So we spent the morning getting down to the wedding venue… with my back it took a little longer than normal and I was exhausted by the time we got there.

However after a short rest, it was time to set the place up.

This is my wonderful mum, all the way from the other side of the world, to see her final son taken off her hands and become someone elses responsibility 😉

Being a little bit of a different wedding, the florist and caterers had a slightly different brief from your normal white wedding. The florist really took the brief to heart with carved pumpkins and ivy – top work.

After all that set up I was exhausted, so in bed at 9 like an old man…
