Beautiful Wedding

August the 30th was a wonderful day for me, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Wedding of a couple who are very close to my heart. As it was not a local wedding for us, we packed the car up and went off to the Lakes. We enjoyed a two night break in Windermere and took the sights in of some lovely places. We didn't get too far when I remembered we were driving near a lovely old place that we had bought a fire surround from for our new home. It was having a holiday there until we could get a way of bringing it home, and I really wanted to take a photograph so I quickly ran in. Here it is our lovely 1920s oak surround, I hope you like it.

When we got to Windermere Miss. Poppins wanted to feed the swans on the Lake, so we walked into Bowness and the swans were enthusiastically fed.

Of course a woman needs to window shop so I had a little look round the pretty shops in Windermere.

We were attended to perfectly by Wills and Pauline at the Rayrigg Villa at Windermere, Pauline was off to pick up her award for Windermere in Bloom. Thank you for a lovely welcome and thanks Pauline for allowing me to take a couple of photographs.

The beautiful entrance to our Guesthouse, how sweet.

So, on the day of the wedding I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Of course Master Poppins decided to fall into dreamy land in daddy's arms as we were to go in, and he woke up to see the wedding vows and the next time he napped was 10 pm. The Bride looked stunning in her dress, check out her handbag and shoes.

And then it was off to the most delightful home for the reception, a walk up a pretty drive and then you were greeted with the most beautiful home and gardens.

I came across a delightful little open door, I would loved to have known what was behind it.

Congratulations to the married couple, you know who you are and I love you lots.

With my love of Daisy's I couldn't resist taking a little photograph of these little places....

So school in a couple of days, and now a question mark over Mr. Poppins' job, a big thank you to my shabby chic friends who have left lovely messages for us, means so much. He has worked for the same company for 14 years, and we have been here before although he kept his job then and now we are going to take the ride again, and find out in a couple of weeks.

A photograph to remind me what really is important and I wouldn't swap these for all the money in the world.
