at Mar Hall
At the top of the London Eye – even though I’m terrified of heights! I refused to stand up and made quite a scene, before he finally got down on one knee.
I had to say yes just to sit down again. This was after he put the ring in his car so I wouldn’t find it, then left the car keys at work – which was a ferry ride away – meaning we nearly missed our flight to London.
Also, at the bottom of the London Eye, a security guard was running a metal detector over people. Robert had to tell him before he was rumbled. I was oblivious the whole time, too terrified I think of going on the thing!
Our wedding was ivory and black themed – but it was really modern, so Mar Hall really fitted the bill with their black and white marquee and starlight chequered dance floor.
We had lots of stuff to do – we had seating areas each side of the dance floor, a candy table and photo booth. We also had candy everywhere – maybe it was more Willy Wonka themed, ha ha! All of the tables were named after sweets. For example, ‘Let the midget see the gem’…and everyone at the table had a packet of their table’s namesake.
