Before their ceremony I was on hand to photograph the last parts of both Anthony and Jo’s wedding preparations. With their three children present to share these moments, it was clear how much of a family occasion it was going to be.
And it was Charlie, Louis and Molly who started proceedings, paving the way for Jo with her father as she took her slow walk towards the man that within the next few minutes she’d call her husband.
On a day that initially threatened to be grey, it was as if the occasion itself had summoned the clouds to part and in perfect timing as they made their way into the Shottle Hall gardens the sun shone on them as they were showered in confetti.
It was then time for the wedding party to take centre stage, with tributes that left most reaching for the tissues.
From then there was only one thing left to do, and with the band providing an amazing soundtrack there was no hesitation for a big celebration.
