Bathampton Wedding – David and Jen
Where do you start with David and Jen’s Bathampton wedding? Let’s start with kilts. I don’t know the story of the kilt, why it’s a thing, why the Scottish love them so hard, but they do. Whenever I see one at a wedding (there’s always one at a wedding) I think to myself “this guy is going to have a good time”. I don’t know what it is, or why it is, it just is, kilts will make you enjoy any activity by 10-20%. At Dave and Jen’s wedding, about 50% of the guys were wearing kilts. When I did the math I figured that this wedding was going to equal a complete belter of a day; and I was right.
The day had the amazing ingredients of emotion, genuine heartfelt words, gentleness and detail, as well as the all important, and often overlooked ingredient of random crazy. I laughed out loud and really hard a few times. I was also shocked by some spontaneous nakedness, perhaps many people were, I don’t know.
When the day was done and I was driving home to the safety of a no-kilt environment I found myself thinking I wished I could turn the clock back 12 hours and start it all over again. The day was simply amazing.
Jen was clearly the calming factor. She modelled elegance effortlessly and had the most welcoming personality. I’m not sure stress is is something she does, but I did hear her say “oh Dave” a few times throughout the day. They both met at uni and although Jen is only about 5.3 she apparently roundhouse kicked 6.2 Dave to the face at a kick boxing session before they got together. Dave felt that was the woman he needed.
The day was celebrated on the farm of Jen’s nan in tipis overlooking the amazing valleys close to Bath. It was a completely stunning location, and to top it off the weather could not have been better.
You can probably tell this Bathampton wedding was a day to remember.
