Tom had filmed a music video with his friends on his stag do to the song ‘I think I wanna marry you’. They all dressed up, danced around, climbed up street lamps, got into skips…a-mazing. A real tear jerker and thank goodness my make-up hadn’t been done! Another fond memory is when our eyes met for the first time when I saw Tom standing at the altar…so special. I mean when our eyes met each other’s, not that we’d both gone cross-eyed. Also all of our guests doing the conga to their seats for dinner, our MC dressing up throughout the night as our favourite comedy characters, the speeches which were all amazing, my father’s surprise song he’d composed, and lastly, at the stroke of midnight dancing to strobe lighting in the haze on a pumping dance floor. We were and are, incredibly lucky.
Grooms Answer: Seeing JoJo walk down the aisle looking so beautiful. Hearing Mark’s speech. Nailing our first dance and UV gloves at midnight!
3) What do you love about being married?
Brides Answer: The contentment that I feel, perhaps a girlie trait! Knowing that we are a family and still getting pleasure from calling myself a ‘Baker’ even 6 months in. Not actually baking, no I can’t do that, just the name. I now get to share my life with the coolest guy in the world, Tom Baker!!!!! He’s also my best friend – it doesn’t get better than that.
Grooms Answer: A more relaxed JoJo! Every day is an adventure and I love making JoJo happy. I was happy before, but now even happier.
