AVA weddings and babies
July 18, 2013
Caroline Smith and her husband Rick have some very, very exciting news and they will certainly have their hands full as Caroline gave birth to twins on Thursday 23rd May 2013! Sam was born first weighing 5Ib 2oz and Max was delivered second weighing 6lb 15oz- Wow! Double trouble. Elizabeth, Caroline’s 2 year old daughter, has been amazing by being extremely helpful, helping mummy and daddy around the house plus generally being an all round good girl and doting sister. As you can imagine Caroline has been kept extremely busy with the two babies and a toddler to contend with, but so far Caroline and Rick are doing a fabulous job juggling all the feeds as well as amusing a two year old, however we can see that her hands will be full for quite some time. The team here at AVA wish all the very best to the Smith family!
Sally and Steve Cooper welcomed little Leo into the world back in May 2011, weighing 7lb 6oz. Leo is a little character just like his mummy and now Leo has a younger brother to play with…the breaking news from the Cooper camp is that Sally gave birth to her second mini Cooper called Jack just a couple of weeks ago. Leo’s brother, Jack, was born on 1st July weighing 7lb 5oz. He’s thriving and Leo absolutely adores him. We wish you all the best Sally, Steve, Leo and Jack.
Nick Hope and his wife Imogen had their second child Violet Winifred Jain Hope, born 25/04/13 at weighing 7lb 4oz. Beautiful Violet makes it the perfect family unit with Jonah now having little sister to play with. Whilst Jonah was not initially too interested in his baby sister, he now sees her as a real companion and a source of gurgling amusement. Good luck Nick and Imogen!
Diane Burgess our alluring Accounts Administrator became a nana for the first time as her oldest daughter Danielle gave birth to a beautiful boy called Harrison Charles on 11th March 2013 weighing 8lb 5oz in Macclesfield general hospital. Harrison is thriving and very proud nana takes every opportunity to steal cuddles from her precious little grandson.
Allan Warwick AVAs Technical Manger shared some fabulous news as he also became a grandparent for the first time to precious little Isabella. Isabella Kaitlyn Warwick, born March 2013, weighing in at 3.08kg, she is certainly the apple of her granddad’s eye. Since Isabella arrived Allan has actually taken a step back from his usual busy weekend activities of DIY, Lacrosse, photography to focus on his little granddaughter and her photogenic smile.
Di Venn our very clever Payroll Admin + Systems Developer became a granny for the third time to gorgeous little Joshua William Reay in Jan. 2013. Now Di and Paul have three times the amount of grandparent duties to fulfil – but they do it with the proudest smiles on their faces and lots of love in their hearts.
Caroline and Andy Harper welcomed little Lauren into the world in March 2012, she was one week overdue and weighed 9lb 6.5oz. Lauren is now a year and three months old, gosh time flies by so quickly! Lauren is a little cutie and is certainly a girl on the go, although she is a little sister she certainly gives Thomas (her older brother) a run for his money, as little Lauren is very active and keeps all the family on their toes.
Sarah Connolly + Ian Beirne welcomed Layla Alice Beirne into the world in Feb 2011. Layla is an extremely intelligent little girl who is also very active, requiring constant stimulation, she doesn’t like to sit still for any length of time, in fact at all! Sarah and Ian are certainly on the go the whole time with little Layla but they wouldn’t have her any other way. Layla is definitely one to watch as she is two going on twenty and a real super little character.
Weddings and Engagements
Congratulations to the following team members who tied the knot and got engaged:
Caroline Blench married Richard Smith on 21st October 2012 in a very personal and intimate wedding with her close family members, the service took place at the Quay hotel and spa in Conwy, Wales and the sun shone on their perfect day. As you can see Caroline was beaming and looked stunning, enjoying every moment of her very special day. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Smith!
Sarah Smith got married to her long term partner Paul Frodsham in a beautiful and touching ceremony at Saint Thomas’s church Henbury in on 4th May 2012. Sarah and Paul had their wedding reception in the gorgeous gardens at the Hill Tops Country House, Cheshire where friends and family laughed and danced the night away. Lots and lots of fun was had by all especially as there was a photo booth and props for all the guests to experiment with!
Rachel Edwards got married at the luxurious Hollin Hall, Bollington on 12th May 2011 to Jane Douglas in a very private ceremony with both sets of families and close friends. Friends and family travelled from all round the country to help share the special day with Rachel and Jane and they certainly celebrated in style. After a few tears of happiness and a few whiskeys everyone danced and partied way into the wee hours of the night. It was certainly a wedding party to remember, our sore feet are all testament to that!
Natalie Ebbage got engaged to her long term Austrian boyfriend Olli who is a professional masseur, a great cook and can bake a mean carrot cake. He also loves to dance and keeps Natalie on her toes.
Congratulations to all.
