Here comes the bride!

I have just returned from one of the best weekends of summer, a beautiful weekend away in Lincolnshire at a family wedding. I don't think I've ever told you how much I love weddings but they make the best days, and they're even better when the sun is beaming down (sorry men, but this is the one day you have to grin and bear it being suited and booted). It all began on Friday when we packed up the car and started our two and a half hour road trip North {the second road trip Dudley has made this month, you can read about the first here!} 

As we couldn't check into our lodge, yepp lodge, until 4pm we had arranged to meet the other brothers & wife/girlfriend at Sutton on Sea, a small little town with strips of sand, salt water and seashells. The next few hours were spent eating lunch, sunbathing, shell picking, playing french cricket and an American football game I'm still yet to understand the rules. After being dragged away, I'm a beach baby, we headed off  to find some mountainous speed bumps and windy country lanes. As wild twenty-something year olds we passed the next 8 hours cooking thai curry, recovering jeans from the washing machine and playing a very competitive game of Settlers of Catan. 

The next morning was wedding day and what could be better than waking up to blue skies! The ceremony was held in the village church followed by a wonderful reception at The Mill House. The food was delicious and the decor was dazzling! Us party animals were seated in the center of the dance floor as the party rings,(if only they had seen us the night before) but we did manage to uncover the young beings inside us spending the night dancing like nobody was watching with copious amounts of wine, no hangover incurred this morning though, result

To round off the wedding we headed to a BBQ with more alcohol, lots more food, a bouncy castle and lots of reminiscing from the day before! We also managed to squeeze in a visit to a 'pick-your-own-fruit' farm, the strawberries were out of season however we filled a punnet of raspberries for just £2.30, what a bargin!

  1. Glad to know about this information on wedding. Couple of weeks ago, I arranged my cousin’s wedding reception at one of exemplary wedding venues and hired a reputed party caterer for preparing amazing food. He did an excellent job.
