‘A reet good show’; say what you like, we Brits can do pomp and ceremony with a flourish. What a lovely wedding, I ended up watching more of it than I intended. I was particularly smitten with the flowers*, the dress and with the royal mini buss.
Search engine hits to my blog have had a bit of a pre nuptial surge, from people looking for photos of the Household Cavalry (I can only assume it is wedding related) so from the archives we shall oblige
*the hand-tied bridal bouquet is dead; long live the wired bouquet: which if you know anything about the longevity of bridal bouquets you’ll realise is a total contradiction, hand-tied bouquets last longer because you can put the flowers in water after you’ve made it, but they rarely look delicate and pretty like Kate’s bouquet did and the bridesmaids carried pomanders, now there is a blast from the past I carried one at my brothers wedding in 1971, but I am so not posing a photo of that!
