And to think Lauren was worried about the weather at Luton Hoo….with good reason after the fairly abysmal week leading up to Saturday. How does 31c and sun sound instead? Outdoor ceremony? We will have some of that.

Lauren and Gem found me through ace wedding planner Louise Perry (and huge thank you to Louise and her team, Carly and Natalie). Always a massive pleasure working with them all, and I’ll be doing so twice more in September. A big thank you to Timeless Acoustic for simply stunning music throughout the day as well. And to Lauren and Gem’s girls and boys. A genuinely terrific combined family.

So we begin with a day that’s 24c at noon and warming up fast. Miles of blue skies. Miles of smiles with Lauren’s prep. The venue taking shape, and a day of real meaning to come. We hadn’t met until today, with just a Skype call a few months back, but Lauren and I have been yapping on social media since then so I felt like I knew them anyway. The welcome could not have been warmer, like the day unfolding outside.

A beautiful outdoor ceremony, finished with Lauren, Gem and their children coming together to create a symbolic jar of sand. You might guess that this wasn’t the first marriage for either, but boy did the emotion fill this day. Lauren just about holding it until the speeches and first dance, when the tears came tumbling down. It’s not easy, bringing two families together, and moulding them into one. I was struck by how well they all fit. A modern family, shaped by love. And to be honest with parents like Lauren and Gem that’s a huge head-start.

Gem strikes me as a gentleman. Old-school. Laid-back. Funny. Utterly in love with Lauren. Pretty damn sharp in that suit as well.

Lauren. Incredibly warm, incredibly generous. Devoted to their children. Devoted to Gem.

What they’ve done together can’t have been easy, but they’ve done it, and then some. I have nothing but respect for this couple. It was an honour to be there with them.

Lauren. Gem. Thank you. This is your day….
