Caroline and Stuart's Wedding

Saturday 14th January 2012

Caroline and Stuart's Wedding

Caroline back from the hairdressers ready for her dress and to get wed :)

Chief page boy looking fab in his bow tie and cummerbund
just chilling with a custard cream and 'those naughty birds on Mummy's phone' 

Trying to get a sneaky look at Aunty Caroline in her dress 

Granne making the last finishing touches

In the car wearing Chauffer Ben's hat

Excited nieces, nephews, sister in laws and Jamie, waiting for Aunty Caroline to get out of the car

The service was lovely, lots of smiles on faces and also tears. Andrew cried from the pulpit as Caroline walked down the aisle which set her off even more! Bishop Hooson gave a beautiful talk as did Andrew. I think I managed to play 'Dawn' with only a few minor omissions which hopefully didn't detract. Joseph sat really well with his sticker book dressing up superheros and princesses. Ben ended up asleep on Nathan's shoulder at the back :)

Charlie having cuddles with Rebecca

Amazing cake by Val

The proud 'Greats' who had a lovely time chatting with Stuarts grandparents across the table. At one point when the amazing desserts were being handed out. Grandad asked Grandad Wilson (who had something different to everyone else) 'So what have you got that we haven't?' The reply was 'diabetes!'

Daddy was on boy duty as I was sitting at the top table

Mr & Mrs Wilson


Mum looking beautiful with Emily the fabulous flower girl - she loved it:)

The amazing trio of desserts : Ruth Walker's cherry cheesecake, Angela's brownie, Mum's lemon mousse in brandy baskets made by Val - it went down a treat :)

The bride and bridesmaids

Ben enjoying the purple favours 

Father of the Bride's speech

Dad relegating the white rose and promoting the red he feels more at home with (a joke brought back from the speech made at our wedding!)

Proud parents

The Groom's speech

The Best man's speech (Graeme) (stories about surfing down the stairs on a bed and microwave experiments including CDs, drinks cans, soap and an egg - sounds like something I'd do lol!)

Richard finding solace in a big bowl of crisps

Caroline looked beautiful in the stunning dress Mum had made

Anyone for cake?

Dream team - Val and Dale :)

Nathan did a fab job of running'Daddy day care' 

Mum had done an amazing job on the dresses 

There were three entrants into the 'Muckiest White Shirt Contest'

Though I'm quite reluctant to admit defeat for my own boys I do think on this occasion Jack won it with Ben in a close second and Joseph really lagging behind quite considerably!

Actually looking at this  photographic evidence I'm not sure if Ben actually clinched it?

Isabelle taking note of the result :)

Photo shoot time -
