The Marriage of Mary & Matt

The weekend saw us driving up to the stunningly beautiful Peak District. There aren't really enough words to describe the beauty of this place in the North of England. It's the kind of place where you want to take in as much of the beauty as you can, with the help of a camera, so as not to forget the 360 degree vistas. So that's what I did with my little point and shoot.

See those shadows of clouds rolling over the hills? It was amazing to watch theslightly turbulent weather rolling in over the Peaks.

There were rolling hills a-plenty to make our tummies flip-flop inside us. A countryside rollercoaster. Wonderful.

The special occasion that took us to Edale was the wedding of a long-standing friend of John's, sister of his best man, Tim. 

I had the honour of baking 200 cupcakes for the occasion. Thankfully, they behaved themselves on the long drive up, and ended up looking like this:

I'd been a little worried that the colours of the frosting didn't quite match up with the bride's description, but thankfully, they matched the bridesmaid's bouquet's beautifully.

Here's the cake the bride made (along with her own wedding dress, four bridesmaid's dresses, and just about every other detail that featured in their day).

Sadly I didn't manage to get a good photo of the bride & groom together, so just the bride will have to suffice.

And here we are! {looking a little tired, nonetheless!}

We had a lovely time celebrating the wedding of friends, alongside lots of friends & family. Of course, the evening had to end with plenty of dancing,
which John took very seriously.

The End.
