It’s hard to believe that 25 Years Ago Today , 30th July 1994 , I married the Special Woman in my life ! Just over 2 years after we started dating (at her Birthday Party ) We tied the knot at St Peter’s Church , Monkseaton . It was a very special Day surrounded by our Family and friends . Music wise , Melanie walked up the aisle to ‘Sheep may safely graze’ and we left the church to ‘ The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ (We wanted to go against the norm…..) ……

Second Kiss as a wedded Couple
After the Marriage Ceremony , we departed the church in a White Roller for the Reception at The Magnesia Bank in North Shields , after a few more Photos we tucked in to a fantastic meal and a drink or two…….
Looking into the Future…….
The Love of my Life !
We headed home to have a wee rest and a change of clothes……
Slightly more relaxed……
One of us Slightly more Relaxed……
The Nightime ‘Do’ was at The Magnesia Bank as well , where we danced and drank the night away accompanied by good music and a Lightning storm over the Tyne . The ‘First Dance’ was the big hit of the year from the big film of the year , Wet Wet Wet’s ‘Love is all Around’ (we did actually ask for Love shack by the B52’s for the first dance – none of this slow dance stuff for us , still don’t know why the DJ went for the Wets….. – we did eventually get to see the faded sign by the side of the road….. ) . We went to see ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ on our honeymoon at the extremely hot , sweaty and quirky ‘Hollywood Plaza’ Cinema .
The First Dance !
The Happy Couple !
After a day’s rest on the Sunday , we headed off to Scarborough for the Honeymoon , basically seeing how many times we could visit the Harbour Bar for Knickerbocker Glorys….. We did do other stuff in between , honest……
