Viv and Paul got married in June at the Holy Trinity Church, which is in the beautiful village of Coalbrookdale, situated in the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. The Ironbridge Gorge, famous for being the birthplace of industry, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and attracts tourists from all over the world.
The bridal preparation took place at the nearby Madeley Court Hotel, one of my favourite wedding venues in Telford.
Viv and Paul's wedding celebration was held at the amazing 'Enginuity', one of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums, which provides a spectacular backdrop for photos.
Viv: "We wanted a quirky venue that was far away from a run of the mill wedding reception. I was a huge Enid Blyton fan as a child, and one of my favourite books when I was little was The Faraway Tree. This tied in with the tree theme, and the table names were each named after one of the magical lands in the book."
I do love a VW van at a wedding, and this one had two! The reason Viv chose VWs, other than being vintage and different, was that her dad used to have one when she was a child, "and he loved it, so it was a bit of a surprise for him."
Details of the suppliers are as follows:
Dress was a Stella York Design from White Lace Bridal in Northampton. Shoes and suits from Peter Posh. Flowers from Shelly's Florists in Wellington, Telford. Day time caterers were Jenkinsons, from Stafford, and the evening food by Mukaase, from Wellington. The cake was designed and made by Paul Marsden at Sweet Success. The VWs were a collaboration between 'Wed in VW' and 'Perfect Day'.
It was an honour and absolute pleasure to be Viv and Paul's Enginuity Wedding Photographer. Their wedding was AWESOME!
I think every bride & groom should incorporate a bit of robotics into their first dance! ;)
