About once a year Poco Diablo Resort features an out of town wedding and this year we are happy to post a wonderful wedding in the English countryside. We were thrilled to be invited to Charlotte and Liam’s wedding on September 5, 2015.
The first thing we noticed is that English weddings are a little different than their US counterparts. The wedding ceremony took place at 1:30pm and at the end of the ceremony, their marriage certificate was signed in front of all of their family and friends. The bridal party and their immediate family then posed for photographs for their guests allowing everyone to capture their own pictures of the ceremonial acts.
Wedding portraits took place outdoors following the ceremony and guests enjoyed cocktails and champagne on the golf course. The wedding took place at the Mill Green Golf Course in Welwyn Garden City. Sitting down for an early dinner, each guest was served a three course dinner including a delicious entree and their choice of wine. The traditional head table was at the front of the reception room where the parents of the bride and groom sat on either side of the couple. We enjoyed the toast made by the best man as well as the father of the bride.
Following dinner, the room was arranged for dancing and the party went on until midnight. In the early evening, appetizers and wedding cake was served along side a colorful candy table. Offering custom photographs of the guests in costume, the photo booth was a very popular location that evening. The DJ brought bright colored lights and other fun items for the guests that included 2 or 3 guitars, microphone and items for those who wanted to sing and play along. It was so much fun and everyone celebrated the marriage of Charlotte and Liam. We were honored to be part of this exciting event.
