Wedding Anniversary 14th Sept

(these pictures are photos of photos due to lack of digital-ness way back when!)

A long long time ago, (well 12 years to be exact) ..before the time when digital photography was of the everyday..  a 27yr old Princess (in her mind anyway) married her 28 yr old Prince (again…her mind..)

They were married next to a pretty lake in The Lake District, with 25 of their closest friends & family in attendance.

They stayed in their favourite holiday place in the week before the wedding, with 10 friends and a springer named Fern.

Mr D, (Prince) spent the morning of his wedding playing on the hills in front of his holiday home

While the soon to become Mrs D spent the morning in a nearby village sipping champagne and gathering flowers from the hills for her wedding bouquet. (confession….it may have been her Grandmother who actually gathered the flowers after insisting that no Grand Daughter of hers was getting married bouquet-less).

Off the Prince trundled though the windy roads alongside the lake in his chariot.

The Princess had other means of transportation, by way of the Steamer, across the water.

A little ceremony took place in the library of the hotel by the lake (did we mention the Princess has a love for books?)

And then they were Mr & Mrs.

Photos, and food followed. A swim in the hotel pool..(of which alas there are no photos!

The newly married Prince & Princess took their chariot to the wild west cost of Scotland, & stayed at a lighthouse (did we mention the Prince has a love for lighthouses?) where they frolicked and played along the rugged coastline.

And, ladies and gentlemen, then they went home to their little house by the sea, to live Happily Ever After.

Happy 12th Wedding Anniversary to my very own Mr D.
