KATY & JAMES’S MIDDLETON LODGE WEDDING
Well, my year finally got underway with Katy & James’s Spring wedding with ceremony at St Michael & All Angels church followed by reception at Middleton Lodge.
After a Winter of updating websites, engagement photo-shoots and general thumb twiddling, it was good to finally get back into wedding season again!
I must have first met James at his brother Simon’s wedding to Alexis in 2011 so it was good to catch up with several familiar faces from that day.
After an early Spring of mostly quite dull and cool weather, it was great that the sun decided to make an appearance and add a bit of warmth.
Preparations took place at Middleton lodge itself with Katy travelling in a white vintage Jaguar and the guests by red London bus to the church just a couple of miles away.
Post-ceremony, it was back to this fine country house venue for a champagne & canapes reception in the garden.
Then it was time for the meal and speeches in the marquee before dancing the night away to a band.
I’m always interested in the unique personal touches at every wedding and this had two that stood out with Katy’s engagement ring being her grandmothers and the sword that was used to cut the cake was her grandfather’s old naval sword.
