It was a right treat to be back at Taitlands near Settle on Saturday for Lindsay and Chris’ wedding. Had I not got hitched on the side of a mountain in Peru, it’s the kind of place where I’d choose to get married.
Lindsay and Chris wanted their day to be laid back… although it wasn’t without a bit of drama when there was a power cut in the village; a (not so) minor problem when you’ve got a bride and four bridesmaids needing to do their hair. Never fear though, the electricity did come back on in time to fire up the curling tongs.
Make-up artist Tally Bookbinder crossed the Pennines to work her magic on Lindsay, both mums and the bridesmaids. As usual she did a top notch job, dishing out valuable make-up advice and allowing everyone to have a nosey through her kit. How many bottles of foundation!?
The wedding itself was a relaxed yet stylish affair, largely thanks to Lindsay’s lovely mum, Jacky, who made the bunting, arranged the flowers, and baked the cake. I’m pretty sure she did loads of other stuff as well.
There were some really cute touches to the day, like the old record player and pile of seven inch singles which guests were invited to play. A bit of Leo Sayer, anyone? And, my favourite, the sweetie table (a ‘Jelly Bean’ or two may have passed my lips).
And Lindsay, you looked blooming gorgeous!
