The Wedding, a very happy day!

My eldest son Simon and Tracy on their wedding day 30th April
To show her beautiful dress, I think they are both looking down at Asia, Tracy's dog who was present at the wedding with flowers in her collar!

With his best man my youngest son Michael and my two grandsons. Theo who is trying to look bored and Christian. They both had a great day though probably wouldn't admit to it!
My grand daughter, Saskia is at the black eye stage being now a true teenager in all sense of the word, so her Mum tells me!!

And here I am in my big wedding hat with my daughter.. we all had an amazing day and I loved every minute of it. The food was delicious, asparagus and hollandaise sauce, breast of guinea fowl with crushed new potatoes (which I had never had before and just melted in your mouth) and lots of green brocolli spears, snow peas and julliene carrots. Desert was Eton mess and I could have eaten two or even three! The champagne flowed and DH had a far bit, well truth be told, several glasses added to a very very nice merlot.
After the wedding a whole crowed of us and the bride and groom met up in a country pub, more food!








.. Back view of my hat to show the matching feathers to my outfit!!  My SIL here as well in his bow tie. Lovely to have all the family together.
The cake was layers of lemon sponge and chocolate filling and covered with white chocolate. I did have more than one piece as Tracy said it had to be eaten up!
The table centres were a mix of greenery which had rosemary, eucalyptus, roses, fern, pinky blue anstracanthus  figs and grapes. This was given to me, hence the photo at home. I ate the figs and grapes and very nice they were too!!

We all had a wonderful day and weekend, Tracy's parents, sister and hubby, and friends were all staying in the same pub as us, in on of those pretty little villages in Surrey and we all had such fun.
Tracy and Simon looked very, very happy, a truly glorious day.

What great pictures, sounds like the perfect day, food sounds delicious and i think i might have had to have a 2nd piece of that lovely cake too. Your look fabulous in your outfit and yes, the feathers in the hat were a perfect match.
