Natalie and Brian met through their mutual love of horses.  Brian was in the mounted police – he was the one to lead the Grand National horses out.  He now trains difficult horses.
Natalie has a horse called Leo she is very attached to – it was fantastic for her to have him there at Thornton Manor for some special pictures,
Huge thanks to Leo’s carers for bringing him along, it helped make Natalie’s day perfect.

Firstly bridal preparations at Natalie’s parental home with MUA Beverley Crawford in attendance, the girls all had a great time getting ready, all looking very on trend in their blue patterned dressing robes before getting onto their pastel coloured dresses. Gorgeous flowers arriving from Carol Anne’s florist, another highlight. We loved the little gift of words of wisdom from Natalie’s bridesmaid – each writing  a thoughtful tip for married life
A little delay with the cars for the groomsmen but in itself a blessing as the men then missed a bit of a shower before their shots – silver lining and and all that!

Next a ceremony at St Paul’s church in Hooton –  a stunning church designed in the style of Lombardy architecture, with its coloured layers …akin to a wedding cake!
The minister was so accommodating to everyone , even the photographers!..really hope to be back at this church!
Natalie won’t mind me saying this but her eyesight is problematic, she has and is undergoing surgery ..so it was very touching of Brian to say that he wouldn’t watch Natalie walk down the aisle but would wait til she was right alongside side him so she could see his reaction, this just about sums up the loving caring relationship of this couple, so tender and true.
Natalie’s mum had recently been very poorly so it was wonderful that she could be there for her daughter’s wedding – a huge blessing and relief for Natalie and Brain

Thornton Manor is always a grand special place for a wedding  – the beautiful cars from Malvern Wedding Cars graced the courtyard entrance and made for a special picture with the bridal party.
The room was dressed fantastically by Carol Anne also, the touches of flowers in the chairs were gorgeous. Wonderful food and also ice-cream made for an enjoyably memorable wedding breakfast.

The evening entertainment went down well with the band Mid Life Crisis who sang a fab personalised song for Natalie and Brian – went down a storm!
We wish them so much happiness and health for the future and hope you enjoy a few of the many images from their wedding day memories.
Images can be purchased from our on-line gallery – just ask!
