The Real Wedding of the Year

22/05/2011

Mary Batsgirl and her Evil Stevie got married yesterday in a lovely relaxed ceremony with plenty of family and friends to cheer them on.  It was both perfect and perfectly them and H, Kitty and I had a wonderful day.

We had the chance to hang out with old friends who I hadn’t managed to see since before Kitty was born and we got to meet Clare (aka Jiva) in person for the first time which was fantastic.  Oh, and we all had our cameras there…

The Bride looking radiant (as well she might having walked down the aisle in gravity-defying platform heels).

Kitty having a lovely cuddle from Rachel

The cake – chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate! Our table had some of the dark bottom layer and it was amazing.

The obligatory wedding photo – with someone else’s back in it

Kitty enjoying yet more cuddles, this time from me (and full credit to H for taking the first ever photo in which I’m in focus!)

And now we come to the most serious set of photos.  Mary has been slaving away over her needles for months now making small purple rectangles, and we at last got to see them in all their glory:

They all had different cable patterns and looked fantastic

Especially when followed by a wake of chocolate coins or a treasure chest.

As I’ve said before it was just right and our little family wishes you all the best as you set sail together (it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t go for the obvious pun would it!)
