Persistent July rain could not dampen the spirits of guests at David and Sarah’s Wedding.
David Williams Cooke and Sarah Rogers’ wedding took place at Pentre Mawr Country House, Llandyrnog on Saturday, July 16.

Hosts Bre and Graham made us feel welcome as we prepared to entertain the arriving guests.
Choir Sing at David and Sarah’s Wedding
The large gazebo sheltered us from the rain. It was surreal and atmospheric.
Our usual piano accompaniment accompanied by unreal rhythmic rain falling on the gazebo roof.
Some choristers were singing ‘Raindrops are Falling on my Head’ and ‘Singin in the Rain.’
‘We’ll Keep a Welcome’ set the perfect tone for the arrival of the first guests. They seemed surprised and pleased at the presence of the choir.
‘Plaisir D’Amour,’ ‘O Gymru’ and ‘Gwawrio Mae’r Bore’ were well received. The evergreen favourite ‘Myfanwy’ drew accepting reactions from our audience.
David and Sarah made their entrance to the requested ‘You Raise Me Up.’
Peter Davies giving another sterling performance on the solo verse.
The service was taken by Nerys Ellis, Registrar in the County of Denbighshire.
An overcome David then spoke, through tears of joy:
Whoops of expected delight from the audience.
During the signing of the register the choir sang ‘Some Enchanted Evening.’
Peter Davies was again in demand to sing “The Rose”.
The bride and groom led the guests out to the choir accompaniment of the stirring ‘Y Ddau Wladgarwr’.
We had many photographs taken with David and Sarah which will appear in our website Gallery page.
We thank you for the invitation and wish you every future happiness together.
