Wow. Where to even start with this beautiful wedding? We have a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to come. Scones “Cornwall style” and some of the most beautiful flowers you’re going to see.
So I’ll keep (fairly) quiet and just show you the pictures. Quite a lot of pictures actually.
First of all, here’s Gemma getting ready.
She has everything a girl could need on her wedding day. Shoes, handbag, champagne, oh and a Bridezilla Voodoo doll, obviously.
Along with a beautiful flower girl.
But it was only when the flowers arrived that the tears started. You can easily see why.
And then it was time for Gemma to put her dress on. And for her bridesmaids to gasp.
Over at the church, the guys were getting ready too.
And with friends playing the guitar and singing we knew it was going to be a beautiful ceremony.
And then, almost before you knew it, Gemma and Raymond got married.
And after the ceremony, Gracie did extra duties as the bell ringer.
As the very new Mr and Mrs White tried to get away without being pelted with confetti. No chance.
And then we were off to the village hall for a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
Where there were LOTS and lots of cakes and sugary things.
And ponies, obviously.
Now, there’s always a certain matter of debate about cream teas. Do you put the jam on the scone first as I was taught as a child? Or do you put the cream on first and then the jam? Gemma kindly offered to show me the “proper Cornish” way. Which as one guest noted “really just means you put as much cream on as you can”. Yummy.
Of course, no wedding reception is complete without speeches.
And the easiest ever game of “Where’s Wally”….
In fact, the while wedding reception was simply beautiful. A wonderful fusion of Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and village hall style.
With, would you believe it, more cake.
It had been just ever so slightly damp during the day, so after the wedding breakfast we nipped outside for a few more group pictures.
First the girls.
And the guys. Which made Ray pretty happy.
And the bride and groom.
All too soon it was time for the first dance, and one last picture.
