Winter wedding!!!

Last Wednesday 30th December, I attended the wedding of my friend Lesley's daughter Katie!

Katie married Mark at St Mary Magdalen Church in the village of Magdalen Laver in Essex.

The weather was horrible: it was pouring with rain, very dull, and freezing cold!!!

The welcome we all received though, was most definitely warm and loving!!!

The church was beautifully decorated and surprisingly cosy (they made sure it had been heated for days!!)!!

The bride looked stunning in a latte coloured wedding gown (no photo's yet - sorry)!!

After the wedding ceremony we went back to Lesley's where there was a marquee set up in their garden!!

The marquee was beautiful!!

We were met with a Winter Pimms and hot canapes!!! Just right for the time of year!!

The we enjoyed a lovely meal of traditional 'bangers and mash', served with onion gravy and roasted veggies!!!

Then to finish, Lesley had made 90 portions of her signature raspberry cheesecake!!! Signature - not able to be frozen raspberry cheesecake!!! Yum yum!!

What a mum eh!!

Then we had a fantastic disco and danced the evening away!!!

Congratulations to Katie and Mark - wishing you a long and happy life together!!!

Kindest wishes and love
