The Real Wedding of the Year


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 Dinosaur and the Lovely Other Dinosaur
May 169
The Bride looking radiant (as well she might having walked down the aisle in gravity-defying platform heels).
May 173
Kitty having a lovely cuddle from Rachel
May 159
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

Expert cutlass-wielding by the happy couple
May 188
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:

As sails on the pirate ships that decorated every table

They all had different cable patterns and looked fantastic

Especially when followed by a wake of chocolate coins or a treasure chest.
May 161
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!)

    Yay! Thank you for this, I really don’t have it in me to do a whole blogpost yet and these are the first piccies I’ve seen (which is quite an achievement given that most of the time we had no idea which camera we should be looking at!).

    Gravity defying heels are definitely reserved for days when the only walking I’ll have to do will be *very very slow*. Darn tooting well did it, though… *huge grin*

    There is an obscene quantity of cake left over – the chocolate, and then the evening cakes as well… If you fancy another slice, do feel free to pop round!

    Looks like a good time was had by all.

    Thanks for posting these photos! I had been wondering when it was. Everything looked so beautiful and the knitted sails are awesome! Are those blueberries on top of the top cake? Because if so, blueberry chocolate cake might be the awesomest idea ever.

    No, they were purple sugarcraft flowers – a pile on the top tier and then nestled in the folds of chocolate on the lower two tiers. And a barely-there dusting of edible purple glitter.
