Laura Ashley Hotels, The Iliffe in Coventry Wedding
When we first met Marie and Craig we really hoped we would be photographing their wedding. We met at a couple of wedding fayres and their rapport with us soon began.
Over the last two years we’ve stayed in touch and we met up for their engagement shoot a few weeks ago. This was followed by their beautiful August wedding at Laura Ashley Hotels, The Iliffe in Coventry.
Their plans were in place when we met, with The Chace Hotel in Coventry booked for an August Saturday. Now two years later The Chace has become the stunning new Laura Ashley Hotel, The Iliffe. The Iliffe is a wonderful transformation. The staff provide the personal touches and attention to detail a wedding needs. The hotel offers a combination of beautiful interiors and easily accessible grounds, which makes for a wonderful wedding day.
The day was all about perfect planning, Marie and Craig did everything to make this a relaxed wedding for family and friends to enjoy. For us natural photos and a mix of both indoor and outdoor images for our couple.
When we arrived Marie and her bridesmaids were already in the swing of a wedding morning with Bride to Be balloons and the wine flowing. Friends arrived to help Marie into her exquisite dress from Lisa Rose Bridal, whilst downstairs Craig and the guests arrived.
Marie was escorted down the aisle by her son and her father. I’m not sure who was most proud as they arrived. Following the service, the weather was perfect, sunny with a gentle breeze which allowed time for family photos and for the guests to enjoy themselves.
After the speeches and wedding breakfast we had to time to walk in the grounds for some photos before the first dance and the party started.
A gorgeous wedding for this special couple.
