A Mexican Wedding

It started with this beautifully designed invitation. We were going to a wedding!

imageWe were delighted to have been asked and looked forward to something a little different as befits the bride (who we had not met) and the groom. We knew they were going to Mexico for their honeymoon but did not realise that this was to be the theme throughout!

 

It was held in an old Tudor Barn. As soon as we climbed the stairs to the long gallery where the service would be held, we knew it was going to be a day of colour! The Mexican bunting set the tone for the celebrations. The registrar  certainly got into the spirit of things. I have to say I have never been told that I was important as a member of the congregation. She explained that we had all been invited because we were important to the ‘engaged’ couple and would continue to play a part in their married lives supporting them as the years go by. A really lovely sentiment.

The bride, Celia, looked stunning in an amazing dress made by her mum and the cake, made by Rob’s mum was definitely a centre piece. However the thing that really did shine out were the smiles! So many of them  all led by this wonderful pair.

After the ceremony we all went downstairs while the room was prepared for the reception. The Mexican theme continued with the lay-out of the tables. We were in ‘team’ denoted by cards – ours was ‘Caballero Meurto’. Each guest had a handmade pinata with goodies inside. For the gents, an embroidered handkerchief and for the ladies some nail varnish plus Love Hearts (remember them?) and a balloon!

We had an amazing day, made some new friends and had the pleasure of being at the beginning of Celia and Rob’s lifetime of love and happiness! ¡Felicidades!!
