The Happy Couple
Tricia looked beautiful as her proud father, Bernard,
walked her down the aisle.
We weren't allowed to take photos during the ceremony, but as soon as it was over, I whipped out my camera again!
Here, Tricia is signing the register...
...and here she is getting ready to leave the church,
followed closely by her new husband, Tim.
The Newly Weds.
They left for the reception in this magnificent old car
At Oaklands Hall, the tables were beautifully laid,
ready for the Wedding Breakfast.
During the speeches, Tim declared his love for Tricia,
it was very romantic!
The gorgeous wedding cake.
Every guest had a stack of lucky chocolate gold coins,
to bring them wealth
The main dish was a favourite of the bride and groom,
Sausage and Mash, with Yorkshire Pudding!
All the children were delighted to receive a traditional Chinese red envelope,
containing a £5 note.
Introducing the bride and groom, and part of our new extended family
The cutting of the cake
We all had such fun on that happy day, and wish Tricia and Tim every happiness in their new life together. However, this was not the end of the celebrations. I was lucky enough to attend their Chinese Wedding as well! Fabulous! More of that in my next post.
