We were invited to a wonderful wedding on Saturday.
I will not embarrass the happy couple by mentioning them by name but suffice to say they are the nicest people and we are proud to call them friends . Their thoughtfulness and creativity shone through in every aspect of the wedding.
The invites arrived printed on customised tea towels which left the guests with a marvelous memento of a perfect day.
The ceremony was held in an old,traditional church (truthfully if you imagine a cathedral you will picture it accurately) and as well as classical piecesplayed by church organist and choir there was a stunning moment when the bride walked down the aisle to Elbows anthemic “One Day Like This.”
The couples humour shone through with a reading of Elvis Presleys “Wonder Of You” read straight faced and brilliantly by a friend.
All these personal touches continued throughout the day with great live music and some quality DJs providing music during the reception which was held in a grand hall,Firth Court,a magnificent part of Sheffield University.
Their creativity and thoughtfulness was particularly evident in the place settings at the wedding breakfast.
The place settings at the meal were printed onto seven inch single labels.The groom is a massive music fan and used to work in the record industry so this reflected his (and the brides) past and present love of music.A fantastic and unusual use of the vinyl.
It was only half way through the meal that one of the people sharing our table turned over his record place setting and realised that this was personalised to him.It was a Utah Saints record which is not an obvious choice unless you remember that the person sat there used to work with the Utah Saints!
He turned to his partner who is a Doctor, and sure enough, her record was Doctor Beat by Gloria Estafan. A friend who looks like Morrisey had Morriseys “November Spawned a Monster” and so on.Every single one of the 150 guests had a personalised original vinyl place setting chosen by the couple and hunted down on the Internet in order to give a talking point to the meal and another brilliant memento of a fantastic day.
We were touched and honoured to have been invited to this wonderful wedding and we took away with us a souvenier which will always remind us of this fantastic day.
