Louise found me after she saw the photographs I took from my cousins Wedding at Peckforton Castle, she told me she knew where she would be getting married and who would be photographing it. In her own admission, after she booked the venue and me, she did nothing for 18 months! Lol But let me tell you this girl can plan a wedding like the best of them.
I genuinely felt so completely at home with these two and their families because they are so like my own, a little bit crazy, completely mischievous, and always up for a party. Not like I need much encouragement but I literally didn’t stop laughing all day. There was so much love and happiness floating about that I thought my heart would burst. The fellas arrived at the venue all looking dapper, although poor sick boy needed a good half an hour to recover from his car sickness (you hero!!), but he put up with me pulling his leg about it for a bit.
The girls were all organised like clockwork and loving the excitement of the morning. Louise’s mum was nervous but totally excited to walk her gorgeous girl down the aisle. Louise was calm as could be; There is a girl who knew she was marrying the right man who would love her like she deserves to be loved. Isn’t that everything.
The Chester Doubletree Hilton were on form, and the fab suppliers from extra fleur events venue dressing had decorated the 18th Century Manor house to perfection. Tom and the team were on form and soon the room was filled with family and friends and the groom was filled with nerves. Id told Gaz I hoped he’d cry when he saw Louise, but deep down I didn’t think he would… But I saw him catch a glimpse of his bride and with a firm glance to the ceiling he only just kept his emotions in check. Obviously, I have no self-restraint whatsoever and I cried like a baby.
Louise floated down the aisle of the beautiful Manor House on the arm of her incredibly proud mum, with a picture of her beloved dad tied gently to the bouquet, I knew he would be with her every step of the way. She looked sensational and, By the look on his face, Gaz couldn’t believe that this was the woman he would get to call his wife.
My wedding weather mantra had worked its magic and it was sunshine and roses for everyone. Spring was showing us all exactly what it was all about and I couldn’t have been more perfect for these two. Louise and Gaz managed to make me cry again by thanking me for everything id done for them on their wedding day, and although im rubbish and overly emotional when people are nice to me, it filled me with pride knowing id done them proud.
What a wedding! What an amazing group of people. Ill never forget it. It was magic. Im now adopted and as such im their official family photographer so I know I will get to meet all these gorgeous people again one day, and I cant wait. What a reunion that will be. Much love Lisa x
