Jon & Richelle (updated)

The Main Man.

Two weeks ago, our mates Jon & Richelle got married at the knock-out venue of Bolton Abbey, near Harrogate.  It was a glorious setting for their big day, with the Abbey sitting amongst the ruins of an ancient priory and River Wharfe running alongside it.

Thankfully, the weather just about spared the happy couple a drenching despite some pretty moody storm clouds and numerous downpours!  Unfortunately, my lovely Mrs couldn’t make it along as Jon & Rish’s day coincided with that of Al & Rudy’s down in Plymouth (typically, you wait all year for a wedding…) but it was a super day and we partied long into the evening back at the hotel.  Much thanks to Pagey who willingly stepped into Claire’s shoes to assist me with my lights, cheers fella!  (you’ve got your successful track record to thank ;O)

So to the new Mr & Mrs S – safe travels around Cambodia guys, can’t wait to hear your stories and we’ve got our fingers crossed for you that the weather out there is kinder for you than it was for us!

Wisely, the Abbey's rector insisted Shoestring be frisked for whoopy cushions and bangers.
