Last week we had a great time covering Tanya & John’s wedding in Bolton. It was a little unusual for us for a couple of reasons. John is a farmer and his beautiful wife is Russian. Both were getting ready for their wedding day at the farm. We have never been met by a groom on his wedding day in his wellies and overalls, but John had farming duties to attend to before his marriage vows!
John’s parents, Geoff & Christine made us feel really welcome at the farm, Geoff showing us around their farm, all the new-born piglet’s and calf’s, Marie was in her element.
This special day meant that for the first time ever the farm was closed for the day.
Once ready we were all off to Bolton Registry office for the ceremony, along with Tanya’s mum Ludmilla, brother Alex and his wife Lena, all of whom had flown in from Russia.
Following the ceremony we had some time with the newly weds in Queens Park Bolton and it is clear from the images that they are totally in love.
The wedding was a small informal and relaxed affair. We all went back to the farm where a marquee had been set up, plenty of wine and great food was on offer. The kids of the various families appeared to be having a great time running through the fields.
Early evening John and Tanya along with their guests, and a further special guest, Bernhard, who had flown in from Germany, went for a celebratory meal at the beautiful Beeches restaurant in Standish.
We had a great day and thanks to Tanya, John and their families and friends who made us feel really welcome.
