Charlotte & Mark

New Year's Eve is always one of those memorable days.  Getting married then is one way of making it even more memorable, and giving an easier date to remember those future anniversaries!

Charlotte got ready at La Fregate Hotel, where the reception was going to be held too.

 The wedding dress had a stunning back.

 Another distinctive element was the bride's bouquet, an intricate and amazingly detailed arrangement that apparently took the best part of a year to make!
 Mark and his groomsmen got ready a short walk from the church and were soon into the swing of things.

 It was a dry day, but bitterly cold and windy.  The bridesmaids and attendants hid away in their car until they had to come out.  At least the page boy had a steamed up window to draw on.

 St. Stephen's Church has a very grand interior.

 After the ceremony we went for a brief visit to the cliffs above Petit Port, an area with lots of meaning for Charlotte & Mark.  The low winter light was attractive, an advantage of weddings at this time of the year, but the chill and brisk wind meant we didn't spend much time there before retreating back to the hotel.
 Clearly a lot of effort had gone into the beautiful decor and accessories. 

 An hour had been set aside for the speeches, this worked out perfectly and proved great entertainment.

 The first dance was a lovely moment, with the couple soon joined by others on the dance floor.  Much spirited activity followed.

 A projector showed the countdown to the New Year live from London, there was a wonderful atmosphere as 2015 was cheered in.  We finished off with a bit of fun as the guests formed a tunnel of sparklers for the couple outside.
