The touching moment former NSW Premier Mike Baird bursts into tears as he sees his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time


In January former New South Wales Premier Mike Baird excitedly announced the engagement of his eldest daughter Laura.

And on Saturday, the thrilled father-of-three was able to walk her down the aisle.

Photographer James Day captured the heartwarming moment an emotional Mr Baird saw Laura in her wedding dress for the first time.

‘I believe that photos can help people celebrate life,’ Mr Day wrote on his Facebook page.


‘I also believe that I sometimes have the opportunity to remind people of the love that exists in their life and the gravity of moments they are about to witness.

 Sometimes we just need to take a moment and realise how incredible life is.

‘Mike was about to see his daughter after she had put her wedding dress on.

‘I asked him if he could close his eyes and face the other way as I said to him “When you turn around you’ll see your daughter dressed as a bride”.

‘Instantly Mike started tearing up and I was fortunate to witness this incredible moment.
