Leez Priory and Gosfield Hall
A busy weekend with 4 weddings at Leez Priory and Gosfield Hall. I met with the lovely Emma on Friday at Leez Priory. Emma had a 12.30 wedding and her two young boys were page boys. Emma was amazingly calm and very serene. On Saturday I met with Jenni who had been with her fiance for 16 years and they had three children, all of which were page boys and bridesmaids. Jenni was married at Leez Priory at 12.00 midday, an early wedding. Jenni had quite a large bridal party with her friends as bridesmaids so I had to start working with them all at the cottage from 7am. It was a lovely morning, lots of girls making tea and fussing around the bride. I then had to head to Gosfield Hall for my friends wedding. I did all the hair then had 15 minutes left to make myself look presentable. I ended up at the ceremony with wet hair but at least the bridal party looked beautiful.
Yesterday I had another wedding at Leez Priory. After our snowfall I had to leave extra early to make sure I was not late for the bride. It was a long and slippery journey and found my car could not make it up the hill that lead to Leez Priory. I noticed ahead two other cars also could not make it up the hill. I started to worry that the bride would wonder where I was, until I noticed that the car in the front was the Bride!! Davina was out shovelling the snow from under her wheels. Before we knew it there was a whole long line of cars all heading from Leez Priory, the staff, the florist, the bride and myself. I think Davina wishes she stayed at the Cottage the night before. Help eventually came and Davina was ready in time. She was such a beautiful bride and she said that she did not mind if her guests could not make it, all she needed was her fiance there. I thought that was a really lovely thing to say. Here are some photos of my lovely weekend with the brides. Gail xx
