As Luke and his boys were also getting ready at the venue, Roger was able to capture some prep shots.
We love it when a couple are up for anything. Luke particularly wanted to emulate Darth Vader on his wedding day (should we warn Courtney?)
Oblivious to this other worldliness going on below her window, Courtney was putting the finishing touches to her outfit.
It was time to go and get married. While Courtney and her lovely mum were in with the registrar, the bridesmaids cracked me up.
When Luke first saw his beautiful bride walk towards him, there was no holding back of the tears. Not a dry eye in the house.
Luke and Courtney chose to write their own vows. Oh My Word, I was in bits, as was Megan the wedding co-ordinator, and we barely know the couple. I think Courtney’s mum caught the teary eyed bug too. The part where Luke said he wanted to dance with her until both their knees gave out. I’m a soppy cow, sorry (not sorry!)
After the ceremony, all the guests filed out to the stunning grounds of the Manor. We had a bit of fun with some of the groups, well, you can’t be super serious all the time.
We stole our newleyweds off for some photos. Let us know your favourite.
After dinner, it was time for the speeches. Courtney’s sister Latoya went first, followed by Luke and then his best man Jordan.
The couple were willing to come out with us again after dinner and speeches. The Manor is beautiful so we made use of the gorgeous rooms.
It wouldn’t be a Shutter Bliss Wedding without an umbrella shot (it was drizzling after all)
Not only were our couple great fun to be around, so were the whole bridal party. So instead of looking at me like a mad Irish Woman, they were quick to give me this….
And then came the dancing.
So there we have it. It was a wonderful day for two beautiful people. You were a joy to be around Mr and Mrs Roberts, thank you.
