The Wedding






After 18 months of planning, Sarah and Mikey's big arrived on a lovely dry 6th of August. It was an early start for the bride and her entourage with Bruce, the hairdresser, arriving at 8.30am to begin the preparation.


The final touches


Followed by Debbie, make up and Susan, photographer. Although the house was full of people everything went smoothly and we were all ready by 12.45pm.


Ready, just to put on the dresses


Just about ready to go


Groom, Best Man and Ushers arriving at church


Sarah, true to her word, wasn't late in arriving at the church, if anything a few minutes early. Sarah and her dad, were standing ready to walk down the aisle and Stephen, the minister, said 'sorry, it's only 1.28pm and you'll have to wait till 1.30pm'.


You're early!!!!!


Here Comes The Bride


I was very good and managed not to shed a tear as I watched her coming down the aisle on her dad's arm, something I haven't managed yet when I watch the video of the day. Even in the largish church that we were in, surrounded by over a 100 family and friends the wedding service felt very intimate and personal.


Once the formal part of the day was done, we headed off to the Community Park in Strichen - the village where Sarah and Mikey have set up home - for some photos.

Once that was over it was over to the hotel, for the reception. I have to say that the hotel staff couldn't have been any more professional and helpful. Everything was spot on. Although we were running slightly late before the meal began, by the time it was finished we were back on schedule without feeling that we had been rushed through the meal.


Thanks for popping by.
