Rain most certainly did not stop play last weekend as Sarah and Gary married with smiles and laughter in abundance at Scotforth St. Pauls Church in Lancaster with reception at the Ashton Hall, Garstang Golf Club, a remarkable building which dates back to Medieval times (and was a previous home of Lord Ashton).
My day started at Sarah’s fathers house as Sarah and her bridesmaids got themselves ready. Dad wept when he got his first site of Sarah in her gown! Beautiful moment!
After the church it was on to Ashton Hall, where the guests were treated to some of the best speeches I’ve heard. In a break from tradition, Sarah gave her speech too (quite a bit of in in verse!), and very moving it was too. Sarah lost her mother quite recently, and spoke very movingly of her. like most of the guests, I had trouble holding back the tears! Anyway, here’s a selection of some favourites…
Quite an emotional day really! Best wishes Sarah and Gary, and thanks for the Ale pie!
