I have very few photos as of yet ... I managed to take a few of 'setting up' on Friday night, nothing on the day ... then Abi and Nathan realised they had no camera to take on honeymoon with them for those all important memories ..so that's where my little camera is at the moment, honeymooning in Turkey, hopefully not with a deleted memory card ...otherwise I don't have any photos!
In honour of the wedding and as I've had to struggle to find new homes for all acquired wedding paraphenalia I've created a small wedding shrine/vignette on the kitchen window sill (like you do ...hehehe) ...
In all its vintage-shabby-chic glory ...
Ooooh you can see it better in this one ...
A closer look at my cloches of pearls and buttons ...
And not forgetting my salt shakers :)
This next photo kind of sums up the end of the day for me ... Father of the Brides new wedding suit hung up, an Angel Bridesmaid dress still glittery and sparkly with the Brides Wedding Veil safely out of reach
I received a lovely Mother of the Bride treat/gift bag from the Bride and Groom..
Full of lovely goodies to enjoy, a beautiful candle, beautiful box and bow, smelly Lush bath luxuries and a stuffed heart. I was thoroughly spoilt :) I'm rather proud of the small brown organza bag, wedding favours for the guests ... Its a small selection of Hersheys Chocolate Kisses with a teensy note inside that reads "Kisses from the Mr & Mrs" ... I'm proud as punch that I thought of it ... well found it on pinterest and adapted it ...hehehe ...Nobody else thought/found it...so I'm claiming it as my most magnificent wedding idea ... a very important contribution to the celebrations I think! ..hahaha :))
Ooooh and this is what was inside the cute box with the golden bow :)
I say was because they are all in my tummy now!! And very scrummy they were too...hahaha
The new Mr & Mrs will be home from their Honeymoon in Turkey during the early hours of Monday morning, the other Mother-in-Law is collecting them from the Airport (we dropped them off, fortunately for a teatime flight on Sunday... thought I managed that quite well ... no early morning pickup for me ...hehehe) I hope they've had a wonderful time, the last I heard from them they text'd to say their flight to Turkey had been called to board. They'll most likely be relaxing on some exotic beach, soaking up some sunshine and enjoying romantic moonlight strolls ...sigh ... and me? 22 years after my wedding, I'm in wet Lancashire with just 6 more table cloths to iron, I should just about get them finished before they get home! Hahaha ;)
Well, maybe I'll finish the ironing tomorrow, I feel a teensy bit of romancing and celebration of the last 22 years of married life with hubby is called for tonight ... snuggled up with the Angels of course! ;) A romantic take-away and a DVD. Good job I ate all those chocolates earlier ...there'd be a full on fight to finish them, with everyone picking out their favourites! And there I'll end, sharing a small pearl of wisdom to ensure you too can have a successful and happy marriage ... eat all your favourite chocolates first ... much better than sharing and ending up with the yucky toffees ... or worse still the dreaded coffee cream!! hehehe :))
