So the vision and all the planning became reality..Louise wanted reportage, natural photography all day…my kind of Wedding Sooo much to write about, Ive been sooo excited to Blog this wedding! Here goes…ENJOY!
I arrived at Louise & Marks home in Sutton Coldfield, on the morning of the wedding to take pics of her and the girls all getting ready..Louise had her hair beautifully styled at home, by Celebrity Stylist Warren Holmes..he did a superb job!..Louises dress was incredible…Simple yet totally elegant and Grecian inspired…She wore gorgeous Black Jimmy Choos too and Mark bought her a Cartier Watch as a Wedding Day Present!( Well Jel lol)..
All of the girls looked Stunning..A new Black Bentley collected Lou and her dad, while the Brdiesmaids arrived in a Range Rover…They chose a Catholic Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic church in Sutton Coldfield..Louise carried a Stunning & seriously HUGE Fragrant Bridal Bouquet of White Hydrangeas & Peonies..Literally the biggest and most Beautiful Bouquet ive ever laid my eyes on..The Bridesmaids all dressed in a Vintage salmon colour crinkled chiffon short dresses..carrying a big bunch of Gyp each..The Lads all dressed in Smart white shirts and Black Dinner suits and Bow ties, with a Gyp sprig buttonhole.

As Louise arrived, every Usher escorted each Bridesmaid in turn, arm in arm down the aisle, which ive never seen before and thought was lovely idea..mark & Louise’s beautiful young daughter was escorted down with Louises mom , and Louises dad was then next to walk down the rose petal scattered aisle, with Louise to give her away.
A lovely & long ceremony with Mass, was conducted by Father Michael..a very lovely Vietnamese priest…Lovely hymns were sung with a singer present..Then Signing the register and a few photos at the altar.
The couple then left church as husband and wife and made their way to Alrewas Hayes, Nr Burton..A fantastic wedding venue..beautiful country house, acres of greenery around..stunning Vintage yet contemprary styling inside too and a permanently erected HUGE marquee.
The heavens decided to open as soon as they married..and i mean Terrential!…But when the rain showers stopped, it was lovely and warm and sunny and the sky was beautifully Blue.So we got some great photos.
After some family pics, we headed into marquee for their wedding breakfast,…Speeches were first..Very funny they were too!
Louises vision for their evening doo was this : A 2nd and equally as stunning wedding dress to change in to!…A Moroccan themed reception..With Belly Dancers!!…Cream laid carpet throughout the marquee..Moroccan vibrant colours, seating, leather pouffs, large Rugs, and huge cushions, Hookah pipes on the tables..Moroccan band..Trumpet player to play alongside the popular songs , A cocktail bar with amazingly talented flarers www.cocktailevents.co.uk Huge Urns on each table as centrepieces, with yet more Huge and beautiful floral displays..A basket of Dacing Choos’Very thoughful so the ladies could enjoy dancing in Flip Flops and rest their feet from their heels and a A HUGE Wedding cake forming the focal point of the Beautifully dressed marquee..with Ice Fountain Fireworks popping out the top..
The couple shared a first dance later on in the evening , followed by the Moroccan band playing some authentic music and then 2 amazing Belly Dancers put on a spectacular show for us…Everyone loved it!.
