Clearwell Castle | Gloucestershire | UK

Natasha and Dan met in Pitcher and Piano in Bristol. Dan had just moved back to London after living in Bristol for 10 years but was back for a friends leaving do. Despite having lots of mutual friends they had somehow never met! After years of peer pressure from family and friends Dan knew when the time was right and popped the question while we were in our robes in the restaurant at Bath Spa!

They did not use a wedding planner, choosing instead to ‘work together with the venue and source the most perfect suppliers and finer details’ for themselves.

Here’s their wedding day story told by Natasha:

I had no preference on where we got married so I threw that one straight to Dan and he, being a Harry Potter fan, said he’d like to look at castles. From that moment it all started to come to life in my mind. Castle for me meant regal, elegant, classy and classic. Those were the words I used when making choices and talking to people about what it would be like. So despite my absolute LOVE of colour, when I visualised the wedding I knew it had to all be white/cream/ivory with just lots of dark green coming from natural foliage.

Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire was the only venue that ticked all the boxes. Castle, in our region, and big enough for all our guests. Wow, we lucked out that it just so happened to help provide us with THE perfect day.

I bought my day dress very shortly after we got engaged when I saw it in Wed2B’s Bristol shop window. It made me stop and take a picture. I instantly fell in love. It was two years before the wedding but if I didn’t buy it and I couldn’t find it or something I loved as much closer to the wedding I’d be devastated, so I got it! My veil and shoes were sorted way more last minute. Just in case of any major spillages I also got a back up dress. If I needed to bust some moves or wasn’t so comfortable anymore in my day time dress I thought I could get changed. On ASOS I found a beautiful beaded, fishtail number that was perfect. I loved it almost as much as my day time dress.

Advice to those planning a wedding

Book as much time off work for wedding prep and wedding celebrations as you can!
Book a honeymoon. You’ll need something to look forward to when the day you’ve been building up to for 2 years is done.
Book the best photographer you can find – because the day only lasts a day unfortunately – but awesome pictures last forever.

To anyone thinking of booking Jonny for your special day, DO IT! He’s amazing. He’s such a dear, lovely yet cool person to have around. At the same time you’ll hardly notice he’s there! He will capture the love and emotion and atmosphere of the day which is how you’ll keep the day alive forever. He’s SO easy to talk to and deal with before and after the big day. The whole family adore the images and can’t stop looking at them. I’m so chuffed to bits we chose Jonny as our photographer and I’ll be recommending him forever more.
