Chris and Jessica - 25th July 2008
Yet another wedding with a strong foreign contingent. This time it was the Sweeds & the Dutch... making for a very good day, or was that just the schnapz?
Chris & Jessica had arranged a superb wedding with some lovely details such as the wedding booklets with info about all the guests (nice idea, although I'm led to believe it wasn't their own, in fact it was taken from another wedding they'd been to!)
It was pretty toastie so the speeches were a mixture of outdoors & during the meal which I personally think worked really well. Some very touching moments especially from Ulf who produced a poem written by their grandparents that had never previously been read.
Here's my short take on the main part of the day, as I didn't stay too late, but hopefully captured most of the spirit of the day.
This is a sweet pic of father of the bride and his daughter taken before we headed off to Cripps Barn.
Simple - say's it all.
Cripps Barn has great light for the ceremony. Better still I was allowed to take photos during it! Wahoo.
This is one of my all time favourite photos and on my office wall as a 12"x16" framed print - lovely.
Neat idea. In the grounds of Cripps Barn the couple had these info booklets tied up.
Speeches were done outside at the barn. I think this is a great idea.
If you can't drink, this wasn't the wedding for you!
....this bridesmaid wasn't too sure on the shots!
A few more speeches inside Cripps barn during the wedding breakfast.
Cool cake huh? Better still it was cut with that sword - no messing around, one big swoosh and off with the top - love it!
