So, Laura and Mark picked a pretty special venue – The Heath House in Staffordshire is stunning, with its beautiful gothic features and lovely orangery and gardens, you can’t help but fall in love with it – I just wish we had all day there to photograph as there are so many little places we could use.
Laura got ready upstairs with her mum and all the girls – When I arrived, the Champagne was flowing, presents were being handed out and everyone was having a great time, while downstairs the guys were greeting guests and Mark had bought all his men a custom engraved wooden beer tankard and cigar – a great start to the day!
A lovely ceremony followed by a few group photos before we got cut short by an impromptu rain shower – It didn’t last long though and we were soon back outside basking in the sun and going for a wander around doing some lovely couple photos. It wasn’t long before we saw in the distance the red jacket of Toastmaster Wayne walking towards us which always means it’s time for dinner!
Laura and Mark are such a lovely couple and it’s obvious they’re great together.
A big thanks to David and Geoff who stepped in to assist me on the day while Hannah was unwell – Much appreciated guys!
Here are a few of our favourites…
