Family & Friends

After the family had all feasted on their six course meal we rolled ourselves outside to have photos taken before starting the dancing. We'd arranged for hog roast buffet to be served for the evening guests and i'm told it was very very good but personally, I couldn't eat another morsel after the formal dinner! The sun was causing some problems for our photographer but every time a cloud came over we all smiled and got the photos taken. These are a mixture of family and friend shots...

Our reception pt.1 (the feasting part!)

The country club we held our reception at was so beautiful and the staff were brilliant. The maitre d' organised his staff and our guests in such a low-key professional way that we didn't really notice anything going wrong. We kept the first part of the reception for just family and friends joined for the second part. The dining room was gorgeous and the food was so great I think I ate a little too much for a corseted bride!
