Paul & Rachel's Wedding
It was the 15th of December, 2001. But things didn't start there....
First, there was the stag and hen 'do's. A time in which we said farewell to the single life.
More pictures of this particular event are on Stuart's web site
It all kicked off at an unreasonably early time for a Saturday, as we gathered at 9:30 a.m. at Hull Registry Office (we were both early, you'll be pleased to note) and before you could say "SMILE PLEASE" we were legally Mr & Mrs Ganney
And then it was off to the Holiday Inn for breakfast and the first champagne of the day.
More Precise Preparations
After this, we dashed to the reception (more later) to set up some decorations, then Rachel left Paul (a recurring theme in the first few years of our married life) to get ready. She had help, of course...
4:45pm and Stuart decides to worry Paul by announcing he's just seen a limo go by. No worries, though, as Rachel doesn't appear until 5:05.
Everything was as we wanted it, our (very talented) friends decorated and lit the Church (St. Columba's, Holderness Rd)
The music was excellent
And Credo sent us up, then sent us into married life
And suddenly it was all over
Our reception was held at Mr Chu's on St Andrew's Quay and the owners & staff had done a fabulous job for us
The excellent food was followed by five speeches (Chas, Rachel, Paul, Kath, Nigel)
We cut the cake
And then Rachel threw her bouquet...
...which was caught by Eliza, Dave's fiancee. Their wedding is next year.
The evening was rounded off with an excellent disco (thanks, Geoff)
