Later, as guests arrived they were invited to mix up their own confetti before walking out to the ceremony area. Given the theme of the day it was only fitting that the wedding ceremony took place outside under the shade of a huge chestnut tree by the river that flows through Morden Hall Park. It almost felt like we were in Hobbiton…give or take a few Hobbits!
Once everyone was ready, Carrie, her father and bridesmaids slowly walked from the Hall to the ceremony. Ben was beaming albeit a little nervous before the ceremony began. However, as soon as he saw his beautiful bride walking towards him and their new life together, you could see all the nerves melt away consumed by joy and happiness!
Love is the experience of crafting your own story. Carrie and Ben met through friends while teenagers and grew up together. They’ve shared many exciting moments but are especially proud of buying their first home together just around the corner from Morden Hall. I shared a little of their story at the start of their ceremony before Carrie’s brilliant brother Daniel shared a reading from The Witcher.
