As a friend of the bride and her family I knew this day would be very emotional with plenty of laughter and tears along the way – I was not wrong! When I arrived at Shelley’s parents home for the bridal preps the house was a buzz with all the excitement of getting ready for a wedding day. Shelley chose a gorgeous dress with beaded bodice and full skirt, along with twinkly Christian Louboutin shoes for her big day and looked absolutely beautiful. After the ceremony I managed to whisk the couple away for a while to take some portraits before they headed off for a drive in a vintage Rolls Royce. After a wonderful wedding breakfast in the afternoon, the day was rounded off with a fantastic evening reception with a DJ playing some of the couples favourite tunes. x
