Neil and Martina's Wedding, The Three Tuns, Bransgore, Dorset - 20th September 2019

Uncle Neil gets married at the Three Tuns pub in Bransgore, the New Forest village that was once home of Mother, Mike and Harrow Vineyard. The pub was an occasional haunt back in the 1980s, so it's nice to go there again, plus the weather is great and there's tons of wedding wine to mill through. The wedding itself was due to kick off at 3pm, but half the crowd - which is over from Ireland - are AWOL, so when the bridal car rocks up, it has to drive off for another ten minutes whilst taxis appear and drop off the remaining guests.
