The Wedding

This day has been amazing. After all the wet weather we have had, the day dawned bright and sunny, and stayed that way. The venue was beautiful, Fountains Abbey, and the ceremony, held in the Great Chamber of Fountains Hall, was a delight with friends and family contributing with readings that had significance to the bride and groom.




My two grandsons read 'Us Two' from 'The House at Pooh Corner' and they did a great job.





This is my younger son James and his new wife Angela.







The best man is my elder son Sean.



I'm in the middle with my daughter Louise in red and my son's partner Clare on my other side.



And this is the cake I made and iced.
I was so thrilled as the chef sent a message to 'whoever had made the cake' saying that it was the best wedding cake he had cut in a very long time. Must have been the regular feeding with brandy that did the trick.

I'm so glad that everything went so well for them. What wonderful memories they will have of their wedding day.
