Today I am thrilled to share a gorgeous West Midlands Country House Wedding with a Mori Lee Dress and peach details.
Images were captured by Two – D Photography.
Two – D Photography is Dan and Sarah and as a husband and wife team, they offer a different approach.
Your wedding is a celebration first and foremost, and they like to treat it as such, with two different perspectives on the day.
Creativity is what they live for, and they love what we do; and when you love something or someone, you give it your all.
So every wedding they shoot gets their heart and soul poured into it.
They say of the couple and their day…
We met Pete and Vicky through friends and previous clients.
We had shot one of her bridesmaids weddings prior, and had met them at a couple of weddings previously – so they had seen how we work beforehand and knew our style was laid back, fun, and clearly a suit for them!
There are several things from their day that I’ll never forget!
1. The venue. Moxhull Hall is stunning, and it was a beautiful ceremony outside under the clear blue sky.
2. The bride and groom arriving on a Harley. So bad ass!
We knew from the off that this wedding was going to be ‘rockin.’
We knew that Pete was in an amazing band called Apollo Soul, as we’d seen them play at previous weddings. When I went to see the boys in the morning, Pete’s dad turned up on a Harley Davidson, and announced that he’d be dropping the bride off later, on the back of it.
3. The dog being present throughout the ceremony and hanging around for pictures – and being an absolute legend!
4. The Style…
We absolutely adored Vicky’s Mori Lee dress and her hair and make up was amongst the best we’d seen (turns out bridesmaid Gaby is an amazing hairdresser too), although everyone looked pretty as can be.
The bridesmaids outfits were made up of New Look crop tops and handmade Tutu’s, and are proof that bridesmaids outfits don’t have to cost top notch to look incredible!
5. THAT veil shot by the fountain.
6. The beautiful walkway into the gardens.
7. How the gardens had been created for beautiful photography, with stunning textures, archtitectures and mini buildings.

How did you meet?
We met in the final year of our degrees at Coventry University, Vicky Studied dance and I studied Music.
I joined the music course in the third year and sat behind Vicky and her friends in my first lecture.
I taken quite a fancy too her, and she knew it!
It wasn’t until a year later when we started working together at the same college that we finally started to date.
Tell us about the Proposal…
I took Vicky for a weekend away in Dublin to see Cirque du Soleil for her birthday and our 5 year anniversary.
Little did she know that I had planned to propose on the first night in a stunning restaurant called Pearl Brasserie.
I had booked a private vaulted booth just in case she turned me down
Tell us about your wedding planning journey …
We initially wanted a tipi wedding but decided to change our minds because of the difficulty finding the right venue to host it.
After deciding to visit a few venues, we fell in love with Moxhull Hall who offer an exclusive package and host the ceremony too.
Live music was a must as music and the arts are a very important part of our lives.
We are so lucky that my groomsmen are musicians so played the first dance, which lead smoothly into the evening entertainment by the amazing Apollo Soul.
Any special touches/DIY?
Yes, we got busy. We made the favours together, which were hand printed vinyl CDs featuring a mix-tape of our favourite songs.
We also made the table place names – caller lilies made from old sheet music. Save the date cards and Invites were made using thin wooden tablets and laser printed by designer and friend Liam Allen.
On the evening groomsman Ed and I performed ‘Daughters’ by John Mayer for Vicky and her father.
Following the ceremony we assembled the guests ready for Vicky to make a grand entrance on the back of my Fathers Harley Davidson followed by me and the dog Oscar.
We also had our dog at the ceremony, sat next to me waiting for Vicky; it was so lovely to have him at my side. Oscar was so pleased to see his mummy.
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
The Groom party wore dark navy suits with white dogtooth waistcoat, and the main colour for Bridesmaids was peach and gold. Flowers were white calla lilies.
What was the best bit of your day?
For me it was finally meeting Vicky at the aisle – looking absolutely stunning and for Vicki it was having the groomsmen play the first dance for us which was just magical.
Is there anything you would do differently?
Try and spend more time with some of our guests.
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Find some time during the day to escape together and take it all in.Time literally flies by.
