CHRIS Smith and Natalie Carver were married at St Peter’s Roman Catholic church, Bromsgrove, by Monsignor Graham Wilkinson.

Chris, of Hill Lane, Bromsgrove, is the son of Philip and Joy Smith, while Natalie, of the same address, is the youngest daughter of Alan and Mary Carver.

The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a couture dress of kingfisher blue with a white sash and hand-sewn beading and carried a bouquet of pink and white roses.

She was accompanied by her sister Donna Jones, who was the matron of honour, her niece Laura Jones, who was the chief bridesmaid, and Amy Davenport, bridesmaid and the groom’s cousin’s daughter.

Justin Ledbury, the groom’s best friend, was the best man.

The happy couple held their reception at the Grafton Manor Hotel and honeymooned in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.

Chris is an electrician and Natalie is a primary school teacher.
