Northbrook Park

Manor of Groves {Part 2}

Dancing, dancing and more dancing pretty much epitomises a Jewish Wedding reception and Barri & Emma's at MANOR OF GROVES did not disappoint.

Jewish wedding at Hendal Hall Hotel {Dena and Mark}

When I received this email from Dena earlier this year, I thought it was more than a tad bit ironic that we happen to be South African too...

Mazel tov!

As promised in the post below, here are the pictures from the Jewish Wedding Reception held at the Thistle Hotel near Heathrow. The dancing was truly amazing - and a bit scary at times!
