What a couple! What a wedding!
We are so lucky at NKP to get to work on some fabulous weddings and this one was no exception. We were introduced to Natalie and Ranald by Clare of Lilyfee Floral Designs who we love working with and goodness wasn’t it a superb wedding!
We had a team of three out for this wedding and started the day with Nikki at bride Natalie’s childhood home whilst Charlotte was at The Bell at Tanworth in Arden with the boys. This local wedding meant that everything was in walking distance. When she was ready, Natalie walked on the arm of her Father through the pretty streets of Tanworth in Arden to the Church where Ranald and their guests were waiting for her arrival. The Church of St Mary Magdalene is beautiful; for a small village the church is almost abbey like in its size and splendour and of course it was richly decorated in fabulous floral style by the Lilyfee team.
Following their wedding ceremony guests were treated to champagne and canapes on the village green before making the short walk to the Umberslade Estate where tipis had been erected in the field to house the wedding reception, bar and dance floor. Sami Tipi Weddings, Tickety Boo Events, and Lilyfee Floral Designs had worked together to create a beautiful and welcoming interior for Natalie, Ranald, and their guests to enjoy. As the sun set over the tipis, guests were called to dinner and our happy couple piped in by their very own piper!
The speeches that followed were heartfelt, emotional, and with a lot of seriously side splitting funny bits that even had us photographers shaking with laughter (thank goodness for tripods!).
We had such a lovely day; we worked hard and we thoroughly enjoyed playing a small part in this fabulous day. Thank you to Natalie and Ranald for their great sense of fun and for indulging us in our photography, and to the ushers who held all of the cars back on the long stretch of driveway to the Umberslade Estate!
Here is their wedding story… Enjoy!
