Wedding of the year!

So *this* is why I haven't been! Son#1 got married to his lovely lady...

Just look at those cars! The Rolls Royce delivered the groom and his men, then came back for the proud parents. The bride and bridesmaids traveled in a vintage American motor.

This is one of my favourite pics - just for a moment they hammed it up - "Shall we sign or not?" 
I'd stopped crying by that point. Just about!

Best man is son#2, bridesmaid is our lovely daughter. 

And believe me, the rainbow of crepe paper ribbons took FOREVER to hang, but doesn't it look lovely?

The tables were named after famous couples from movies...and yes, the flowers really are in a skull. Can you see the table confetti? They were cut from Harry Potter books.

The cake was SPECTACULAR. It's covered in chocolate, not icing (Choccywoccydoodah). There is a golden snitch (Harry Potter again) at the top. Well, there would be. 

 The first dance *sniffle*

We all joined in after that - I haven't had dancing blisters for decades, but I had some the next morning! Seen here with son#2

With MrNifty - don't we look pleased?

And finally - yes, of course there were meerkats! 

Congratulations to you both, I'm so proud to finally be a mother-in-law!!
