Evening Wedding Reception

Andy and Gill's evening doo was at the Alton Grange, which was a lot posher on the inside than on the outside. The CAMRA contingency didn't have places at tables, as we weren't at the lunch, so we commandeered the lounge bar (with much rearranging of pot plants and comfy chairs). Real ales were available from Triple fff and the buffet was very generous, so we were more than happy. Bob arrived in a suit, we remarked upon the unusualness of this sight! Val had changed into a lime green top and black trousers, Julie had a black outfit with purple 'party cardy'. Didn't see much of Andy, think the boys were buying him drink after drink! Gill was bopping away still in her beautiful wedding dress, having to hold up the train. She insisted that we dance with her, who were we to say no? The DJ played the usual dance selection of 60s, 70s, 80s stuff with a bit of modern pop, he finished far too soon though. Highlights were Jules and Val's lesbian slow dance to Robbie William's 'Angel', Val and Nick waltzing to Wham!, and Bill and me high-kicking to 'New York, New York'.
A good time was had by all!
