I love weddings.

The happiness, the flowers, the dress, the smiles and the cheesy toasts, the dancing…

This weekend Mr M and I drove South to Richmond for a wedding at the Bingham Hotel, a lovely place right on the river. Shame the weather didn’t quite play ball.

Our room was on the top floor with a lovely view and restful mid-century inspired decor and of nice details.

didn’t get the chance to use it, sadly…
no, I didn’t steal them. I wanted to though…

The Ceremony was held here:

The readings were lovely too, one from Winnie the Pooh and this one which was new to me, but it’s totally brilliant.

I wanna be yours by John Cooper Clarke

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
Breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
If you like your coffee hot
Let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your raincoat
For those frequent rainy days
I wanna be your dreamboat
When you want to sail away
Let me be your teddy bear
Take me with you anywhere
I don’t care
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out

I wanna be the electric heater
You’ll get cold without
I wanna be your setting lotion
Hold your hair in deep devotion
Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
That’s how deep is my devotion

… and everybody looked amazing… exquisite attention to details… and the flowers… don’t get me started on the flowers… perfection…

the bouquet!!!
… dahlias… I’m in love dahlias

We had a really lovely time.

The big rain held off for a while so we had the chance to spend time in the garden right by the water.

We danced and had waaaay too much wine… not our usual weekend at all…

don’t we scrub up well?
