In this black and white image, the groom waits in anticipation as the bride approaches the doorway to the ceremony with her father.
Ali and Andy along with 20 of their closest family members and friends decided to have their small wedding at the Escot House, a large, historic, picturesque home in Devon, England. The venue, also boasting beautiful grounds, was the perfect setting for their wedding day, as the weather was particularly nice for the occasion. English tea and scones were served before the wedding, and after the ceremony, they held a reception with drinks on the lawn outside. Later that evening, they moved to The Pig in Combe to have a meal.
As the ceremony begins and the guests watch from their seats, the bride smiles as she stands between her father and the groom in front of the officiant.
The guests smile in the background and the bride smiles and laughs as the groom puts her ring on her finger during the ceremony.
At the end of the ceremony, the bride and groom share a hug while guests applaud their union behind them in the stately room.
