Wedding Photography at Grand Station Wolverhampton // Leanne & Kwok

Kwok and Leanne married at Grand Station Banqueting Suite in Wolverhampton. Leanne got ready at home and Kwok headed to the venue to finish off his last preparations, where two of our team were waiting to capture Kwok and his family arriving. 
 
The couple had a civil ceremony followed by a hindu ceremony within Grand Central. For the civil ceremony, Leanne wore a lovely 2 piece outfit. The top was a silver and blush sequin blouse with a blush pink skirt to compliment the blush and white flowers and the bridesmaids’ pink blush dresses. Ravita Pannu created the 2 very different, beautiful makeup and hair looks. 
 
After the civil ceremony the couple had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, where Kwok’s family give the couple gifts and share herbal tea. Once the couple were officially married, they had a few family photographs outside the venue and a break where a small breakfast was served. This allowed Kwok and Leanne some time to get changed for the traditional Hindu wedding. 
 
For the Hindu wedding, Leanne wore a stunning traditional indian wedding lengha, which was mainly red but full of vibrant blues and oranges. Kwok wore a traditional indian wedding sherwani in blues, yellows and gold detailing. Once the wedding finished, the couple and their guests head back to the foyer area where there was a drinks reception, canapés and a little Photo Booth set up. We had the opportunity to float around and capture guests mingling as well as take some shots of the decor and details within the reception hall.
 
The couple made their entrance straight to the cake table, where they had photographs with friends and family feeding them cake. Starters came out, which lead to the could sitting down for speeches. Both Kwok and his best man gave heartfelt and funny speeches. After speeches the couple stepped onto the dance floor to take their first dance as husband and wife. They danced to Coldplay’s Magic and the dance floor soon opened for ally he guests to join them. 
 
Thank you for having us be part of your day Kwok and Leanne. We wish you a wonderful married life.

Wedding Photography and Video at Stables Lodge // Fleur & Martin

Martin and Fleur tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at St Wystan’s Church in Repton, Derbyshire.  Fleur’s Mother owns the beautiful Stables Lodge set in a scenic countryside, where Fleur got ready in the morning with her adorable children. Her 4 year old daughter Freya was her Bridesmaid and her little boy Henry, who was 21 months old was the Pageboy. They looked incredibly cute in their little Bridesmaid and Pageboy outfits!

After their beautiful wedding ceremony the couple headed back to Stables Lodge for their reception, which was set up in a marquee on the grounds.  A Harpist entertained guests as they mingled and congratulated the newlyweds. Once the guests were seated, a Toastmaster announced the speeches, which were given by Fleur’s Brother, Oliver Martin’s Bestman, and Martin himself. Oh boy, were the speeches emotional. Tissues at the ready for team Finishing Touch!

Meals were presented after the speeches and once the guests had completed their meals, we took Fleur and Martin out to neighbouring fields for their couples photoshoot. We really liked the golden light during the evening and were surrounded by beautiful cornfields, which made for some beautiful couple’s portraits. Fleur and Martin were a dream to capture and the setting for the shoot was incredibly dreamy too!

After their photoshoot as a newly married couple, the couple went back into the marquee for their cake cutting and first dance. We were greeted by a huge “LOVE” sign, which created a beautiful light and background from the couple’s first dance. The dance floor officially opened and the party started to celebrate the marriage of Martin and Fleur.

We adored this beautiful wedding day and cannot thank Martin and Fleur enough for having us be part of their special day.

Wedding Photography and Video at Coombe Abbey // Richard & Cheryl

Coombe Abbey in Coventry has become a second home to the Finishing Touch team. We were back there in July for the wedding of Richard and Cheryl. The couple both got ready in their rooms at the historical country hotel with the talented, awarded winning makeup artist Chloe McCall getting our Bride red carpet ready. The girls wore pretty mint green gowns and Cheryl wore a beautiful fitted and detailed white wedding dress, with a long cathedral veil. Richard made his way into their wedding ceremony room, the Cloisters, while Cheryl had her final photos with her Bridesmaids and father, who gave her away. The room was filled with fresh mint green decor and candles placed on the main table and down the aisle to create a romantic atmosphere.

 

Once the couple had said their vows and officially became Husband and Wife, we took them for their group formal photographs. Thankfully the weather stayed dry, so we were able to take  the couple around the stunning grounds of Coombe Abbey for a quick photoshoot.

Guests entered the marquee, where the wedding breakfast and reception was held. Speeches began and one of the best men surprised the guests with an acoustic song. After the speeches, while guests mingled and got ready for the reception party, we took Richard and Cheryl out around the grounds again for another Bride and Groom photo session. We are so pleased with the footage and photographs, you two were great in front of our lenses!

Once the evening guests had arrived, the couple went back into the marquee to cut their wedding cake before stepping onto the dance floor for their first dance as Husband and Wife. They had The Live Lounge wedding band sing their first dance song. We love live music on a wedding day! This lead to the dance floor opening where guests joined the couple to get the party started.

The Finishing Touch team had a great time capturing your wedding day. Thank you for choosing us to be part of your special day!

Wedding Photography and Video at The Belfry Hotel // Pheobe & Sanj

Sanj and Phoebe were married in a lovely civil ceremony at The Belfry Hotel & Golf Resort in Sutton Coldfield. Phoebe got ready at The Belfry assisted by her very proud Mum and bridesmaids. She wore a stunning white dress, beautifully embellished from the waist up, both front and back, while her bridesmaids wore vibrant coral dresses. Phoebe personalised her Miss KG wedding shoes from Kurt Geiger with blue diamanté  “I Do” stickers on the soles! 

Once the couple shared their vows and said their “I Do’s” they headed to the grounds for a short photo session with family and friends, giving their guests a chance to congratulate the newly married couple on tying the knot. Once inside their reception hall guests were seated for the wedding breakfast and speeches. After speeches, we took Sanj and Phoebe around the grounds of The Belfry for their “Bride & Groom” photoshoot. The Belfry has a world famous golf course, a beautiful lake and attractive bridge that was the perfect setting for their photoshoot. Their transport was a golf buggy which made for some rather fun photo’s as can be seen below!

Once the couple returned to the venue they cut their lovely gold and white wedding cake before heading onto the dance floor for their first dance as Mr and Mrs. The music was provided by Perfect Soundz DJ’s. Sanj and Phoebe slipped away during their evening party to change into their traditional Asian party outfits. Sanj wore a lovely white sherwani with magenta piping to match Phoebe’s stunning magenta Indian Lengha, embellished with lots of sparkly diamanté. Just beautiful!! We snuck the couple away again for a quick  photoshoot in their new traditional outfits before they headed back onto the dance floor for their lively party!

We had such a great time at Sanj and Phoebe’s wedding at one of our favourite venues!! It was full of fun, laughter and love and we can’t thank the lovely newlyweds enough for choosing us to be part of their big day!

Wedding Photography at Park Hall Ramada // Michelle and Gopi

wedding-photography-park-hall-wolverhampton

Gopi and Michelle got married in a lovely civil ceremony at Ramada Parkhall Hotel followed by their reception at the same venue. While Gopi got ready at home surrounded by his loved ones, Michelle got ready in the bridal suite of the venue with her nearest and dearest. Michelle wore a lovely lacey white wedding dress while her bridesmaids wore long blush pink dresses. 

While Michelle got ready, each of the bridesmaids received gifts and they returned the surprise by presenting Michelle with a little booklet of memories. The girls had all known each other from their days at school and were very close friends so this gift was both personal and meaningful to Michelle. How sweet! 

Michelle made her grand entrance with her father into the Orangery of Ramada Park Hall and the wedding ceremony began. The couple shared their vows and officially became husband and wife. After the ceremony, all guests went out into the grounds of the venue for canapés and champagne. The venue has a lovely grand sweeping staircase where we grouped the guests for a big group portrait and confetti shot before taking photographs of smaller groups with the couple. 

Gopi and Michelle had planned an outfit change so we managed to get some photographs of the couple before they headed up to their room to get changed. Once they got changed, they headed back downstairs to make their 2nd grand entrance of the day. Once Michelle and Gopi entered the Ballroom they cut their fabulous colourful cake designed to look like beautiful indian style cushions and then took to the dance floor for their first dance. The dance floor opened and our Newlyweds had their nearest and dearest join them on the dance floor to celebrate their beautiful day. 

It was such a pleasure capturing your special moments, thank you for choosing us to be part of your big day.
