Wot so Funee? Our first wedding.

Getting married - wedding flowers are a brilliant excuse for taking lots of photographs!

Last weekend we went to a wedding. It was the first time I have been an actual wedding, where the people involved weren’t married already. M&D’s renewal of vows was awesome fun, but this was an all day long event, full of sunshine, flowers, humour, and love. I adored it!

Boys scrub up well in wedding outfits!

This was my cousin’s wedding; him being 28 and me being 9 made my Mum feel old. She talked about how it felt like only yesterday (why do grown-ups say that?) that she held him in her arms as a tiny baby, but then she’ll openly admit that she was a wet-behind-the-ears teenager herself back then, so she’s kidding herself with incongruity there, I think!

They mostly humoured each other on the odd exchange they shared through his teenage years, she having no idea what to say to a teenager, him having no real interest in more than the odd polite pleasantry. So she was tipped even further over the hill by discovering some of the man he has become through this glorious wedding day. It turns out he is funny – his wedding speech hilarous to the point of tears at some points. He is sentimental – albeit with a tip of the hat to irony along the way. And he is a gentleman when gentlemanliness is required.

Oh, and they, and his lovely bride, share a passion for cheese!

Wedding cake - If cake's not your thing, try cheese!

We got to chatting, on our return from Devon, about the importance of finding the right person to live with when me and the Bug grow up. A person who lets us be who we are, and who treats us well. For my part, I’m rather disinterested in boys at the moment, but my brother talked about his long-time crush, Eleanor.*

Bug: I’m going to have really cute babies when I get married.
Mum: So will you marry Eleanor, do you think?
Bug: I don’t think that Eleanor even knows that I still love her!
Mum: Is she still the one?
Bug: Of course! ‘Cos she’s cute!
Bug: But right now I have to tell Rachel that Kenny wants to marry her.
Mum: Really? Does he love her?
Bug: Yes… I think he loves Match Attax more though. She’s going to be really cross when I tell her that!

The best part of a wedding is kicking off your shoes to run barefoot!

  1. Oooh I love this it reminds me of one of my daughters funny conversations about marriage, I should blog it and link it up 🙂 The wedding looked lovely, that cheese cake is amazing!! Beautiful photos of the flowers too, so pretty and romantic – love it!

  2. Wow that cheese cake is amazing!!! And I am not even a fan of strong cheeses. Hahah Marriage conversations are hilarious with kids. I love this. Had me giggling. Bless their innocence. Its great to have Wots So Funee back on. Hope you had a fantastic easter.

    • Ah thank you. I think she regretted taking them off because she caught a toenail and hurt herself playing barefoot tag outside. All in the name of making new friends though 🙂

  3. love the cheese “cake”! if i ever get married again that will be my cake! love the conversation between the two too!

  4. young love, love it 😀 I’m linking up the post I wrote a couple of weeks ago but there was no linky that day, in case you think you’ve read it before 😉

  5. My daughter and her friends were just talking today about who they were going to marry. They’re 6.

  6. Heh heh heh I love listening to the things they come out with! Ozzy is still at the age where he wants to marry me – I don’t have the heart to tell him he can’t 😉

    That cheese is AWESOME! x

  7. What a fabulous conversation, you’ll have to remind Bug all about this when he’s older & getting married himself. Here’s hoping you all had a fabulous day x

  8. Stunning photos and lovely post-wow to that cake, wonder if I can have one made for a birthday-not sure husband will agree to a 3rd wedding together (we had a Greek and English wedding)!

  9. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

  10. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first
    comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too
    am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.

  11. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
