Saturday the 10th of July dawned bright, dry and fine, perfect for the wedding of the year, the decade, even the century! Yes of course it was the special day for Annabel and Jamie, the childhood sweethearts who tied the knot in the tiny St David’s Chapel at Llanthony in front of their nearest and dearest family and friends. The bride was stunning in an Oyster Pearl dress with gorgeous train and carrying freshly picked local flowers. Jamie was handsome and smart in a grey morning suit, with bridesmaids, best men and ushers all looking wonderfully co-ordinated. The church was filled with flowers and candles and after a simple ceremony the happy couple were showered with rose petal confetti. A wonderful reception followed in the marquee in the Abbey Field (after champers and fantastic home made canapés in the Priory grounds – well done Cressy, Cordelia and your wonderful team of helpers). When the side of the marquee was taken down the panoramic view of the Priory ruins was revealed to gasps of wonderment at the stunning view. Evening guests then joined in with music and dancing late into the night, even Colin was kicking up his legs to the strains of ‘Ol Blue Eyes singing New York New York! A fabulous day for all was rounded off with the magnificent sight of the Priory floodlit against the dark sky, giving the late night revellers one of the most amazing sights the valley can provide.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Windsor-Medley, from everyone at Court Farm and beyond, here’s hoping you have a fabulous honeymoon in St Lucia and we look forward to seeing you at the show on 7th August!
Love Karen and everyone at Court Farm
