Father to Four Daughters Blog Post 1

As Jenna entered the wedding car and her Dad, Rob, softly closed the door, they shared a look, just for a quick second. That look was full of love, full of joy. I glanced at Rob and could see him bursting with pride. Jenna was on her way to marry the love of her life. A proud moment for any parent, I'm sure. I feel the water flood to my eyes. I always make a funny noise when I hold back the tears. Gulp. Swallow those tears down, I say to myself. I try not to show how emotional I get on a wedding day. Thankfully the camera covers my face. I wonder if, no, when, Rob started coming to terms with giving his daughter away. Something I'm probably going to have to do four times. And then before I know it, Rob joins Jenna in the car heading to the ceremony and it's back to work. Mind on getting to the ceremony myself gives me a brief respite to compose myself.

Writing this I check on my daughters. Sleeping soundly. 50% of me wants them to grow up and live wonderful lives. 50% of me wants them to stay in this moment forever. Logic tells me I'm going to be in Rob's place one day. I better start preparing.

Slaters Country Inn Wedding | Emma & Paul

I feel like I say this after every wedding, and I do, but Emma and Paul are just the best people!  And what a day their wedding at Slaters Country Inn in Staffordshire was! From the first time we met I could tell that this was going to be a fun wedding. Emma and Paul are two people who are fun to be around, enjoy a laugh, share a love for their cat Johnny as well as both having a great taste in music. For Emma, the day started at Slaters Country Inn where the bridal party enjoyed their breakfast before the getting ready started.  Whilst the girls enjoyed their breakfast Paul and his best man, Dave, were getting ready at home, and keeping a check on Paul's 3 weather apps to make sure we were kept up to date with the immediate, short term, and longer weather forecast before heading to the venue. A quick hello to the guests and it was soon time for Paul to make his way to the gorgeous Wedding house where he awaited Emma's arrival. Needless to say, all went to plan and the new Mr & Mrs Wright were soon raising a glass with their friends and family in the lovely gardens.

The wedding took place on the 10th June 2017 with the ceremony taking place in the Wedding House at Slaters Country Inn, followed by the wedding breakfast and evening party in the Briar Suite. Staffordshire Wedding Photography by Simon Dixey Photography.
