|The Happy Couple|
The venue looked lovely, the bride was radiant and my son made me feel so proud!
The whole day took place at the Round Chapel in Clapton, London. It's a beautiful old building. No longer used as a chapel it serves as a great venue for all sorts of functions including weddings.

We were allowed in on the Friday to start preparations and we got a lot done. On the Friday evening we had a family meal with the bride, groom, their siblings and partners, both sets of parents, best man, the other bridesmaid and their partners and one of the bride's aunts and her husband. So 18 of us in total and we had a lovely evening. Some of us were presented with a gift from the bride and groom that will keep us cosy in the winter months. Of course we had to model them!

On Saturday morning I was up bright and early to get to the venue to help finish preparing it and also to be there as other people arrived. The venue is literally a venue, although it does come equipped with tables and chairs. Everything else has to be sourced and co-ordinated. My daughter-in-law did a wonderful job. One of her uncles took care of music and the PA system. He also created a photobooth frame with accessories, plus a posting box for all their cards.

We had such a lovely day it's almost sad that it's all over but of course now all my 3 children are married we know what comes next hopefully!
