A Family Wedding in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire

The Happy Couple

We were thrilled to be invited to celebrate another family wedding in England. We got to spend time with, and meet new members of, our ever extending family. Tricia and Tim were married in Corpus Christi Church, Cleethorpes, followed by a wonderful Wedding Breakfast at Oaklands Hall Hotel, Laceby.

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.

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.
