The saying goes ‘From Hell, Hull and Halifax, may the good lord deliver us’. I’m from Halifax. He’s from Hull. Make of that what you will; maybe we should have thought twice? Maybe you should give us a wide berth from now on? Either way we married in our home country of Yorkshire. (Yes you read that right, country. If you’ve got issue with it, take it up with mi father.)
It was a proper party with pom poms, pass the parcel, prizes and pies. We had the most incredible day and my heart was full looking out across a room of so many people we know and love. It was extra special to see the faces of fabulous folk who had travelled from all over the globe, some of whom have become our nearest and dearest through the magical world of ISTA. My very good pals and ISTA artists Jez Gregg and Jess Thorpe were our magnificent, megaphone wielding masters of ceremonies in co-ordinating polka dots (as we all know it’s all about the costume). We were also joined by ISTA wonders Stephen Finegold, Debbie Kidd, Theresa Chapman and Leanne Fulcher… plus we were so lucky to have our good friend and ISTA photographer Paul Chapman take our wedding photographs — needless to say the results are incredible!
