After the wedding, there was a procession of cars and motorcycles led by Derek Hackett on his beautiful white 1800cc Goldwing, backed up by the Goldwing club of Great Britain and the 3 Amigos to the reception held at the Imperial Hall, Milford Haven.  

On arrival at the reception, Clair was there, playing her golden harp. The room was decorated beautifully in white silk flowers with hundreds of fairy lights. The food and service was first class and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
