Wedding Fever



A few days ago my lovely girl and I had a night away in London. The sun shone and we had a great couple of days. Wedding fever had certainly started, Regent Street looked great in the evening light decorated with flags and all lit up.

The city was packed with tourists enjoying the sunshine and the atmosphere.

We spent a lovely couple of hours on the King's Road and of course had to pop in to Cath Kidston. This was the shop Kate Middleton was photographed outside of a few days earlier.There were still plenty of paps hanging around and tv cameras from around the world. My one concession to the Royal wedding with a bit of encouragement from my lovely girl was Cath, Royal wedding tea towel.

The window display in Liberty was quirky and fun and decorated with vintage bunting.

We decided to join the crowds and visited Westminster Abbey. It was worth the wait and lovely and cool inside having waited outside in the scorching sunshine. The audio tour is well worth doing and we both enjoyed it. Outside enormous platforms had been set up for the world's media and cameras were being set up on surrounding buildings.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's TV extravaganza, but it was great to see your photos - it all makes you feel proud to be British!

TV is on, just want to see the dress and the floral arangements in the Abbey.
Liberty's window display looks super as always, just want to know if you will wipe up with your new tea towel.
