A Joyous Wedding!
On Friday the rain lashed down all day. The helicopter that was booked to bring the bride and bridesmaids to the wedding barn had to be cancelled and umbrellas were essential. But did the bride and groom care? Not a bit. This was their day and they laughed and loved every second of it.
They had designed their wedding their way. The help yourself pick and mix jars of old fashioned sweets; the wedding souvenir stickers; the photo booth with fancy dress costumes; the Willy Wonka style wedding cake; and the hilarious dance the bride choreographed for her Dad who can normally never be persuaded onto the dance floor!
The father of the brides speech was the funniest I have ever heard. Everyone had a great time. Inside the beautiful high raftered old barn where the wedding ceremony took place and afterwards in the large marquee the atmosphere was joyous. We chatted, we danced, we loved watching the couple enjoying the happiest day of their lives.
