JASEL & MARK | A BRILL WEDDING

24th July 2021 Jasel & Mark | A Brill wedding
Our wedding film love story
How did you guys meet?
We met through an online dating website called Zoosk (no-one’s ever heard of it!) and we had our first date in Oxford. Clearly, it went well!
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
Jasel works as a head and neck cancer dietitian at Guy’s hospital in London and Mark works as a timetabling manager at Queen Mary University in London. We spend a lot of our weekends seeing friends and family and doing up our new house! Mark also tries to play golf at any opportunity he gets!
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
Mark planned a trip to the Scottish Highlands back in June. He proposed at Talisker Bay beach on the Isle of Skye on a beautiful sunny afternoon, having initially planned to do it the day after, but Jasel insisted the weather was better for a walk on the beach that day…
We were collecting pebbles to take home and Mark explained how male penguins search pebble beaches high and low to find the shiniest pebble to present to the female penguin that they love. He then brought out the shiniest pebble he could find -a ring!
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
Jasel grew up in Brill, so we have both spent a lot of time there over the past 7 years; Mark has got to know a lot of people in the village. We had discussed before that it would be the perfect setting for our wedding with the beautiful countryside surroundings.
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
We love the idea of a festival/ village theme where it’s not too formal and it’s a big party for everyone. We want everyone to have a good time and have really enjoyed planning it, thinking of little details to make it personal and fun.
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
We chose burnt orange/ rust as the main colour in our colour scheme, this is mainly as it is a popular Asian colour which is a sort of tribute to Jasel’s heritage, being half Indian.
We really wanted to involve local suppliers and have been really fortunate to have Amber from Howe Farm on board, who is growing flowers in this colour for us, as well as Alan Horton, who will be making a variety of lanterns in different shapes and colours – both on tables and hung up in the Tipis. They are both so enthusiastic and talented in their creativity, so, we really feel so grateful that they can bring the village/festival theme to life!
(the dolphins that were displayed over Windmill St may even make an appearance!)
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
There have been many ups and downs with wedding planning over the last year with all the un-certainty and, sadly, some family and friends won’t be able to join us.
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
Create a spreadsheet early on with timelines for when things need to be actioned by. This really helps to ease any stress, and you can then focus on enjoying the process of putting the wedding together.
