Husband and I had another child free day yesterday (that's 2 weekends in a row) at a gorgeous family wedding. It was a humanist wedding, the first I've been to and the ceremony was focused around the story of how the couple met. So personal and incredibly funny. It was much longer than the usual standard civil ceremony. One element that I loved was the readings. The Bride and Groom had no idea what readings had been chosen. It was a testament to how well their friends know them as they fitted the ceremony perfectly.
Now, I'm a stickler for attention to detail and this wedding did not let me down. It themed around music as the couple are huge musos. The tables were album covers presented in CD cases, our name places were printed on cassettes (I'm desperately hoping a mix tape of the wedding music is on there rather than it being blank but have no way of checking...) all the stationery had song lyrics printed on and even the quiz was about their favourite artists and albums. Needless to say my table (The Toni Braxton table) won. The £50 tab went down well. So it was a lot of fun mixed with beautiful pink delicate flowers and a gorgeous stately home setting. Pretty near perfect wedding I must admit.
