Evangelical Church

Wedding of Charlotte & Dan

On Saturday 25 August 2012 Charlotte and Dan got married at Whitby Evangelical Church. A large contingent from Wales arrived as Dan's family and friends came across for the wedding. After the rehearsal on the Friday evening the excitement was tangible. Everyone was expecting a wonderful wedding the next day and so it proved to be. The church looked absolutely wonderful for all our visitors but, as the bride entered, she outshone all the other church embellishments as she looked absolutely beautiful.

The service went smoothly and everyone enjoyed it. It was lovely to hear both welsh and english spoken at the service and this added to the sense of celebration of God's presence at the wedding. Charlotte and Dan duly became Mr & Mrs Thomas.

After the service a Cake Reception was held downstairs in the lounge and a tremendous variety of enticing cakes and cupcakes was available for all the guests. After having greeted all the guests, Mr & Mrs Thomas eventually left in a vintage, white convertable car (having been showered with confetti) and made their way to Raithwaite Hall for the main reception.

             

                                   

After all the guests arrived at Raithwaite, the photos were taken followed by a meal in the hotel. The guests were eagerly looking forward to the speeches and they were not disappointed! Each was a highlight in its own way. Dave Millar gave an excellent speech full of humour and Meirion also gave a wonderful speech. Not to be outdone, Dan not only gave a speech, but rounded it off by singing a song in praise of his new wife which was both amusing and touching! The best man then gave the traditionally humorous speech about Dan, but with a little twist in the tail. At the end of the speech 20 or so male guests rose, surrounded the top table and sang (like a Welsh, male voice choir) a version of "Danny Boy".

    

  

The celebrations were completed by the bride and groom cutting the cake. The evening finished by guests dancing to the music of a live group followed by a disco.

The main thing that everyone commented on was the real sense of Christian love shared by all and the clear testimony of all who spoke that the most important thing is that Christ be honoured. I am sure that we will all continue to pray for Caharlotte and Dan that the Lord will continue to lead them and bless them as they begin their married lives together!
