Claire & James

Few brides can be as excited to get into their wedding dress as Claire was, she was so excited and absolutely loved the dress.

 Both Claire and James got ready at the Bella Luce Hotel, being careful to avoid seeing each other in the morning.
 The ceremony took place at St. Saviours Church, James was in a jovial mood, but only he knows what was going through his mind as Claire walked up the aisle.

 Reverend Charmley conducted a touching ceremony.

 We were greeted by a strong wind outside the church, the veil didn't stay put for long!

 Then it was back to the Bella Luce for the reception.  The marquee can only be described as exquisite, both inside and outside.
 The red carpet and avenue of shrubbery made a grand entrance.

 We had worked together on a stunning guest book for the couple in the months before the wedding, this proved a great talking point as guests signed or left messages for Claire and James.

 Speeches were before the meal and were just right, short and entertaining.

 Everyone moved into the hotel for the dancing.  The band had flown in from Manchester and were brilliant, keeping the dance floor packed all night.

I just had to share this picture too, taken earlier in the evening, making use of the marquee, the arches and the beautiful sky and moon.
