Katie & Chris's Real Wedding

Katie and Chris are childhood sweethearts who got together aged 15 on Christmas Day. After 10 years together, they married in an intimate ceremony in Braintree, Essex. After spending months at a time apart due to Chris serving in Iraq, they realised they never wanted to be apart again and became engaged when Chris was back in the UK on leave.

Chris & Katie-The Couple

Katie and Chris had been together for almost 10 years when they married. While Chris was away serving in Iraq, he and Katie exchanged endless letters and being apart was just too much to bear. They discussed getting engaged in their letters and when Chris was on leave and back in the UK, Katie showed him an engagement ring in a shop window. Without a second thought, Chris went in and bought the ring.

Katie and Chris have such a strong bond that was strengthened when they both supported each other through difficult times. When Katie’s brother James passed away after a battle with cancer, Chris supported Katie and her family though the difficult time. When Chris left the army to become a fire fighter, it was a difficult transition that Katie helped him through.

Katie and Chris’s big day took place at The Fennes Estate and their stunning photography was done by Whatimage Photography.
