Royston & Karen invited approximately 80 guests to witness their wedding at St Andrew's Church, Stoke Trister and all were invited to join the couple to celebrate their marriage at The Northover Manor, Ilchester

The Stoke part of the name Stoke Trister means place or dairy farm, which is quite appropriate as this was a wedding of two dairy farming families.

Dress code for the day was formal with the groomsmen dressed in black tailed suits, patterned white waistcoats with purple cravats and matching buttonholes.

Karen had 3 bridesmaids - her sisters Angela and Rachel and Liz who is Royston's sister.

The bridesmaids wore full-length purple satin dresses with a sweetheart necklines and shoulder straps.

Karen wore a white, floor length, layered, A-line dress with lace shoulders and sleeves and a sweetheart neckline. Karen also wore a cathedral length veil.

Royston asked his friend Ed to be his Best Man and his Ushers were made up of his friends Bradley and Tom and Gary - his bother in law to be

Unfortunately, as with so many weddings this year the wedding played a big part in this wedding. The rain kept away for most of the morning but came in during the afternoon and remained until early evening.

Despite the weather Royston and Karen had a lovely day at the Northover Manor and I was very impressed with the 1st Dance.
