Another fantastic, action packed wedding weekend! We started food preparations on Thursday, when a spice mix Helen had sent arrived in the post to be made into a marinade for their halal lamb, and didn’t seem to stop until Monday. The day itself was wonderful, Khurrum’s children had made the sweetest place names for the tables, Helen was beautiful in an embellished dress and everyone looked so happy all day. We talked wine with the father of the bride, who had supplied all the bottles from their vineyard in France, so if you do come across Chateau Astrelus, take it from us that it’s worth a try!
The celebrations carried on into Sunday, when guests were invited back for a lunch of fish pie and salad and games on the lawn. Everyone (young and old) got into the games of cricket on the lawns. It is one of our favourite things to see them being used and enjoyed!
