A surprisingly sentimental moment came when Vanessa’s mother bestowed her loving speech upon her daughter. The bride explains, “My Mother and I have always been extremely close, and she has always been there to offer me help, constant love and support. To hear her praise me for the way I am and have grown as an adult was so special. Her words were amazing, moved me to tears and it made me feel really proud.”
