Lucie and Darren were married in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. They were joined by over 20 members of their friends and family who made the journey from England to share the occasion.

Before the ceremony the bridal party went to the beauty salon in the Excalibur Hotel to have their hair styled and make-up applied. The results were excellent and they all looked beautiful as the pictures elsewhere on this site will show. The men had less work to do but appeared smart and sharp in dinner jackets with custom made bow ties and matching flowers for their button holes. Polished and debonair they made their way to the Mandalay Bay.

The bride and groom each had their own dressing rooms richly decorated in dark wood with all the facilities necessary to dress, preen and prepare for the most important day in their lives together.

After the initial preparations the groom, best man and bridesmaid entered followed by the bride accompanied by her father who wore a broad smile as he walked his daughter down the aisle. The ceremony went without a hitch, the celebrant leading the proceedings with sensitivity and professionalism, choosing words which echoed the importance of the occasion and the implications of two people dedicating their lives to each other.

After drinks in the Island Bar the party went to the Trattoria Del Lupo for the reception where speeches were made, excellent food eaten, wine enjoyed and pictures taken. When everyone had enjoyed their fill and each other's company the bride and groom went off to enjoy two nights in the honeymoon suite before flying off to San Francisco for to enjoy their first ten days of married life together.

But this was not the end of it because upon their return the bride and groom hosted another reception at Cheam School, Headley, Berkshire for all their friends and family who were unable to travel to Las Vegas.
