{Gemma & Lee} Abbey House {18 August 2012}

I first met Gemma and Lee at a wedding I photographed back in 2010. Gemma was then pregnant with their daughter Emily and it was lovely to hear that they wanted to book me for their own wedding in  August 2012. 

Two years on we met up on a typical British summers day in June to do their Pre Wedding Shoot by Coniston Lake. We had a lovely walk by the waters edge snapping away photographs for their guestbook. 

The day before Gemma and Lee’s wedding and all through the night the rain had been torrential, everyone was hoping that it would eventually stop and the sun would come out. 

As the girls were making the finishing touches getting ready, I made my way to Abbey House Hotel in Barrow to capture the patiently waiting Groom. 

As Gemma and Lee said their vows and became Husband and Wife, there was one special little girl in the audience who couldn’t wait to congratulate them both!

With the perfectly coordinated VW Camper van waiting for them, it was off to Furness Abbey for some photographs of the new Mr & Mrs Salter. 

Back in the grounds of the Hotel we went for a short walk to capture some natural photographs and not forgetting that all important family portrait. 

It was then onto the family and friend groups. With the sun shining the light was perfect and everyone else enjoyed drinks on the lawn. 

After Lee managed to lose his written speech in his jacket pocket and with a little help from Gemma, the speeches began. Gemma’s Dad, Lee and his Best Man all managed to make everyone laugh, cry and smile.

With the evening sun still out, the guests filtered back into the garden to enjoy the last of the summer sun.

I normally finish each of my wedding blog posts with a photograph of the bride and groom doing their first dance together… Sorry Lee, it looks like Emily gets the limelight on the dance floor this time! 

It really was a pleasure to photograph Gemma and Lee’s Wedding and be apart of their special day. 

First it was Liza & Scott’s Wedding in May 2010…

Then Gemma & Lee’s in August 2012….

& I have now just taken a booking for Matthew and Jeniffer’s Wedding in April 2013! I wonder if we can keep this chain going?! 

Best wishes and looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
