Some Wedding Photos ….

At last … I have some pictures to share with you……


The happy couple leaving the church

The colour’s a bit washed out above so here’s a close up of Rosie’s beautiful bouquet.  Absolutely stunning!

Then it was off to the reception.  We’d spent nearly a whole day decorating this barn in South Milton, just 15 minutes from the church ….

And it did look lovely.  Spot the embroidery hoop table names, as well as ….

Embroidered place settings and handmade napkins lovingly folded into hearts (wonder who made those?!)

All the youngsters – from left to right – Naomi was Maid of Honour, she’s Rosie’s oldest friend from school days, Sam was an Usher, then the Bride and Groom of course – Rosie met Felicia, her second bridesmaid, in Australia when they were both travelling, and Jack, Dan’s younger brother was Best Man.

Their first dance (aahhh) – a great band – jazz in the afternoon and something much livelier for dancing later!

A truly wonderful day … as Rosie was heard to remark:  “This has been the best day of my life!”



If only ….

If only our preparations could be completed as quickly as those of the little mouse wedding party …..

Who are all ready for their very special day.  Our blushing mouse bride has a beautiful dress and pearl earrings whilst her groom sports a beautiful pink rose in his buttonhole.  And we mustn’t forget their little bridesmaid, dressed in blue velvet with a lace skirt, who is taking her duties very seriously, holding up the bride’s sparkly veil.
