A beaming couple may have snapped the best selfie ever when they got their phone out after saying ‘I do’ to capture a once in a lifetime photograph.
Jaimi Lea Stephens and Scott Law are not the biggest fans of selifes - let alone photographs - so when wife-to-be Jaimi decided to make the new selfie craze a part of their special day she had to persuade Scott it was a good idea.
Bride Jaimi, said: “It was just the night before the wedding and my husband and I were talking about the photographs.
“He hates selfies and photographs so I thought he would say no to my idea of taking a wedding selfie with all the guests, but he liked it.”
The pair married on August 9 at St Peter’s Church, Sowerby Bridge, and held the reception at the Old White Beare, Norwood Green, in the presence of their family, friends and two daughters - Elsie and Eadie.
“After the marriage and blessing, I just said ‘shall we do it?’ and we just asked everyone to hang on while we took a photograph,” added Jaimi.
“It is something we will remember. It was brilliant.”
The couple are not a massive fan of the selfie trend but with two-year-old Elsie and nine-month-old Eadie around, they have had to succumb to the popular idea.
“Elsie takes selfies all the time, so that is why it is such a big thing for us to do at our wedding,” said Jaimi.
Jaimi and Scott had previously planned to hold their reception at a venue where a planned extension was not finished in time. They then had a mad dash to find a wedding reception venue at the last minute but say all the stress paid off.
“Guests were coming up to us at the end of the night saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to,” Jaimi said.
