As these two met skiing and are sports mad, there were lots of fun touches throughout the day. And after a beautiful service by Monsignor at their family church in Nunthorpe, near Middlesborough, complete with a choirconducted by Tom’s mum singing Swing Low Sweet Chariot, the gang crossed into Richmondshire for the reception. After a meteorologically mixed start, you couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful summer’s evening for the afternoon partying! The weather’s the only thing you can’t book at a wedding, and it’s so nice seeing friends and family on the lawn outside Middleton Lodge soaking in the sunshine with cocktails, their own hand-pulled pints of real ale and amazing canapes (including mini bites of the infamous North Eastern delicacy, the parmo!).
I hope you enjoy our story of the day!
It’s always lovely joining a fun pair for a relaxed, bit awesome wedding celebration up at Middleton Lodge! Here’s wishing Claire & Tom a very happy life together as man and wife!
Have a fantastic African honeymoon split between beachy Mozambique and Safari in South Africa! I’m well jealous!
