Friday 21st July 2000 - our wedding at Eastwell Manor   Download times...
Well, the wedding pictures are finally online!  Thanks to Zanna, Dave, Mum, Dad, Harry & Craig who sent me additional photographs on disk and by email - especially those of Eastwell Manor. Once again, Vanessa and I would like to thank all of you for coming and helping to make it the perfect day that it was. To Mum, Dad & Eddie - thanks for all your help, without which the day would not have been possible. Thanks to Vickie, Shanice, Charlotte and Oliver for sterling work in the bridal party, and to Ben & Nick for being the best best men and not being bastards in the speech (except to Tim Hucker, of course, but that's allowed!). Gail & Tara - cheers for being our witnesses as well as all your help throughout the day, and hearty thanks to Zanna and Maria for excellent readings despite being very nervous indeed.   Please note that in order to present large, high-quality pictures, this page may take almost a minute to download completely. The first few pictures will be visible quickly, but please have patience with the rest!

Alfie & Trish set up in the courtyard.

Maria & Maggie. Maria & Margaret Horton arrive at Eastwell. Maria was one of our eminent guest speakers and read a (completely non-religious) passage from The Prophets beautifully.
