Today, I share with you the extended wedding highlights of Martine and Okiem who were married at Prestwold Hall Church back in May. Such a beautiful couple not only to work with but to know and those that do and are close friends will always love them for their warmth and generosity.
It was a fabulous wedding and a first for Midway Media working at the delightful Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire. The day couldn’t have been any more beautiful. A lovely wedding ceremony, jump over the broom as husband and wife, love, laughter, amazing speeches and to top it off, a day full of surprises for both the bride and groom! We had the delights of X-Factor star Jay James singing for the couple, as Jay is close friends with the groom. It didn’t stop there, Okiem arranged a huge surprise for his new wife by arranging for her favourite singer to come to Prestwold and sing. The surprise act was singer Leah McFall who first featured on the second series of The Voice. The final surprise for Martine was seeing Okiem perform with Leah on keyboard for the first song. Okiem himself is a talented musician who has toured the world with many artists including Tiny Temper to name but a few. The music used for these highlights has been written and recorded by Okiem. Martine herself competed for the 2014 Team GB European Finals and is currently the European Powerlifting Champion and runs a successful gym called ‘Be Fitter’ with her brother in Leicester. I have never spent so much time with two such talented individuals that are so friendly and down to earth. Great couple and a fantastic wedding which I was very pleased to be a part of.
