In the eyes of any mother, the moment that their son becomes a groom, is one of the proudest moments in your life. This is your son, who you’ve raised to be not only a great man, but a loyal husband and no doubt a father some day too.

The day you walk up the aisle with your family and friends watching on, will be the happiest day of your life. A day that no doubt will have taken months of planning, to ensure that everything is as special as you had imagined it to be.
