Well now guys and gals!
Yesterday`s wedding was truly wonderful. A small intimate wedding, with just 6 people, who mean the world to each, other was perfect.
s hen night consisted of me, in bed, with Karen and Emma sprawled next to me on Mr Pollys bed, eating the biggest pizza I have ever seen, a large bag of chips and a bottle of wine. Guess what we were watching on tv?..Oh, yeh, I just had to have a slice of pizza…don`t know what it was, but it was scrummy!
t tell the bride! The tv groom, who was a biker, had booked the ceremony on a lap of a well known race track...............Ive forgotten it`s name now…ha!
Anyway, back to our wedding…no-one was allowed to see the dress, until the day and we all guessed as to what it would be like.
With it being 2nd time around for bride and groom, I didnt expect karen to choose what she did…they were upstairs, getting ready and my morning carer, Bev, was here and I urged her to ask if Karen needed any help…she didnt.
Then, we heard the door open…Karen said
You go first…so we saw Emma
a feet, then the bottom of a long, cream tuille bridesmaids dress and I said
Wow, well if thats Emma, karen
s must be ..................Karen stayed back long enough for us to make a fuss of Emma. She looked gorgeous....shes 11…her hair was so pretty and the cream fascinator was so sweet.
Then…Karen started down the stairs…oh my…oh wow…ohhhhhhhh!
Well it really needed to be seen to appreciate just how beautiful she looked. Her dress was long, with a pale caramel underlayer and a cream lace over lay. It was strapless, with an empire bodice and a delicate bow under the bust. Then she has an ivory, lace, long sleeved shrug…the style was like Kate Middleton`s around the chest area. her hair was all pulled to one side and tousled. She also wore a cream feather and bow fascinator. My daughter looked like a picture from a top bridal magazine!!!
And do you know what she said?..
I look better than I did last time, dont I?
To say she was 23 then and is 41 now, she looked not a day older and just as beautiful, but to me she still looks 12!!!
The groom looked very handsome and I have a new son-in-law. I used to have none, then 1, then 2, then 1, then none and now we have 1 again!
The ceremony and meal after went so well…boooootiful! Mr Polly burst into tears, as he said
I do, when the registrar (who looked amazingly like Whoopi Goldberg!) asked,
Who gives Karen to be married to Mark? Mr Polly is a wonderful man, husband and dad, oh and granddad too!
And I do really recommend La Cachete, Michelin restaurant in Elland, if you`re looking for a top class venue around these parts.
My outfit was very trendy and comfy…my hair seemed to be in the right shape when I woke up, so I just waxed it up a bit and added my feather, diamante fascinator. My black and white tipped false nails stayed on too!
So, yeh, it was a great day.
