Surprise, Surprise! Wedding Day

So as surprises go this one was pretty huge, gargantuan in fact. Jason & I have known Jackie & Andy together & independently for more years than we would like to remember, they were both involved in the import of artificial flowers consequently our paths had crossed on many occasions, over the years we have become friends.
On Wednesday Jackie came in to see me, this is always a strange one but when someone says “can you keep a secret?” you do need to think about it rather carefully “Am I allowed to tell Jason?” “Yes you are” relief, thank goodness for that, because I honestly can’t, keep a secret that is, from Jason. The plan was that special guests were invited to Jackie’s 40th birthday party, they were asked to bring flats/trainers, and they’d be going on a little jaunt, a trip to the beach or to see a horse who knew? The coach left The Rooms and suddenly, mysteriously broke down outside The White Church. The Groom Andy

The Reverend David Phillips, Jason & I complete with buttonholes & bouquets were there to meet them, there was a lot of bewilderment, a lot of “I guessed” & “I told you so’s”, an awful lot of laughter and tears of joy!

The very shocked & excited bridesmaids altogether there were seven, Ellie & Beckie, Sophie, Trinity, Esme, Sophie & Jade.

Everyone applauded the Bride Groom in.
Everyone seemed to be quite spellbound, caught in the moment!

The service was really fab, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a congregation sing louder (out of tune, maybe, but seriously loud), you know all the bits where you want to applaud but are usually mindful of church etiquette and don’t, well they did, with gusto!

Mr and Mrs Baker are just coming back down to earth after Jak's 40th birthday, our 'suprise' wedding and our house warming all rolled into one big sunny day. Thank you Jane and Jason, you made an already very special day even more special, and your flowers were as always amazing, I loved them, especially Andy's buttonhole!
My husband and I (yikes, that sounds fab!)are so pleased you could join us back at 'the rooms' after the ceremony, and I am glad you preferred the fish pie!
I love the blog, and now I have got the hang of it, I will visit it more frequently.
Need to start thinking about the next event now, promise I will give you more warning for the flowers!
