Family wedding

This weekend we all went to my niece, Emily's wedding to Andy. The ceremony was held in a small village church near Ashbourne, Derbyshire, and then the reception was at Shottle Hall, near Belper. The ceremony was lovely, a perfect mixture of solemnity and humour, although the weather wasn't too good, and made it difficult to get any pictures of the happy couple there. Shottle Hall was a beautiful Regency stately home, which I can thoroughly recommend for a wedding venue. There were several rooms where people could get away from the disco and chat, and the food and service was first class. It had stopped raining by the time we got there, and people were able to stand outside for photos and a glass of bubbly. Here is my family looking smart (DS isn't really seven foot tall, he's standing on the lawn edging strip!) My Mum and Dad had a great time. Even though Mum had a complete new outfit, Dad thought a new tie was sufficient preparation for his grandaughter's wedding! Good choice, Dad!Here is my glamorous sister-in-law, Rosemary looking fabulous!
My brother was busy trying to catch some good shots of the happy couple.

I don't imagine he managed to get any much better than this one!

Or this! Congratulations to Emily and Andy, and I hope they'll both be very happy together!
