It had been a few years since I last saw my cousins and their families. It was also a lovely surprise to meet up with some of my second cousins who I had either never met before or for those I had met, over 20 years had passed! Shocking how time flies! I am afraid I am really showing my age now! No matter how I may try to hide from it, time follows me around relentlessly.
This wedding was held locally in a gorgeous country church called St Edmunds. The church itself is a listed building and the nave dates back many centuries.
As weddings often are, this one was another fabulous and fun family reunion!
The wedding reception was intimate and traditional. It was held just a few minutes down the road at the Bride’s parents house. Their garden was magnificent and provided the perfect back drop for the celebrations.
I simply adored the baby pink theme, the bridesmaids and flower girls were very elegant and the stationery all co-or donated beautifully. I wasn’t the only one to notice that the Order of Service given to us at church had the white lace and pink ribbon sash with a pearl in the centre of a bow. This matched the invitation we were given along with the table number, our name card, and our wedding favours. The flowers, inside the church, inside the marquee, and outside in the garden were exsquisite!
The food was brilliant too! We were certainly spoilt! While we ate we had a wedding pianist playing softly in the background the romantic ballads. Many of which I have in my own repertoire. Although I do also play the piano at weddings and other functions, it was a lovely treat to simply relax and enjoy!
As the night drew on the band arrived and we danced the night away. We were supposed to leave at 10pm but we had too much fun that we didn’t leave until it was past 12.30am!
I like to take photos not only to show family members who couldn’t make it but also for myself. Looking back at photos brings back some marvellous memories. And looking at that berry dessert makes my mouth water, even now! The head chef was fabulous and we thoroughly savoured his cuisine! As if that beautiful meal was not enough, a few hours later we were again treated to coffee and a night time BBQ with salad. I am usually fussy with hamburgers and won’t order one as it cannot compare to our own homemade burgers. But on recalling the exsquisite appetisers and full course meal and dessert, I knew at once that these hamburgers, being orchestrated by this chef would be one a kind. And the were. The hamburgers were fantastic, a gorgeous texture and brilliant mixture of ingredients. Most definitely I treasured every mouthful.
