We know Earls Barton well – not just through weddings: cracking chippy, we just ask for “the usual” now – so it was with great pleasure we returned to the Saxon church for the wedding of Zoe and John.
The weather was set fair and nothing was left to chance, not even the batting order for the shower [i hope you’ve included reading this blog post on today’s colour-coded spreadsheet].
The wedding party included a rather special new addition [coo-ing wasn’t on the schedule].
Onwards to the spectacular Rushton Hall.
Not everyone could relax: there were speeches to be prepped…. and itchy ring syndrome to be sated.
John’s speech was statesman-like, a cracker…
..although there were moments when i thought he had lost the audience.
We had two speeches from the best men; neither one of the happy couple were immune from the rapier wit on show 🙂
The wedding cake was surrounded by photos from the past weddings of loved ones.
A few relaxing moments in the evening sun and then onwards to the party.
The barometer predicted a ‘fair’ day. Fair to say it exceeded expectations.
