WEDDING / WEDDING / WEDDING !
Saturday the 4th June was the Wedding day for Bertie Watson (our nephew) and Rachel Pembroke at The Mill. On Friday the weather was perfect for the huge set up ahead, we had a house load of friends and family all arriving in the evening. They were all very helpful on Saturday setting final things up. On Saturday the weather was cold but the sun came out in the afternoon for the 3:30 wedding service. It was such a relaxed day with everyone walking up to the Mill pond, chatting to one another and then sitting down to a view of the oak wood above and an Elm sign with ‘Because He first loved us’ 1 John 4 v 19 . Bertie and Rachel, insisted they wanted to get married outside, and what a great idea.
Finally, Rachel arrived with her father and bridesmaid. She looked amazing and the view behind her was pretty stunning too. The minster and B & R’s friends who were from their Edinburgh Church led the service & worship which was fantastic with Cello and all. A great service and very traditional and God filled. It was idyllic and a treat to watch the swallows dipping and diving through the service.
After we all walked down to The Mill to have tea and coffee and shortbread whilst photos were being taken of family and all. Dinner was cooked by Suki and Brian who cooked an incredible meal for 90 people & Ben Douglas with the pig roast and all the tables had a picture of the happy couple where they had met and done various events they had met, with Gypsophila (Baby’s Breath) , roses of pink and baby pink everywhere. Twinkly lights at night and the famous LOVE sign, photo in the another blog…..
Love was in the air……………….. Here is a picture of Mr and Mrs Watson
