The first of two Jubilee weddings on Sunday at the beautiful wedding venue that is Brocket Hall. My sympathy was with everyone who had travelled to London for the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant to spend most of the day braving the rain. After a very busy bank holiday I have only just managed to view some of the footage from the Pageant and it certainly looked a spectacular event whatever the weather. I am sure for those who made the effort it was well worth it.
So, back at Brocket Hall we had the very same weather! It was raining when I arrived and was just the same when I left at around 10:30pm. Consequently we were confined to the house for the day. A beautiful house none the less, one of England’s finest stately homes with a long and intriquing history. Set in 543 acres of parkland with stunning views across to the far side of Broadwater Lake where the firework display was already in place for the evening guests to enjoy at 10pm. The wedding cake was an enticing chocolate affair complete with strawberries and had everyone drooling as Rebecca & Chris cut the cake and enjoyed a few strawberries as well.
The evening kicked off with some very energetic dancing with a great little band “Rollercoaster” providing some lively music. At 10pm some of the guests and the Bride & Groom ignored the rain to watch the firework display outside while other guests watched from inside “The Morning Room” which has views across the lake.
The party was starting up again as I left and turned for a final view of the house. In case you are wondering, no that isn’t my Porsche parked outside, maybe one day…
