Yesterday, was the first Wedding since last Autumn where I didn’t have to wear a jacket! It wasn’t particularly warm, but the bitterly cold, snowy weather has gone (for now) and it felt a little more appropriate weather for a wedding.
I’m always amazed that whatever the weather, most Brides wear their dresses without covering up, usually leaving arms and shoulders exposed, so it’s the least I can do to be there in my normal shirtsleeves and waistcoat wherever possible, but I do have my limits!
It was time for the marriage of Paula and Steve, and a lovely couple they were. The ceremony was at Glenfield Register Office, Leicester, and then on to the reception back in the Bride’s home village of Newbold Vernon.
After chatting to them during the day, they weren’t initially going to have hired transport as the wedding was low key for family and a few friends, but the Groom Steve, saw one of our adverts on Facebook and decided that he wanted Betty as she fitted in with the relaxed style of their day. Also she could carry the four people who needed to be taken to the ceremony venue quite easily, especially as the Mother of the Bride has limited mobility and Betty is well equipped to deal with this, having either a step or a ramp for access, and plenty of grab handles inside the cab.
So, we arrived at the Bride’s house in Newbold Vernon, early as usual, and when everyone was ready, we got the Bride, her parents, and her Sister who was her chief Bridesmaid, aboard and off we set. We got to the Register Office just a couple of minutes early, and waited briefly for the Groom to disappear from doing his official bit, and we then got the Bridal party inside.
It wasn’t long before they were back outside as a newly married couple, and plenty of photos were taken before the Bride and Groom were ready to be taken on to The Swan Inn for their reception.
That was the end of our input for the day, but after a meal they were going to have a karaoke evening and were ready to really enjoy themselves.
We thoroughly enjoyed playing a part in their special day, and we wish them the very best for their future together!
