Peace and Blessings be with you.

 

the invitation...

the invitation...

 

 That we were arriving was a given, when we arriving was to a large extent decided by the wedding of Nel and Sam, which meant that we arrived in the UK, and the English country side in Spring!

The morning of the wedding had finally arrived, like every other day though, the ritual coffee precedes any serious cognitive activities requiring higher mental faculties, like conversation for example!

Algy...

Algy finishing the last few lyrics of the wedding song he will be performing in the evening, this happened after coffee. 

 

the church...

We had arrived at the church on time, which was to say about half  an hour early.

 

Everybody else arriving at the church...

 The service was well timed, not being to long or short, that is to say long enough to get all the essentials done plus a flourish of beautiful musical performances and  poetry readings, and short enough so that all the children would get close to the end of the time that they could actually sit quietly just as the proceedings were done.
