Today we attended the wedding of Aimee and Ashley at St Matthews Church, in Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire. We started the day with Aimee and the girls getting ready at Aimee’s grandparent’s bungalow, situated close to Long Sutton, where a marquee had been erected a few days earlier, in readiness for the reception party later that day. It was such a lovely experience as everyone was so excited and having so much fun. The morning quickly passed and it was time to head to Church.
St Matthews Church in Sutton Bridge is simply beautiful, being built out of black flint, making it both visually striking and certainly unique. Rev David Wood came out of retirement to conduct the ceremony for Aimee and Ashley, which was a lovely touch to what proved to be a perfect day.
Ashley arrived at Church in a huge lorry, whilst Aimee took the more traditional approach and arrived in a beautiful vintage car. Fun, friendly and personal are words that best describe the ceremony and the early morning light rain also stopped in time for us to exit Church and head for the reception.
There is something wonderful about marquee weddings, especially when they are erected on the family property. It just feels more personal for the couple and their family and guests. There are also fewer restrictions, allowing the party to continue way into the early hours!
We wish Aimee and Ashley a long and healthy life together and our very best wishes for the future.
