Welcome to the wedding of Fairy’s close friend, the beautiful international model Araminta Mouse, to the esteemed Mouse about town Montmorency Mouse.
It seems like yesterday that Fairy played matchmaker, accompanying the pair on their very first date, going along to make sure Minty didn’t forget the chocolates on Valentine’s Day, and being there at the actual moment our hero, Monty, popped the question!
And now the Big Day has arrived!
Fairy is here to tell you all about it . . .
Here’s Minty with her parents in my garden posing for a family portrait earlier this morning. Minty couldn’t wait to don her wedding gown – and no wonder! Her embroidered silk dress with close fitted wrap style bodice in gold, flowing train and attractive veil, looks stunning! Designed by the talented designer and upcoming star, Mildred Mouse-Couture, it is certain to be on all the fashion show mousewalks this season!
The proud parents, The Rt Hon Plantagenet and Primrose Big-Mouse are thrilled to bits about the wedding. ‘Monty is a very suitable young mouse, a very decent sort. He is joining the company too, you know,’ commented Plantagenet. ‘We are simply delighted,’ said Primrose, ‘It really is a marvellous occasion. Do you like my hat?’
Your frock is truly amazing, Minty! I hope Marigold and Mariella, your Bridesmaids, can help you to steer the train. Now, don’t forget to smile at the camera and say cheese a lot!
Grab your bouquet and let’s be off!
Come on then! Let’s get a move on. We don’t want to keep Monty waiting at the altar – well, not for too long anyway! It’s a lovely morning for a ride in the Fairy Carriage.
Oh look at the crowds! Don’t forget to give them a gracious wave.
‘Hello!’ ‘Yes, beautiful!’ ‘Thank you!’
Now, where are those bridesmaids . . .
Oh jolly good, there you are! What lovely fur coats you are wearing!
We’re here now! I’ll get out and help you dismount, Minty. We don’t want you tripping up over your hem now do we?
Morning, Mr Plantagenet sir. Lovely day for it. Err, can I have a quiet word? Minty is feeling a little nervous . . . her whiskers are all trembly and she says she has little butterflies in her tummy. I think she feels trapped! It has all got a bit much. Perhaps a light snack would help?
Thank you for calming Minty down Mr Plantagenet, you have been a great help. Everything is going to be just fine.
I will go and make sure everyone is ready and in their place! No peeping, Monty!
Marigold, Mariella, can you check Minty’s train and take care of her bouquet? Mrs Primrose ma’am, can you and Plantagenet come forward to join us at the altar? Quickly please – there is such a lot to do! Guests . . . . we are starting now. Please check that your mobile phones are turned off! Right!
We are ready for Araminta and Montmorency to tie the knot!
Make sure you get the words right, Reverend Mr Bear! Oh, I do hope he hasn’t been at the sherry!
What’s that Rev Mr Bear? Do speak up! The Ring . . . . what RING?
Oh no, THE RING? Gulp!
Oooooo Mariella, Fairy has lost The Ring! She is usually so well organised.
Pity you’re not wearing your tummy button ring! They could have used that, Marigold!!
Excuse me Plantagenet sir, we seem to have a small problem. I would appear that I have misplaced the ring . . .
Err . . . . I won’t be a moment! I just need to go and be on my own for a while.
You carry on without me . . . sing a hymn or something.
Let’s look for it, Mariella! It can’t have gone far . . .
. . . I’ve found it! Fairy, come back, it’s all going to be okay.
Well done, Marigold! You have saved the day.
The wedding is back on! Has anyone seen Reverend Mr Bear? Did you hide that sherry, Mariella?
Shhhh now . . . it is their big moment . . .
‘I now pronounce you Mouse and Mouse!’ announces Rev Mr Bear, reverendly!
Well done! Thank you, Rev Mr Bear. You did a great job! And such a lovely service.
Congratulations everyone! Didn’t it go well?
Come along . . . it’s traditional that we cover you with flower-petal confetti!
No, I have no idea why either!
It is time to make our way to the carriage. This way, look sharp.
We are setting off for the reception now! See you all there!
Bye bye everyone – see you back at my house for the next bit. Can someone tidy up all that confetti please?
Oh Minty, you were wonderful. I am so proud of you.
I don’t suppose you brought any food with you did you?
‘Don’t sniff Plantagenet. You are not loosing a daughter, you are gaining a son.’
‘I know – that’s why I am crying!’
Gosh – that was exciting. We have all had such a wonderful time!
I’ll get my paw down – I’m starting to feel more than a little peckish. I can’t wait for the buffet!
