Congratulations to Nicola & Fran!


What are these mysterious boxes in the Vestibule at Church?

Aha! they are the Orders Of Service for the Wedding















Nicola- a very beautiful bride - a very beautiful bride, arrived [a little late!] and came down the aisle on the arm of her Dad, Mike - to the strains of Pachelbel's Canon.

Two very nervous young people made their vows- Bob soon put them at their ease, and the atmosphere in church was happy and relaxed


And out they came together to Mendelssohn's Wedding March


Lots of photos outside the church in the sunshine [where it had absolutely thrown it down with rain 24 hours before!]



Then off to the reception in a lovely little car!



One happy couple outside Bosworth Hall!

And the bride - with parents, grandparents, siblings, partners, niece ...and new husband!


I thought this one was The Bride's Girlfriends- but somehow two blokes got in on this shot as well.







The three of us [I am SO short!]

I include this one because it is the only picture I have found that shows anything of the pretty pink fascinator I had pinned to the back of my head. Thank you, dear friend Elisabeth B., for the loan of that, and matching pink bag!





Inside our places were set round tables of ten. Each guest had a little gift - a keyring/bottle opener inscribed with the couple's names and the date.




We were sitting with our good friends Simon and Lynda.






Nic and Fran cut the cake!








Claire and Sophie - two more good friends - Sophie is currently working as our Church Administrator [and is doing it very capably!] and Claire is about to start teaching in Rotherham.





More attractive young ladies - Steph with Rebecca and Cat









The happy couple [and that gorgeous car] again.

It was a lovely day, and this morning at church, everyone was saying how much they enjoyed the event. My prayer is for Nic and Fran that they will enjoy many happy years together and know God's richest blessings throughout their married life.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. ...And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Footnotes - thankyou Steph, most of these pictures are ones which you took! Thanks again to Elisabeth B for the fascinator. Thanks to Jane and Mike, Laurie and John [the parents] as well as Nic and Fran, for giving us all such a lovely day.

To Elizabeth T, and other KMFC friends who couldn't be there, hope you enjoyed looking at these photos. I am sure there are lots of others on the Internet already!


  1. How very beautiful it all was. A perfect day. And I love the fascinator!

  2. You look lovely, Angela!
    The flowers are perfect!

  3. Thanks for the comments. The dress is the one I had for Liz's graduation/our Silver Wedding Party back in 2004!

  4. I had a shock seeing the photos. That's the first wedding of a person who used to be one of my young people!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
