Flere & Carl

I had photographed Flere & Carl for their engagement book seemingly a long time ago and was looking forward to their wedding.

There was a packed house with Flere getting ready at mum's, the mood was calm and relaxed.

Katie, who supplied the dress, was on hand to lace it up quickly and neatly.

There wasn't far to go to the Vale Church, where Carl appeared to cut a lonely figure, but his groomsmen were not far behind.

Mum proudly walked Flere up the aisle.  Dad unfortunately was too ill to attend and we visited him in hospital after the ceremony.

After the ceremony, we took advantage of the lovely autumn weather for a few pictures on the way to the Farmhouse Hotel for the reception, via the hospital to say Hi to dad.

Speeches tugged at the emotions and were also hilarious at times.  Maybe some of what the bestman said wasn't too appropriate, as people were about to be served their meal!
There was time for a couple of pictures outside before the first dance.

Now I had some inkling about how the evening would go from the bestman's speech, true to expectations the rest of the evening became rather wild.  Numerous "Carl sandwiches" were performed and a few of those pictures are best left for the password protected gallery!  A great end to a fabulous day.
