So as most of you will know, due to circumstances mostly beyond our control, we had to rather drastically revise our plans for our wedding day; both the ceremony and afterwards became much smaller affairs than we originally envisaged. Nevertheless, we had a truly memorable, simple, calm and intimate service at Chelsea Old Church; were able to spend some time with immediate family back at our hotel afterwards for a few hours (including cake cutting and champagne) and had a lovely dinner with our two transatlantic travellers later.
We also had the most perfect weather, after a dire early Spring in the UK, which was a lovely wedding present. We also had many, many strangers wishing us well, when we were out and about having photographs taken, when we were back at the hotel and when we were out eating (still both in our wedding finery, which turned a few heads). Thank you also to all the drivers who stopped to let us cross roads, which was very kind.
Although we would have loved to have seen more people, in many ways the day was exactly what we wanted, with a focus on the marriage and a degree of simplicity around this. Thank you to all of the people who came – particularly those who travelled, to all of the people who would have come under different circumstances and to all of your who have sent on your good wishes on-line or by cards. Thank you also for the kind gifts that people sent us. Although we had a very small service, we definitely felt that there were many other people thinking about us on the day, which meant a lot to us.
The “official” photos will be ready in two or three weeks time and will will definitely post some of these in the Photograph Album section.
Thank you all once more
Jennifer & Peter Thomas
