Mother and Mike's Wedding Reception, Bransgore, Dorset - 20th August 1988

It's the return of a lost set of photos, handed over to Mother and Mike after being developed and not seen since until a recently visit down to Devon for a day. Anyway, it's mother and Mike's wedding reception in the garden of their house - The Willows in Bransgore. Sean is there too, and the freely-flowing supply of Kir Royale and red wine mean that before long we're all mashed. Sean even manages to puke up in the car on his way home.
