Leah and Andrew arrived at Chelsea Town Hall for their civil wedding ceremony with their three daughters. In the first floor waiting room we took a few photos before two Chelsea Pensioners from the Royal Hospital arrived to act as their witnesses. Leah had only told the children the day before that they were getting married. They came down from Yorkshire for a few days in London and everything that she chose for them – from dresses, to shoes, to hairbands – fitted perfectly. They looked so sweet sat on the red staircase at Chelsea.
Leah wore a white lace shift dress and silk court shoes and carried pretty roses in pale pink and cream. Andrew wore a navy suit with pale blue tie and a cream rose buttonhole. The girls entered the Rossetti Room first, followed by Leah and Andrew. Everyone laughed when Chelsea Pensioner Walter made a funny comment – the girls seemed very impressed with both of the Chelsea Pensioners. The three girls looked on with smiley faces as their parents married and were only distracted for a moment by a stray rose in one of the bouquets.
During the signing of the Register, Leah resolved the rose when the girls went up for their photograph. Order was restored! Everyone except Leah and Andrew went outside and when they walked out they were covered head to toe in heart shaped confetti. They waved goodbye to the Chelsea Pensioners and then we did a family photo with grey and pale pink paddles (name deleted for privacy). We then did a couple of shots of Leah and Andrew on the Chelsea steps.
