Lynsey and Gordon held their reception at the Eight Bells pub, Saffron Walden. When we left Hedingham castle, it started to rain. About an hour later, when we arrived in Saffron Walden, it stopped raining – perfect timing!

Guests celebrating Australia all-out for 160

Lynsey and Gordon very kindly sat me on a table with their guests. As we chatted it became clear several people wanted to know the cricket score. I explained that there are a couple of things I won’t do at a wedding (because I feel they aren’t professional) and these are having an alcoholic drink or using my mobile phone. However, as it was a crucial Ashes game, I asked if it would it be OK to check the score on my phone… ‘of course that’s OK’ I was told.

My job description then temporaily mutated into sports correspondent…

Lynsey and Gordon, Bridge End Gardens, Saffron Walden

When I first met Gordon and Lynsey they mentioned there were some beautiful gardens at the back of the pub. It turns out they were Bridge End Gardens, created in the 19th century and restored to their Victorian grandeur. For the few minutes we were there, we had them all to ourselves.

Lynsey and Gordon’s full set of photos are now online.
