....Today we celebrated the marriage of Kev, to Helen. And what a celebration it was - an incredible day.
The service was held at St.Paul's Church, Chipperfield and was a rather grand affair. It also gave me the opportunity to work my vocal chords, singing boldly to hymn after hymn!
Helen & Kevin
The bride & groom then took a horse & carriage to the reception - at Callipers Hall, which in fact, was the estate of Helen's parents. A vast, beautifully appointed house & gardens, that any description I give, wouldn't do it justice.
There, guests gathered in the sun, drinking champagne, strolling the grounds and eating canapes, before being seated in the marquee area.
Once again, a stunning set up of tables named after their holiday spots or previous residencies. We sat on 'Marylebone' underneath the beautiful floral decorations that towered above each table. The food and wine was superb, (click on the menu photo for full details), starting with mixed tapas, then roast fillet of beef and a sorbet for dessert.
The speeches followed which were all very well spoken - particularly Kev, who composed himself really well. Then a side curtain lifted to reveal the band and dance floor, getting the party started in earnest.
And then we danced. And danced. And danced.
A fantastic day, where the the bride & groom looked hugely happy, as did all the guests! Congratulations both.
