Dancing #1

by

Lucy and I were wed in Oxfordshire, a small ceremony of less than five hundred people held on the beautiful rolling estate of Lord Edgar Rothmaine, Lucy's father. Our romance was a whirlwind affair - barely three months and our engagement appeared in The Times; another two months and the whole thing was organised. It was a traditional event: full regalia, horse and carriages, much dancing, choirs and a string quintet to serenade us into the evening.
Even the weather was suitably conventional and accommodating: the sun shone all day and a cooling breeze added a refreshing humour to the proceedings.

    So, I'm going to have a go at doing something in a sort of posh 1920's style. I'll probably get the style all wrong but hey, I can just delete this comment ;)

    I’m there! Nothing I like more than a string quartet and choirs at a wedding... gives it a touch of class!

    Sounds interesting, Drew. I'm sure you'll do quite well with the setting.
