Upstairs in a very grand bedroom the girls were putting the finishing touches to the details: Karen's buttons and Jessica's silk flower.
The boys and guests are ready downstairs...
...and Karen arrives on time with her Dad
It was a really nice ceremony in a lovely room filled with close family and friends from as far as Luxembourg, Netherlands and Newcastle!
Instead of confetti we had bubbles. Bottles of bubbles and bubble guns. Loads of bubbles!
Karen and Jonathan were game for some fun pictures on the tennis court.
Jonathan - justifiably proud of his cake of cheese.
Jessica and Karen have been friends since childhood. Who'll be next down the aisle Jessica? (I hope I'm allowed to say these things as Jessica happens to be my gorgeous cousin)
Karen's dad gave a fine speech before dinner which praised and humiliated in equal measure as all good speeches should.
Karen and Jonathan - What a great day. I was really glad to be there with you and I hope the evening went well - I got the impression it was going to be a very glamourous and fun night!
I'll be in touch soon when the rest of the pictures are ready.
