The Grand Wedding Reception!

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.

Well! Did you ever see such a cheesy cake?

2 Cutting the cake on the steps  (2)

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!

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.

Picnic on lawn (54)

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!

2 getting in to go (1)

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?

4 Boohoo I want to come too (2)

I WANT TO COME TOO! It’s not fair. I am going to squeem and squeem

** stamps paw **

4 Boohoo I want to come too (1)

Boo-hoo! Booo-hoo-hooo sniffle. Nobody loves me . . . do you have a tissue, please? SOB and SNORT!

4 Boohoo I want to come too (3)

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?

6 can I drive (3)

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 . . .

6 can I drive (2)

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?

20 Going Away (7)

It’s getting a bit dark. I can’t see where I’m going . . . I’ll steer by sense of smell.

Off they all go (13)

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’?

Off they all go (15)

All clear! And we are OFF on OUR Honeymoon! Toot, toot!

  1. Beautiful, hilarious, inspired. Cannot pick a favourite part.
    Another wonderful Fairy Tale.

  2. Mildred, that was simply wonderful!! You deserve recognition – Fairy too! It really was the best thing I have ever seen for ages, brilliant photos, and excellent storytelling. I loved the reception, the cake was ‘the icing on the cake’! And then the going away series of photographs, they were truly inspired, I was on the verge of tears reading that part. Thanks so much!

  3. I LOVED Miss Fairy’s tantrum. She is such a total bossy, lovable, charming and most excellent wedding planner. She deserves to go on the honeymoon. The cake was inspired, Minty’s dress was divine, and the reverend got drunk. Wonderful story and pictures Miss Mildred.

  4. Oh thank you! You are very kind! I thought you would like the cake, ffleur, my hubby made that 🙂
    It was such good fun doing it all and Fairy really is such a little hero!

  5. This is great too, I really liked Mintys dress, and the ribbons on their cart. I felt sad for Fairy getting left behind and am pleased she got to go with them in the end. Looking forward to the honeymoon pics now. Thanks.

  6. The first time I ever saw Fairy she was cuddled up in Pasquale’s arms and it brought tears to my eyes (as you know Mildred!) She looked like such a gentle little thing…Now to see her bossing everyone around and insisting she joins the honeymoon is soooo funny!

    Naughty Reverend Mr Bear, he must’ve started early, lol! 😀

  7. My favourite so far! So romantic, toot toot! SOB and SNORT, lol. I kept laughing, my brother across the room keeps giving me weird glances. That wedding dress! The wedding reception….*dreamy smile*
