It has been an exciting morning for everyone seeing the lovely Araminta and Montmorency tie the knot! Now we join the guests as they assemble in Fairy’s garden for the wedding reception this afternoon.
Here they are, tucking into their buffet, toasting the happy couple, and discussing the bride’s mother’s hat! And here’s Fairy to tell you all about it in her own inimitable way.
Good afternoon! This all looks jolly nice and the weather is perfect!
Is everyone having a good time? Good! Help yourselves, there’s plenty to go round (hopefully).
I think I’ll have a tiny little mouthful to be going on with. I was just feeling a little peckish!
I have been meaning to say, Primrose ma’am, just how . . . burp . . . much I like your wedding hat . . . burp, ‘scuse me!
It will be your turn next, Pandora. Well done catching the bride’s bouquet by the way! Has Peregrine popped the question yet?
Are you enjoying the buffet, Auntie Pearl? This Super De-luxe spread was supplied by Fortnomnomnom & Masons don’t you know.
Now then, what on earth is going on over there?
Oh my goodness, it looks like Rev Mr Bear has overindulged yet again!
. . . yep! He’s been at the communion sherry! How embarrassing!
Just tidy up Rev Mr Bear can you girls? I’ll go check out that gatecrasher.
‘Scuse me! Yes you! Humm . . . you look familiar . . .
The little dog came with Rev Mr Bear, Primrose. They are wearing matching collars!
Come on you love mice – it is time to cut the wedding cake.
I’ll go and get things organised! Right happy couple, follow me over here, and don’t dilly dally.
Oh wow! Look at this!
Well! Did you ever see such a cheesy cake?
Hahaha! It is incredibly cheesey! Mind you, a tad more salad in it wouldn’t have gone amiss.
Come along quickly over here everyone. The Bride and Groom are cutting their cheese cake!
Hum. I wonder if these grapes taste as good as they look!
Time for the Official Wedding portrait of all the family.
It’s the first little sit down I’ve had all day. I think I will just have a little . . . snooze . . . zzz
Here’s one for the album. Over here with that camera please.
Mariella, Mariella look. It is starting to get dark and I think the happy couple are going to make a move.
Minty! Monty! Where are you going? Come back. You can’t go now – you haven’t opened your wedding presents yet. There are lots of interesting looking gifts!
What do you mean, ‘What are you doing?’ I am making myself nice and cosy in the cart. I thought I’d drive!
You didn’t think you would leave me behind did you?
Why? What? Squeak – I don’t believe it!!! WHY can’t I come on The Honeymoon too?
I WANT TO COME TOO! It’s not fair. I am going to squeem and squeem
** stamps paw **
Boo-hoo! Booo-hoo-hooo sniffle. Nobody loves me . . . do you have a tissue, please? SOB and SNORT!
Humph, I was looking forward to a super adventure, seeing new places, trying tasty new salads, and maybe catching up with some pals across the pond. It isn’t too much to ask is it – after all the hard work I have done bossing everyone about and tidying away the left over buffet salad?
I didn’t know you were planning to leave me behind. You two have had a grand day. I just feel abandoned like some poor piggy, dumped when they are not wanted any more . . .
I CAN COME?! Oh goody! Okay, yes! I promise I won’t be a nuisance and get in the way on your honeymoon. You’ll hardly know I’m there Minty.
I knew you wouldn’t really leave me behind. Hop in then! Let’s be off! Monty – why the long face?
It’s getting a bit dark. I can’t see where I’m going . . . I’ll steer by sense of smell.
Peep! Peep! Make way there! Bloomin’ roundabout, plonked in the middle of the road!
Monty, what do you mean, ‘It’s going to be a long night’?
All clear! And we are OFF on OUR Honeymoon! Toot, toot!
