Katie and Mark kicked off my 2019 weddings last month and what an awesome start to my season it was. Bride Katie got ready at her Mum's charming home in Newton Abbot, where I was blown away by Katie's paintings from her fine art degree decorating the walls. Family and friends popped in to say hello, grab a sarnie, a pre ceremony tipple, catch a glimpse of Katie and give a reassuring hand or a brotherly fist bump before heading to witness the I do's at St Matthews church Lansdcove in Ashburton. Groom Mark and the couple's son Jim, sat eagerly awaiting Katie's arrival at the church, the same church where Mark's parents where married and where Mark had himself been Christened just a stones throw from his parents house. Little Jim beamed with smiles all through the ceremony but wasn't so sure on the confetti, teehe.
Just up the road in South Brent, guests filled Glazebrook House's quirky rooms, so warm and inviting. After a meal with some truly delicious food, Katie and Mark took a walk around Glazebrook's luscious spring green garden before hitting the dance floor. The evening was wonderfully chilled, filled with humble and hilarious speeches, fun, games and sweets for the kids, and a snoozing Uncle on the sofa.
With only two months to plan their day, these guys nailed it. Loved every minute, massive congratulations Katie and Mark.xx
