Kate & Scott’s winter wedding at The Belle Epoque

By 19/03/2014 One Comment

Kate & Scott chose the fabulous Cheshire venue The Belle Epoque for their 1920s vintage inspired winter wedding in February. They were both keen to keep their wedding as laid back as possible, so they did things a little differently and met before the wedding for their portraits so that they were nice and relaxed before tying the knot.

The ceremony featured one of my favourite readings – the Owl & The Pussycat by Edward Lear. (Yes I am cat-obsessed and I’ve put the words at the bottom of this post if you’d like to have a read!) Kate & Scott had also chosen top classical guitarist Perfect Cadence to play too. It was just about twilight as we came out of the ceremony, so all the guests were ushered outside and given sparklers to wave around, which was a lot of fun and one guest managed to draw a heart for me!

Congratulations to Kate & Scott and thank you for having me along for your day!

Thank you also to second shooter Liza.

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat

BY EDWARD LEAR

I
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
   In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
   Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
   And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
    What a beautiful Pussy you are,
         You are,
         You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”
II
Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl!
   How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
   But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
   To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
   With a ring at the end of his nose,
             His nose,
             His nose,
   With a ring at the end of his nose.
III
“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
   Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
   By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
   Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
   They danced by the light of the moon,
             The moon,
             The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
