Did you know ??

..the reason the bride stands on the grooms left was to leave his right hand free to draw his sword, so he can protect her!

Since grooms in early Anglo-Saxon England often had to defend their brides during the wedding ceremony, the lady would stand to the left of her future husband so that his sword arm would be free. It was also customary for the groom to hold onto his bride with the left hand. Thus, by association, the bride's family and guests sit on the left side of the church.

A common sight at the Mill Forge.

A common sight at the Mill Forge is the daily delivery of wedding flowers.

The local florists arrive and we never tire of seeing the different arrangements. Bouquets, corsages, button holes, cake toppers, table arrangements and presentation baskets all make up a beautiful sight and the fragrance sets the day off to a great start.
