Road trip: Anglesey part 2 (the wedding).

7.7.13

If you missed part 1 you can find it here.

The final full day of our trip to Anglesey was the reason we were there in the first place. A wedding! The groom is an old friend of Jonathan's who he worked with many years ago. I met him and his lovely bride last year when they came to stay with us for the weekend and we ate an astronomical amount of tapas and drank large quantities of Sangria.

We were really looking forward to the wedding. With the beautiful setting, a forecast for lovely weather and knowing that the bride would be putting her interior design skills to good use, it was set to be a great day!


The wedding reception was to be held on the grounds of the cottages we were staying in but first we had to hot foot it to a local church for the ceremony. The church was beautiful inside and out, and the ceremony itself was lovely too. Vicky (the bride) looked absolutely stunning in her dress.

While the bride and groom headed off in their VW Beetle for photos at some local hotspots we made our way back to the cottages a couple of minutes drive away and got settled on the hay bales in the garden where there was (or so it felt like) an unlimited supply of Pimms which we drank through stripy straws. Perfection!

The gardens were full of such wonderful things. With the bride and groom being lovers of all things outdoors there were an array of plants, flowers and even a pretty blue shed! There was also a bird theme which ran throughout, as they both love places such as South Stack cliffs which you can see more of here. With hearts hanging in the trees, bookcases adorned with trinkets, and a huge marquee I had to capture a few things with my camcorder as we will no doubt be stealing borrowing some of their fabulous ideas for our own wedding.


The evening portion of the wedding was spent inside the marquee, kitted out with photo bunting featuring photos of all the wedding guests. We even spotted a couple of photos of us, as well as plenty of embarrassing guest photos which gave us a chuckle.

After some great food, the speeches and the cutting of the cake it was onto the dance floor to take part in ceilidh dancing! If you know me at all you'll know that I hate participation in any kind of group activity but it was actually a lot of fun. I ended up dancing in two out of four routines. See if you can spot me at the end of my video!

After the ceilidh, the band played classic rock n roll which went on into the early hours (oh and I should mention the yummy cheese and biscuits that came out at about 10pm. Jonathan and I were first up, oh the shame!) and we retired to bed feeling very full and happy from such a lovely day.

I do love a good wedding!
