So, no canoes, mountains or caves this time; no photographs of folk in caving suits; helmets & lamps. Rather, it'll be shiny vintage cars; Churches and folk in their finery - although the cake was in the shape of a mountain.
The wedding cast was as follows:
Bride, the lovely Marion
Best Man, Paul Rich
Giving the Bride Away, Josh & Charis
Minister, Rev Kim Hurst
Sermon, Rev Peter Ormerod
Readings & Prayers, Alan & Mim Rainford
Photography, Mike Fox
All on location at Wigton Methodist Church & later at the Wheyrigg Hotel (near Abbeytown)
My day started with a short run in Carlisle followed by a trip into Wigton & return for a catch up with my daughters. Paul & Joy picked me up at noon & it was back to Wigton for lunch in the Monkey Tree - with tension mounting! The weather was cold and dry as we took the short walk to a Church at which guests had already started to arrive.
It was good to spend the majority of the anxious waiting time at the Church door, meeting & greeting guests. The Church was full. At this stage all of the action being outside, thankfully Marion arrived on time, looking fantastic with a little help from the Wedding Warehouse, Carlisle and Marie Hill Millinery, Lockerbie!
While we were signing the registers the video below was played: a series of photos from our work & travels over the summer and autumn of 2013

It was a great occasion at the Church, with just a short time after the service for more photos & a chance to speak to a few folk.
Then it was back to the Wheyrigg for food, speeches & Ceilidh Dancing with the "Border Pilgrims"
Thanks to everyone who was there & made it all possible!!
