After their hunger had been sated the guests retired to their rooms to get ready for the upcoming ceremony.

At three o’clock that afternoon Mike and Marion surrounded by their closest family and friends said their vows and were announced as Husband and Wife.

After the ceremony the guests mingled in the courtyard enjoying iced Pimms in jam jars and croquet on the lawn.

The barn was simply decorated with beautiful flowers in vintage tins and vases. The gift table was stacked with home made jams, all lovingly made by the bride and groom as favours for their guests.

When it was time for the dancing to begin instead of a first dance the bride and groom invited their guests on to the dance floor for a traditional barn dance. The barn was filled with laughter and fun for the rest of the evening as couples were swinging each other round the dance floor to the music.

Best wishes to Mike and Marion, is was a pleasure to be part of your big day.
