Well, I was hoping to twitter as the day progressed…until I realised that as a bride I was absolutely denied a handbag or a mobile phone. Aaaargh! I guess it was for the best. Even for how surprisingly smooth the day went (l337 project management skillz ftw!), I still had my hands full. Some of the photos in this post are courtesy of wonderful friends. Still waiting for my photographers take on the whole day, which I will post up soon.
The day started with a morning at Leeds Radissons Hotel Room, where I kept myself busy by pretending to be engrossed with the current events on CNN.
Also, at one point I spent some time hiding from the groom. Someone said that Mr H was already at the Town Hall, but when we went down we found out he actually was at the other corner of the hotel lobby. Which sent us back up to the mezzanine floor, where we hid until a faithful call, ‘The groom has left the building.’
The ceremony was held in the beautiful Leeds Town Hall.
Which was followed with a time of many photographs and photographers.
From there we headed over to Anthony’s Restaurant at Boar Lane, where a champagne (and champagne beer!) was waiting for us. When Mr H and I had to decide on reception venues, we knew that Anthony’s was the place for us. The food was excellent and the setting perfect. The service was first class even with the rooms invaded by our many guests.
Under all this chocolate and marshmallow is an actual cake. I promise!
After many glasses of red wine, greetings and speeches we took are cue to vanish. At 7 pm a taxi was waiting for us to take us to Manchester Airport Radissons Hotel, where we could relax until our flight to Manila the next morning.
