Mark & Adele’s wedding was held at Ashcombe Maze on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne, and then the reception was held at the Moonah Links golf course, also on the peninsula.
Cheryl and Sunil’s Wedding in February 2010: The ceremony was conducted in the grand and picturesque Shendish Manor, Apsley, and was followed by the Wedding Breakfast there.
Wedding continued: After Apsley, we were transported, some by mini-bus, all the way over to Slough for an evening of entertainment - Indian style. Then, of course, some of us had to be bussed back to Shendish.
Sophie’s First Christmas, plus some ‘scene-setting’ pictures from the week.
