Oh the style. Oh the glamour.
Let’s start with bride Natalie’s spectacular gown shall we? She looked beautiful in Daisy by Eliza Jane Howell teamed with Rachel Simpson shoes and classic veil. WOW.
Natalie and Alex were married on the 6th September 2014 at The Manor House Hotel in the Cotswolds. They envisioned a classic English country garden party and kept the styling simple yet pretty. With fresh white blooms, hessian, twine and log slices decorating their reception perfectly.
The maids wore gorgeous slate dresses while Alex looked dashing in a navy custom made suit. Sublime.
