Well, where do I start with this one!! Claire and I go waaaaaay back…think Friends (when it was originally broadcast once a week!!), scrunchies, Kickers, sleepovers – all the highlights of the 90s! We both loved Sea World (Claire the killer whales, I the dolphins) and said we’d be marine biologists when we grew up. Well, one of us made it!! I guess my semi-fear of animals held me back. Anyway, here we are, a decade (or so!) later, and I can’t explain how much of an honour it was to see this gorgeous gal marry her lovely man Chris.
Chris is an incredibly talented cellist (you’ll have heard his accompaniments in many a film score) so of course there were fantastic musical treats all day long; from the groom himself at the organ in the church, to musicians treating the guests during the garden drinks reception, and their first dance personalised accompaniment. What a feast for the ears!
Family means the world to these two, so it was extra special for them to be able to have their wedding in the garden of Claire’s parents’ house in Owslebury, just outside Winchester; a place that they can visit again and again, and reminisce about their beautiful day.
The happy couple are sunning it up in Corsica right now, but we wish them both all the very best for their future together, and here’s to more celebrations together in our dear Tooting! x
