    Sonia and Jude's Wedding- Manchester

    November 16, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

    What a fabulous day??!!! Busy morning pottering around whilst the girls were having hair and make up before pre wedding bubbly at The Font in Chorlton.
    After getting out of the black cab and into the white one sent, off we went with the brides and Catrin to prepare for the ceremony at Manchester Art Gallery.
    Soon we were setting up amongst the Lowry art works as Kate was playing the pre ceremony playlist to the v early guests.
    The girls were stunning and the ceremony which included 4 fabulous ( 2 not so traditional) readings resulted in hardly a dry eye in the place.
    Next it was off to the pre- raphaelite Gallery for bubbly and canapés which was the first chance to catch up with long lost friends.
    6.30pm saw us head to the Britain’s Protection pub where blisters were compared and cabs ordered for a journey that took longer to drive than to walk!
    The evening do at Manchester science and industry museum was out of this world with games, photo booth, dancing and lots of frolicking and laughter.
    This finished at 1am but Bride 1 insisted on more drinks in Canal Street so off we went to Churchill’s emerging ( some reluctantly) at 2.30am.
    Off to bed at 3am but not before Sonia mistook a cork for some toast !!! Amazing day and most future happiness to the girls.

    Post wedding- a bit of a slow day

    November 17, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Despite getting to bed at 3am we were up at 8am with cups of coffee and reflections of the day.... followed by reflections of 1997!!!
    12pm saw us get a taxi to Dukes 92 for post wedding lunch for anyone who wanted to come. About 30 tired, slightly hungover and hungry people spent a v pleasant couple of hours chatting, laughing, eating and drinking coffee before heading in every direction to all corners of the UK- hoping we see each other again before too long. Great, great wkend xxRead more

    Manchester!!!- its bitterly cold!!

    November 14, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 4 °C

    Started the day early with an eye test and having to make hundreds of decisions re new glasses!
    Then there was a fab reunion with Sonia in Chorlton before catching the number 86 bus back into town for wedding outfit shopping.
    Happy memories as we bolted around Afflecks Palace for old times sake.
    There are soo many sequins in the shops but all just too revealing and too short for the wind chill factor.
    6pm and it was off to the Manchester Art Gallery wedding venue for planning before a pie and a pint in The Bank pub.
    Now off to bed with a full day tmrw and hopefully purchasing some shoes otherwise it will be walking shoes at the wedding!
