This Sunday is Mother’s Day.
Well, in the UK and Ireland anyway – sorry if we scared any of our US readers there!
We’re feeling the love for the incredible women in our lives, so, we thought we’d celebrate with an ode to mothers of brides and grooms everywhere.

See these two beaties above, this is my sister at her wedding last year with our mam – haven’t I got good genes?!
Whether they’re running around fussing, or standing in the corner tearing up, mums play a very special role in your wedding, from moral support and practical advice, to fixing your bow tie and telling you, you look breath-taking.
So to thank our marvellous moms for being, well, marvellous, we present 50 beautiful, poignant, tear-jerking, Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom moments…there’s few special grandmothers in there too.
There’s some great photos ideas in there for your own wedding as well as fab outfit inspiration for glamorous mums.
So Pin It buttons, and tissues at the ready…

I think I need to go call my mum after that. Did anyone else well up, or was that just me?
So many special moments, caught perfectly by some talented photographers.
Whether it’s a beautiful candid shot, or a stunning portrait, make sure you chat to your photographer about the special people in your wedding, that you want your picture taken with. All too often the day whizzes by and you realise you never got a picture with somebody important.
So if you’re a mum-to-be bride or a mother of the bride, Happy Mothers’ Day, one and all!
Have you any special wedding day stories about your mum, you’d like to share?
For more tear-jerking motherly wisdom, watch this beautiful Mother of the Bride Speech + get inspiration for the perfect Mother/Son Dance Songs for your Wedding.
