Last weekend really felt like Spring had arrived and in this weekend of new life and Spring-time sunshine, Glemham Hall, which dates back to 1560, had something new to celebrate too – our first same-sex marriage. We were proud to welcome the friends and family of Daniel Mack Shand and Jason Lee Rodger on Saturday 2nd April to celebrate their marriage.
Now living in London, Jason proposed to Daniel surrounded by their friends and family at Jason’s own surprise 30th Birthday party which had secretly been arranged for him by Dan. The spontaneous (but incredibly smooth) moment was captured on camera and received over 160,000 views on Youtube, has been featured in various blogs and even reached as far as Australia! (See the video here)
The couple returned to Suffolk for their wedding day, surrounded by the very same crowd of family and friends. The emotional ceremony, where their friends sang (and cried!) them down the aisle was followed by cocktails in the rose garden, under beautiful blue skies. The happy couple met through their love of musical theatre so it was quite fitting that guests received tickets to their ‘show’ and took their seats to enjoy the performance of Daniel and Jason’s lives.
We would like to wish Dan and Jason a lifetime of happiness and health, and thank them for letting us share in their wonderful day; an historic moment for Glemham Hall.
Tori and Donna xx
