Just time to squeeze in a couple of Christmas weddings before summer gets going properly! It was my first time in Bath for Nicki and Simon’s wedding at the very grand Assembly Rooms. Preparations took place at a fantastic boutique B&B by the name of Grays. Then, after wrestling with parking in central Bath on one of the last Saturdays before Christmas, I met the rest of the wedding as they were gathering in the Octagon room for the ceremony. There was music from some theatrical friends of the couple, and then the guests gathered in the bar for drinks and nibbles.
The meal and evening party took place in the Tea Room, with the bride and groom introduced by a family member on toastmaster duty (red coat and everything). The meal was followed by the usual speeches, with some performances from an adolescent Simon courtesy of his best man’s media presentation. With the cake cut, the band struck up, and the dancing began.
Just one more 2014 wedding to come!
