One week after the wedding we held a party to further the celebrations… It was the perfect excuse for Nic to wear her dress again and for me to get suited and booted… Not forgetting of course, another chance to wear a carrot. It was a cracking night and we were so pleased with the turnout! A MASSIVE thanks for all the donations to our wishing well – thank you cards are in progress – we humbly apologise for the delay…
We had loads of positive feedback (also about the all-Vegan buffet provided by The Hutch – big thanks to Nick and Andrew for the amazing food!), so we reckon most people had a good time and you can’t ask for more than that. The cookies went down well – big thanks to Beanos for those and the cake… We ate almost all of that between the two of us. Naughty, but ever so nice. Anyway, here is a snapshot of the festivities.
One of the ways we thought it might be cool to keep the children amused was to hold a photo treasure hunt. Here are the participants’ efforts in alphabetical order. The list of photographs to capture was as follows:
LADY IN A BIG DRESS — MAN WITH A CARROT ON HIS JACKET — MAN DANCING WEARING AN ORANGE TIE — SOMEONE ELSE TAKING A PHOTO — SOMEONE PULLING A FUNNY FACE — PEOPLE KISSING — SOMEONE EATING — PEOPLE DANCING — PEOPLE TALKING — SOMETHING MADE FROM PLAY-DOH — FOOD ON THE TABLE — BALLOONS
Despite the dodgy performance of the flash on the disposable cameras, there were some funky photos produced!
The winner would be the photographer that successfully captured the most photos on the list above and is announced at the bottom of this post…
On 10/11/12 we got married! A small, intimate ceremony in Canterbury was followed by lunch at The Hutch for an all-Vegan meal… then back home to chill for a while before shopping for bread and Vitalite. It was a great day and my wife looked amazing. And yes, that is a real carrot.

Had a really nice night at James and Laura’s Evening Reception. I took a load of photos so will sort them out in due course for them, but couldn’t resist posting these.
Big congratulations to the happy couple.
It has been far too long since I posted a photograph where the subject matter is a (real) human being. This lady is über talented in all things to do with makeup application. I know this as I saw her work at the very wedding this was shot at. Semi-candid shots are easy when you have a willing participant… especially one that is used to being photographed constantly by a certain Leica freak I know 😉

Same kiss, different angle.
Rose and Russ dancing for the first time as husband and wife… almost. They actually got married three weeks before in Greece and this was the blessing, so it was the first dance on UK soil. Probably.
A wedding cake is the traditional cake served to the guests at a wedding reception (or in parts of England, at a wedding breakfast) after a wedding. In modern Western culture, it is usually a large cake, multi-layered or tiered, and heavily decorated with icing, occasionally over a layer of marzipan or fondant, topped with a small statue representing the couple. Achieving a dense, strong cake that can support the decorations while remaining edible can be considered the epitome of the baker’s art and skill. But you all knew that, right?
