Fiona and Andy's 1st Wedding Anniversary party

Good Evening!! Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post (Mom, Scoo, Aunt Marilyn and co.) and those who comment generally (Tanya, Jen :) I love you guys too! And I am looking very much forward to my visit to the big R.

This lovely partyscene below is Fiona and Andy's backyard. A beautiful evening and it is the fancy-est I have even felt with eating out of doors! (Yes Scoo, I do need to wrok on my spelling!!)

Mark looking especially lovely!
We took the table at the back of the garden (which was actually the front of the "stage") YAY. Fiona is a co-worker of mine, and our from the Carbon Trust were there as well. Mark and I met Di, Garren and Ben (who are in middle in the picture below) at Kings Cross train station on our way to the party.
And guess who was on the stage!?!?
ELVIS! :) He was no Rory Allen but he sang pretty well and was churning out the hits!
It was really cool that Fiona got Elvis for her backyard!!
Di and I did some dancing in the grass.
This is Fiona; she is lovely!
Di and Fif
Posing in our dancing spot.
Elvis was pretty flashy!
And I think his zipper was slipping down through the night!!

Cez & Andrew's Wedding 01/08/09

Hello!
Welcome to my first English Wedding. Very similar to Canadian ones. And the church had a huge organ that played "Here Comes the Bride" on the entry of the Wedding party. I am not sure why this first bit of text is underline but o'well!

The church was really nice inside. We got there early as you can see!

Mark and Neil were even part of the ceremony. They sang "Dream a Little Dream", requested by Cezanne, and I must say it was much better than all other versions! :) They practised very hard to make sure their performance was perfect and I thought it was great!
There was just a light rain starting when we exited the church. All the guests got flower petals to throw at the wedding couple as they came out of the church. I am annoyed I missed that photo opp!

The boys all spifed up!
After the church part, which was in Greenwich, all of the guest etc walked to the river and we took a private boat into the city.

Here I am posing with some champaigne which I didn't drink and gave away after this.
I love this picture, I specifically asked Mark to smile with his teeth showing, because I think he has a lovely open smile and he so rarely shows it, and Mark was just drunk enough to listen to me! LOL
The reception was held at the Garden Museum in Lambeth. The museum is in an old church, hence it looking all churchy. We didn't stay too late, 11pm, but the whole thing ended at 12 anyways, and we had to catch trains home!
