A Cotswolds Wedding weekend

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]fter work on  Friday, we kissed the kittens goodbye and drove almost 3 hours outside of London to the Cotswolds for a friend’s wedding. It was pitch dark when we arrived, so it was nice waking up to this sight in the morning!


There was a pond that was home to ducks and geese and in the next field over were a herd of cows. It was a brilliant weekend catching up with old friends from uni, to watch our friend get married in the prettiest of places. The church for the ceremony was only a 10 minute walk from Luckley Cottages, where we were also staying. Walking down those country lanes in heels is an achievement I feel I ought to put on my CV!


I had never been to the Cotswolds before, and it was everything I expected to be- pretty and picturesque. Where else can you pet horses on the way to the church?


People had flown from all over for the occasion- Japan, New York and Vancouver- so it was the first time in at over a decade that everyone was able to properly catch up…and recreate this old photo…


 THEN: Me, Anna and Mikie in 2002 at the student union. With plastic cups and wrist bands (and my rocking red hair)


 …and NOW: 2014, 12 years later- a tiny bit more grown up!

 There was a tonne of dodgy dancing, lots of great food, and lot of laughs. I miss everyone already!


There are about 80 different shots of this group photo, and this is the only one where we are mostly all looking normal. Well done me for keeping my eyes open.


 Shirine and Owen, it was a perfect wedding and so many congratulations to you! xxx
