Yesterday we attended the first of three weddings we have in 2018.
Kevin and I made our way to Royston and checked into our hotel to change into our finery!
I took three outfits and two pair of tights, both which ran as soon as I carefully put them on, resulting in a bare legged look and a last minute change of outfit!
Our cab arrived in good time, and we made our way to Minstrel Court.
Setting was delightful and we were led to the meadow chapel. It was a mild day, but overcast. The groom looked very relaxed and the master of ceremonies said ‘pray silence for the bride’
Alfie, their 3 year old son walked in with a pouch, which we later found out held the rings.
Charlotte looked radiant and Colin a very proud Dad indeed!
Readings were read, vows and rings exchanged and the new Mr and Mrs Foley were presented, all beaming smiles and joy.
Buck’s Fizz was quaffed and canapés served, and the obligatory photos taken.
We made our way later to the dining room where we were treated to great food, wine and heartfelt speeches expressing joy and pride. Thank yous aplenty for efforts that culminated in a wonderful celebration
Colin, the father of the bride, and Kevin have been friends since 1972, and Colin was very nervous about making a speech: he needn’t have worried as he hit the right notes of humour, pride and joy.
Dancing and paella followed with a fantastic firework display. Colin’s 93 year old Nan even tripped the light fantastic.
I love weddings with all the love and hope for the future that surrounds the newlyweds and having known Charlotte all her life made it even sweeter.
We wish them every happiness for the future, may they make memories to sustain them safe in the knowledge that they have the love and support of their extended families.
Can’t wait for the next one in July! 💗💗💗👰🥂🥂💗💗💗
