James and Sophie's rose-themed wedding was a stylish, vintage affair with an emphasis on fun. Pre-ceremony nerves were calmed by a glass of bubbly and then, while the couple's son watched, Sophie walked up the dramatic red-carpeted aisle at St Peter's Church in Headon to meet her groom. Their son's thrilled expression said it all! There was a lot of love in the room and it was clearly a joyful event for everyone involved.
The reception was held at the Old Vicarage in Elkesley. The newly-married husband and wife drove to the venue in a classic Triumph convertible. Talk about arriving in style! On arrival, the children were greeted with the sight of a bouncy castle, the adults were presented with canapés and everybody got to race a rubber duck in the river. More entertainment was provided in the form of giant outdoor games and seaside cut outs. When it was time to eat, the guests made their way across the romantic fairy-lit bridge, over the water, to the marquee.
Inside the beautifully-decorated marquee, there were thoughtful little details everywhere, details which were designed both to inspire the guests creatively and provide everybody with a good time.
After the meal, the guests and wedding party enjoyed the spectacle of some very lively speeches! The crowd were regaled with stories about signed England shirts and horses with jockeys. (The props used for the speeches were scarily authentic!) Energetic dance floor action in front of a live band completed the nuptials of a couple whose careful planning made it a special day for everyone who attended.
