Wiltshire wedding – Laura & Niall

A Wiltshire wedding for Laura and Niall – was it a summer or an autumn wedding – the weather wasn’t sure! A wedding in a small Wiltshire village, Whiteparish, just south-east of Salisbury and just above the New Forest. A ceremony in the village church and a reception, in a marquee within a walled garden, at Laura’s parents’ home, just down the road.

That’s where the coverage begins, with Laura getting ready with her bridesmaids and family. All eyes looking to the sky – which forecast would be right? Cloud or sun? The sun came for a bit, as Niall greeted family and friends outside All Saints Church. It was even in evidence when Laura’s mum and the bridesmaids were dropped off in the vintage Rolls Royce. But then there was a blip. The Rolls broke down on the return journey to collect Laura and her father. Then it seemed there was a problem with the car jack. The guests, seated in the church, were kept informed – the bridesmaids waiting by the road in the sunshine, were told too. But the minutes ticked by.

Plan B. Laura’s dad drove her to the church. The ceremony started 35 minutes late. A lovely, intimate church, on the edge of the former village green, begun in the late twelfth century. A quintessential English church ( if you ignore the Norman/Saxon debate). The sun shone through the windows for a time. By the time the ceremony was over, so was much of the sunshine.

The light became duller as the day wore on (a brief spark of sun at the end) and the weather grew chillier and more autumnal. The forecast said more sunshine….The marquee was sealed and heated. The orchard flickered to life, with lights in the apple trees, as the sun dipped below the horizon. September always seems to come as a surprise at how quickly the day starts to end. The fairy lights in the trees were a backdrop to some of the best wedding speeches I’ve heard in some time! (Keith Richards) The band then waited in position for the first dance – and the party kicked off!
