The stylish and handsome Alan and Tony had their civil partnership ceremony and gay wedding celebration at Parley Manor a few weeks ago. The day began at their home in Bournemouth. On my arrival Tony and Alan were still in their dressing gowns. Their flat mate and long-term friend was their bestman. There was a mixture of eagerness and nervous anticipation as everyone got ready for the big day.
When the guests started to arrive at Parley Manor, Alan and Tony greeted everyone with hugs. Lots of excitement as Tony’s family greeted each other. It was a perfect day, the weather was ideal. The couple had arranged some rather amazing flower arrangements by Simply Flower, stylish, striking and flamboyant.
The civil partnership ceremony was held in the wedding marquee. The ceremony was touching and joyful, lots of smiles with a few tears. Parley Manor is situated next to Bournemouth airport and the Bournemouth air show was on, so a variety of planes took off and few over the wedding. A drinks reception was held on the lawn followed by a wedding reception in the wedding breakfast marquee. Alan made a speech followed by the bestman. There were some funny stories which had everyone in laughter.
