It was brilliant, it was agreed by almost everyone there the best wedding ever!
There was so much that could have gone wrong on the day...but thankfully it didn't, the marquee company delivered the wrong size of marquee and got very stroppy when my Brother-in-law to be complained, the guy who was renting the field to them for the marquee changed his mind at the very last minute...but my sister Jody talked him around and no one could light the gas for the hog roast...they managed eventually and it was delicious!
Ruby looked beautiful, the bridesmaids all looked lovely,Daz, the groomsmen and my brother (who was giving Ruby away) all looked impeccably groomed and handsome ...infact everyone looked brilliant, I was so proud of my girls, Scott my lovely fiancee, my Mum and all my sisters.
The service was lovely...some of the littlest children added a few sound effects but it only added to the family feel of the event.
We carried on to the local village hall for afternoon tea, the theme was vintage/shabby chic, all mis-matched china tea cups and saucers! The food was yummy and served with tea, champagne or Pimm's or in some cases all three!!
We continued in the evening in a huge marquee with a dance floor, lots of wine, beer and more champagne and the delish hog roast.
Evie managed to rip holes all over the front of her pretty bridesmaids dress and lose the flower decoration from the front of it...I was told it happened during some serious wrestling with her cousin Daniel!
As always at our family gatherings we had the traditional very loud sing-a-long to 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
I gave up and went home at about 1.30am...leaving my two eldest daughters there, Kia was sat chatting to people, Mica was in a group that included my brother who were taking it in turns to climb into the chest freezer that had been used to keep the drinks cool!
Anyways I'll leave you with a selection of photos from the day...

On a slightly different note now, my giveaway should have ended yesterday but as I've been so incredibly busy with wedding-y stuff I've not really got myself organised for it so I'm keeping it open until midnight sunday 15th August and I'll draw it on Monday 16th.
Friendship Giveaway. Clicky for more details and sign up if you haven't already.
Thats all for now.
