We woke up to a crisp Halloween day, the perfect weather for what turned out to be not your normal wedding. Rebecca is a huge fan of autumn, so much so as the whole wedding theme was autumn, the colours, design even the menu.Richard & Rebecca had put so much planning into this day & with good reason,the day was split in three, first was the wedding held at a packed Christchurch in Nelson where afterwards friends & family chatted over tea & the best chocolate cake EVER!!!.Secondly onto the impressive Towneley Hall in Burnley, this place has some superb locations for wedding photography & we had a blast with the guests then very emotional speeches in a tepee,this was a first for us never been in a place like it, open log fire (just what was needed) and a real outdoor/indoor feel complimented by a winter themed wedding breakfast.
Now its at this point where the day blends into the night but not this wedding, guests slowly made their way back to hotel rooms to prepare for the third part of the wedding, an evening masquerade ball & as promised the room & feel changed to a Halloween party & guest arrived in black ties & masks and wow what an atmosphere. The party then moved outside for Chinese lanterns this was just a laugh with friends sending flaming lanterns skywards or (even funnier) sometimes not, any way back inside for not one but two Hog roasts, piñata for the kids and dancing it really was a struggle for Jane & I to leave
Have a great Honeymoon & thanks again for something special.Hope nobody said the lanterns were UFO's this time.D.
