Winter Wedding

On December 9th 2016 MC married RJ and she became another Mrs C just like me! So happy to have another Mrs C in the family, wish Col's mum was still alive she would have been so happy too.

Weddings may be much more complicated to organise than "back in our day" but they are much more fun!
Here are some pictures from the winter wedding (although the weather was unseasonably warm)

Caught this photo of Col and our son, just before we went into church. The Best man W - who has been son's best friend since they were 9 -  is behind and between M and Col and over on the left is Col's brother A - if he had noticed he was being photographed he would probably have taken a step backwards out of shot!
The wedding had a Christmas theme and we sang Ding Dong Merrily on High for the final hymn

Bride and Groom

Our Eldest, her husband and  Jacob


Our wonderful family ( minus Florence who had finally fallen asleep after being so grumpy all through the service  that B had to take her out into the vestry)

A choir entertained everyone with Christmas carols on arrival at the reception venue while M & R went off to Leiston Abbey Ruins for special photos
Extremely yummy Wedding cake which became the desert for the meal, thereby saving M & R the cost of an extra course!
The Proudest Grandad in the world with Jacob and Florence



The two little cousins get to know each other!

The newly weds first dance, wonder if anyone anywhere has danced their first dance to "All I want for Christmas is  you"!



A Good Time was had by all.

Thank you for comments over the last few days, I must get round to replying properly.

Back Soon

  6. All those seasonal fairy lights at the reception are beautiful. What a wonderful day. Love the wedding cake. My daughter had a faux wedding cake and served the real one for dessert to.

  11. The pictures are so lovely. I'm glad it was a mild day and not lots of snow and cold for the couple's big day. That's a great picture of Col and the two babies. They're adorable.

  17. Thank you for sharing so many beautiful photos of the wedding - they are all good. Amazing to see such a beautiful church with pots of pansies in bloom and none of you wearing coats and gloves.

    May the young couple be blessed and enjoy a long life together.

  20. aw, what beautiful photos. And you looked superb, lady! I am utterly biased, but I think you can't beat a December wedding. Fairy lights and Christmas trees, it just adds to the magic.

  31. What wonderful photos - joyous. And a winter/December wedding - as someone who got married just a few days before Christmas - I think it is the best time of the year to get married too!

  32. Congratulations to the Bride and Groom! I hope they have a wonderful, long and happy marriage and that this lovely day bought some brightness and cheer to you and Col too!

  33. Congratulations to the bride and groom. What lovely photos, it certainly looks like a wonderful day. I think the best photos are often when people don't know they're being photographed. The idea of having the wedding cake as dessert is brilliant. They cost so much money these days that they should be eaten and enjoyed. xx
