Fantastic to be back at Blackwell Grange near Shipston on Stour in Warwickshire. It is on the outer edges of the Cotswolds and is a beautiful wedding venue with lots of photo opportunities throughout. Nikola had been following our work for a while so when Mark proposed and they began wedding planning they got in touch and booked us.
Nikola chose to use the Potting Shed which has been made into a Bridal Changing Room to get ready with her bridesmaids and Mum. Hair was being done by Mode Weddings and Amie Rose from Mode was doing the make up. Lots of fun during the morning with the girls.
Mark was another hotel nearby getting ready. He had chosen suits from Slaters in Birmingham for the men of the wedding party. They then made their way to the venue to greet guests.
It was time for Nikola to get into her Sophia Tolli dress from Lily Rose Bridal and then armed with her beautiful flowers from Passion for Flowers who had done all the floral arrangements too, it was off for the short walk to the Thatched Barn to meet Mark.
We had a lovely surprise when we saw the registrar as she was the same person who married me and Kev! Something now that we have in common with Nikola and Mark.
After the wedding the team from Galloping Gourmet were on hand to ensure everyone had drinks and we were then able to capture some family photos before taking the newly weds off for some couple portraits around the venue. Check out the decorated bike that was a feature throughout the wedding too. Lots of nods to cycling throughout the wedding.
During the drinks Ben Drummond entertained the guests before everyone was welcomed into the barn for the wedding breakfast. Lots of comments were made to the couple afterwards about how wonderful the food was.
We had a little time before the evening got underway to have some fun with the bridal party. After the cutting of a lovely cake from the Cakery in Leamington Spa it was time for the first dance and the party started. We had our Luxury Vintage Photo Booth in place for the evening too and it went down a storm with everyone.
Such a great day. Thanks for choosing us to capture your memories for you Nikola and Mark and we look forward to working on your heirloom album and wall art over the coming months.
