On Friday we travelled to East Wellow to join Stuart and Sophie for their wedding day. We met with Stuart and Sophie a long while ago when they had decided to get married in the Tythe Barn in petersfield, Fast forward to a few months ago and they decided to change the venue to St Margarets Church in Wellow which is the resting place of Florence Nightingale and then a Marquee in Sophie’s parents house. I must admit that when we met with Stephen and Siriol (Sophie’s parents) at their beautiful house which Stephen had designed I had my doubts that it would be ready for the wedding, I am pleased to say they were unfounded and the house and gardens looked amazing and made for a truly stunning wedding venue.
We arrived at the house in what was fairly decent weather but it soon deteriorated into a steady rainy wet day but that did not dampen the mood at all, Sophie smiled from our arrival at 11am and was still smiling when we left at 9:30, Stuart just laughed and joked all day long and between them they created just the most special atmosphere which everybody enjoyed.
We often have to put up with wet or damp weather but seldom do we have a day like Friday, Everybody was just fantastic and it definitely did not matter what the weather did.
After a wonderful ceremony we all made our way back to the marquee for champagne and nibbles before a few photos then the wonderful wedding breakfast followed by some very humorous and moving (nice one Stu) speeches and then some dancing, We then were treated to an amazing Hog Roast which was my personal favorite so far and I am trying to find the details and will post here later.
The day was made all the more brighter thanks to Isobel their wonderful flower girl and daughter.
All in all it was a wonderful day surrounded by wonderful caring people.
