Real Weddings – Helen & Joel and Joan & Colin

October 21, 2010

A couple of recent weddings to share with you today.  Firstly Helen and Joel who got married at the beautiful Homme House in Herefordshire:

Helen and Joel asked me to sing during the wedding breakfast which was held in the sumptuous drawing room.  Their photographer was the excellent Lars Lange who took this splendid picture of me in action:

All in all a wonderful afternoon with some very kind comments from the guests whom I’d entertained throughout the meal.  And here’s me with the bride, Helen:

The other wedding to mention was at Coombe Abbey Hotel (a favourite venue of mine as regular readers will know).  The bride and groom were Joan and Colin who had chosen a small, intimate wedding.  Again, I sang during the wedding meal in the Stuart Room and the atmosphere was wonderful – warm, relaxed and very, very happy.

Joan and Colin were absolutely wonderful.  I’d had had a couple of great telephone conversations with Colin and met up with them at one of Coombe Abbey’s wedding showcases before the wedding so felt I had got to know them quite well which made the day very special indeed.

They had organised everything themselves including asking Joan’s daughter to make a personalised cake topper:

How fabulous is that?  A great couple for whom it was a great pleasure to sing.
