Happiness, humour and hilarity characterised the wedding of Ralph and Sophie at Oakwood at Ryther in June 2021.

What a greatly-loved and hugely -popular couple Ralph and Sophie are as they celebrated “family” at the very centre of their ceremony.

They are an absolute JOY, teasing each other with their dry quips and humour, each trying to out-do each other with their wit and repartee! You can see by the enjoyment on the faces of their family and friends how much everyone enjoyed sharing this momentous occasion!

Ralph and Sophie’s wedding ceremony was full of symbolic and significant details too, bringing their loved ones into the moment with them. It was a combination of heart-felt heart-ache and hilarity, as we went on an emotional “journey” together sharing both laughter and tears.

Although Ralph had asked for a ceremony that was both “quick and painless”(!!) I think the photo’s capture his delight, pride and unbridled happiness on this, his longed-for wedding day, to his beautiful Sophie.

“They do!”
