Friday night was a chance to catch up and have a glass of wine of two in the lovely farmhouse. The next morning, before the big lunch celebrations, we took the opportunity to wander around the local church and take some snaps.
Lunch was a big affair at a local pub, I had chicken liver parfait with melba toast followed by monkfish in saffron and seafood sauce with wild rice. It was yummy!!! My mum and dad designed the menus and we did the seating plan together. I wore my Ted Baker dress, Asos blazer and Kurt Geiger heels, which you've all seen before. My necklace is from Dorothy Perkins.
Then it was back to the barn for some cake, speeches and champagne. My mum organised a wishing tree, where you wrote on the labels a message for my grandparents and tied it onto the tree. My dad did a lovely speech with some funny placecards describing the top 10 tips he's learnt about marriage from my grandparents. My sister, my uncle Terry and I then had a go on the piano. My sister is really good so I was pretty much doing her a disservice at this point!
The next day we went into Burford town centre, a really quaint gorgeous village. We had a look at the church, an art gallery and my mum's old school. Oh, and the sweet shop!!
It was an absolutely lovely weekend, and a massive congratulations to my grandparents. We're going to be making them a little book with photos and the tags from the tree. They don't use the internet so luckily I can tell you about it! I've also organised a telegram from the Queen to be delivered on their big day. My mum and dad did a fantastic job and put in so much hard work organising it all. This post is for my mum, with an absolutely massive thankyou to my brilliant photographer too for capturing it all.
Happy Anniversary Nanny and Gramps!!
