James and Lorraine had a fantastic day at Normanby Hall in Lincolnshire – Normanby Hall is a bit of a hidden gem, the drive up convinces you you’re going to end up in an industrial estate, but it’s well worth it, suddenly a countryside retreat appears and all signs of industry are gone – just the hall, deer park and on this day, James and Lorraine’s wedding.
Surrounded by family and friends, James and Lorraine were married in a ceremony at Normanby Hall and then had their reception in the same place (nay, even the same room!). James and Lorraine had obviously put loads of thought into all the details on their wedding day, going for some full on vintage sweet shops, photobooth (or at least a cunningly disguised laptop) and a real type writer to leave messages for the happy couple (watching people trying to use a typewriter was amusing – naturally, I didn’t volunteer to have a go). I posted their very unique table plan over on my Facebook page to a good response!
Most special of all though, Lorraine and James’ daughter gave a reading during the ceremony which brought a good chunk of the audience to tears – delivered like a pro as well!
Congratulations Lorraine and James!
