Laura & Rob

After 3 years of friendship, Rob and Laura’s inevitability fell madly in love 13 years ago. Sadly the tough decision was made to part ways as Rob’s work and life took them in different directions. They never strayed from each other’s thoughts and remained distance friends always keeping in touch.

By 2010 Laura had naturally fallen in love again and by this point was engaged to Steve and a proud Mum to their beautiful daughter named Olivia who was 14 months old and also happily 12 weeks pregnant with their second child Juliet.

Three days after the 12 week scan Laura was left Bereft when her fiancé Steve passed away suddenly. She felt devastated for herself and her girls. Laura took the few years after to fuel her focus on bringing up her daughters, and working full time to support them. In 2013 Laura had an unexpected surprise. An email from Rob, her first true love, declaring his feelings for her still. The couple fell in love all over again and have never looked back.

Rob & Laura now live on the stunning Isle of Man with their 2 beautiful daughters Olivia and Juliet, never forgetting their Daddy in heaven.

They tied the knot on a perfect sunny day on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea near their home.”We were very lucky with the weather it was perfect and I’m sure we were looked down upon as the butterflies flew around us when we said our vows” Laura explained.

Laura and Rob, your love to each other is magical. You made me feel like the luckiest photographer to document your love and I’m happy to call you friends. I’m honoured to have documented your first day as husband and wife. I am thankful to have been invited into your lives and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both. Much love, Shan x
