Yesterday saw the very happy wedding day of Scott and Nicola at Underwood, followed by celebrations at Horsley Lodge. I started the morning early with the girls at the hairdressers and Neil joined the guys at home with Scott. In a mist of hairspray and a buzz of hairdryers I met two young ladies (Nicola’s nieces), after their hair was to be curled, lip gloss applied (and slowly eaten) they were going to walk with Nicola and her other two bridesmaids down the aisle. The two little treasures really gave me a bit of a giggle as they asked if I’d be dancing later, would my boyfriend be coming and when are you putting your dress on? They were SO EXCITED about their aunties big day and it was beautifully evident that there were some fabulous members of family and friends that were there to wish Nicola and Scott all the happiness.
After the ceremony we followed a convoy of cars behind the wedding car to Horsley. I’ll thank the golfers again for being so patient with us and not having a wobble fit when we ventured off track and on to the middle of their course, it all added to the giggles and Nicola and Scott got to ride on a golf buggy! During the speeches Scott refereed to events that had occurred on that day in history. One being the start of the great fire of London, I think this was more of a warning that history was not to repeat itself when the Chinese lanterns were to be lit later on. Thankfully they took off without too much concern and as many of them flew off together it made for a pretty sky light.
I also managed to spend some time at the Honeymoon Cottage that Nicola and Scott had for their overnight stay, where we took some images with its beautiful lighting. We then returned to their guests for the first dance and a fond farewell to everyone who had been so welcoming!
Mr & Mrs Harrison, we wish you a beautiful life together, may you have many, many happy times. It’s been a real pleasure getting to know you both and being involved in your day. Have a great honeymoon!!!! Neil & Becky xxx
