George and Sara held their wedding and reception all in one venue, the Millhouse in Swallowfield. The bride was walked down the aisle by her daughter Laura, whilst students from the university she works at played ‘The Queen of Sheba’.
The ceremony was filled with music, including Chopin as the groom’s family are from Poland, and Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson, to honour the time of year. 48 guests witnessed Sara and George become husband and wife. The numbers swelled to 110 for the evening party.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a mince pie and buck’s fizz reception, followed by a sit down meal. They were served soup, a traditional Christmas dinner and a mincemeat flavoured cheesecake with rum sauce. Christmas came early at George and Sara’s wedding!
