Wedding Photographs

Our Wedding Photos

We dropped into Nigel’s this afternoon to pick up the Wedding photographs. It’s been a long wait, but definitely worth it – thanks Nigel, they’ve brought back some very happy memories of our special day.
Friends and Family: Take cover, you know what’ll be the topic of conversation next time we see you!

The Joy of Framing!

I drove over to Northampton today to pick-up our wedding sketch of Kelmarsh Hall drawn by the very talented Maureen.

To complete the job, it’s been titled and framed by Joy, the Calligrapher and looks really good! – Cheers Maureen and Joy!!!!

The Wedding Cake

The official wedding photos will follow in a few weeks, but in the meantime, here’s a shot of the cake (taken by Ann’s sister, Bev) for those of you who didn’t get to see it on the day

Our Wedding Cake

Slightly non-traditional ehh?

Final Post (No. 139)

Today was about getting the final tasks sorted.

I popped down to the Post office to drop of the packages containing the wedding cake to all those not attending. Just my luck that it was the day when they had a major systems failure! The result was queues, queues and more queues! Anyway, mission accomplished and about another 100 or so people will get their slice of cake on Thursday.

John dropped in to transport all the drink and other bits and pieces to Kelmarsh Hall. It took two journeys – and he does drive a Volvo Estate!!

From our first post on Saturday, 17 July 2010, we’re all sorted now, and signing off - a mere 139 postings later. See you all at Kelmarsh Hall on Wednesday.

Thanks from both of us, in advance, to all of you who have got us this far – you know who you are, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

Nicki’s partner, Richard is not attending as he’s down with a serious case of the sniffles and doesn’t fancy sharing!

84… 82

Kevin Perks hasn’t made such a speedy recovery from his recent operation as he thought, so he and Kerry won’t be attending.

That’s a Wrap!

It took much longer than expected, but Lee, Mum Ann and I sliced, collated, wrapped and popped-in-an-envelope, all the pieces of Wedding Cake going to those of our friends who we couldn’t squeeze into the Wedding itself – all 117 pieces! Phew!

The Cake

We took the drive over the Hockley’s today to see the Wedding Cake. It’s very non-conventional!

Michael had also baked us a separate slab that we’ll be using to send to the friends that weren’t invited but still deserve a slice!

We’ll be posting those out on Tuesday.

Love Hearts

You’ll surely remember the sweets called Love-Hearts – they were around in my ‘yoof’, but like Spangles, they disappeared from the sweet counter sometime ago – never to be seen again, not even with a new name!

Ann and I managed to locate a supplier of packets of the former, and so we bought a truck-load intending to use them at Ann’s Hen Afternoon. We forgot, so time for a ‘Plan B’ as they’re taking up valuable space at home.

We thought it would be a good idea to use the packets as paper-weights for the lottery tickets that are being placed on each guest’s place-setting.

I’m not sure we allocated anyone to do this, so maybe you could sort that out amongst yourselves?

I’ll arrange for John, our guy who’s transporting all the bits and pieces to Kelmarsh on the Monday before to add these to his list.
