Gemma and Steve were so looking forward to their Wedding at Parklands, Quendon Hall, and so were we. As with many, their Wedding had been so long in the planning but with Gemma and Steve they had a few more considerations. Arriving at Parklands, we made our way up to the Bridal Changing rooms where Gemma, her Mum and Bridesmaids were having their make-up done. Gemma was having her hair done as well and how lovely it looked! With hair and makeup finished Gemma moved to the red room, which gave us more space with the Flowergirls, Bridesmaids and Pageboy! In between all this, we managed to meet Steve downstairs in the House capturing a few pictures of him with his Best Man and Ushers before we then returned to take some pictures of Gemma with all her Attendants before it was time for her to see the Registrars. With Guests seated, Gemma made her entrance into the Civil Ceremony with her Mum at her side. After the Ceremony, although chilly outside but dry, we took the family group photographs they wanted in front of the fountain. Gemma, Steve and ourselves left the Guests socialising and enjoying the drinks reception whilst we went around the lovely grounds of Parklands.

The sun came out on cue as we photographed the happy couple at the lake end, but not wanting to keep Gemma and Steve away from their guests for too long we soon sent then back to the reception.

The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion, and once their Guests were seated, the speeches took place. Afterwards and before the evening celebrations started, as Gemma and Steve wanted some images capturing the inside of Parklands we spent a short time with them taking these pictures.

Evening Guests arrived shortly afterwards and witnessed the cake cutting before the evening went into full swing. A memorable day with endless smiles, a special couple, nothing was too much trouble for Gemma and Steve, which considering Gemma is wheelchair bound, was a big effort, in and out of her chair all day! Thank you!
