A couple of weekends back was the wedding of Louise & Mark. It was a lovely day and we kicked off with the preps at The Woodlands Hotel, a fave spot of mine on the outskirts of Leeds

It was a great day all round – lovely balmy weather and loads of fun details dotted about the place.  One of their bridesmaids was a gent too, who went on the Hen night in his very own set of fake boobs (see the gallery below).  I loved that he called himself a ‘Bridesmate’.  Here he is having a bit of trouble with the ol’ cravat.  I often end up doing these for the dudes.

Out came some spendy bubbles, along with a charming card:

The flora on the day was choice – Mr B likes bouquets wot stand up!

A few details of the marquee set for ‘Breakfast’.  A fine choice of vino too – wirey Reserva Rioja & a chilled Sancere.  Mmmm.

After the first dance was a special treat from the Hens, to the tune of Britney Spears… Brilliant.
