The day after the night before

Shuffling in the pews. Reserved seats found. Much fiddling with fascinator. Mr F looking nervous.
The choir make their way down the aisle followed by Miss C looking radiant and beautiful on the arm of her father.
Lumps in the throat swallowed down, hymns sung, vows exchanged, paragraph 4 read with just one catch (or two).
Smiles all round as the bells peal and the photographers snap, confetti thrown, champagne sipped and shoes discarded as we dance into the night.

Today spent being quiet - reading the paper, watching the Grand Prix and removing frogs from Miss P.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs F - what a truly beautiful day, thank you.


  1. 6 days before our family wedding. I hope it goes as well as this one seems to. After all, as i explained to my niece, it is about the ever after, not the pretty dress!!

    Well done with yout reading!!

  2. What a lovely day! Miss C/Mrs F's dress was gorgeous. So pleased your reading went well. Did you wear the fascinator? x
