Natasha and Ian chose the lovely Dunchurch Park Hotel in Rugby, Warwickshire as the place for their special wedding day. It was a dry day which is always a bonus in the early months of the year, just a little cold. We have been the wedding photographers at this hotel many a time and it is always a pleasure.
The day for me started at Klickers Hair Salon in Rugby where Natasha and her daughter Holly were having their hair done. The staff made me feel as welcome as the VIP ladies. We then made our way to the hotel where Natasha was to continue getting ready. It was a really calm morning too. Everything went to plan including Juliette Brides arriving to assist Natasha into her absolutely stunning gown from Sammie Lou Bridal Couture.
Ian had chosen Brownsover Hall Hotel for his final night as a single man 🙂 so Kev met him there for some preparation shots with his son. They looked very smart in their suits from Salters Menswear.
While the couple were getting ready Gem Celebrations and Blossoms and Blooms were working hard in the Great Hall to make it look beautiful for the ceremony. Following the formalities the guests were treated to drinks which they took out onto the steps for a group shot of everyone and once the family shots were taken we took the newly weds down to the lake. While we photographed the couple Tony from the hotel ensured the room was turned around for the wedding breakfast. There were fab hurricane lamps from Millhouse Events making a statement on every table. Natasha had sorted the wedding stationery herself along with help from Andy at The Printing Works. During the meal James Barlow kept the guests entertained with live singing and he also sang later including during the couple’s first dance.
We had a lovely sky in the early evening so we took Natasha and Ian back outside for a few more photos before they went back inside for the evening entertainment which commenced with the cutting of the cake from JJs. We had our Photo Booth to add a bit of fun too.
We had a great day and must thank Tony and the wonderful team at the hotel for looking after everyone. Enjoy a few of the photos from this lovely wedding.
