Aware that Jack had a history of putting on great parties and raves in the forestry around Shropshire, I had an inkling that his and Sammy's festival wedding at Mahorall's Cider Farm on Clee Hill would be an affair to remember. We were all keeping our fingers and toes crossed for a sunny day, but I woke up on the morning to post apocalyptic scenes of storm damage - trees had fallen along my route and the view from Clee Hill was obscured by thick cloud. The drive was slow, and with Sammy's admission of there not being a wet-weather plan ringing in my ears, I'll admit to being a bit nervous about what I might find when I got to the venue.
I needn't have worried. The bride and groom, and most of their guests were seasoned festival-goers - having spent many a wet weekend up to their knees in mud, a bit of drizzle wasn't going to stop them having a good old party! After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious buffet provided by T Catering (I should know, I got in on the action too), and then took to the dancefloor for a Ceilidh! The music went on into the night with live electro swing from perfect festival wedding band The After Hours.
Sammy and Jack's amazing festival wedding has to be one of my favourites of the summer - from all the guests getting down for a boogy as the couple walked up the aisle together to all the beautiful handmade touches, not forgetting my turn as a "human drone", balancing atop a stack of haybales to fill in for the drone photographer who had cancelled because of the weather! Thanks for having me guys, it was truly memorable!
