And here is the setting for our day, it is a wonderful family home of a friend who has offered it to us for the ceremony and reception.

It is perfect, the service itself is being held in the back garden under a

Horse chestnut pictured here. although it is a little larger now šŸ™‚ there are apple trees along the side of the houses where a few tents will fit. Apparently there are potatoes growing that will be ready for the wedding so our dish will be a huge pot of Potato salad for the feast. Also the dad used to make legendary pickled onions so we will have the privilege to break open a jar or two as well.

Here are the apple trees in their early years.

I am so grateful to have the chance to use this house, it allows us to have a wedding of our choice rather than either never getting married or it being an impersonal registry office do.
