♡♡♡ 1st June 2019 ♡♡♡

We have absolutely had a blast working with our London-based couple, Ness & Rich. From our very first FaceTime chat we could just tell they were our kind of folk, super cool, with an incredible sense of style (obviously, they picked the most epic ‘togs!)

We met in person for their Love Shoot at Birmingham’s bold and distinctive Custard Factory and, whilst we chatted over a coffee about their wedding day, it was like catching up with a couple of old friends. Ness & Rich had some awesome ideas for their photography - they asked us if we would mind including some props such as smoke bombs and sparklers….urm, hell yeah!

Already well on their way to achieving their Gold Star client badge, this pair then hit us with even more awesomeness with their breathtakingly beautiful venue. Although living amongst the bright lights and big city of London, family ties meant Ness and Rich decided to marry at Garthmyl Hall, an exquisite exclusive use venue on the border of Shropshire and Wales.

The Hall and grounds are incredible, with stunning walled gardens where Ness and Rich had their outdoor ceremony. The staff at the venue were tip-top and went over and above to help keep the day flowing, going into overdrive when Rich’s Mum was unfortunately rushed into hospital the night before the wedding.

It was touch and go for a while whether the day would be able to go ahead but the venue, suppliers and, of course, Ness & Rich’s wonderful family and friends all pulled together and, despite being set back a few hours, this awesome couple were able to say their I Do’s.

It was an emotional ceremony, thoughts were still obviously on Linda in the hospital, but it was so touching see how everyone was determined to make sure Ness & Rich had the wedding day they deserved. The love between these two is astonishing. How they find strength in each other and raise each other up is totally inspiring and we are just so glad we were there to document their day.
