It was New Years Eve 2012 when I went to Bath for Nic and Nigel’s unique wedding day.
I have been to a few weddings now but none of them have been like this one!
You see, when Nigel got in contact with me back in October, he said there would be four people attending the wedding; Nic and Nigel, their friend Lucy and her gorgeous six month old daughter Isabel. This was set to be an intimate occasion.
However, by mid morning I began to wonder if all weddings could be like this!
If you strip a wedding back, at its centre you have two people declaring their love for each other. And this is what this New Years Eve wedding was all about. And I absolutely loved it!
The morning was spent at the Queensbury Hotel with Nic getting her hair and nails done while Lucy and Nigel entertained Isabel, who was on her best, model posing, behaviour. There was champagne flowing, a great soundtrack to the morning was playing in the background and it was simply the most relaxed atmosphere before a wedding.
As I mentioned in the previous ‘Nic and Nigel teaser‘ blog post, I didn’t even know their real names until two days before the wedding day. As we have mutual friends, Nic and Nigel could not risk anyone finding out about the secret wedding, and this all added to the excitement of the day!
Those that get married in Bath are lucky, lucky people. The city really is fantastic and the backdrop of the golden, Bath stone buildings makes the streets feel timeless and it makes for great pictures. I hope you agree!
After the ceremony, the heavy grey December clouds held out for us as we managed to go for a stroll around some of Bath’s famous sights; Bath Abbey, the Roman Pump Rooms and finally the Royal Crescent. Nigel was particularly keen to go here and now I know why. Bath’s most famous street certainly is magical.
Nic and Nigel. You make a wonderful couple. I’ll never forget your wedding day.
