Matt and Emma's Wedding, Quendon, Essex - 7th November 2008

It's a Friday, so a half-day holiday is taken for the short trip down to Essex, near Stansted, for Matt and Emma's wedding. We have special dispensation to bring Fred (on account of him being only six weeks old) as he's lashed down to his basinette and can't run around the place terrorising the other guests

Walking up the aisle

All the guests filter out of the room

Meanwhile, we borrow one of the bedrooms so that Fred can be fed

Outside, by the fountain, more photos are taken
