Afterwards there was a champagne reception in the castle garden.
The views can be quite breathtaking, even though this is mining country, not the prettier Peak District.
Emily and Paul were extremely lucky with the weather. It has been very showery every day for the last week but for their wedding they had a blue skies and a good deal of sunshine.
At 6pm we all went into the Old Stables for a lovely meal and of course the speeches, the cutting of the (absolutley delicious) wedding cake and afterwards a spot of dancing to a very good jazz quartet.
We had a great time. It was a magical day.
Pat's brother Ray has an excellent website Derbyshire Heritage where lots of information can be found about this lovely county.
