When Cameron Alford and Laura Schram first kissed as husband and wife they could not help but beam with joy. The couple has been through a life-changing couple of years, with Laura diagnosed with cancer during her third pregnancy in 2016. Children Jasper, Ivy and Alfie held the wedding rings in their hands for a few moments and handed them to their parents to exchange. “We wanted everyone special in our lives there to celebrate and who more special than our three babies,” says Laura. “The second I saw Laura all I could think was how lucky we both were to be here,” Cam says. “It was the happiest I’ve been and the best day to top off such a stressful few years. She looked so beautiful and just beamed light.”

Laura and Cameron went to the same high school but didn’t cross paths until they spotted each other at a sporting club event. The pair has built a beautiful life together with their three children. “I fell in love with Cam because he was a genuine guy and his smile lit up the room,” says Laura. “But now that we have children the thing I love most about him is how good he is at being a dad.” Cam adds: “I fell in love with Laura because she is a beautiful and strong woman who is always fun to be around.” He proposed to his love on a spring day in Central Park in New York. “It was perfect,” Laura says of their engagement.
