Just sneaking into October, as the clocks rolled back, Charlie and Tim. Time moves back, lives move forward, tears fall down faces. A quiet elegance and class sitting gently over the top.
I give you Hampshire in late Autumn. I give you warmth and love. I give you Charlie and Tim.
Some early thanks first. To Tessa and Ellena at Bury Court Barn. To JJ and his crew at Jacaranda. To Lyn at Lily-Marie. To Andi at Andi Freeman Cakes. To Hazel at Eden Blooms. To Kelly at Natasha Wiggins. A great set of people to work with. Thank you all.
To Charlie’s bridesmaids, Fiona and Danni (aka complete nutcase). Brilliant laugh all day long. To Tim’s Best Man Rob, all the way from Kentucky. A sterling job despite the previous few weeks. Respect is due to this man.
But mainly to Charlie and Tim. For not stressing about the rain after the driest October I can remember. For their warmth, their welcomes, their huge hearts, and their determination to throw a massive party for the people they love.
Two people, who I’m sure won’t mind me saying, thought they might have missed each other. That time had won. It does in the end, but not here and not today.
Instead the winner was love. Bright, burning and real. Just like Charlie and Tim…..
