This is such a beautiful love story and I only know the ending. Secretly, on a pretty wet Friday at the end of October, Sarah & Ryan headed to Leicester Town Hall to meet and marry, without hardly anyone knowing. They had told their two children the evening before that they wouldn’t be going to school the next day, and instead would be watching Mum and Dad get married.
Ryan spent the morning with their very excited son Ted getting ready at The Stage Hotel, Wigston. Sarah was just down the road, at their gorgeous family home with her mum and their princess of a daughter Adelaide. With only 6 guests and 2 of them being their children, this without a doubt was the smallest wedding I’ve ever been to. The ceremony took place in the Fountain room with Sarah making her entrance hand in hand with Adelaide. So emotionally intense, personal and intimate, there really wasn’t a dry eye in the room for the next 20 minutes. We had planned to spend an hour mooching around the city centre to get some portraits of the newlyweds with the VIP’s in their lives, as well as just the two of them. Not only did Mr & Mrs Armitage leave the Town Hall to a splurge of confetti but also quite a bit of rain too. This didn’t put them off though and with umbrellas in hand we explored the town centre and even sang a bit of “singing in the rain”. We eventually ended up at the bottom of New Walk and conveniently The White Peacock, one of their favourite restaurants, where they had a table booked and had gifts to give.
So the secret is out Mr & Mrs Armitage you are married, and I’m not quite sure you realise quite how beautiful a day it was. I just hope these pictures do it justice. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a massive part of it all and inviting me into your gorgeous family unit. I wish you all the happiness and love for a very happy future together. xxxx
