Stowe School Wedding

This weekend must have been the busiest weekend for weddings, I knew of 5 happening!

We attend a work colleagues at Stowe School, Buckinghamshire.  Oh my, what a venue!!  Since we aren't close family we were invited to the evening reception and to make a day of it we visited the National Trust grounds, catching a glimpse of the new Bride and Groom taking photos.

Luckily one of our group went to Stowe for school and we go a discount on tickets, either way though it is worth a day trip.  What a beautiful setting!  Words can not describe.




Now back to the wedding.  They were married in the main hall, over looking the grounds.  When we arrived they were just taking to the dance floor for their first dance :-)  We also got to take part in catching the bouquet (or 2) and I missed both times!

The evening was a great mix of dancing to classic 80s, drinks (free bar) on the steps and then a magical fireworks display before a coach took all the guest back to the local DoubleTree Hilton where we all seemed to be staying.  A few more drinks and a late night Domino's were had before hitting the sack by 3 am.
