Meanwhile, Nick and his family and ushers were getting ready at Nick’s parents’ house, which was also the setting for the wedding. Alice and Nick’s love affair first started there, so the choice of venue was a very personal and sentimental one.
The wedding’s red and yellow theme was helped hugely by the beautiful rapeseed growing in the field next to the house!
Bishop Richard Holloway conducted the service beneath the yellow and red sails suspended from the house.
Time for playing in the field!
Later in the day, guests gathered at St George’s School for Girls for the evening reception.
We love it when the bride gets up to say a few words – Alice’s speech to her parents and her new husband was done in both English and Chinese.
The red and yellow theme – and Nick’s love of Lego – had inspired the wedding cake and table decorations.
After the dinner, the couple waltzed their way through the first dance…
…before they were joined on the dance floor by friends and family for some Scottish country dancing.
It was lovely and so well documented- I feel like a was able to be a part of the special festivities. Thank you for posting this! Aunt Sandy
