So after all the excitement of Graduation day, we were very privilegeed to be invited to a friend’s wedding on that Saturday.
The bride was one of my husband’s Scouts and he, along with a couple of other Scout Leaders, were partly responsible for bringing the happy couple together.
After the deluge of rain we experienced on the Friday prior to the wedding I was really worried about the reception. This was due to the fact that the reception was being held in tent in the middle of a field.
FUNDRAISING STONOR PARK
Due to the fundraising work these two do with their own Explorer Unit (14 – 18 year olds) and the amount of time they give volunteering to help at Stonor Park (Henley), they were given permission to hold their reception within the grounds for one night only. They had arranged for three teepee’s, large ones, to be put up so that it made a sort of Grand Hall. Those that stayed could either bring their own tent, or pay a bit extra to have a full glamping experience.
CELEBRATION FOOD AND DRINK
There was enough time for everyone to circulate properly due to the relaxed gaps between all the speeches etc. Not to mention attending the bar and copious amounts of Prosecco!
Outside the tent, there was a buffet BBQ, and a selection of giant games designed to be played outside, things like a giant connect 4 board and a game called Cub, that I had never heard of.
It was a fabulous day, at a fabulous venue, and the weather could not have been better. The food was fantastic, and the cake looked gorgeous, apparently every layer was a different flavour.
We left wishing the Bride and Groom every success and left them and their evening guests to party the night away.
MAN OF HONOUR
The Man of Honour, (yes you read that right!) the following day, was at another friends housewarming, that we had also been invited to said they eventually gave up around 2:30 am.
Apparently a good time was had by all.
WEDDING: THE IMPORTANT ONE!
