Another summer Saturday, another wedding. This time it was the turn of Anna and Anthony at Greyfriars House. Anna featured in a blog post of mine two years ago for Laura and Michael’s wedding and indeed, Laura was here again at this wedding as a bridesmaid, a pregnant one at that. In fact there were bumps left and right at bridal preps as Anna was nervously getting ready for the ceremony which was at the nearby St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church in Sutton where Anthony was eagerly awaiting her arrival.
The entertainment for the ceremony was provided by the priest himself, who was by far and away the most, dare I say eccentric priest I’ve witnessed yet. Much laughter was brought to proceedings by his actions and it made for a very relaxed ceremony, with of course a few serious bits thrown in.
Once the nuptials were exchanged and the ceremony was concluded it was time to head down the A3 to Greyfriars House, a lovely venue that I’d never had the pleasure of working at prior to this wedding. Some stunning views can be had looking south from the gardens of the venue, with plenty of space for guests to mingle and kids to run around and wear themselves out. Sunshine and clear skies meant we got the most of the views while the drinks were flowing before everyone was called inside for the wedding breakfast.
Speeches came before the meal on this occasion which included a fine attempt at Spanish by Anthony, and after everyone was well fed it was time for the kids to have their fun with a Piñata out in the gardens. I’m quite glad I was standing well back for this one… The cake cutting followed and then the first dance signalled the end of a truly excellent day.
