Steve and Natasha booked their 4th of July wedding an age ago, I think around 18 month – 2 years but when they told me then they loved America and would like a 4th July American theme I was super excited!
They had their engagement shoot a few weeks ago and it was such good fun, oodles of laughter and smiles so I couldn’t wait for the wedding. The day at last arrived and it was HOT, sweltering in fact and on arriving at the brides mums home in the morning the fans were going crazy! The girls were having a wonderful time sipping drinks, eating cupcakes and getting excited about the day.
Natasha has opted for a glam black tie theme and so her girls were in gorgeous black dresses with bright red lips and red rose bouquets, they looked a million dollars! Natasha had planned on a pink lip for her by the fab Emily from Love Moi Makeup but we all agreed that red looked perfect for her American movie theme. After she got in to her amazing Ian Stuart gown with her big curls by Tracy Ward Hair and her red lips she looked like a movie star!
They had the most beautiful emotional ceremony in the local church. Natasha has been brought up by her mum and stepdad Bob but her lovely Dad Kos who lives in California surprised her with a trip to the UK to attend the wedding! This was such a special moment for Tasha and I have included 2 shots below that I felt really showed the love and emotion from these men. When she got to the church door with her stepdad as she adjusted her veil he shed a few tears and this seems like the most beautiful poignant B&W shot below. At the end of the aisle Bob handed her to her dad Kos who walked her the rest of the way up the aisle and handed her to Steve. I adored the shot below of them arriving at the top, Natasha touched Steve’s face and her dad looking on proudly, an amazing moment.
Back at Hunters Hall they had some time to mingle with guests before we headed off for some couple shots in a near by corn field. After a great meal and some wonderfully funny and emotional speeches we nipped out for 10 mins of the amazing golden hour light before the party really began with the amazing Acafellas! They had a great dance floor and then to finish the night we pinched their LOVE letters and took them outside for a few shots as the sun was setting.
As always it was a hard choice so many happy moments but here are a few of my favourites below… starting with the last shot of the night!
Huge thanks to Heather for assisting and Steve and Natasha for our yummy afternoon tea!
