Lots to do with Weddings

Just a quick post this week, I'm already late, but there has just been so much to do.

So, here we are at Jessamy and Douglas's wedding last Saturday! It was such a lovely day, sharing in their happiness and seeing all my family. Here are a couple of photos for you, and you can see me in my wedding finery Mark1.

Here's the happy couple in the grounds of Chavenage House, which was just stunning. A fantastic Tudor house, I really need to go back and see it properly, as there were 120 guests!

Here they are with part of the house as a backdrop.

A very unusual occurrence to see me out of my jeans! Congratulations to the happy couple, who I'm looking forward to seeing again at Katherine and Todd's wedding this week.

We'll be busy on Friday with pre-wedding duties and then enjoying ourselves again on Saturday!

I've bought Todd and Katherine a special good luck mascot from Wendy Morri. Wendy is a local lady who I've just met and is incredibly talented. She does beautiful patchwork and quilting and makes pretty much everything fabric based, but her love and speciality are stunning 5 inch high mohair teddies. They are wonderful, and quite adorable. I chose this little poppet:

Teddy has suede paws, and his eyes are made of agate. He is fully jointed with tiny cotter pins and and he's filled with steel shot and polyfill, so he will stand up by himself.
Wendy also makes these beautiful boxes and kindly made me a special one in yellow. I want to keep him!

Right, back to bag making and buying wrapping paper! x


  1. You look so cute! I love your hat. Aren't you glad you can get back into your jeans again and not worry about dressing up for awhile? Your bear is adorable.

  2. What a lovely old house! You have such wonderful architecture to enjoy over there!

    Keep up the good work for those poor chickens.

  4. Hi Jules,
    Perfect choice of outfit for the wedding, you look great. It is nice to dress up occasionally. Looks like it was perfect weather too.

  5. Jules you look absolutely smashing in that hat and dress! Looooooove it! Of course the happy couple look fantastic too especially with that gorgeous house behind them. Oh how I would love to see that in person!!! Droooooolllling! You know I love Tudor. That little poppet is adorable. What a clever gift. I will have to hop over now and visit with her.
