PIZZAS & PIG POKING
My name is Ryan & I like to touch animals... Now that confession is out of the way I can get on with telling you all about this INCREDIBLE wedding over at Lineham Farm in Leeds. & oh wow what a truly awesome venue made even more frickin magnificent by the amazing Emily & Jamie. The day began with me ensuring I stroked, poked & admired every animal residing on the farm several times before realising I actually had a job to do & I wasn't just there to annoy the fluffys.
But amidst the woodland was where the real magic began. As Jamie & Emily finished their I do's upon the dappled forest floor. The cheers were only broken by the funky tunes of my new favourite sound Back Chat Brass to lead the guests from the ceremony. Holy moly there is nothing like some funkaliscious brass to put a smile on your face. I was trying to convince the guys to come live in my house & provide a soundtrack to my most menial of tasks. Like getting cat food from the corner shop or washing up in my under crackers. Unfortunately they don't take payment in roll ups & cups of tea. Plus too much tuba would have made me feel like a fat guy so I'll have to do without for now.
Exploring the farm grounds with Emily & Jamie was just like hanging around with two old friends & through their laughter amidst the sun I felt at home. & on into the night pizza ovens were fired by the magnificent folks at Duke's Pizza who made my very own cheese laden beauty to devour. You guys are the best!
& in the colourful barn the party began with room filling melodies from the brilliant Band Of Covers. & like always I waited for the dancing to begin. & two songs passed by... & I waited some more. Then the light at the end of the tunnel came from a blue trouser wearing dance floor daemon (Photograph in set) that inspired the room to join in with his killer moves. & just like that the barn was filled with colour & music & love & laughter long into the night.
Special mentions must also go to the older couple slow dancing to Stone Roses Waterfall. That almost brought a tear to my eye. (Photograph in set) & last but no least keep an eye out for the group photograph that looks like just a normal family portrait until you zoom in to the bottom right corner. Scouts honour that Pot Bellied pig actually got to it's feet & smiled while I was taking this shot.
Anyway I have rambled long enough. Here's to Emily & Jamie & their most incredible of days.
