Busy weekend (ii): wedding festivities

On Friday Steve and Sally got married in a quiet, private ceremony. Their friends and relatives gathered on Saturday evening for a big party, feed, and dance.

As a contrast to the wedding ceremony, this time the bridal party made a big entrance – through a triumphal arch comprising climbers with ice axes and equestrians with riding whips.

Ian and Zac team climbing gear with exceptionally smart clothing - the new look for the crags?

This was a complete surprise to Sal but fortunately one with which she was very happy.

We had a great time and so much fun that unfortunately that photos for the the blog were not top priority – sorry – and so I have no pictorial record of many old friends and acquaintances present. In addition to the usual suspects, some climbers who do not often grace the blog included Max Biden, Colin Wells and Doug Scott. More importantly, here is a cake photo:

Dessert consisted of THREE puddings, hurrah!

After which there was a ceilidh featuring traditional Cumbrian dances to the accompaniment and direction of Striding Edge.

Natuarally this did not finish until the following morning, when we had bacon, eggs and coffee for breakfast back at the “Greenfoot estate”, which is why several of us failed to make it to the fell run …. see previous blog.

Very best wishes to the happy couple. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
