I always knew Meghann and Chris’ wedding was going to be a special day from the first time we met. As we all know the weather this year so far hasn’t been very kind to us, but yet again everything just came right when it needed to.
The ceremony took place at 3:30 in the King Charles Hall at Winchester Guildhall and when Meghann entered with Peter her dad to Take That’s ‘Greatest Day’ the sun was streaming through the windows.
Following their ceremony we adjourned to the Wintonian Room for drinks and canapes with a trip out to the gardens next door for photos.
Their wedding breakfast was served back in the King Charles Hall which was transformed into a wonderful dining area. I have to say the team at Winchester Guildhall, managed by Helen, were excellent and were very helpful at all times, as were the caterers Beales Gourmet Caterers managed by Mahmoud. Everything really was lovely.
The evening party started with a very special First Dance. Meghann, with the help of friend Matt, had recorded her own version of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ as can be heard on my video below. Next Meghann had a dance with her dad Peter and then Chris danced with his mum Kim, and it was great to see them all so relaxed sharing special moments together.
We had a lot of fun throughout the evening, we played ‘Getting To Know You’ with the newlyweds, Megahnn threw her bouquet and the dance floor was busy all night. Meghann and Chris had a “Don’t You Dare” list of songs which included Gangnam Style but they relented on that particular track under enormous pressure from their guests. There was even a bit of 5-6-7-8 action!
At about midnight everybody joined Meghann and Chris on the dance floor one last time for the final few songs and then friends and family formed a guard of honour to see them off to The Wanted’s ‘Glad You Came’ – what a great day!
