So many of you sent good luck wishes for Sarah and Chris's wedding, for which I thank you and you asked me to to put pictures on my blog, you may be sorry as this is more than one or two snaps, we have so many gorgeous pictures, I simply couldn't choose, so this is how the day went.
It started raining just as we were leaving the hotel to head towards Tythe Barn in Bicester where Sarah and Chris were married. I got lost on the way, it was only a 10 minute drive but Tom Tom was just rubbish that day and told me I had reached my destination when in fact he had taken me to an industrial estate!!! With only 10 minutes until the wedding was due to start, I started to panic and then it rained even more. It turned out the venue was just across the other side of the main road......phew....panic over.
Thankfully, the very organised staff at the venue were there armed with brollies to get us into the barn without getting too wet. We took our seats and before I could blink, the music started and Sarah came down the isle holding on firmly to her VERY PROUD Dad.My little grandson Ronnie, who is only four, had spent the whole week getting extremely excited about walking down the aisle we with Sarah, Grandad, his mum (my daughter Kelly), Della and his baby sister Millie who were all bridesmaids. Sadly Ronnie was not at all well on the day, he had a high temperature and felt very tearful too. He did manage to walk down the isle beautifully with Millie, it was the cutest sight I had ever seen and of course I stated blubbing straight away! In fact I think I spent most of the day with a tissue in my hand!!!!
Here's the happy couple just about to sign the register. IT was just after this that Ronnie, even though he wasn't well, shouted at the top of his voice "Sarah.....I love you!" The place just melted with emotion, completely unprompted and his timing was perfect.
Everyone blew bubbles as the happy couple left the barn. That's my son Alex trying to get the camera on his phone to work.
This is one of my favourite pictures that Mark took in the beautiful grounds of the barn.
I am so shocking with photographs, I always close my eyes or pull a funny face, this is about the only picture of me that we have found so far that is printable, but I'm too worried as the picture is with my two girls who both looked stunning.
Second to Sarah, Millie stole the show. She had the best day ever! She ate sausages all day and danced all night. She is only two and she danced until 11pm!!!! IT was all to much for poor Ronnie though, his Dad Jimmy ended up taking him to stay with his other Grandma as all he wanted to do was go to bed and he is still quite poor now.
The happy couple cutting the most amazing wedding cake I have ever tasted, yum, yum!
One of the table decorations, which I am now the proud owner of.......I am thrilled with it, it matches the most beautiful bouquet of flowers that Sarah and Chris gave me.
