Natalia & Luke
Second time at Coombe Lodge in three days and one of the high lights for me today was the face of the bride all over the groom’s boxers…perfect gift!
Up in the bridal suite Natalia was busy getting ready with her bridesmaids, Mum and Mum In Law, and although Natalia was a little nervous her excitement shone through. A quick dash down the corridor where we found Luke and his groomsmen and just in time to see Luke open his presents from his future wife, the said boxers, after shave and a Boss watch…she’s a keeper! Back with the girls and it was time for the big reveal to Natalia’s younger brother, Ollie, who had the privilege of giving his sister away…a very proud moment for Mum. Natalia looked a million dollars in her stunning dress and all ready to get married. As the weather wasn’t looking great, todays ceremony took place inside, and when Luke saw Natalia for the first time his emotions took over him and the tears flowed, and so did the best mans! Special guests today were Natalia’s Spanish Grandparents and Dad who had flown over especially for the occasion, and although their english was limited their smiles said it all. Ceremony over and the couple went straight outside to be greeted by a shower of olive leaves…another lovely touch. After a drink on the lawns it was time for a walk around the grounds for the couple’s photos. Back inside we found Grant Maidment the magician, wowing the guest with his mind blowing tricks! Todays reception room looked absolutely incredible with such gorgeous flowers, and hanging paper lanterns in purples, pinks and cerise so eye catching. Our day was coming to and end and after some really heartfelt speeches we took the couple back outside to catch the late sunshine and the sunset.
One last special moment for me..as I was walking with Natalia, she said “I don’t want today to end I love Luke so much”…enough said.
Thank you both for asking us to share your very special day.
