Matthew and Gill on 2nd October 2015 at Hagley Hall.

Gill and Matthew’s wedding took place at Hagley Hall in Hagley, with it’s lovely views over rolling fields, with only 28 of their closest family and friends in attendance.Matthew and Gill 17We dashed up the motorway to this beautiful location, after watching Wales win the rugby the evening before, for my lovely husband to be best man to his lifelong friend and his own best man at our wedding all those years ago ;).  Matthew and Gill 4I have to say I felt like a star from Downton Abbey when I saw the table setting and the thoughtful and unusual details that were so in keeping with the atmosphere of the great crimson dining room.Matthew and Gill 11Matthew and Gill 15Matthew and Gill 22Matthew and Gill 14Matthew and Gill 13A few adjustments, a bit of a chat and one final practice before Gill arrived. Matthew and Gill 18Matthew and Gill 6Matthew and Gill 5Matthew and Gill 25Matthew and Gill 26Matthew and Gill 10Matthew and Gill 24Matthew and Gill 23

What could be more romantic than to have your husband-to-be play the piano for your arrival.
