Robert & Rikki

20th October 2021

Today I was photographing the wedding for Robert and Rikki at the great hall at mains in Lancashire. The day started with the bridal preparations in the main house adjacent to the great hall, Rikki was there with her bridesmaids and mother all getting ready for the big day ahead.

The beautiful wedding dress was supplied by wed2b wedding dresses which looks stunning on Rikki, as her mother fastened up the back of her dress for her.

Soon it was time to head across to the great hall where Rikki would meet her husband-to-be, Robert, there was one final job to do and that was to introduce her father into the room to see his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time and emotional and teary but joyful moment for both of them.

The ceremony got underway and Robert stood anxiously waiting for his bride to walk down the aisle as he put his hands together against his head in anticipation of his beautiful bride's appearance, as she met Robert at the top of the aisle, the butterflies in their stomachs flew away and happiness overwhelmed with big smiles from them both as the ceremony started.

The couple were now husband and wife and everybody cheered and clapped with celebration and joy as the newlyweds made their way back down the aisle.

After drinks, photos and confetti, it was time for the wedding speeches and wedding reception to start, with more tears and laughter to be had, everyone enjoyed the wedding breakfast speeches as the day went on.

Later on in the day, it was time for the evening party and celebrations to get into full swing, with the cutting of the cake and the bride and groom's first dance who is time to let your hair down how a few drinks and party until the small hours of the morning.
