Another day, another wedding

We didn't join in a street party for the royal nuptials, but we had a big celebration lined up for the following day. A wedding in our extended family, and what a wonderful occasion it turned out to be. On a beautifully sunny day, a Routemaster bus took guests from the church to a stately home called Kelmarsh Hall, in Northamptonshire.
The bride travelled in this beautiful vintage Jaguar.

Photos on the lawn, and a chance to wander round the gorgeous gardens.

A blend of formal beds, and relaxed areas, bordering pastoral countryside, with horse chestnuts in blossom, white and purple lilac trees, and graceful willows. Old walled gardens, with mellow brick.

A country church just across the fields.

And plenty of places to sit and rest between chats, catching up with cousins, aunts and uncles.
