What a Wedding

Well did I go to a fantastic wedding last weekend!  It was my cousin's wedding and no expense was spared!  The day was full of surprises.  Firstly his best man turned out to be Darius of Pop Idol fame.  I didn't get to speak to him but when we arrived he was very lovely and kissed my hand!  At the wedding breakfast he serenaded the bride and groom with the string quartet playing - it was just magical!  We were also treated to a magician - can you tell me how he cut open a satsuma and retrieved from the middle of it a £10 note that one of us had just signed!! - it was brilliant!  Next surprise was in the grounds of the stately home where the wedding was held we had to move to another part of the grounds for the evening reception.  The bride and groom arrived by helicopter - how cool!  In the corner of the marquee was a chocolate fountain - I've not tried one before - but can confirm absolutely scrummy........  Later in the evening we were treated to a firework display (which I loved) and then - wait for it - Sister Sledge - yep you read that right Sister Sledge came and did a set - they were just fantastic - the place was rocking and I loved every minute of it (can you tell) LOL.  Anyway here are some photos of the day.....

Now as any crafter will know we don't like waste and at the end of the wedding breakfast I asked the bride if I could go round and collect all the name place settings as they all had on these gorgeous crystals on them - it was funny as I had some of the kids all helping me to collect them up!  I've got LOADS now so you may well start seeing them on cards very soon!!!!!!
If you've reached here - well done!!!! Hope I've not bored you, but just had to share in the magical day that I had!
Oooh must also mention that my cousin phoned me on Monday to say that he and Claire thought that my wedding card was lovely and that they could see that I had followed the colours and style of their wedding invite (which I had) and that it stood out from all the other cards that they were given and that they love it!!  How nice was that to call and thank me - and thats what making cards is all about - that compliment in itself made my day! (The wedding card in question is on a post below - its got crystals and swirls on it).

Can't blame you for getting excited - what a fabulous day it must have been. Great photos and I agree a compliment for a handmade card really makes it all worthwhile.

Love Lynda xxx
