After a whopping 12 years together, Alex & Nat tied the knot at The Old Rectory, in Handsworth Sheffield. It was a warm, rainy day at this beautiful hidden gem of venue. The Old Rectory is tucked away in Handsworth, and is a lovely grade two listed stone building with Georgian frontage.
Both brides got ready at family homes, surrounded by their bridal parties. Natalie had her long, brown hair swept back into a classy, bridal up-do, topped off with baby’s breath flowers. She wore a beautiful, floor-length, white gown with a heart detail on the back. Alex meanwhile kept her cute, ginger, pixie-cut pretty & simple by adding a silver leaf headdress. She wore a gorgeous floor-length, off shoulder, white gown.
The ceremony was an emotional affair, as family members burst into tears seeing Natalie walk down the aisle, followed shortly after by Alex. Both of whom cried happy tears too – bless! After the first kiss, I-dos and signing of the register, everyone made their way through The Old Rectory for some celebratory drinks. Alex, Nat & I grabbed some brollies before making our way out for some lovely bride & bride photos in the rain. We then hopped into the vintage hire van for a peaceful drive, as Alex & Nat enjoyed a bit of quiet time together as newlyweds.
The wedding breakfast room had been decorated in lots of pretty pastel colours, fairy lights and rustic centrepieces. The meal being served was afternoon tea, which included a huge cake platter! 🍰
The evening was so much fun! Since the rain cleared up everyone gathered outside for a huge confetti tunnel. Alex & Nat enjoyed their first dance together as newlyweds, before being joined on the floor by family & friends. Guests had a great time playing about with the photobooth props and taking snapshots. There was even a caricaturist making the rounds. It was a lovely day for the new Mrs & Mrs Speed, and a fab way to kickstart married life.
