Claire and Mohammad’s Wedding Day at The Holy Nativity Church and Cottrell Park on 27th July 2017

Claire and Mohammad’s wedding day was unusual in many ways.  To start with they were already married in the Lebanon with Mohammad’s family,  but were making it official here.  Then somehow we became involved with a flying veil, a pond, a big stick and muddy knees.  But as with all good fairy tales it all worked out well in the end.

Claire was getting ready at her Mum’s house and told me that sky blue was always going to be her colour for the wedding.  So along with some other very pretty colours sky blue was a big feature including in her head band, the bridesmaids dresses, the mens attire and flowers.
