Leigh & Abi's Wedding at Ardingly College near Haywards Heath, West Sussex - 19th July 2008

A wonderful day with lots of sunshine (and only a little rain at the start) for Leigh and Abi last month. I had a thoroughly great day revisiting Ardingly College - a truly stunning backdrop to proceedings.

To see their mini slideshow simply click on the image below. To see all of their pictures, once in the slideshow view, click on the shopping basket and when prompted the password is Leigh & Abi's surname.

I started off the day at Abi's Parents' home before setting off with my trusty driver (think Bodie & Doyle / Starsky & Hutch / Dukes of Hazzard) to the Registry Office in Haywards Heath. A brief ceremony, full of smiles, and then to the College to meet up with the remaining guests and a drinks reception on the lawn of the Headmaster's Garden. The sun shone brightly at last - it seems that I am a lucky charm so far this year! The guests made their way across the quadrangle lawn, into the colourful & well decorated dining hall where they were greeted by a fabulous 3-piece band.

Great food (thanks Mr & Mrs W) and much hilarity ensued during the meal and the speeches went down well with Mike putting together a hysterical slideshow - I've included their school photo here to give you a feel... sorry you guys!

Finally, they were whisked away to Ockenden Manor before heading back for a quick sandwich and beer with friends. They let off all the balloons and fireworks before Abi & Leigh headed off into the night.

All in all a wonderful day, full of joy. It was a pleasure to be with you all. Thanks for looking after me and thanks to my fab driver... you're a star, Mum.
