Today I am thrilled to share this elegant Wedding at Stoke Rochford Hall with a apple green and peach palette and a Benjamin Roberts Gown.
The Bride and Groom are Natalie and Keval and today I want to bring some beautiful memories of the day to Natalie whose mum sadly passed soon after her Big Day.
Images of the day were captured by Mark Pugh Photography.
Mark said of the day and the couple…
“When Natalie and Keval contacted us to ask if we would photograph their wedding at two of our favourite venues, St. Mary’s Bottesford and Stoke Rockford Hall, how could we possibly refuse?.”
“A little light drizzle didn’t stop anything on the morning of Natalie and Keval’s special day.”
“We met Natalie at her parent’s house and photographed the last hour or so of her bridal preparations, including Made Up, Make up and Beauty by Claire, flowers by Glen Esk Flowers, Rachel Simpson shoes, and the all-important Benjamin Roberts dress.”
“We always advise couples to try to relax and soak-up the atmosphere of their wedding, as the day goes so quickly; it’s our job to capture the little details that are often overlooked.”
“In keeping with the fact that wedding days seem to fly by, Stuart from Classic Car Hire arrived to take Natalie to St. Mary’s which was just around the corner. We’ve enjoyed Stuart’s company before at a wedding event in the Vale of Belvoir, and it was wonderful to finally work with him and experience his outstanding customer care.”
“As Natalie stepped into the church with her father, everyone was turned-around waiting to see her walk down the aisle. St. Mary’s is one of the most architecturally interesting churches in the United Kingdom, with its dramatic monuments, huge spire that dominates the skyline, and as the burial place of many of the Earls and Dukes of Rutland.”
“After a beautiful ceremony which involved a giant bar of Toblerone… don’t ask, the couple stepped outside to discover that the clouds had parted to reveal brilliant, beautiful August sunshine.”
“A short drive down the A1 took the couple to Stoke Rockford Hall, one of the most dramatic and grand country house hotels in the United Kingdom.
“With the weather perfect, it was only proper that drinks and canapés should be taken in the extensive grounds.”
“MP took the guests to the rear of the building for a short series of formal photographs.”
“With speeches, a beautiful meal and the cake-cut complete, all that remained was to dance the night away in the orangery courtesy of Vibetown, who were superb, and extremely professional.”
“It was a privilege to photograph such a beautiful wedding, and spend time in the company of Natalie, Keval, and their lovely friends and family. We wish them both all the love and happiness for the future.”
Thank you so much to Mark for sharing this exquisite and elegant Wedding day.
Moments are so precious and these images are memories of such a happy day.
Love the delicate palette and the stunning location, and the happiness that oozes form the images.
