Last weekend my friend tied the knot with her partner and what a beautiful day it was.
The wedding itself was held at the Registry Office and the reception was at a local venue called Rowheath Pavillion. I have visited here before a couple of times and it really is a lovely place. The first time we came was to find a geocache by the lake.
The weather was gloriously sunny, I bet there were a few sunburnt guests at the end of the day!
My friend asked me to make the wedding cake which was a real honour, although it sent me into a fit of panic in the days leading up to the wedding and I was so nervous on the day. Of course once I’d arrived at the venue and put the cake together I was able to relax and enjoy the day. Especially after I’d received a few comments and made a very emotional Mother of the Bride cry. (I do believe the tears meant she liked it, well I hope so!)
My friend made her own wedding dress and she looked beautiful. After the vows we went into the courtyard for a while before being whisked off by coach to the reception venue.
When we arrived at Rowheath Pavillion we took advantage of the sunshine and had some fun in the grounds.
The reception meal was vegetarian which I loved, especially the Homity Pie. The room looked lovely with all the decorations and flowers. Then the bride and groom cut the cake, which was an amazing moment for me.
Then we danced the night away.
