A September Wedding.

Yesterday I was a bridesmaid for my good friend Arwen who’m I have known since primary school. It was an amazing day and I feel so honored to have been chosen to share in her and Ian’s celebrations. I thought I would quickly show you a couple of piccies from the wedding….before I go on my holidays. 🙂

The wedding was held in the pretty Ribble valley village of Slaidburn. It was the first nuptials in the church there for two years. The wedding breakfast and evening reception were both held in the newly built village Hall and the catering was done by the local Hark To Bounty pub. So it was a real Village celebration.

Friends for many years. :)

Arwen wore a stunning gown from Orchid Bridal designs in Clitheroe and Vicky and I wore beautiful azure blue dresses from Amelias in Clitheroe. We loved the colour so much. I am very tempted to get mine shortened so I can wear it in the future as a cocktail type dress. If I ever go anywhere posh enough of course !

Hope you liked the pictures. 🙂

Thanks to Emiline Drachenberg and Sarah Allen for the photographs.

My Bank Holiday Wknd.

Yay a Bank Holiday Weekend. What a great way to start a whole week off! Friday night we went to a friends wedding do.The bride and groom looked so happy and everything looked perfect. My beautiful sister had been a guest there all day and she looked so elegant in her pretty blue Jane Norman dress.


The Wedding cake looked absolutely divine. And tasted good too. : )
On Saturday we headed to a craft fair and then to the Castle grounds where we were supposed to be treated to a world war two Spitfire flyover. Unfortunately the rain put a stop to that. Nice yarn bombed tree though.

In the Evening we were treated to a torchlight procession through the town with lots of brightly decorated floats and the castle was all lit up. The Ribble Valley is home to two Olympic medalists John Schofield and Samantha Murray who braved the rain to lead the procession. Despite the weather there was a brilliant turnout.

Our Very own Olympic Medalists.


On Sunday we headed back to the Castle grounds to the annual proms in the park which is always an excuse for a few glasses of wine and a picnic. : ) I sometimes forget what a beautiful place we live in and its times like these I really appreciate my home here.


So a great time was had by all!
