Claire and Stew at The Elms

Stew and Claire married yesterday at St. Bartholemew's Church, Stouport, before gadding off to enjoy some festive, cosy celebrations at the Elms Hotel and Spa.

Having got ready at the Elms with the help of fab MUA Amy Laney, Claire and her bridesmaids, tootled off to the church. Guests were entertained throughout the ceremony by Kidderminster Male Voice Choir (Let's go Fly a Kite  - their little boy Seth's favourite song - was on the eclectic repertoire! Flippin' ace!) All the beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets, buttonholes and flower crown were by Cooks Florist

Not only were guests further entertained at the venue by singer Simon Partridge, but Father Christmas himself (the actual real Father Christmas!) popped in for a flying visit to deliver some special gifts to the little pageboys and flower girl whilst the Wedding House  gave everyone an excuse to stick on a silly hat and have a pose in their photobooth.

Getting everyone on the dancefloor was Rattlesnake Jake - always brilliant!

Not only was this my last wedding of 2017 (I'm having a Christmas this year!) but I left feeling super happy, super festive and gagging for a Baileys (because Christmas)

I had a fantastic day with such brilliant people, what better way to say goodbye to an incredible Weddings'll be time for Weddings 2018 soon enough (gulp!)

Seriously, pass the Baileys.... :D
