We've had an exciting couple of weekends - first came Emma and Paul's wedding on the 16th. A great do - the weather held, which was good because the reception was in a marquee in Emma's parents' garden! On the old tennis court grass! With photos taken in the rose garden!
Yes, it was very posh but we Caples did ourselves proud! The service was great - the bride and groom got us all singing along to "When I'm 64" at the end - and the least said about my fulfillment of the witness duties the better...suffice to say I was never where I was supposed to be! The reception was lovely - food delicious and the speeches moving without being overly sentimental. The best man described how the bride and groom originally got together - a good set up for another joke further along the speech and quite true, although perhaps not something the bride might previously have mentioned to her parents! It was a great chance to catch up with uni friends we haven't seen for a long time, and Z loved all the cuddles he got! He even got walked around the garden by a very determined little bridesmaid during the meal who managed to get him off to sleep. Hooray. In fact Z coped very well with the whole day - even an unexpected shower of red wine while he was trying to get off for a nap... The band in the evening were great too and we finished off the day with bacon and sausage butties - yum.
The happy couple...
And the gorgeous wedding cake... (someone was very handy with the sugarcraft flowers)
