A Witherley Village Wedding

Yesterdays wedding between Katie and Gary was at the beautiful St. Peters Church in Witherley village near Atherstone, Leicestershire. As you drive towards Atherstone on the A5 it is hard to miss the notable spire of the church extending its way through the trees in the village of Witherley, it's actually 42m high! We have always wanted to do a wedding there but in 19 years this is the first time, and what a beautiful location it really is. Katie and her Father travelled from Wigston, Leicester, a journey of 25miles. Longer journeys are always a worry re timing but I was delighted when we arrived at the Church exactly on time. The church itself sits along side the River Anker which also made for a picturesque arrival for Katie and her Father in The Beauford Tourer. 

Once the ceremony was over Katie and Gary made their way from the church and were greeted by friends and family with lots of confetti! The sun shone as we offered the toast before heading off to the reception at the Mythe Barn. The lane from Witherley to the Mythe Barn is one of my favourite drives. It is usually traffic free as it winds along close to a small tributary of the river Anker. Today the sun shone and it was relatively warm for March so the hood was down all the way to the reception. We enjoyed a very leisurely pace with an extending following of the wedding guests cars. I am sure they enjoyed the drive even more by being forced to travel at 10mph for a change. They were very polite and made no effort to overtake! The Mythe Barn was chosen by the couple for its unique and high quality provision. A perfect day for a wonderful wedding.
