Wedding Photos

My favourite photo

The wedding started at 5pm. Everyone turned up on time . Old friend John made the reading " love is like owning a dog" come alive a little......so much so the Registar asked for a copy of it
Sorrel and Charlotte ( chris' sister In Law) joking 

Chris making me laugh at the ring thing


Confetti on the Town Hall Steps

A vintage 1960 coach picked the guests up after the ceremony for a quick jaunt up the Promenade


Nuala and me 

Centre is Jim ( Nuala's husband) loved the blue suit



My ststers had decorated the tables at Osborne House with Scottie favours, and underwater flowers with floating candles.....it all looked bloody lovely
I have more family and friends photos to add to these below!

The tables



Laughing at the speeches


Jim and old friend Mike




Leo ( Chris' nephew) & Janet ( twin sister)


Izzy . Chris and my mother in law

Judy, jayne and Ann




My nephew Chris parter Rebecca and my great neice Ellie


Nuala and Bel Ami and wife Bev

I made a rather emotional speech 

 Chris' brother Jon made a wonderfully funny speech in which he managed to mention Winnie's fanny cloth

Jo and Sorrel 

Old friend Bev


Me and Nu...nu made a cracking speech as " best woman" which celebrated gay marriage and our 26 years of friendship together 
She also managed to get a load of irish nuns into the story

  97. I am also sitting here in tears John. What I love so much about all these photos is how much your families love you both and how much they have accepted gay marriage (not accepted by everyone as I am sure you know only too well). I have a trans-gender grand-daughter aged 21 who has just not made his/her mind up yet - she was terribly bullied at school and struggled even at Univ - but I am proud of the stand she makes against bigots - I am proud of you two too. Wonderful family occasion and lovely too see you both looking so happy. Here's to many more years of happiness.
