“It was the best of times”

Posted: November 15, 2011 in England, Off Topic

I have been distracted and fallen behind with my reading because of the recent celebration of my son’s wedding at beautiful Maunsel House, where apparently Chaucer wrote part of Canterbury Tales. After terrible weather for several days the morning of the wedding broke with the sun shining brightly on the young couple, and their guests.

The celebration may not have been quite as expensive as the country’s other major wedding in late April, but we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. A lot of champagne was drunk by all, with some having a little bit more than others. If you look very carefully on the photo you might see an Alfred Hitchcock like cameo appearance by the groom’s father.



  1. Norman – Oh, congratulations to you all! What a lovely reason to fall behind with one’s reading! Thank you for sharing those beautiful ‘photos, too.

  2. Congratulations to you and your family! And thank you for sharing this happy occasion with us 🙂
