|The bride and groom|
It was a cracking day that went off without a hitch (well, apart from the "big hitch", that is). The happy couple seemed to have a really good time as well, with the bride looking resplendent in her gorgeous dress and the groom looking fairly respectable in his suit.
Lydia was mainly quiet during the ceremony, although Chris did have to spend the whole time showing her different sparkly objects (like necklaces) to keep her interested and stop her from crying. She was then pampered by her great-great aunt Ruby during the photos, before getting a little bit whingy during the meal. Later in the evening she was as good as gold and fell fast asleep despite the loud music. Overall, I think she behaved pretty well, although we were lucky that so many people were willing to hold her for a bit as that kept Lydia busy and allowed us to socialise.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to both James and my new sister-in-law Kelly for a wonderful day, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Here are a few photos from the big day:

I'll end this blog by saying once again, congratulations to the happy couple! May the rest of your married days be as happy as the first one.
To the happy couple!
