A few months before the wedding I met Hannah and Gavin for a pre wedding shoot at Shell Island where we tried some paint throwing. I knew then these guys were up for anything and good fun.
It was an early start on the day of the wedding and despite the early start we had a fabulous morning, not really rushed, just very relaxed and easy. Hannah had forgotten her hair piece but I really doubt anybody would have noticed as she looked incredible. What struck me that morning was Hannah and Gavin’s kind warm hearted nature. They are both definitely people persons and could not have done enough for family friends or even strangers. You really got the same sense from their family and friends as well.
The ceremony in Tower Hill Barns got underway with the jokers of the group starting early when the best man pretended to not find the ring, the registrar was quick to tell him off! That was the theme of the day I think there was plenty of comedians there. The speeches were great, I can’t say I understood most of the best man’s speech as he liked to drift the story off a bit but it was really funny and very personal and I think written from the heart. I know that Hannah’s Dad was not keen on public speaking so I was really touched when he stood up and raised a toast to Hannah and Gavin, I thought that really showed the love for his daughter in that moment. Having children really pushes you beyond what you think you are capable of.
The evening arrived and I must give kudos to Gav’s mum, what a dancer, I don’t think I could have kept up with her! She gave me a hug and a kiss at the end of the day as I was leaving and that really summed up for me how lovely everybody was.
