What a lovely but very cold day we had at my daughter Kim and John on their wedding day. Kim has always wanted a winter wedding and with her being a teacher it was also ideal to get married in between Christmas and the New Year as if Christmas isn’t hectic enough.
Kim and John had their wedding at St Edmunds church at Sedgefield then onto the Hardwick Hall Sedgefield in the heart of county Durham for their beautiful reception.
Kim is my youngest child and our only daughter and the last of my three children to get married.
When we got up on the morning of the wedding there was a cover of snow already and it just kept coming down right until I walked into church with Kim.
Father Michael Thompson was the celebrant at St Edmunds church who made everything so easy and put everyone at ease.
We had a great time and definitely a day to remember in many ways, but as everyone says it goes over so quickly. Here's a small sample from the day,
Thanks to Paul Leavy and James Runciman for helping with the photos, I coudnt have done it without you both.
Big thank you to Hardwick Hall from all the staff, including Jenna, Chloe, Dan and especially to Jon Hill the hotel manager who’s attention to detail was way above the call of duty, even spending a hour clearing snow off the hotel roads so the cars could get in and out of the hotel.
