The Wedding. And the cake!

19 Feb

So the wedding…!

We were so lucky with the weather. It doesn’t happen often in February but, despite being bitterly cold, the sun shone!

Half of the office made it to the Registry Office in Durham in the morning to see Lindsay and Colin tieImage the knot. The service was small and lovely. The bride looked adorable, and groom looked very smart in his kilt, and the bridesmaid, who looked cute as a button, was very very well behaved.

Lynsey and Colin spent the afternoon with their close family members at Lumley Castle enjoying a meal (which I hear was absolutely lovely).

The evening ‘do’ was a lovely homemade event at a local church hall where Colin and Lynsey run a swords club. Both are pretty adept with a samurai sword, and we  were treated to a wonderful sword demonstration by members of the club, and finally Lindsay and Colin. All I can say is that when Lyndsay is wielding a sword, she is a very frightening lady. I’m a little worried about asking her to do banal office tasks for me now! 🙂 We also enjoyed a lovely Northumbrian piper (I adore the Northumbrian pipes), and then there was dancing, but not before the cake was cut (with a samurai sword of course).

The cupcakes had been made by one of the other girls in the office, and it was by complete chance that the frosting matched. It almost looks like we co-ordinated! There were two little girls at the reception, and I have never seen girls happier than when they were told that they could have a cupcake each! 🙂

Oh, and for those curious whether the purple stripes came out (because I certainly was), here is the proof, and everyone tells me that the cake was really good. So, mission accomplished, despite the 6 layer mishap (see the previous post)!
