We met Natalie and Andrew 2 years ago which was when they decided we were the photographers for them. At their pre-wedding shoot we hit it off and knew we were in for a good day. It was that for sure 🙂
I met up with Natalie at home where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids. Candice Fuller Make Up Artist was well on the way to having everyone made-up and looking even more gorgeous than they already were. I was loving the playlist that Nat had put together for the morning so we were all singing along to the music while we worked…perfect! It was lovely to work with Lucy of Bridal Hair Warwickshire again, she worked so hard to make sure all the girls’ hair was done in time for me to get photos. Annita from Annita’s Floral Design arrived with the most beautiful flowers. There was a lovely moment when Natalie was in her dress from Eternal Bride. We asked her Dad to come in to see her in the room where she had got ready and I think it is safe to say he was blown away. During the morning I was also joined by videographer Stuart Kettell who did an amazing job of capturing the day for the couple. They are delighted by the results too.
Kev met up with the boys and also had a great morning with lots of fun. The suits had been hired from Parkes in Leamington Spa.
The couple were marrying in Wolston. The Church is in such a beautiful setting so the approach of the car from A&M Chauffeurs made for even more photos! Once married there were lots of hugs and kisses outside followed by confetti at the Church gate and then champagne to accompany the newlyweds to Ashton Lodge County House where Carmen was ready and waiting for them. Our time with the guests taking their formal photos was full of even more fun. That word seems to be coming up quite a bit when we talk about this wedding 🙂 We then all made our way into the Pavilion for the guests to be seated for the wedding breakfast where Make My Day had the responsibility of making the room perfect for Natalie and Andrew. The Chopping Block were responsible for the lovely food.
The evening got underway with the cutting of the gorgeous cake from JJs and then dancing to Not Just a DJ who kept the floor full all night. One poignant moment was Natalie’s brother singing the first dance song after which we took them out for a few more photos using light painting and sparklers……more fun!
Huge thanks to Carmen and the team at Ashton Lodge for a perfect day. Enjoy a few of the photos from the day.
