How to succeed in wedding weekends:
• Hire a venue in the middle of nowhere with tiny cottages and large mansions for your guests and drivers to take them everywhere
• Force people to relax by having the ceremony at lunchtime on Friday, the reception that night, an all-day-into-night party on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday
• Add kilts, ceilidhs, jazz, Irish dancers, bagpipes and fiddles, flowers, and fairy lights
• Invite a variety of people whom you love, mix with magnums of champagne, and see what happens
Jen & John treated us to a wonderful party, and again I marvelled at how fabulous it is when you watch two people you adore tie the knot. The energy of last weekend was infectious. My face still hurts from smiling so much.
