Cheryl and Lee were married a few weeks ago at the beautiful St Oswalds + St Edmund Arrowsmith Church with their reception at the Isla Gladstone in Liverpool. I knew as soon as I met them that Cheryl was going to be giddy, and she was! Her smile is truly infectious and it didn’t leave her face for the entire day. Even when they thought someone had arranged as a surprise for them to release doves (Cheryl, like me, is terrified of birds!) she dug deep and had a good laugh about it, as did her friends who knew only too well this would not have been Cheryl’s chosen activity just after she walked out the church! Being the polite people they are they contacted every dove release company they could find so that they could say thank you but to no avail. Lee’s grandma called them a few days later to let them know that the couple who got married in the neighbouring church on the same day were missing a pair of doves!! I love these stories and these memories will be something they always laugh about.
It was such a pleasure to be invited into Cheryl and Lee’s special day and to be let into a little secret, that Cheryl was pregnant and they were going to share this amazing news with their friends and family during Lee’s speech. I have never run so fast to capture so many reactions to this brilliant news. There were lots of tears and it was so clear how delighted everyone was for them. They are such a lovely couple and love each other so much, it it always such a joy to capture such a gorgeous connection between people.
Massive congratulations to you. I am so excited to hear your baby news!
