Another first. Jo and Drew’s wedding was my first at Christ Church and Park House at the University of Reading, Berkshire. I’ve worked at a few venues belonging to the University of Reading and there are still nice surprises, such as Park House tucked away among the usual functional blocks of classes and labs.
Jo got ready in University accommodation so that was my first point of call before heading off to meet Drew and the guys at Christ Church. Drew had arranged a great surprise for Jo who was delighted when a VW Kombi Camper Van turned up to transport her to the church.
After a beautiful ceremony at Christ Church and some lovely choral singing there was a brief bubble and confetti session by the van before the newlyweds headed back to Park House to start the celebrations. After a brief group photo session and some very relaxed bride and groom photos, Jo and Drew returned to their guests in plenty of time for their meal. I was then treated to some very amusing speeches, especially by Drew’s brother and best man. All too soon Jo and Drew had cut their cake and finished their first dance and it was time for me to leave them to party on into the evening.
