Nicola and Mark were so relaxed for their wedding. There's a lot to be said about preparing for and having your wedding all in the same place and Glenview is such a stunning place to choose.
Upstairs Nicola was surrounded by friends, the makeup artist Sam being one of them and even a cousin there for the hair, the room was filled with excitement. The balcony doors were open and we could hear the laughter of the guests below, anticipating what was to come.
Mark and the boys were calm and collected, happily getting dressed early to join the party. As we walked down the stairs I was introduced to the registrar who was also a family friend, this wedding was made by those closest to them, even the cakes were supplied by a guest.
As Nicola appeared from behind the trees to walk up the aisle Mark's face lit up with joy, their moment had finally come and here they were in the most beautiful of settings, surrounded by their nearest and dearest.
Glenview offers so much to their clients, rolling gardens, outdoor ceremonies, a beautiful reception room, never mind the effort put in to make everything come together so perfectly. For me, my job is so much easier when in such a short stroll we have both manicured gardens and countryside views, willing clients make it even more of a joy.
As I walked around the guests before dinner, taking photos and chatting I noticed how happy they were to be a part of this occasion. I grabbed the camera and quickly shot and a guest showed his friend a snapchate of the ceremony, written across the screen was 'outdoor weddings are the best'. A group of guests surrounded a computer screen, Mark's Gran was unable to make the day in person but she was brought along virtually and witnessed all the speeches along with all the excited faces who came to say hello to her.
Nicola and Mark, you have so many dear friends that wanted to be a part of your day, I hope this is a sign of things to come and you are always surrounded by those willing to go out of their way to be a part of your lives. You have a very bright future ahead of you and I do hope our paths will cross one day again and you get to fill me in on all the amazing things that are bound to happen for you.
With all my love,
