The Wedding Part 2

Once again many thanks for your thoughts and well wishes over the weekend.  It was heart warming to know so many people were thinking about us.  As I have said in my previous post the professional photos will not be available until the newly weds are back from their honeymoon.  However, I have managed to get some photos together from family.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

The flowers were a big hit both at church and at the reception, I felt quite proud of them.  I have a wonderful daughter who has a wonderful eye for balance so made it easier getting the flowers all the same length.

I was particularly impressed with the bike and milk churns at the front of the reception venue, they really made a statement and indeed served their purpose welcoming people to the gathering.
The seating plan in the vintage suitcase and card holder looked amazing.  The guest book was a tree, each person left a finger print to make a leaf, a real statement piece and something that will be a piece of art afterwards.
The cake was also a work of art and looked wonderful on the tree trunk her father had polished up for them,  It certainly went down well, as did the wooden coasters.
The wedding car was a vintage VW and really caused a stir with everyone looking at us as we drove through the town to church.
Even the speeches were heart warming and entertaining.  All in all, a really good day and well worth all the hard work so many people, to many to mention put into it.  My husband and I are going to get our little one bathed and enjoy a couple of hours together with our feet up.
See you soon.
