One of the most emotional and beautiful weddings this year… Stunning Chessie and Lee first got in contact with me after seeing Claire and Dave’s wedding photographs through Sam and Matt whose wedding I had the pleasure of photographing earlier on in the year. They wanted a wedding with lots of the traditions and most importantly all of their loving family and friends to be there to celebrate with them. As Chessie and Lee have three gorgeous children of their own it was great to have all their family and friends children there too to celebrate.
Chessie got ready at home in the morning, with all her bridesmaids and the two family dogs and was lucky enough to have her friend do her gorgeous hair as well as all the bridesmaids. There was plenty of laughter, champagne, a few happy tears and definitely lots of deep breaths! It was a gorgeous moment when Chessie’s Dad and all her Bridesmaids saw her in her dress for the first time. Lee had an amazing entrance to his wedding as a surprise from his wife to be. Chessie had arranged for The Nene Valley Chapter of the Harley Owners Group to escort Lee and his best men to their ceremony. What an entrance and what a sound! Lee was in the A-team van with his Dad, Best men, Ushers and Sons and what seemed like 50 plus Harley’s following them.
The ceremony was just beautiful and Chessie’s Dad having not been very well had worked very hard to be able to walk his daughter down the aisle. This was a magical and very special moment. After the ceremony everybody was certainly in the mood for celebrating, they had a couple of group photographs and a massive amount of confetti was thrown out the front of the Hilton. The weather was supposed to rain all day but instead we had glorious sunshine!
The speeches… Well let’s just say there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Chessie’s Dad gave a gorgeous speech about his daughter and son-in-law, Lee’s brother did an amazing best man’s speech and Chessie did a loving speech about her father, her family, her husband and her in laws. Chessie and Lee cut the cake that Chessie’s mum had so beautifully made and everybody carried on the celebrations in to the evening with a brilliant band to get everyone dancing!
