Sarah & Gavin Get Married!

I went to Riverside Hotel in Mildenhall to shoot Sarah and Gavins big day!
This was such a honour as I met Sarah, Gavin and little Isabel and Jacob a while back whilst doing a family shoot for them. They really helped me when I first started my business and I was so thrilled when asked to capture their wedding. 
I met Sarah getting ready in her room and was blow away by how beautiful she looked. Very calm and collected she and her bridesmaids got ready with the children. 
Not only was it their wedding day but also their son Jacobs Birthday too so he opened his presents.
Before we knew it was time to go down to the ceremony. I was met by a sea of excited faces of friends and family. 
There were many emotions from everyone, some tears and lots of laughter especially when the best man Jim gave a brilliant reading of all the best love songs put together in a poem.
Afterwards we went outside into the sunshine were a bouncy castle, caricature artist and tea and cakes were waiting. The children were free to run around while everyone chatted making for some brillaint natural shots.
Some touching speeches followed later with Gavin saying a few words about his family. Jacob enjoyed a surprise Birthday cake and the DJ kicked off the dancing and music.
It really was perfect that it was hard for me to pick out some of my favourite shots telling the story of their day but here are a few...
