My best friend's wedding...

On 7th September, Mark and I headed down to Orchardleigh House in Frome to see our best friend get married. Cindy and I have been best friends for 12 years and it was so lovely to be a part of her and Dan's special day. She wanted her (abso-blooming-lutely beautiful) dress to be featured on the blog so here you go Cindy! ;)

Attack of the confetti


I loved Cindy's hair, isn't it pretty?


Driving back to the house as husband and wife! I love how orange the car was, it matched the bright colours in the bouquets and buttonholes...


The wedding was held at Orchardleigh House in Frome- isn't it beautiful? We had such lovely weather and the house looked stunning, this is the back of it so you can imagine how fancy the front looked! We had the entire place to ourselves so it was like a very stylish house party :)


Me and my best friend Sophie all dressed up. This was the other of my two wedding outfits  and is another Coast  bargain, I just love the print so much!


A rare photo featuring Mark AND me!


And an even rarer one of all of us together as a group! Here's Chris, Sophie, Oli, Oli, me, Mike, Mark and Pete looking snazzy! We have all been friends for years and it was so lovely to be able to dance, eat and sing our hearts out :)



'My dress has pockets!'


The table decorations were beautiful. I was lucky enough to be able to take a vase filled with flowers home as I did a reading as part of the service. You can also see a bottle of some very good red wine...



Pretty party favours!



The food was delicious and we had champagne and canapes on the terrace (snazzy) before heading in for a 3 course meal. I ate my smoked salmon before Mark could take a picture but this was our main, beef stroganoff with rice...


Yummy puddings- chocolate torte, strawberry tart and sticky toffee pudding...


I love this picture that Mark took during the speeches, that really is the look of love, Congratulations guys! It was such a lovely day, I still had aching legs from dancing and an aching tummy from laughing so much a few days latwr- definitely the sign of a good day! We also got the chance to visit the Cosy Club in Bath on the Monday too, there were a few hangovers around that table! ;)

You look amazing and the bride looks fabulous in her dress (and a dress that has pockets? that's definitely well cool) :-)

We live only 10 minutes drive from Orchardleigh House but none of my friends have had the funds to get married there so I've never visited :-( xx
