Reminiscing back to when our friends got married last Easter, it was picture perfect.
The quaint village church, the dapper groom and the beautiful bride, the church was romantically peaceful as we all listened to them declaring their love for one another.
Everyone was engrossed in the special moment when suddenly that beautiful, historical church swallowed the grooms ring! It rolled leisurely from the reverends book onto the floor and posted itself through one of the knots in the floorboards as if it had planned it's escape!
Guests gathered and shone their mobile phone torches through the gaps trying to spot the ring beneath the church floor! I don't know who was most worried, the reverend who had been responsible for the rings at that precise moment or the bride who had put a lot of effort into persuading her husband-to-be to even have a wedding ring!
Despite the despair and bustling search, the ceremony had to continue so the escaped ring had to be left and someone kindly loaned theirs to the groom. Brave faces everywhere, the ring was blessed, the reverend swiftly moved on and our friends became husband and wife. Afterwards there was a sad feeling of not wanting to empty the church, nobody wanted to leave without the ring which had potentially become a piece of history!
Nevertheless we had an amazing day of celebrations (I highly recommend Easter egg favours for an Easter weekend wedding, perfect!) and it was a pleasure to be part of our friends special day. I'm pleased to say that a week later and after much vacuuming by torch light the ring was found! The groom could wear his ring and they had a wedding tale to tell.
Congratulations to my lovely friends and a massive well done on keeping your cool! ☺
