Wedding by Natasha Thompson Photography (29)
A long awaited proposal and a secret, intimate wedding are hiding in my little box of tricks for you today my lovely readers. Debbie and Matthew, and their little boy Noah, celebrated their surprise wedding in superb style – although they tell me the decor was “a bit of a mis-match”!

Their wedding photographer Natasha Thompson submitted this wedding for the blog many weeks ago, and Matthew and Debbie (I think mainly Matthew) sent their wedding report back to me this week, along with the sweetest note: “Sorry this has taken so long, we have just had a baby!” So first of all let me say a huge Congratulations to you both, and I’ll hand over to you and to Natasha with her beautiful photographs of your intimate wedding.

Who proposed, and how?

Matthew did, after a long time, many years, by hiding a ring in a new children’s toy for our son, Noah, who was three at the time. It was a ‘Happyland’ Church wedding set from the Early learning Centre.

Morning! Yesterday I featured Kateryna and Prakash’s wedding from Syon Park: a feast for the eyes, a real delight with the most luxurious wedding venue, a stunning bride and groom and lots of gorgeous portraits and pics of a wonderful celebration.

Today wedding photographer Natasha Thompson shares some more pics of the day, elegant posed pics and more of the story of the wedding reception. Groom Prakash tells us how this glorious wedding day unfolded from the point we left the happy couple after they signed the register and joined their guests.

We begin with Kateryna’s family and a Russian tradition you may not be familiar with: “Katya’s parents then took us through a traditional Russian ceremony of drinking wine and breaking bread. We got to then spend a short amount of time with our guests before we were then whisked away to the gardens around the Great Conservatory for more photos.

Elegance and class is what today’s wedding blog is all about. Kateryna and Prakash were married at Syon Park – true luxury and a real feast for the eyes! I make no apology for the lavish setting, the fabulous chequered floors and marble statues, the chaises longues and portraits of the ancestors, the panelled ceilings and ornate gardens.

Kateryna is worthy of any grand portrait herself, and she and Prakash make a handsome couple. Either of these two would stop traffic wearing jeans! – but in their wedding day finery they both look amazing.

They’ve written a lovely wedding report for the blog, which I believe is very much down to Prakash (I love wedding stories from grooms!) so I’ll hand over the storytelling reins now, and show you beautiful photographs of the wedding courtesy of Natasha Thompson to complete the feature for today.
