The Wedding & Oxford

What a lovely weekend we had.  Saturday was spent at the wedding.  We had an early start from Liverpool to arrive in Berkshire for the 12.30 kick off.

You can almost see my new dress and cardigan behind the bride's bouquet.

I love the "something blue" button attached to the  bouquet.

The wedding cake consisted of lots of cup cakes, beautifully made with delicate sugar flowers.

And there was a very lovely touch in that every guest had a personal message left for them at the table.

On the Sunday morning my husband and I travelled to Oxford for a few days stay, to break up the journey home and make the most of the Bank Holiday.  It's one of our favourite places to visit, although we haven't been for a few years.

We walked into town along the river.  

This could be the home of one of Jane Austen's characters

We always like to visit a college or two when we're in town.  I must say that Worcester College has the prettiest gardens of all the colleges we've visited over the years.  It was so picturesque I took loads of photos there.

Rediscovering some of the quieter back-streets was lovely.

What a perfect weekend - we always say, we must do this more often - but I really think we should.


  1. Such a lovely touch a personal message for each guest, the bride look beautiful, as did you in your stunning outfit.

  2. You pictures remind me of the trip I took to the UK quite a few years ago . . such quiet beauty can be found in so many places.

  3. It does look like a perfect weekend. I love seeing all the beautiful, old, quaint buildings in England. Thanks for posting them.

  4. What an idyllic looking wedding, and your dress and cardigan look really great.
