Blurry eyed but bushy tailed following another busy weekend of fab weddings, we pointed Lily towards the rising sun and chugged in true splitty style up the A30 to Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club’s wedding fayre. You see, despite a sensible Sunday start time of 11am, we always need to arrive at least a month of Sundays before hand to set up our display equipment and plumb-in the kitchen sink!
We left home on schedule at 08:00 hours only to realise after the ‘in- transit’ flight briefing (have you packed the bows and ribbons, tickets and passports etc?) my wife had forgotten to load a vital piece of display equipment. Following a brief A30 domestic it was about turn at Camborne and with that unmistakable sense of deja vu we set off again, albeit 30 minutes later than intended.
11am arrived and somehow we had miraculously managed to clean Lily, set up our display equipment, plumb-in the hot and cold running water and change out of our civies!
Lily raring to go at 11.00 am
Customers immediately started to file through to be greeted with the tantilsing waft of the venue’s Sunday carvery getting up steam. Mid morning, and our hosts dished out menus with a 5 star recommendation to try the ‘Carvery Bap’, complete with roast tattys and a yorky – we immediately ditched our pre-packed Marmite sandwiches!

Suffice it to say we had a great day, the sun shone and Lily won the hearts and minds of many – all washed down with a bap to remember…
Sincere thanks to all at the Lanhydrock Hotel, Golf and Carvery Bap Club for their friendly hospitality and a thumping good wedding fayre.
We will certainly be ‘BAP’ in February!
