Mark & Erika’s Doubletree Hilton Leeds Wedding
I joined Erika in the morning in the penthouse apartment which has amazing views over Leeds and the lovely canal that runs alongside the hotel. Erika and her two bridesmaids were all getting ready very calmly then I popped down to see Mark who was just a little more nervous attending to some finishing touches. Erika is from Sweden and it’s deemed a little old fashioned there to walk down the aisle with your dad, so they incorporated that in to their day and met up in the hotel room before walking down the aisle together. The ceremony was heartfelt and fun with one of Mark’s close friends singing ‘I Want To Grow Old With You’ which made everyone smile. Led out by the string quartet it was drinks on the balcony before we headed down for some photos. After the meal it was time for the speeches and everyone got a chance to win the lottery, no big winners though to buy everyone’s drinks! The evening guests were entertained by Casino Hire Uk and luckily there wasn’t any real money involved! After a lovely first dance it was time for the wedding band, the fantastic Stopwatch Wilson of whom two of the members are old friends of Mark’s. Some equally amazing and interesting dancing later and it was time to cut the cake and time for me to leave the party, I’m sure it was a great one too! Congratulations Mark & Erika!
