"Ed and Kate is [sic] getting married"

Well, it's been a good while since I've written in here, so I'd better make amends! One of the things that was putting me off was the hassle of reformatting pictures so they'd fit between bits of text here. Fortunately, I've discovered the joy of a Gallery program that can turn a bunch of digital photographs into a rather pleasant photo album slide-show affair.

That is, for example, what I've used for Ed and Kate's wedding, which we attended last Saturday. It was held in the depths of Herefordshire - close enough to Wales for some of the roadsigns to be in two languages - and made for a three hour journey there and back.

The children, however, were very well-behaved considering the circumstances, and although we arrived 'on time' (we would have preferred to have been at least quarter-of-an-hour before the half-past-two wedding), Kate, it would appear, bucked tradition and turned up early. Beth didn't have any room to comment, mind - so did she on our wedding day!

It was a large church celebration, with wonderful music and a service led by Ed's Dad (who is an Anglican vicar) followed by photos in the grounds of the ancient church. We then drove to Kate's parents' large house, where a marquee had been put up. We were very lucky that the rain held off, although it did start to get a bit chilly at times.

Because we had such a long journey home, we had to forego the food; with - it must have been - over a hundred guests, the queue had formed long before we'd come in from giving the children a run about in the garden. But it was OK - we were home before 10pm, and with Beth driving the second half of the trip home, I could sit in the back and entertain the children through the medium of mini hair-clips (don't ask) and chocolate.

All the photos I took that day are in the photo gallery - a few of them are remarkably similar, but hopefully they capture the event to some degree.

I'm unsure whether to mention the alternative folk band OffWight Radiator's 'musical' tributes to Ed and Kate (which can be found here, although it is not recommended). I don't think I'll bother.

Well... with any luck there'll be plenty more from me here in the future!
