What could be more perfect than a beautiful wedding? A family wedding! I have been counting down the days until David's cousin Helen got married to Steve. I knew it was going to be a fabulous day, spending time with the people I love, doing the job that I love, seeing everyone so happy. It was just perfect. Helen and Steve had a quiet marriage ceremony the day before, and the next day had their blessing at their family church. When Helen was getting ready she said she felt so nervous even though they were married! It was a big day for them both, and for all their friends and family to witness the vows they had made for each other.
I was an emotional wreck when I saw Helen's dress, it was gorgeous. And I have always admired David's Aunties garden so I was just itching to get outside with the dress and all the other little bits. Just in time before the rain too, which was unexpected and persisted! I was just happy to see such smiling faces as I arrived at the church, and Steve was beaming at everyone as they entered.
It was so strange seeing my little ones there, all giddy and squealing with glee when they saw me. And I cried when I saw my beautiful niece as she arrived looking about 10 years older. I seriously couldn't keep myself together! The church was magnificent inside, and Helen's beautiful angelic, but strong, voice filled the room as we sang the hymns. It was a wonderful service. We didn't spend long outside as it was still raining, but thankfully by the time we got to Boston Park for the photos the sun had come back out again! Shooting here was magic, it's just opposite the house so we have often gone across here with the kids and enjoyed lazy days. It was the perfect place for photos.
The reception was at the George IV pub, which was actually pretty amazing! We were bowled over with the eccentric function room which didn't need anything adding to it as it was so beautiful and full of character. Helen's friend made the most amazing cake, and then made a surprise RD2D cake for Steve. Helen whipped out personalised converse trainers for her bridal party, including little pageboy Finlay.
It was a beautiful, emotional day. I was so happy to be able to share it and take photos too, I couldn't put the camera down. I just wanted to capture it all for Helen and Steve. I did eventually put it down and enjoyed some moves on the dance floor, and silly faces in the photobooth!
Helen and Steve, I love you guys and hope you love the photos xx
