We know Lauren from way back, Deborah and Lauren worked together side by side, got pregnant at the same time, ending up in hospital at the same time and gave birth a day apart to two girls in 2009…
Lauren sent me a message out of the blue and ask me if I was free on 22nd December 2018 for a few hours to take some photographs. Little did I know exactly what she meant, she had organised her and Mark’s wedding on the quiet. No one was to know and she asked if both myself and Deborah would be their witnesses. It was funny trying to communicate to Lauren making sure no one was around her in case word got out.
Thankfully no one found out as Lauren was very good at keeping everything a secret, she didn’t even tell her daughter that she was going to be her bridesmaid until the night before!
Their service was held at the Lagan Valley Civic Centre, it was beautiful. It was exactly what Lauren and Mark wanted the perfect wedding day with just the two of them and Roxy as bridesmaid (and of course Deborah as unofficial bridesmaid) and me to capture their day for them to show their family later that day as evidence.
On my Instagram story we had to be so careful not to give anything away! Her sister (who’s wedding we are doing later this year) messaged me after Lauren posted her images to tell the world then realised what my story had been hiding.
Congratulations Lauren and Mark
