Charlotte and David's dramatic Sheffield wedding took place at the Crucible theatre, but there wasn't a snooker cue in sight. The audience took their seats in the stalls to watch the action unfold on the stage and when I say the bride's entrance was a spectacular one, I'm not kidding! Framed in a halo of light as she made her way down the steps, it was a wonderful moment!
The beautifully moving and musical ceremony was conducted under the spotlights and included songs sung by a choir made up of David's very own talented family members. Piano accompaniment was provided. It was an original and memorable exchange of vows, filled with a lot of laughter and love.
After the ceremony was over and the happy couple had had a swift glass of bubbly in the auditorium, we made the most of the theatre set up by taking a few couple shots. More photos were taken at the fairytale setting of the Lyceum theatre next door, as who can resist the opportunity to sit at such a grand royal box?
Before we knew it, it was time get some fresh air, soak up the sunshine and relax with some giant Jenga in the fields outside the Norfolk Arms, where the reception was being held. The large marquee was decorated exquisitely, with the penguin books theme working perfectly. The cake was exceptional!
It was a near perfect wedding and I would like to wish Charlotte and David all the very best in their married life. I'm certain they'll be very happy.
