The Big Day!

It's been nearly 27 years coming, but at last it came - the wedding day of Sally Jones.

It was a wonderful day that even the bad weather and the bride being an hour late couldn't spoil! Karl was remarkably calm in all the waiting - he knew that despite only being a 5 minute journey away, there was no way Sally with her bridesmaids Carolyn, Gemma and Emma would make it on time. Thankfully Roger kept us up to date with texts on how they were doing - according to Sally the lateness was his fault for spending so long in the bathroom...

The service was a wonderful mixture of music and dance. CMM provided the music group, and there was also loads of dance - Anna and Felicity leading the bridal party up the aisle, and Springs dancing in the service. Anna also danced to 'I see you hanging there' by Phatfish - a dance that we have often seen Sally dance. Simon Gudger preached, Peter Smith led the service, and Devon sang 'God cares for you'. All Roger had to do was give Sally away, although he had been faffing about the powerpoint all morning.

After the service the reception was at the local Beaufort Social club. They fed us great food, and looked after us very well. After the meal and speeches, Martin compered us through an evening of entertainment provided by family and friends (with lots and lots of dance of course!), and then a disco.

So congratulations to Karl and Sally Taylor, and may God bless you in your future together.
