Sue’s close friends and family were delighted to receive invitations to her ‘surprise’ 50th birthday celebrations at Eynsham Hall. It was only when they arrived that they realised the surprise was on them, for this was no ordinary birthday party. It was in fact, the wedding of Sue to her long term partner Andy, which had been arranged in just three weeks!
Sue is effusive about the venue: ‘We loved the setting and the feel of the place. Also, the staff – they were absolutely wonderful from the start, making us both feel very special.’ Sue looked very special too, in a 1920s inspired dress which she designed herself and which was made for her by Lesley Cutler, while lilies – the meaning of Sue’s name – featured heavily in the floral arrangements.
As well as the venue staff, the couple were also looked after on the big day by experienced toastmaster David Hunt. Andy explains that Sue had lost her dad a few months before and that David was ‘a tonic to have around.’
