Me, the curtains and the wedding in a field

Silly pose is to show off the butterfly sleeves. And I've got a yellow daisy in my hair - but you can't see it. I'm not sure that anyone would want curtains made of out that though ... (Note: On seeing my dress first time, Husband commented that it'd make a good pair of curtains.)

Bride and groom, Ellie and James. The bride wore a beautiful long white dress - probably the most - or only - conventional thing about the wedding.
I helped prepare the buffet and was in charge of the cheese table on the day. Bad move to put a cheese lover in that position, especially one who's supposed to be dieting.

After the food came the dancing.


After several weeks of pretty bad weather it was a blessing to see the sun, and a wonderful time was had by all.

What a refreshingly simple wedding. That gives me plenty of inspiration for ours. Beautiful pics and no you don't look like you are wearing curtains.

Love the dress and that cheese table would be my idea of heaven, though I'm on a diet too!

What a beautifully simple wedding. :)

Wow! It sure looks like it was a great wedding! My blessings to the bride and groom.

It looks like you had a fantastic time and you look very glam in that dress :-)

Hi,
Looks like a grand time was had by all and even the weather played ball for the happy couple.
I loved your "curtain" dress, it's very pretty and you looked lovely in it. Husbands, can't live with them, can't bury them under the patio without arousing suspicion!
I hope the happy couple have many blessings.
much love,
Lia xx

Very suitably attired for a wedding in the field and a few other occasions I can think of.
I'm glad it was a happy occasion for all.

Looks like a good time was had by all and the unconventional celebrations went down a treat. The teddy bear looks a bit lonely though. Did nobody ask him to dance?

Carver said...

That looks like my kind of wedding, fun and relaxed. I love the shot of you in your dress and the bride and groom look great. The food, mmmmmmmmm, I'll have some of everything.

Suburbia said...

That looks like a fab wedding! You look great in your dress (never ask a man about a dress!)

What a fun-looking wedding! Oh for good weather on my day next year. :D

After meeting on a blind date and knowing each other only 5 months, Dear Hubby and I got married 'unconventionally', too. 35 years later we're still going to the beat of our own drummers. Here's hoping the newlyweds are equally blessed!

Auditioning for the National Tea Pouring Championships, Liz..?

Very stylish Liz

MaryB said...

What fun! (Just how much cheese did you consume, BTW?)

mrsnesbitt said...

Oh the hubby comments! lol! You looked great!

Liz said...

THanks, mauigirl.

I've seen it, dina, thanks.

AS long as it doesn't rain, hulla!

Cheese should be good for diets, don't you think, akelamalu?!

THank you, nick.

THanks, cherryipe, lia and jmb.

His owner was dancing with her dad, nick. At one point I was partnert-less; if I'd noticed him - and not concentrated so hard on taking photos - I'd have given him a whirl.

Thanks, suburbia, leslie, carver, misskris.

I'm a little teapot, didn't you know, gledwood?!

THanks, jams.

Only the bits that dropped off other bits, mary. And a few chunks ...

THanks, denise.

I love your dress, Liz! Definitely not a pair of curtains:)
