Hayley and Neil

Let me start by saying that I have never, ever been to such a laid back, chilled, and easy wedding in all my life.  And in my opinion that pretty much sums up Hayley and Neil.  After Neil had proposed to Hayley (in a layby) they had spent months discussing various ideas and plans for their wedding day. Finally they decided that all they really wanted was to be married, Mr & Mrs, and to have a handful of their favourite people around to share it with them.  And that's exactly what they did.  An emotional ceremony, a hilarious walk through the streets of Norwich to the beautiful Plantation Gardens (Neil is a landscape gardener), photos, coffee (Hayley is the top female barista in the UK and owns a coffee shop), and a toss of the bouquet.  Then we all rambled over to their favourite pub The Plough, some stopping for sausage rolls en route, where we were greeted with elderflower mojitos and burgers. Good friends surprised them with flowers and cakes, and Canadian dollars were slipped into their pockets ready for their honeymoon. It was the most perfect day.  Friday and Sunday had been full of showers, but on this day the sun shone from beginning to end.  Hayley told me she always believed if you honestly think everything will be ok, it usually is.  I have a feeling Mr & Mrs Gosling are in for a beautiful marriage x
