On a Wedding Morning - the Garden and the Forest

Last Sunday was the wedding day of our elder son and his fiancee. Early preparations took place here at home, before everyone set off for the wedding venue, a few miles away across the Forest.

The Bride and her Bridesmaids were in the garden studio, having their hair and make up done. The Groom was upstairs, collecting his thoughts and practising his Big Speech.

It had been a hectic week, leading up to this special day. Cold and rain had given way to a day of sunshine and white clouds. I took my camera around the garden and to the Forest outside, recording this bright morning for the future.

A bumble bee enjoyed an aquilegia flower.

Woody was eating breakfast, with his friends in the background. 

The bluebells were still at their best.

Out on the Forest, wilding crab apple trees had been bursting into blossom all through the week.

Five minutes peace among the blossoms was the perfect way to begin a wonderful and memorable day!

What a blessing to have a perfect weather day for a special occasion.
Spring blossoms are so lovely and so fleeting.

You must have been up early to feed round,and take photos of the garden and up the hill a way! Everything looks so beautiful. Glad that the wedding went well and I expect you have heaved a sigh of relief now!
