First 2011 Wedding As Spring Approaches

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

With a tranquil atmosphere in an area of outstanding beauty and the island’s unique setting there is no better place to chose for a wedding celebration then Holy Island Northumberland; it is the perfect choice. The weather today on Saturday 5th March was all you could wish for, wall to wall sunshine with cobalt blue skies.

This provided the perfect setting for our first wedding of 2011 when Dave Williamson married Jane Carter at Lindisfarne Castle. Dave & Jane have been planning this very special day for the last two years and were joined by family and close friends journeying from Dave’s, Teesside and Jane’s, Cambridgeshire  for a wedding celebration at The Ship Inn. The wedding planned incorporating an extensive buffet lunch included local Holy Island crab  and shellfish, afternoon tea, scones with clotted cream and jam, finished in the evening with a personilised hot buffet meal. The only downside is that guests made a friendly comment in that pounds were added although there was some relief by being able to dance to the evening’s live music which was supplied by Northumbrian borders band “Real to Reel”
