Over at the hotel the room was decked in white chairs with bright pink bows. In the sunshine that was beaming in the pinks were so vivid. The harpist arrived, set up and then asked for the air conditioning to be turned off. This was going to be a warm one!
Glenn had mentioned to me during our final planning meeting that he was being driven to the hotel in his friends car. This intrigued me. I waited on the steps as some of the guests began to trickle in...and then I heard the dull roar of a powerful car engine. When it came into sight, you couldn't miss it.....I bright yellow Ferrari, followed by 2 Porches. The car park was beginning to resemble the Top Gear studio. Meanwhile, the men were busily checking who had a signal on their phones and whether anyone had access to the latest scores from The Stadium of Light. It soon became clear that this wedding party were all Newcastle United supporters. More of that to follow.....
The bridesmaids arrived in a huge stretched limo followed by Judith and Colin in a beautiful new Rolls Royce. It was HUGE! Judith stepped out of the car to reveal a stunning lacy vintage wedding dress. She nervously smiled as she entered the hotel.
Outside, doves were released while most of the male side of the wedding party were becoming more and more distracted with the events in Sunderland. I gathered everyone together on the steps of the hotel for a big group photo. No sooner had the picture been taken, a cheer went up from various parts of the group. Newcastle had scored.
Judith and Glenn - have a fantastic honeymoon with Elizabeth on the Disney Cruise. Have fun and I'll see you soon.
