Claire and Lee - at Tankersley!
If the bride is at the venue I like to make the first visit brief as I can go back later once the girls are dressed and ready. So off to find the chaps (and chapess). Lee felt it right that his sister should be his main support and asked her to take on the role of Best Lady. Unfortunately his father was too unwell to be there and his mum was taken some time back so I suppose he was relying on his sister for support. They were just arriving and looking good. Vicky had the rings bought at Argos as a matching pair, both in white gold. I took a few photos and included the Usher - young Ben and Claire's dad, Kevin. The suits came from Alfred Angelo.
Back to see the girls. Wow - they looked stunning! The bridesmaid dresses were grey and quite fitted. Mum, Sharon was ready also looking really lovely in a dark blue dress with a turquoise jacket.Then dad appeared! Would there be tears? A few held back, trying to come through, but they all did very well! It wasn't long before Kaydie from the hotel gave the knock. "Are you ready to go?" The ceremony was in the Crook Barn. Claire loved it when she came for a viewing, and it did look amazing yet again. The registrars are the best! They allowed me to photograph and video from the front so I captured the procession arriving and of course Lee - in tears - overwhelmed by emotion as he saw his fiancee walking up the aisle! Claire said later this was her favourite part of the day, looking at Lee as she walked towards him.
