A fairytale wedding:おとぎの国(イギリス)の結婚式 後編


先週の記事「A fairytale wedding:おとぎの国(イギリス)の結婚式 前編」の続きです。

Next it was time to sit down for speeches, champagne, wine, and afternoon

tea. Afternoon tea is a tradition in Britain but we rarely have the time

to do it properly. I felt it was a real luxury. Look at how pretty and

wonderful it was...


After eating and drinking, everyone went outside and roasted big

marshmallows on a small bonfire. We also played with sparklers (a small

firework). As it was dark, it was hard to take a good photo but please

have a look...



It was very cold outside so we then went inside the barn and the dancing

started. This is what is very different from Japanese weddings, I think.

As you know, I'm very shy so I didn't dance until the groom twirled me

round and round in a funny dance! But, I enjoyed watching everyone

having great fun dancing. Doesn't it look nice and cosy in the barn?...


It was then that I had to leave to catch my train home, so I missed having

the evening meal and cake, but here ( at the top of this article ) is a picture of the wedding cake.

It was decorated with a Lego version of the bride and groom and all their

favourite biscuits. The cake was so unique, bright, and fun, just like the

bride and groom...

This has been a very long article, but finally, I want to say a huge,

heartfelt thank you to the bride and groom. Since they walked into my life

in June, they have brought sunshine and smiles and some very special

moments. I can't imagine what I would do without them. They are two of

the most amazing people I've ever met, and I feel so touched to have been

able to share their special day at the weekend. I truly hope those of you

in Japan will come to Liverpool and meet me and these fabulous

friends someday. At the bottom of this article there is a picture of the

three of us together. (Can you see that the bride's bouquet was made from

origami flowers?)


Have you had a special or moving experience lately? Please do tell me

about it.

Until next time, take care! Best wishes, from Corrina. ☺️
