Lucy, who was a jubilant bride and entirely focused on the moment, arrives at the wedding ceremony with a smile on her face. Her young son plays with the train on her wedding dress as her mother looks on in the background, soaking up the scene in front of her.

Sometimes, the only time that you have available is right now. Rich and Lucy decided that the pandemic could not halt their wedding plans. This couple wanted to get married as soon as possible, and with their family by their side. This was particularly important, as Lucy's mother was undergoing chemotherapy at the time, and they wanted her to be included in every aspect of the event. Rather than delaying their wedding or hoping for more ideal circumstances, they decided to celebrate their love with a wedding ceremony at Council House in Nottingham, United Kingdom.
