Laura and John's wedding day!! At the beautiful Barns Hotel which I hadn't photographed in before except for their engagement shoot. I was excited to return and get some stunning shots by the river later as long as the weather held out! The forecast did not look promising, and the clouds hung on overhead. I found all the girls getting ready upstairs, with Laura's sister Natalie doing everyone's hair and the little ones racing about with all the excitement. We had the best view and could see everyone arriving, Laura got so excited when she saw John arrive. I went down to meet them all, and couldn't believe that one of John's best men had less than a week ago broken his leg and wrist on an activity assault course! He had a brave face and hobbled his way about not once complaining.
Laura looked absolutely beautiful in her dress, and her bridesmaids were stunning. Just as they waited to walk across to the barn, the clouds decided to open and out came the rain! After a very emotional ceremony, we spilled outside to discover the rain had stopped so it was all go for photos before the next wave came.
Laura and John are just the loveliest pair, so head over heels in love with each other and just incredibly thoughtful and caring. Their friends and family were wonderful, and it was a joy for me to be among familiar faces from their dearest friends' wedding which I photographed a few years ago. I was also thrilled to be working alongside Danny again who did the video for the day, nicest guy ever and it was great to catch up.
Laura and John, and their gorgeous little family Big Jack, Little Jack and Daisy, I wish you all the happiness and love. Thank you so much for having me and for being just absolute gems xx
