Matara Centre wedding – Natalie & Daniel

Natalie and Daniel were married on a gorgeous Midsummers day with a magical Matara Centre wedding in the Cotswolds which lent itself perfectly to A Midsummers Nights Dream. Their emotional outdoor ceremony took place in the calming centre in the lake, followed by a drinks reception and then a tree naming ceremony in the fields surrounding Matara. Natalie and Daniel laughed and cried all day along with their friends and family, it was a really personal and touching day and everyone made me feel so welcome. Their reading from the Notebook brought a tear to everyone’s eyes:

‘Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it was like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spend together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.  I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.’

They also had these wonderful words to say about me:

“With Daniel being a photographer, choosing a photographer was always going to be a bit tricky. It was important that we would have this day preserved in a beautiful way, with no regrets. When I first found Tarah, we hadn’t even found our venue or secured our date. We instantly loved her reportage style and her photographs emulated the style that we had been searching for. We were determined to book her as soon as possible. Tarah was perfect on the day. She made everything so straight-forward.”
