Today we were booked to dance to entertain the guests at a wedding at the Grange Hotel in Alton. Before we went in, we had to practice the Wedding Reel (not often used these days). The stand-in bride and groom look a little bemused!

Just as we started (outside) rain threatened, and after a couple of dances we were invited into the marquee. We danced a long session, including some less-danced numbers, such as the Dummer Five-Hand Reel.

The penultimate dance was the Wedding Reel, as practiced earlier. This time we had the real bride and groom!
