Vicki & Tom's maritime wedding at St Peters, Kinver and Blakelands Country House, Bobbington

June 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Vicki's day started at Top Kutz in Kinver where the whole salon had been reserved for her bridal party to enjoy an undisturbed morning of hair and make-up preparation (and, of course, fizz) before moving onto her parent's house and I had the pleasure of spending the morning with a group of lovely people.  With the bridesmaids ready, it was time for Vicki to slip into her gown and she wowed everyone by her choice - it was absolutely made for her and she looked stunning!  With the gorgeous flower bouquets and button holes created by the very talented Jo from Floral Secrets, everyone was ready to go.

Just up the road, Phil was photographing Tom and the lads who had popped into The Cross in Kinver for a swift pint (or two) before making the short walking up to the church to greet guests.

Little did guests suspect that they would be in for an absolute treat with Revd. Karen taking the service - her perfect timing/delivery and impish sense of humour never fails to make a memorable wedding ceremony - and once they had done deed this very dashing couple were welcomed out of the church with a sword arch created by Tom's submariner buddies.

A short journey later and we were at The Blakelands Country House in Bobbington, the perfect backdrop for their military wedding where everyone kicked back and enjoyed the gardens in the beautiful weather we were blessed with.  They kept a local theme and even enjoyed the vintage fizz from Halfpenny Green Wine Estate for their toast.

Vicki & Tom were superstars and were a pleasure to photograph by made the most of the venue grounds throughout the day and evening which allowed us to get some simply stunning shots (including Paul slightly delaying evening proceedings so that we could get the amazing evening light that had been teasing us behind clouds until just before the sun actually set - thanks Paul, it was worth it!).

With the evening guests having arriving it was then up to James and the band (aka Spectrum) to make sure the dance floor was packed all evening and in their typical style and being able to read a dance floor they did not fail to deliver!

Mr & Mrs Wilson - it was an absolute pleasure!

If you want to see some of their amazing day, they have kindly let me share their slideshow - enjoy.
