We wanted to have a real 'friends and family' feel to the event - and in the days preceding the Big Day we were snowed under with helpers, advisers, visitors, supper and overnight guests. We had SUCH fun and it was exactly the leadup to the day we were hoping for.
A typical helper's supper the night before;
The decorations were wonderful, and the barn looked amazing;
My mother Karen was responsible for all the flowers - these huge hanging balls in the barn were spectacular.
And then the deed was done - it went so quickly! Monty was even allowed to take part - he and I wore matching bow ties...
Our wedding car was a wonderful Series 1 Land Rover, which had been kept a complete surprise from both Kristy and I. It was the most fitting vehicle possible, and really made the day.
We had a load of wonderful photos taken - this is our favorite;
Before it was back to our home for the most amazing garden party / wedding reception EVER!
...and what would be a more fitting start to married life than a cup of tea with my wonderful Grandmother!
The Barn was full to bursting with friends and family for our wedding supper;
What they say is quite true - it goes in the blink of an eye! All our wonderful friends and family, loads of amazing things to see and do, wonderful wedding presents, a hog roast - but before we knew, it was 2am and the last of our guests were leaving.
Easily the best day of my life!
