Wedding Photography at Great Barn // Simon and Ingrid

On the 14th July 2017 Simon and Ingrid held their marriage ceremony at The Great Barn in Banbury.  Ingrid got ready at the barn, supported by her mother and best friend, with the talented Lucy Beesley MUA. In her beautiful wedding gown from Love Bridal, holding her trailing bouquet of white flowers, by Hibiscus Floral Design, Ingrid stood before us as a gorgeous, glowing bride.

Played in by her Step-Dad’s guitar trio The McAlleys, Ingrid gracefully walked  with a beaming smile to meet Simon at the end of the aisle.

After vows were shared and tears were shed, the newly wed couple were whisked away on the ground’s buggy for their photoshoot. Our photographer captured some beautiful shots through the lush greenery and over the lilly-pad carpeted lake.

Simon and Ingrid then returned to mingle with friends and family, enjoying the delicious canopies the barn had to offer. Once the ceremony room had been transformed into beautifully decorated dining quarters, thanks to Yellow Star Designs, guests were invited to their seats for the couple’s grand entrance as husband and wife.

Like a theatre encall, the most enthusiastic round of applause that the Finishing Touch team have ever heard accompanied Simon and Ingrid into the wedding breakfast.

Heartfelt and hilarious speeches then followed, leaving the guests in tears and stitches. Provided by Kearney’s Catering, a grand three course meal was presented and guests awed over the lovely wedding cake from Marks & Spencers.

Before the sun set, the team brought the happy couple out into the corn fields for an atmospheric photo shoot, capturing the golden sun amidst the golden grains.

With a live band Blue Juice Simon and Ingrid had their first dance and were quickly joined by friends and family who certainly knew how to bogey.

Everything came into place perfectly for this wedding celebration and we are so grateful to have captured such a wonderful day.

Wedding Photography at Mythe Barns // Natasha & Gavin

Set at the stunning Mythe Barns, Natasha and Gavin held their wonderful wedding ceremony. Made up with white and ivory roses, the bouquets created by Fairleys complimented the bridesmaids’ aquamarine, floaty dresses. The Bridal party looked elegant as ever and Natasha’s bridal gown from The Dressing Rooms made her look no less than a princess.

Gavin and his best men rocked up to the venue in their shiny sports cars to then await his beautiful bride’s entrance. Linked arms with her proud father, Natasha floated down the aisle which was adorned with gypsophila.

Accompanied by big smiles and laughter, the couple exchanged vows and sealed the deal with a warm embrace in front of their friends and family.

The newly wed couple were then greeted with cheeky cocktails and cheering guests. Entertained by the talented magician Christian Fletcher, Natasha and Gavin’s guests mingled and enjoyed the tasty treats Myth Barns had to offer.

We had a lot of fun capturing the couple’s first photographs as husband and wife, paying particular attention to Gavin’s impressive collection of sports cars. The bridal party were by no means afraid of getting their heals dirty and showed off their jumping poses as well.

After returning to the reception party, Natasha & Gavin cut into their tier of cupcakes, kindly created by a family friend. As soon as the Midlands Pro DJ started the tunes, the couple performed their well-rehearsed first dance. It no time at all, the rest of the wedding party joined them on the dance floor as well as their beautiful daughter.

Sikh Wedding Photography and Video at Park Hall, Woverhampton // Pav & Dilraj

Dilraj and Pav had a beautiful Sikh wedding ceremony at Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Willenhall. Pav got ready at her family home in Wolverhampton and was surrounded by her loved ones from near and far. She wore beautiful detailed Indian bridal outfit with a bright orange dupatta to add a bit of summery contrast. Once Pav was ready, we took formal photographs with her main family in front of her lovely home, before she set off on her way to the Gurdwara.  Dilraj also got ready at his family home in Telford with his nearest and dearest. He wore a traditional Indian Groom’s outfit, a champagne gold sherwani. 

The couple met in the darbar sahib to officially become husband and wife. Once their Sikh wedding ceremony had finished, we took the couple outside of the Gurdwara to capture some couples photos before they headed off to get changed. The couple chose the beautiful Ramada Park Hall Hotel to hold their reception party in. We had some of our team head to the venue to capture details of the decor and grounds before the guests started to arrive. Pav changed into a beautiful golden Indian gown for the reception while Dilraj put on a 3 piece suit. While guests mingled and waited for the couple, the renowned Gabhru Punjab De bhangra dancers. The couple had a quick photoshoot in they new outfits before they entered to cut their cake.

Pav’s sisters made an emotional yet funny speech along with Dilraj’s best friends and Dilraj himself. This lead onto their first dance, which we LOVED as it was choreographed and made for a beautiful capture. The dance floor opened and the celebrations began. These guys know how to party! After a long evening of celebrations, Dilraj surprised Pav with a vintage car for them both to leave in. Pav and Dilraj continued with the traditional Doli and Paniwaarna ceremonies before the night ended. 

Pav and Dilraj, you make a lovely couple and we are so thankful you chose The Finishing Touch team to capture your special moments.
