Food

This week the theme in the The Gallery is Food!

3 years ago, the OH and I decided one day that we would finally get married.  It was a very long time coming but when we decided we did it at ligtning speed.  After eliminating already booked family holidays, the birth of 2 family babies and other crucial events we realised that we only had 4 weeks to do everything.  Needless to say, the next 4 weeks were utterly stressful and fun all at the same time.   Every weekend and weekday would be spent rushing to different places to book the venue, food, invitations, favours, bridal outfit, dresses, presents, rings…and the list went on.  Arrrrrrgh!!

Amazingly, with the help of some excellent friends and family it all came together.   I then realised a couple of days before that I had FORGOTTEN TO ORDER A WEDDING CAKE.  Ahhhhh…S***! Still, I wasn’t too bothered anymore.  I was just really looking forward to our wedding day and resigned myself to the fact that it would be cakeless.

The day kicked off and it was amazing.  Halfway through the day I suddenly caught sight of something being brought out.  It was a wedding cake.  My brother had noticed, in my bridezilla frenzy, that I’d not ordered one so bought us this as our wedding present.

And very very nice it was too.

  1. Oh what an absolute sweetie he is, and it’s a beautiful cake. Good work that brother!

    4 weeks? I thought me doing it in 4 months was quick, but 4 weeks is amazing!

  2. Just goes to show somethings work out well at the last minute – a fabulous looking cake!

  3. Wow, what a brother! Not sure mine would even remember there WAS a wedding unless someone prodded him awake

  4. What a lovely brother! We also had a wedding cake (or cakes – they were cupcakes) as a wedding present from my best friend’s mum. Such a lovely idea. x
