We got married in my village church, where my parents were married, where I was christened, where I used to sing in the choir...
Nick's best man Ken came over from the States with Nick's parents, grandmother and aunt and uncle. My flower girl was Eloise, the daughter of an English family who helped Nick and I meet when we were both in Kenya - he with a water charity, I with the local Bible College as a teacher.
I bought the slub silk material in Nairobi and a dear Kenyan friend, Faith, made my basic dress. Then a seamstress friend of my parents made an under-skirt with Nottingham lace and fashioned a bustle scattered with silk rosebuds. I found the lace parasol in a charity shop :-)
These are my favourite two pictures. The first we had enlarged and framed and it sits on our window sill - a tad faded after 25 years, rather like us! A group of my parents' friends surprised us with the Rolls Royce wedding car - we had planned to use a friend's car. Our wedding and honeymoon in the Lake District were planned with the grand budget of £1000 - but lack of money didn't stop us having a day to remember :-)
