Stacey and Pete's Beautiful Day

Stacey and Pete's Beautiful Day

Posted : Friday 16th June 2017

We have never had two people so laid back and unflappable as Stacey and Pete. They were calm from the minute we saw them. They had no need to panic anyway as they had their big day planned perfectly to the last detail. The Hornington Wedding Barn again was decorated wonderfully and looked beautiful for their civil ceremony. Stacey looked amazing wearing a gorgeous dress of antique lace. Her bridesmaids and maid of honour looked equally as amazing in powder blue, which brought colour to our inclement weather.


A lovely lady called Clare read out a series of appropriate verses at Stacey and Pete’s civil ceremony which again must be shared:

"He never leaves the seat up,

Or wet towels upon the floor

The toothpaste has the lid on

And he always shuts the door


She's very clean and tidy

Though she may sometime delude

Leave your things out at your peril

In a second they'll have moved


He's a very active person

As are all his next of kin

Where as she likes lazy days

He'll still drag her to the gym


He romances her and dines her

Home cooked dinners and the like

He even knows her favourite food

And spoils her day and night


She's thoughtful when he looks at her

A smile upon his face

Will he look this good in fifty years

When his dentures aren't in place


He says he loves her figure

And her mental prowess too

But when gravity takes her over

Will she charm with her I Q.


She says she loves his kindness

And his patience is a must

And of course she thinks he's Handsome

Which in her eyes is a plus


They're both not wholly perfect

But who are we to judge

He can be pig headed

Whereas she won't even budge


All that said and done

They love time they spend together

And I hope as I'm sure you do

That this fine day will last forever


He'll be more than just her husband

He'll also be her friend

And she'll be more than just his wife

She'll be his soul mate 'till the end"


With the ceremony finished it was time for the afternoon and evening to commence. The speeches began and James, Pete's long-time friend and best man, had everyone laughing at how they attended college together – of which he used the word "attended" very loosely! He described the antics and fool hardy things lads of that age got up to when growing up.

He mentioned how Pete's love of D I Y started at his Mum’s home when they arrived there after a night out and decided to re-decorate the kitchen and dining room a lovely shade of black - due to him falling asleep after putting a midnight feast in the oven. The fire service was called and reported that these two likely lads were lucky to be alive!

Talking about Pete's Mum, I have to mention the cake she made (which was still receiving the finishing touches the morning of the wedding) in fact I made a little batch of icing for her as she was a little short. It was one of the nicest I have seen; 4 tiers of 3 cakes high, decorated with luscious cream and fresh fruit. An amazing cake which everyone said it tasted as good as it looked. 

Stacey and Pete treated their guests to a delicious hog roast, provided by Happy Hogs Catering and pizza from The Pizza Guy – which is hard turn down!

Guests danced the night away to the sounds of Dean Holloway who Dj’d an array of fabulous music – everyone was up on their feet and looking like they were having a thrilling time!

The Hornignton Manor Team would like to wish Stacey and Pete a wonderfully happy married life!
