A Shropshire Wedding

Sarah & Duncan

A few weeks ago I found myself on a farm in Shropshire surrounded by many familiar faces, including Sarah and Duncan! They have been guests at many of my past weddings back home and had fairly recently moved, Essex came to visit them on their wedding day!

Sadly we did not manage to bring the sunshine with us but the rain did not stop play and everything looked beautiful.
There were some lovely touches like how a guest at each table was designated, with a hat, the job of carver or sommelier and the fires lit in the garden warmed us all up after a damp day.

Monstaball  rocked up in the evening and did an amazing job of performing all the favourites but with added edge, the dance floor was heaving the entire night, perfect for this crowd who always know how to party!

It was such an amazing day, was really lovely to catch up with so many of my past (and future) couples, their families and to see Sarah and Duncan marry after seeing them together at the weddings of their friends over the years.
