Wethele Manor Outdoor Wedding: Natalie and Mike

We are so appreciative of how well our couples look after us! Natalie and Mike were no exception to this - we felt so blessed to be sat at a table looking at homemade jam favours with our names on! Thank you so much. Natalie and Mike had their ceremony at the gorgeous Wethele Manor. Being just down the road from us, I've always wanted to shoot there and it definitely lived up to my expectations! 

We started off the day at Natalie's parents' house, whilst Steve caught up with the boys at the venue. 










Natalie's bridesmaids arrived and got ready to go!






Meanwhile, Steve was capturing the excitement before the ceremony!







I adore shooting outdoor weddings! There's something so special about an abundance of natural light. 

I just love how Natalie and Mike are looking at each other!




In Warwickshire, you're not allowed to take many photographs during a civil ceremony, but still enough to catch the emotion of the occasion!











I had no idea what would happen next and it was SO much fun. Despite the potential hazard, no one got hurt by the bombardment of paper aeroplanes as they walked back down the aisle. Definitely one of my favourite moments of the wedding season! Especially as Mike is a pilot - I love how they incorporated flight into their day.







So much fun! After a few drinks and a chance to see their guests, we spent some time in the grounds taking some portraits of the two of them. We always think this is a great idea, not only to get some beautiful photographs but as a chance to take some time out and soak it all in!











Natalie had been so creative with the marquee decor - it was hard to stop photographing all the details!














During the meal, I couldn't resist taking a few more pictures around the grounds at Wethele.







I love photographing the speeches, so many smiles!





Shortly after there was dancing - the perfect end to such a beautiful day. We were definitely sad to leave this one!



Natalie and Mike, thank you so much for having us! We really had a ball!

Much love, Rach x

  5. Amazing pictures and very beautifully captured I must say. This is called a perfect wedding. I have always dreamed off to get married in the same style. Everything is just perfect from dinning to decoration. I really like that perfect wedding ring with shiny diamond. Bride and bridegroom, both are looking perfect with each other.
