Chally and Jon 21.08.15
On August 21st 2015 at Herons Farm an extremely happy Chally could be seen dancing in the courtyard with excitement as she waited to be married to Jon
The bride looked beautiful in her hand made dress, as she stood with her very dapper groom and in front of family and friends became Mr and Mrs Spokes
The sun shone brightly as everyone made there way into the garden for prosecco with raspberry and peach spheres and pink lemonade, along with tasty canapés of ….
Oak Smoked Salmon Blini, Crème Fraiche & Fresh Dill
Mini Pimento Pepper Filled with Feta & Black Olive Tapenade
Out on there lawn there were home made games for all to enjoy, splat a rat, tin can ally and hook a duck.
Not just any hook a duck though, guests names were on the bottom of each swimming duck and once hooked their table names were reviled, great fun to begin the wedding feast.
The barn transformed from ceremony to dining room looked beautiful, long tables gave a very social feel and the bride and groom ate a course at each table enabling them to talk to all their guests, bunting hung from the beams and homemade napkins and favours decorated each place setting.
