This is Gemma and Kevin. I joined them last October for their autumn wedding at St Mary’s Church in Barnsley, followed by drinks at the Civic Centre, and then a big wedding party at Oakwell Hall in Birstall, near Leeds.
Highlights for me included watching Gemma receive the blue VW Beetle which Kevin said he would buy her if they ever got married, a man who kept to his word all those years later. Then another highlight was seeing Kevin (a keen photographer) get surprised with his own gallery at the Civic centre, all arranged by Gemma in secret.
A final highlight to write about, is the honour of having spent the day with Gemma’s dad, Ian Garnham, who became ill whilst Gemma and Kevin were away enjoying the honeymoon of a liftime in Antartica. After cutting their trip short to return to be with him, Ian sadly passed away. I’ve never found it so hard to process the photos of someone’s wedding, and this blog is dedicated to Ian. x
