The Royal Wedding

As you can see, I had a good seat at the Royal Wedding - on my setee in front of the telly.
We really enjoyed the occasion and the whole morning.

We loved the dress, the bridesmaids, all of the lovely outfits and the very Britishness of the morning.


11am is very early to start on the champagne though!!

I hope you enjoyed it.

I only managed to watch the end of the service during my lunch break and got really green with envy for all my lucky British friends who live in such a beautiful and civilized country..no champagne for me though,only still water :)

I had the same view you had...except I was still in my jammies sitting propped up with pillows! Civilized...so very, very civilized. That's the best word I have to describe it, and it was LOVELY. Definitely worth getting up early!

Rosie said...

I had a TV side seat too! I thought the service and music were wonderful and the young couple delightful - the wedding dress was stunning! No champagne here but I did enjoy a mug of coffee and a ginger biscuit whilst the register was signed:)

I had a few more "guests" than I planned - we had to run out for spares! Enjoyed every minute. The music was so rousing, dress gorgeous. They both looked so happy. I want to watch it again now!

Loved every moment of it. I thought the trees in the Abbey gave it such a natural look.

Caroline said...

The best seat in the house was had by all of us, it was a gloriously British affair!

Loved the trees in Westminster Abbey and I thought that the service was really lovely too. I adored the dress and thought that the Queen looked quite fabulous too. As did Lady Sarah Chatto.

Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend. Anyway, what is wrong with a champagne breakfasts... hic...

Love,

Caroline

Over here in Ireland I too watched every minute on telly. It was marvelous, every minute, every detail, and London looked so good. Yes, it made me proud to be British too. I waited until 11am then broke open a bottle of bubbly! I thought William & Harry looked so handsome and I couldn't help but think of their mother, and how proud Diana would have been of them and rightly so.

Dianne said...

It was just perfect - I cried! they are both so sweet.

I loved it! So many stunning moments but for me, actually, Kate's brother reading so beautifully from St Paul's Letter to the Romans was the highlight.

Mister D said...

They have class choosing the same hymns as we had at our wedding in Wales last year - the marriage ceremony was the beautiful - made me feel good to be British ( for once ) god bless 'em this is what the country needs

Donna said...

It was such a lovely event - a breathe of fresh air for a weary world! I SO regretted that, generations ago, my relatives chose to leave England and come to the New World!! My friends and I were with all of you in spirit!

diane b said...

Yes we watched too. Only the English can put on such a show of pomp and ceremony. Loved the colour, the history and the exuberance of the crowds.

bad penny said...

Yes I did enjoy it- what a happy day. Hubby is not of the same opinion - he would scale down the Royal family. We argued about it over the ten o'clock news when the highlights were on !

lazylol said...

The settee was the place to be to watch the wedding. I really enjoyed whole thing, it was fab!

Jenny said...

I loved it all, the horses, the music and of course the dress. Feeling very proud.

summerfete said...

Here's hoping they truly have a happy ever after,
