Sophie & Peter

My last wedding of 2012 was for Sophie & Peter.  A lovely event on another wet and windy day.

Sophie looked wonderful, her dress had quite amazing lacework.

As the car waited in the torrential rain Peter and his groomsmen were already in the church.

Somehow the rain stopped when Sophie arrived at the church, so she could walk to the door saving the chauffeur an awkward and long reverse.
Reverend Northover's ceremonies are always filled with good humour.
This was a sweet little moment as a proud dad gave his daughter's hand a squeeze.
No time to hang around, as it was raining again, so straight onto the Bella Luce Hotel for the reception.

The warm interior of the hotel was perfect for the day.  Clearly great attention had being taken with the room set up.  Each table was named after a book, the top table was "The Wedding".

There was plenty of time for people to chat and have a glass of champagne, before settling down for the speeches and meal.

The cake was carried onto the dance floor.  Also the DJs, Q-Sky, had spent a long time setting up various lights which flooded the room with colour.

The dancing began and lasted 5 hours!  A young and energetic crowd took full advantage.  The bouquet came out of the toss rather worse for wear after a little tussle.

 The couple were pulled into a circle of their friends for their last dance, a fitting end to an informal and wonderful day.
As I left, a sign at reception invited people to join the couple for breakfast at 9am.  I wondered how many people would be there on time!
