It is always something special when, on a wedding day, it is not just about two people becoming 'Mr & Mrs' but it's also about bringing together two families, especially with this gorgeous couple who have had their share of tears and hard times along the way.
On one side there was Lisa and her three fabulous children. Lisa, an inspiration to us all, has recently lost over 8 stone.
And on the other side, there was Neil and his son Ben who had been widowed some years earlier, when Neil's first wife tragically died.
So this day was super special, taking two little separate families and bringing them together to become one big, happy family!
It was a gorgeous sunny day in June when Lisa and Neil tied the Knot at The Parsonage Hotel, York.
Whilst Lisa got ready with her daughter upstairs, Neil and (his father in law to be) Bill got to grips with those pesky cravats in the lounge. The boys all looked very dapper in their wedding suits from York Hire Wear.
And, the bride looked simply amazing!
Lisa wore her dream dress from Cinderellas of Skipton. The "Tobago" dress was A line with lace and tulle and was modified to add the gorgeous sleeves to give the dress the finishing touches that Lisa wanted.
The ceremony was very emotional, the room was filled with plenty of love and laughter, especially when the wedding ring refused to go onto Neil's hand!
After the ceremony, I got to spend some time with Lisa and Neil in the fabulous grounds of The Parsonage Hotel. Capturing some very special portraits of the new Mr & Mrs Pallister. The hotel has so many stunning locations both inside and out, we were really spoilt for choice!
And as the sun began to set, I took Lisa and Neil outside to capture one last image taking full advantage of the surroundings in the beautiful early evening light. It was a truly wonderful day!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Pallister
