Fun in the sun

Jamie and Nicola Partington

Where: Ceremony at St George’s Church, Preshute followed by a reception at Wellington Barn in Calne, Wiltshire

Photography: Rosie Cutbill

The day was everything we had ever dreamed of, and everything seemed to flow incredibly smoothly. The day started with worries about the weather, but these quickly disappeared as the heavy drizzle in the morning gave way to bursting sunshine by the time our guests began to arrive at the church.

With the vicar being my godfather, the service was very personal and relaxed. It even including a real moment of levity when the vicar accidently said he was my grandfather instead of godfather!

We took some time out after the church for photos at a location on route to our venue, so managed to enjoy some relatively private time to talk about the service and our respective mornings.

The day then seemed to whizz by and before we knew it dinner had been served and the speeches were upon us. Many remarked that all three were very funny but also touching and emotional.

Once the band started all of our guests were soon in full flow, with Jaegerbombs (having received a passing comment in my father’s speech) being the order of the day at the bar. The dance floor was packed and then, before we knew it we were arriving at the Bear hotel in Devizes where we spent our first night talking through all of the days minor details.
