Kate and Sam, with great friends and family, had spent months preparing the wedding venue. They had painted the walls of the shed, sanded and varnished old trestles, made flower boxes to hang on the walls, made place cards for the tables, created a guest book, a wishing well, a tree of life where guests were to put their fingerprints. They wanted the party at home, “We just want to be able to dance all night”.
The rustic arch was up on top of the hill for the rehearsal the day before. The water view through the arch was spectacular. But sadly, the wedding day weather was wet and windy. That morning I sent a text to the bride with a pic of ‘glam gummies’ I had spotted – was the bride interested? She was over the moon and said “get some for yourself as well, we’ll both wear them”.
