These sisters thanked their parents for paying for their weddings days in the sweetest way

These sisters thanked their parents for paying for their weddings days in the sweetest way


Written by Katie Byrne


The five siblings organised a very special photoshoot...

 

Lindsay, Becky, Kelly, Cassie and Jamie decided to take part in a surprise photoshoot to thank their mum and dad, who forked out for the full costs of each of their daughters celebrations. 

The idea was the brainchild of Cassie, who suggsted the idea to Rachel Blackwell, the photographer who captured her own wedding in June 2014.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Rachel said: "She pitched me the idea about six months before Jamie's wedding, and we put the shoot on the calendar for one week after, like the day after she came home from her honeymoon".

As the shoot would involve all five sisters donning their wedding dresses, it was decided it should happen ASAP, before any of the sisters fell pregnant. (Coincidentally, four of the five sisters went on to become pregnant in the months after their wedding days.)

It was decided that the shoot would involve the five sisters getting ready together as they did on their wedding mornings; "They all helped zip each other up and were talking about their own wedding days. They were having all kinds of fun, while the husbands hung out at the house they got ready at and watched all the children", explained Rachel.

Each sister also brought with her a framed photo from her wedding day...

...And they decided to recreate the iconic sofa scene from Friends...

...As well as hop-aboard a vintage-esque blue truck...

...They also visited Starbucks - hello, ring-flashing opportunity!

Unsurprisingly, the gorgeous photos were a big hit with the quintet of brides' parents, with their mother ordering several blown-up prints for her home.

Speaking to Buzzfeed Life about the inspiration for the shoot, Cassie said: "[we intented for it to be] a small and fun way to thank our parents for supporting us and our marriages over the years".

We love!
