Life Sentence

The Hotel du Vin in Tunbridge Wells was the backdrop for the wedding of Sarah Goom and Nic Wayne on Saturday.

Sarah wore a beautiful white dress from Blue Bridalwear and custom made shoes from Emmy Scarterfield.

The outfit was finished off with a tiara from Basia Zarzycka. Basia’s web site is well worth a visit and if you find yourself at the Sloane Square end of the Kings Road with half an hour to spare you should really visit her shop which is a fabulously eccentric bazaar!

Quite fittingly, as the couple are both barristers, the tables were all named after prisons! Each table had a display of peonies which echoed the bride’s bouquet.

They are now off to California for 3 weeks to visit Alcatraz and San Quentin (just kidding!).

Liz & Kris

Liz and Kris chose to marry in the grand surroundings of St Mary and All Saints Church in Beaconsfield which, according to it's web site "is one of the finest Churches in the Chilterns".
As you can see from the photographs we captured, the sun shone for most of the day.

The couple chose to hold their reception just a couple of miles away at the Beaconsfield Golf Club where Liz's Father Phil is a member and Liz herself played when she was young.

The old clubhouse was a perfect backdrop when, after the wedding breakfast, the couple and their guests wandered outside in the early evening light.

Mr & Mrs Taylor are off to Mexico on Tuesday for a two week honeymoon.

Blowing your own trumpet

On Saturday I was at the wedding of Chris Taggart and Sarah Cousins. Although we were expecting the first rain for a couple of weeks the weather held and towards the end of the afternoon we were pleasantly surprised to see some sunshine.

The wedding took place at The Hop Farm in Kent and as Sarah and her father entered the room and walked up the aisle we enjoyed a live rendition of the “Trumpet Voluntary”.

Nothing particularly unusual in that, you might say, except that the trumpet was being played by Chris who obviously felt that he didn’t have enough to worry about!

The musical theme continued during the signing of the register as the Best Man, Anirban, and his wife Annalise sang Mozart’s “Bei Mannern, welche Liebe Fuhlen” from the Magic Flute supported by a string quartet.

Sarah and Chris’ first dance was to the Richard Rogers classic “I Could Write a Book”.

Sannah and Dermott

Last Friday Sannah and Dermott married at the very pretty Church of Our Lady & St Joseph in Stock,Essex.
Over 100 guests squeezed into the small church to witness the ceremony.

During the Holy Communion Tenor David Newman sang Panis Angelicus accompanied by Angela Moore on the Harp. The pair also performed Ave Maria whilst the Bride and Groom signed the register.

The couple left the church in a vintage cream coloured Rolls Royce.

The wedding reception was held at Braxted Park, a Georgian Mansion with beautiful grounds and a walled garden.
