Wednesday, September 01, 2010Rachel and Carls wedding
On Monday the 30th August I had great pleasure making the wedding bouquet for my friend Jenny's granddaughter Rachel. She was marrying Carl and they are both active in our church. Rachel is a teacher in the children's department and Carl is on the audio team. There could not be a nicer couple and it was one of the best weddings I have been to, a real Christian wedding. The brides party entered the church to Canon in D Pachelbel played be a string quartet and after a warm welcome from the minister David Craven we sang Be Thou my vision. The marriage followed, then a prayer by David Miller. We then had a wonderful time of worship with I've found a love, How great Thou art, In Christ alone finishing with Amazing Grace. Rebecca, Rachel's sister read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and an address by David Craven was followed by the signing of the registers. Whilst this was happening Janine Dyer sang The One He kept for me and Rebekah Sutcliffe who also led the worship team sang the wonderful song Beautiful.
As there was so many people there who could not be invited to the reception the wedding cake was served with tea or coffee. This was a fantastic idea as it was a chance to talk to Rachel and Carl and the families as the string quartet played wonderful music. The church Christchurch of Doncaster is a beautiful building and is being renovated for these modern times, its light and feels welcoming. And the weather stayed dry, hurray.
I with a few other helpers helped Jenny with the Church flowers, Jenny made the topiary tree's that stood out side. It will be very clear in the photo's the two sister of Rachel, and the third bridesmaid's is Rachel's cousin.
