I was certainly smiling and relieved when I got the wedding cake to the venue, set up and decorations complete!
Then it was off to church to meet up with family members not seen for a while as well as seeing my sons and their lovely families- lots of cuddles and kisses from grandchildren.
The weather also behaved - it didn't look as though it was going to at first :-)
It was a lovely service - complete with the couple's dog - Mischa! The bride of course looked beautiful.
The venue was wonderful - lots of space outside for the children to let off steam! Lovely views to enjoy while mingling with guests and enjoying a glass of Pimms or orange juice :-)
Afternoon tea followed- delicious sandwiches and yummy cakes helped down with Prosecco and/ or tea. Have to admit to having both.
Speeches were well executed and tales about the groom told by his bestman had us chuckling.
Later on there was dancing, a BBQ and more dancing and chatting and enjoyable chats.
Afterwards we stayed nearby and then had breakfast with both sons and families on Sunday morning - not often we all get to have breakfast together!
We then wound our way home. I rang my mum - still in hospital and told her about it all. We were all sad of course that she couldn't be there. On Monday of this week though my sister ( the groom's mum ) went to see her on her way for a much needed holiday. Sis and her husband were accompanied by her youngest son and his wife - who is from Chile - where they live - they came over for the wedding and were spending a few days on holiday with my sister. Mum had not seen them for a while so it was a lovely surprise for her - they took some wedding cake as well :-)!
Well I will try and add some photos now!
