I’ve missed a good Church Wedding of late, they really are something special. Enter the magnificent St.Peter Mancroft in all it’s glory as the setting for the adorable Serena and Henry. THE most relaxed, gentle, polite and all round awesome human beings one could wish to work for.
So relaxed in fact, Serena was collecting flowers from a relatives garden the day before – now that is special, and so sentimental. Love it Serena, bravo.
I lingered around the Church capturing Guests arriving wondering where my Groom had got to, time was ticking and there was no sign of the Groom and his fellow Groomsmen,luckily Henry arrived in the nick of time along with the chaps ties and we were good to go. Imagine my shock as I spin around to hear horses hooves behind me…and see our beautiful Bride beaming at us. “Henry get in the Church” I yell as the boys headed in. Yikes!
Thank the heavens they didn’t spot each other, I’m super twitchy about these things 🙂
The Rev Edward Carter led a sincere and moving Ceremony, many thanks to him for being so lovely about capturing the day. The Choir were expertly conducted by Rob Goodrich and sung their hearts out. We were also treated to a beautiful duet by Guests Maisie Hook & Megan Hogg.
When you look through the blog you’ll see an image where the Church was bathed in epic light as Serena and Henry made their vows, if that isn’t a good omen I don’t know what is. More lavender scented confetti throws please future couples 🙂 a real treat for the senses. Now, to the highlight of the day. Sernena’s Mum had arranged for a horse drawn carriage as a gift to the Couple. Imagine my surprise when it dawned on me we had a little run to complete around the City. Note to self – pack trainers next time! It was superb to see the extraordinary collide with the ordinary as we jogged along with well wishers shouting their congratulations at the newlyweds.
A little night stroll saw some cracking opportunities around the City, and a trip into a favourite haunt for these two., and a rather happy first dance too.
Guys, thank you for a lovely, lovely day. As ever it never feels like work to me, and quite simply it’s the best job in the world. May you always be this happy.
