This sweet pair met in Chile and had lovely Latin American details throughout their wedding day. They were married in Salisbury where her parents live.
The day started with some pampering at Jas Hair
for Gabbi and her Grandma, and other guests popped in too. We met the bridesmaids at the Godolphin School where her Dad works and finished off getting ready there. Once they were all dressed a vintage car arrived to take the Bride and her Dad to the church.
The guys got ready at Sarum College
with views to the Cathedral. Tom had old friends as his groomsmen and they were all up for a laugh.
At St Paul’s Church
the groomsmen and Vicar Peterson waited to greet the bridesmaids as they arrived in very blustery conditions. A long line of bridesmaids filled the aisle as Gabi and her Dad Richard reached Tom at the front of the church. Richard and Tom embraced then it was time to get on with the ceremony. The large stained glass window filled the space with gorgeous light. The service was warm and friendly with lots of giggles from Peterson. After the vows their friend Pierre played the piano beautifully as they made it official in the registers.
Tea and cakes were served in the church, guests chatted while we took group shots with their nearest and dearest. Then everyone gathered outside to hurl confetti at the newlyweds heading for their getaway vehicle.
Tourists were delighted as they pulled up to the Cathedral
in a picture perfect scene. We headed to the cloisters for some privacy to take photos of the couple and were joined by the bridal party as they arrived. The rest of the guests arrived for drinks and canapés amongst artworks by Sabrina Cant.
The meal was served around blustery tables in the cloisters. Tall candelabra flower arrangements filled the space beautifully and guests had little cacti wedding favours to take home. It was a delightful meal by the refectory catering team- guests especially loved their tequila posset! They finished off the meal with a a strong trio of speeches from the Father of the Bride, Groom and his Best Man Jonny: all three were funny and sweet. Then it was straight on to the cutting of the cake, which was made by a friend with the most exquisite sugar work peonies.
The couple were quickly joined by their friends during the first dance, they were all keen to get dancing. The jazz band continued to delight and the party was strong on the tiny dance floor.

There was cheese, cake and chatting into the night before gathering outside again, this time in the dark with the excited crowd trying their hardest to send Mr & Mrs W off quietly to their honeymoon.Click here for their Sheffield Botanical Gardens engagement shoot…
