It was a lovely setting, with beautiful grounds, and the weather just about held out.
The service and reception were in adjoining rooms of the lovely ground floor space. Following dinner, the speeches were made, with Nick and his Best Men brothers, Andy & Chris, talking superbly.
Chris & Andy do their worst
Nick in particular gave a speech full of warmth and in particular, courage, describing his late mother & father and how he wished they could have been there. The room was weeping for him, Chris and Andy and it underlined their incredible spirit, strength and reminded me of the incredible respect I have for them all. The mood remained upbeat, however, and soon the tables were removed and the DJ and dancing started.
First dance, (Queen, You're My Best Friend)
There was even time for bacon and sausage sarnies later on! A fantastic afternoon and evening and a joy to see such a happy bride and groom. Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Weir!
