A Wonderful Wedding

I've been so busy with the Jubilee etc that I completely forgot to post pictures of our family wedding at the end of May. My niece Rebecca married Rhydian at the lovely Kingscote Barn in Gloucestershire. It was great to get together with family, meet Rhydian's folks, and have a happy time together. The arrangements were excellent, and we stayed overnight in a cottage at the edge of the grounds. I'm not the world's best photographer- so some of these pictures are from Kevin [the bride's dad] and Steph...

The two Mums were witnesses, and both looked stunning. The three tiered cake was cut with the Almond Family Japanese Sword, as is traditional!

George tried to get into the big red fridge in the cottage! He enjoyed the reception food. That's the hand painted card Steph made


The happy couple.  I'm really pleased with this picture I took of Fran, the bride's sister, looking truly gorgeous in her deep pink dress.
George was still getting over chicken pox, and not very settled. But he enjoyed the pop-up book I had brought for him. Here we are in our finery. I am not convinced by the fascinator. It looks too much like a bright blue chicken on my head!
We left the venue early Sunday morning, going to Denise and Kevin's for lunch then driving back to Cornerstones. 
Left hand side- the view from our cottage. Top right, me outside the cottage, bottom right, Bob and Ruth [bride's grand] sitting at D&K's looking out over the valley towards Painswick. The Cotswolds are truly beautiful.
D&K worked incredibly hard to make their daughter's wedding day so special, and make every guest feel welcomed. Thank you both! Kevin's Father Of The Bride speech was well planned, the right balance of humour and paternal pride. I liked his advice to the couple that there were four important 3-word sentences to remember in a marriage.
I am sorry
I was wrong
You were right
I love you

    1. My jacket is black - and "faux" leather. The shoes are really comfy.A charity shop bargain. I'd send them to you for your cosplay, but we have different sized feet!!

  4. What a lovely wedding, the photos are so special. I didn't really notice your 'bright blue chicken' ... I just thought how petite and happy you look.

    I agree completely about the Cotswolds, it is a beautiful part of our lovely country isn't it.

  5. That looks like the best sort of wedding. Two other things that I think are important in a marriage - please and thank you. I think that it's important to have those little courtesies and not take your partner for granted.

  6. I love weddings! Thanks for sharing those great photos of so many attractive people, yourself included in that lovely dress. Your fascinator gave you some extra height. I hadn't realized how tall Bob is. I have 6.4 for a hubby and I'm 5.5 1/2, and DS is 6.2 and DDIL probably around your height! I'm so used to being around tall people but always surprised to find others!

    1. At our own wedding in 1979, Bob stood on the ground and I stood higher jon the church steps, to enable the photographer to get"head and shoulders" shots!
