Wedding Thoughts

I wasn't going to get into this wedding malarkey.
But somehow it got me.
It didn't matter that they were two people I didn't know and was never likely to know, and who will have no impact on my life whatsoever (unless I need rescuing from the sea off the north-west coast).
I watched every single minute of it.
I loved every single minute of it. 
Two happy people celebrating their wedding and allowing everyone to join in and be happy too.
How can anyone be miserable about that?

Best bits

Westminster Abbey looking like a forest glade.

The gorgeous music. Especially 'I Was Glad' by Parry and 'Crown Imperial' by Walton

The Lancaster Bomber, Spitfire and Hurricane flypast.

The dress. Simply exquisite.

The 'Oh Wow!' as she came onto the balcony


Worst Bits

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie's outfits. Particularly the terrible hats. Good lord.
Do they get it from their mother?


Here is April's sampler. Hope you like it :o)
