Today’s delightful couple were lucky enough to find the perfect wedding setting at the bride’s parents home.  Lucky girl.  Set amongst the picturesque Shropshire Hills without restrictions they had the freedom to create everything from scratch for a truly handmade wedding.  “We weren’t set on a particular style, it kind of evolved from the setting and…
