Lauren and Ross’ wedding was one I had been looking forward to for some time. Due to the pandemic, they had gone through the misery and stress of postponing their wedding six times! Eventually, they were able to reschedule their wedding almost a year to the day of their original wedding date! It was absolutely a wedding that was worth the wait!
The day started with the two of them getting ready at different houses: Ross got ready at his house and Lauren got ready at her parents’ house. I visited them both to capture how they spent the morning. Feeling nervous, Ross had a quiet morning, enjoying a drink and the company of a few family members, who helped to keep him relaxed and get him ready for the day. In contrast to this, Lauren spent her morning with her four bridesmaids (Lorna, Kerry, Bryony and Sarah), her parents and Nanny, with additional family members joining them as the morning went on. It was a lively morning filled with laughter, getting glammed-up by the brilliant Toni Clark and Amy Hales, as well as playing with their two adorable dogs: Peggy-Sue and Mabel. Soon, it was time for Lauren to get into her breathtaking La Belle Angele dress with the help of her mum (Ruth) and bridesmaid (Kerry). Once everyone was ready, Lauren was whisked off to the brilliant Southwood Hall in her family friend’s corvette.
When they arrived, they were greeted by the lovely staff at Southwood Hall along with the registrar, Malcolm. He hosted a wonderful ceremony, which got everyone cracking up and even encouraged the best man to take a bow once he had handed out the rings. It was a really special celebration filled with movie quotes and music that were included for sentimental reasons that reflected who they are as individuals and as a couple.
After the ceremony, we went outside to kick off the party. We strolled along the paved walkway, led by the newlyweds, which took us to the back of the venue where we were greeted by a herd of cattle. The cows grazed happily on the nearby fields, whilst the guests enjoyed the confetti line, along with spending some time to take a few group photos and eating lots of scrummy canapés. It was so much fun! Their guests were up for a laugh and a good time, which I loved documenting through my camera.
Soon, I will post part two of this AMAZING wedding. Make sure to come back and take a look at what happened next!
