But aren’t they great! I really love them – Mercy thank you so much! She tells me they are a design called Une Poule au Jardin by L'R de Rien – I just adore the style of it. Mercy you’ve chosen really well :) And, for the final round of Fair & Square, Mercy included some goodies for me – these are being banned from here on out, so I’m even more thankful to Mercy for including the thread holder, mesh zippered bags, gorgeous smelling cream, nail file and post its – things I can always use :)
The wedding ended up being quite big (around 180 people) and had a joint hockey-farming theme (she is a hockey player, he is a farmer). She had a beautiful off-white dress with amazing red roses picked out in sequins and beads. The church was very sweet, a tiny little local thing set in fields – very picturesque (although on a hill, so the gusting and swirling wind was NOT FUN with a dress on! At least it didn’t rain). Her father does Morris dancing, so we had lots of Morris dancers jingling around bashing sticks and waving hankies – all very celebratory! Dinner was GORGEOUS, with a choice of grilled king prawns, a hog roast, roasted lamb or BBQ’d steak, as well as lots of yummy salads and greens. I admit I tried a little bit of everything, and it was all very very delicious. Obviously still managed to find room for the fruit pavlova to finish! Then to the dancing, and all us hockey players strutting our stuff amidst the farmers and aunties and uncles – my legs are still aching. But definitely a good weekend – don’t you just love a good wedding?!
