In the middle of my exams I had accepted an invitation to Matt’s aunt’s wedding. Although I felt a little overwhelmed with exams, and sort of wasn’t sure if I should go or not due to lack of time – I am so glad I went! It was a beautiful wedding, and I really enjoyed it. I was very glad to be a part of their big day. She had such a lovely dress and the flower arrangements were so beautiful (Matt’s grandfather had made them). The wedding was officiated at a small English church, and the reception was held at ‘Shrigley Hall‘. The ceremony was really sweet and I almost cried when I saw her walking down the aisle (which surprised me since I do not know her that well yet, but she just looked so beautiful). Shrigley Hall was a really nice venue and some of us stayed the night as well. The food was really nice, and the entertainment at night was really good. They had a guy singing Michael Bublé and Frank Sinatra songs (and other classics) and he was soooo good. Those kind of songs are right down my street! The hotel room was really nice as well, very big and seemed clean haha. The breakfast buffet the morning after was nice as well, a typical English breakfast I’d say.
I did manage to get sunburned though, I think most of us did. The photographer wanted to take some photos of all the wedding guests outside of Shrigley Hall, which honestly was a great idea. However, because all of the guests weren’t present we had to wait for all to arrive. And that process took a while and since I hadn’t put any sun-lotion on it was an open invitation to get burned. It wasn’t too bad though, it was only my shoulders but I did actually peel a week later 😀 Oh well! I wanted to share some photos from the day and I’ve also put a little video together which you can watch at the very end of the post by clicking on the photo of it. ?
