I first met Lauren & Mat all those years ago in high school... fast forward 15 years & I had the honour of photographing their wedding day & watching them become husband and wife after 11 years together.
I headed over to Tower Hill Barns in Wrexham and met Lauren & the girls getting ready in the new cottages, which by the way, are gorgeous! It was so exciting for me to walk into bridal prep and be greeted by a room full of school friends. As the girls finished up getting ready, I headed into the barn to see how Mat was doing before the ceremony. It was such a great moment to see him stood there with "the boys from school" a.k.a the groomsmen, lined up next to him wedding ready in their suits.
Lauren looked beautiful walking down the aisle in her beaded dress, bouquet made by her mum & a big smile on her face. After the ceremony it was back to the bar to celebrate the occasion as me Lauren & Mat headed out into the sunshine for their portraits. We were shortly joined by the son Louis who loved the suggestion of Mum & Dad swinging him round the field!
I know I'm probably a bit biased but I had SO much fun. Photographing a friends wedding really doesn't feel like work in the slightest, being able to witness their day was an absolute pleasure & a day I'll always remember.
Thanks so much for inviting me to share your day with you :)
