Michele and Vic got married in Kendal on Saturday.
The Climbers’ Club is an amazing organisation, without it we wouldn’t have many of our best friends…
The day was as forecasted, sun, sun, and more sun. Such a welcome sight after so many days of rain, rain, a bit of sun, and more rain.
The official part of the wedding took place at Kendal Registry Office at midday. Michele and Vic looked fantastic, and very happy.
The formalities over, we all made our way over to Tarn Hows. It is the most beautiful spot with amazing views. It was just perfect for a wedding picnic. There was bit of a struggle with the parking – it’s a very popular area – but we all made it eventually.
Picnic blankets were put down, specially prepared picnic bags were handed out, and corks were popped. It was just so lovely hanging out in posh frocks and sipping bubbly in such a beautiful area. Ian took some official photos and we went for a paddle.
As I wasn’t driving, I had managed to consume lots of bubbly. I didn’t bargain on Pete wanting to get in a quick route before the evening reception! “Your lead or mine”, he said as we got to the bottom of Raven Crag Walthwaite. I looked at one of him, swayed a bit and said, “Yours, I think!”.
We got back down in time for the evening’s entertainment. I had sobered up, so there was room for more champagne.
The evening reception was held in Chapel Style Village Hall with catering supplied by Scotts Event Catering. The canapes were delicious, the roast beef was perfect, and the wedding cake ( a chocolate Croqu em Bouche) was just stunning. They do all their catering from their trailer.
We left at about 11pm, leaving Michele to the dance floor and Vic to the beer. I’d had far too much fine wine and dining and my feet were killing me.
It was a brilliant day. Thanks for inviting us.
