A couple of months ago, back in February, I was at the Hundred House Hotel at Norton in Shropshire for Lauren and David’s wedding. It was my first time at the 17th Century family run venue and it was a real pleasure to have visited for such a wonderful day full of love, fun and laughter.
On the morning of the wedding I met with Lauren and her bridesmaids at her parent’s house in Tipton for bridal prep. It was a lively morning with plenty of prosecco flowing! Hair was being done by Rory Mason from Ashley Gamble Hair and Beauty whilst makeup was in the very capable hands of top Birmingham MUA Katie Bird.
For the ceremony, which took place in the Tithe Barn adjoining The Hundred House Hotel, Lauren wore a stunning white A-line wedding dress which was from The Dressing Rooms at Halesowen, whilst David looked very dapper in his dark blue three piece suit which was from DJ Formal Wear Wedding Suit Hire. The barn looked amazing and had been brilliantly styled. Lauren runs her own design company (do check out Woody’s Design) so obviously had a very big hand in the look of the day. She designed all her own invites, stationary and the signage which was used to decorate the venue.
Once the legal formalities had been completed the guests then headed back into the main building for canapés whilst I whisked the happy couple away for some formal family photos and a few portraits. With the canapés munched and the drinks quaffed the guests then headed back into the Tithe Barn for a stunning three course wedding breakfast which was followed some very entertaining speeches.
For the evening reception the guests packed the dancefloor of the Tithe Barn until the small hours. Shapes were thrown, rug was cut and and there was some epic “dad dancing”. I shall never be able to listen to Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now in the same way again! Here’s a few photographs from Lauren and David’s epic day . . .
