We started today’s wedding with meeting the Groom, Bestmen and Ushers at St Mary’s Church, Sturminster Marshall. They arrived early to make sure that everything was in order before the guests started to arrive. The church looked amazing with lots of spring flowers.
Rosie had returned to the village for her wedding and to the church where she as a young girl used to ring the church bells for weddings. Today it was her wedding and her Dad would be helping to ring the bells.
Rosie had planned to walk to church with her parents, sister and bridesmaids providing that the weather was fine and luckily it held out for her to do this. At the church door a few final touches, a deep breath and a few tears of happiness Rosie was ready for the ceremony to start.
The service was personalised with readings and a prayer from some special guests and the hymns were sung enthusiastically by the congregation.
The newly married couple left the church to the ring of church bells and while a few family photos were taken at the church door the guests were served with champagne and homemade cakes.
The reception was held in a marquee in the village within walking distance of the church. After a photo of Rosie and Ben with all their guests they were showered with confetti as they made their entrance into the marquee. The weather had been kind to the newly married couple and just as everyone had gone into the marquee it started to rain.
The wedding breakfast was followed by the speeches and then the traditional cutting of the cake. The couple then took to the dance floor for their first dance. With the formalities over the barn dance started. The caller managed to pack the floor and everyone seemed to be having such a great time.
We wish Rosie and Ben all the very best for their future together and we look forward to seeing them again soon when they return from honeymoon.
