I could bore you with so many photos but these few I hope will give you the flavour of the Wedding. There were so many details that made it Emma and Steves special day ... even to the lack of jackets ....I know I must have missed some of them.
Jake, Ben and Olly were the page boys ...led in by the bridesmaids ...Emmas best friend and then her sister ...and then her mum was in charge of Olly!!!!

Emma looked gorgeous and her proud Dad gave her away ....the dress was pale yellow with deep yellow petticoats and sash ...she decided finally on fresh spring flowers which her Mum made into bouquets and button holes.
Here they all are ....Alex and Neil...the best men, are childhood friends of Steves ....Olly was missing because he wanted to play with the paper cranes.(there are some to the left)
After the actual wedding we had drinks and canapes ....one of which was very hot ...so I had to have another drink!!!! mean while Emmas cousins played a little traditional music and we all chatted.
The fresh flowers of Emmas bouquet were stunning
...as were the decorations ....all made by Emma and put up by herself, and the bridesmaids with a little help from Jay and a couple of friends.
These cranes were all folded by Steve and Emma and are a Japanese token of good luck
They were every where ....I think there were a thousand in all ... of every colour and size.
Some were made from music paper to remember my husband and Emmas paternal grand parents who were musicians
The invites and order of service had the 'geek' touch and there was a hanky on each seat stamped with 'For Your Happy Tears', and a flag to wave ...all made by Emma ....probably helped a little by Steve.
Lets not forget the tables ....designed by Emma ....and the centre pieces ....made by Steve and Emma.
They were paper roses with tiny cranes sitting on them ...and a tiny Lego figure hidden in them which matched the table name.
And then there was the Wedding Cake ..... made to strict instructions.
The symbols on the cake are the language of the home planet of 'Dr Who' ....I will check the meaning but I think it is their names and something about love....as you can see there are more cranes ...and the bride and groom are Lego ...one to represent Ireland and the other England.
The meal was fantastic ...and large ... A chicken and bacon Caesar Salad ....Potato and Leek soup (to die for) ...Roast Turkey Dinner with everything you could wish for on the plate including the best ever Mashed potato ... and finally Profiteroles and ice cream.
There was Red wine and White ....and a non alcholic bottle too ...and champagne for the toasts....phew I had so many drinks ...by the time I left I had consumed about 12 ....usually 4 knocks me out!!!!
Steve is not a dancer and Emma hates being in the limelight so this all was almost painful for them but they did take the floor for a first dance
I would love to tell you more and show photos of the grandchildren ....and even one of me ...but ones of me are on Jays camera and will come on another post..
Please .....Raise a glass to the new Mr and Mrs Browning
Well done Emma .....all your hard work paid off ...it was a wonderfully different wedding ....and we really enjoyed ourselves.... thankyou xx
Take Care xx
