The wedding reception

December has arrived! The frost is delicately sprinkled in the garden, the bare trees are waving in the breeze, and I am looking at my shots from the wedding reception last night.
My friend Ali was married yesterday, and my friend Eve, and I, joined her for the evening celebrations. It was held in a local venue, filled with Christmas decorations, cheerful people, delicious food, and a live band singing and playing musical instruments. The brides dress was exquisite, and she was radiating happiness.
One wedding guest said hello to me and asked if I recognised her. "Erm, no sorry, I don't" was my reply. Apparently she was Davina McCallgirl from the hen night. "Arr," I said. " I didn't recognise you without your wig and microphone."
Eve and I circulated, drank and ate, and we couldn't help noticing the giant polar bear in the corner. I wonder if he had far to travel from?

Pictures of the day:

Friend and polar bear.

Me and polar bear.

The snowman wrapped up warm for the occasion.

So did the penguins.

Even Father Christmas was there.

Hello Patience

You can't beat a wedding for an enjoyable time! Especially a Christmas themed wedding.

See you soon!

Hi Blur

Why thank you for saying so.
I had a little last minute sewing panic with the top, as I put it on about an hour before I was due to leave and the hem had somehow come down!
Nothing is ever straight forward, is it!

Hi Nick

I think the Christmas theme really added to the magical atmosphere.
Have you got your decorations up yet, I wonder?
