My Brother's Wedding (Party Time)

A great weekend was had at the wedding of my brother last week. We travelled down from Bristol to Plymouth on Friday, went shopping in Plymouth city centre and then went to check all was well with my brother. After a coffee and a catch up with the gossip, we headed off for the bridge which would lead us to Cornwall and The China Fleet Club.

After putting our things into our apartments we went for a swim in the pool complete with water slide. My nephew, his wife and children had also arrived and were soon in the pool, children splashing about and the adult on the water slide.

The day merged into night and we found ourselves in the bar. Family together who had not seen each over for a while had a lot of news to catch up on and at 11pm the bar stall locked up the drink and left us to it. Of course we made sure we had stocked up on our drinks before they left.
When our drinks ran out we decided to go back to my daughters apartment and carry on our family party there with more drinks and games on the xbox connect. The Olympics played it's part in the games we played and the hurdles seem quite hard when you've had a bit too much to drink! 

Heading back to our own apartments at 3am we tried to get to sleep in order to be up by 8am to get ready for the day of the wedding.

8.30 and the bride was having her make-up and hair done. Next it was the bridesmaids turn, who both looked lovely, and then time for us all to get dressed up and make our way to the ceremony.

Both the bride and groom got very emotional which set most of us watching off, with tears rolling down the faces of nearly every woman there and many of the men.

Meal, speeches and party time again. Everyone one had a great night and it seemed to all go too fast.

It was a great weekend and there's only one thing left to say:

Congratulation to my brother Mike and his new wife Leah, the newest addition to the Whitlock family.
