Photos of 'The' Wedding

Marc and Alix had planned this for months right down to the minutest detail and the planning showed.  the day was excellent with lots of love, laughter and fun.  The setting was idylic in an Arts and Craft style house overlooking Windermere.
View of the lake from our bedroom window and of the house from the garden.
Not sure who was the most nervous as they waited for Alix to arrive.
She didn't keep them waiting long and grinned her way down the aisle.  Her father looked as proud as punch.  Sorry the photos is a bit blurry it was a difficult shot as everyone wanted a photo of her.
Signing the register;
The happy couple relax a little now that the formal part is over.
The bridesmais Joanne and Michelle looked beautiful too.
Didn't they scrub up well, the four men in my life - from left to right, Marc, Keith, Syand Matthew.

Me, Keith and the dratted fascinator.  I am just the right height to poke the feathers into peoples ears and eyes.  I took it off as soon as the formal photos were finished much to the relief of anyone standing next to me.

Simon and Julie, Sy looked much happier now that he'd given his speech he could relax.
Cutting the chocolate wedding cake.  Two friends of Alix made the cake, one tier is the traditional fruit cake the other two are sponge cake, one chocolate and one vanilla.  The photo doesn't do it justice but it tasted delicious and most of it was eaten only a small amount was left to take home.  We've just had a piece with a cuppa.

Marc relaxing  on the terrace with Alix and below with Matty, think the alcohol might have helped a bit.
The day ended as beautifully as it started.
