Wedding at home

My Bride and Groom on Saturday were Lisa Potterton and Mike Simpson. The 'ropey' Summer weather didn't interfere too much and we had a fair amount of sunshine.
Lisa prepared at Mike's parent's house in Merstham which was also where they held the wedding reception later in the day; in a large marquee set on one of the terraced lawns.

The wedding ceremony was held a few hundred yards away at St Katherine's church where over 120 guests congregated.

Although a lot of the flower arrangements were created by Mike's Mother, Valerie, Lisa's bridal bouquet was made by Nelly Maiklem who is based at nearby Fanny's Farm Shop.

The Bride's dress was also sourced locally, from Amante in Reigate and was finished off with a pair of Champagne coloured Jimmy Choos.

Excellent food was assured as the catering was provided by Bovingdons. The menu included slow roasted fillet of beef and home made Sicilian cheese cake!

After a first dance to Rod Stewart's version of 'Have I told You Lately', the guests danced the night away to the music of the live band.

Lisa and Mike have now gone on a two week honeymoon to the USA.
