A Day to Remember - Part III



A couple more for you!

The first one is outside the Church. I'm not sure what everyone is looking at/laughing at as I'm looking very serious behind my mafia specs and obviously not connecting with what's going on! But H&R just look so happy ...

The second photo shows the top table. I think I mentioned the gingham runner down the centre of the table a few posts ago. There were 2 to each table, who didn't know until they got there that they had been nominated. My uncle is the nearest one and Rob's dad is the one in the distance. At their place settings were a striped apron and chef's hat, together with a card stating that they were specially chosen to carve the beef for the 12 people closest to them. Everyone joined in as Han hoped, and it all worked perfectly.

What a lovely idea - and so good for getting people who don't know each other talking together too. Your daughter has come up with some inspired ideas - she should set herself up as a wedding planner
