Aleisha & Matt

There is something special about historic mansions – the stories and grandeur that lies beneath their walls make them a beautiful setting for an elegant wedding celebration. Aleisha and Matt chose historic Quat Quatta for their wedding. Marrying in the mansion’s green lined courtyard and celebrating in the grand ballroom. Aparat Photography was there to capture it all.

Aleisha remembers how they met. “We were set-up on a blind date and were inseparable from that moment on.”

Aleisha and Matt chose Quat Quatta for their wedding, explaining, “We had both the ceremony and reception at Quat Quatta. We were married in their garden and it was such a beautiful, sunny day. The garden is so gorgeous and was exactly what we wanted. We then moved inside for the reception which was set up beautifully. The size of the venue was perfect for the number of guests we had.”

Of their photographers, Aleisha notes, “Jakub and Zosia from Aparat Photography did an amazing job. We wanted very candid and raw photos – nothing too posey or over the top. They really met the brief and captured so many beautiful moments.”

Aleisha remarks, “We wanted our wedding to progress very naturally and to be an intimate affair, which I think shows through the photos. We didn’t want any part of our day to be over the top and again I think Jakub and Zosia captured this beautifully.”

Aleisha says their first dance was, “So fun! We had lessons for about 2 months and did a choreographed dance to “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen. We had perfected the dance but of course on the night we totally forgot our moves for about 30 seconds of the song! So we just made something up on the spot until we figured out how to get back on track.”
