Well I am officially a mother in law and couldn't wish for a better son in law.
The wedding was beautiful at The Barnyard, Upchurch. It was a twilight
one and the setting for it was lovely. I gave my big baby girl away. Thank you to my georgeous nephew in law, Ed, who played PERFECT by Ed Sheeran as a violin solo as we walked up the aisle.
My little baby girl and boy were lovely as they preceded us. Little baby boy was a wonderful ring bearer and little baby girl a beautiful flower girl.
My daughter's wedding ring was made
from mine which was melted down for her. There was enough left over to put away for an eternity ring to be made.
Kevin, (Lord Large) our friend was the DJ and MC. He has been doing this for many years
and it was an excellent disco made up of requests provided by the bride and groom and his own floor fillers.
Twistina, an international award winner, was the balloon modeller and I don't know who wanted her to
make them the most, the children or adults.
We hired Nick, a caricaturist to draw people, instead of making up an wedding favours. People went away with a memento after he drew them. He was excellent.
The barbecue was lovely which people could eat at their leisure.
I have to thank my beautiful hair stylist Mandy, Prospect Hair Design, who excelled with her wedding hair for my
daughter, granddaughter and myself.
We also had a wonderful make up artist who we didn't know personally, but would recommend her to anyone.
from Durham, Hitchin, Devon, Margate and Reading. My nephew looked lovely in his kilt.
The mini bus company was punctual and reliable, Sittingbourne Cabs.
the photographer Terry Wildman Photography, a personal friend of mine (he was the Grocery Manager with me when I worked at JS), was excellent, not intrusive, organising everybody without being bossy and getting beautiful natural shots. He is also
a dab hand at undoing necklaces, tying ties and any little odd jobs that might be needed while he is there.
There was an all day wedding going on there in the large marquee in the adjoining field. It had
a gate that opened in to our courtyard. They decided to have a punch in our courtyard at the end of the evening. We were all sent back in to our venue before the police riot vans arrived. Due to this, we got a few more songs played, when
we should have finished at 11.30 pm. But you know me, I usually have something dramatic happen and so this was no exception!!😮
