This lovely wedding at Rockliffe Hall was very much a family affair, we actually met Natalie’s Gran, Glenis and her Auntie Fiona before we met Natalie & Pravesh, who live in Abu Dhabi. Fiona & Glenis were well prepared and took away lots of information and images on their Ipad to pass on to the lucky couple, to help them with their research. We first met Pravesh just a couple of weeks prior to the wedding on their pre wedding shoot at Roseberry Topping in Cleveland, it was decidedly cold for April, especially compared to the 35 degrees that they had left behind in Abu Dhabi.
Thankfully the weather on their wedding day was definitely a lot warmer and we even saw some sunshine. Natalie stayed with her friends at Rockliffe the night before their wedding so when Jane arrived to photograph their preparations they were all very chilled. The girls had their hair styled by Dianne from Diannes Minnes hairdressing and the Bridesmaids bouquets Bridal bouquet were supplied by Fleur Maison, Marton, Middlesbrough and Natalie’s beautiful dress was provided by Elizabeth George of Middlesbrough.
As usual the guys had plenty of time so they managed to pose alongside the Aston Marton that Gran had ordered just for the day especially for Pravesh. Then they headed for the cocktail bar to greet some of the guests arriving.
After a lovely ceremony in the Rockliffe Suite we ventured outside for formal group shots and then Natalie and Pravesh to the chance to mingle with their guests some of which had travelled from Abu Dhabi and America to join them for their special day. We then returned to the Rockliffe Suite for the wedding breakfast followed by speeches after which we sneaked away with Natalie and Pravesh for a few shots around Rockliffe Hall and their amazing grounds. The dance was quite late but guests were quite happy to party on until the small hours.
