After much searching we finally found a nice church reading. My fiancé especially likes it as it mentions foxes. On Saturday he’s stepped in fox poo and so left his shoes in the shed overnight so he could sort them in the morning. When he went to look for them the next morning they were gone! We later discovered them in the garden (one on the lawn and one in a den behind a bush) – the fox had carried them there and chewed bits off them! Naughty London fox!

Song of Solomon, Chapter 2, verses 10-15

My lover spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, and come with me.
See! The winter is past;
The rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
The season of singing has come,
The cooing of doves
Is heard in our land.
The fig-tree forms its early fruit;
The blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
My beautiful one, come with me.”

My dove in the clefts of the rock,
In the hiding-places on the mountainside,
Show me your face,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet,
And your face is lovely.
Catch for us the foxes,
The little foxes
That ruin the vineyards,
Our vineyards that are in bloom!

The inspiration for our wedding cake was a walk through the countryside on a winter’s day.

Here’s some pictures I took from a New Years trip to the Cotswold’s.

We’d like the bottom tier of our cake to be made up of the kind of frost covered plants, berries and thorns that you find at wintertime. My fiancé’s mother who’s making our cake has been creating some examples out of icing. I think they’re great especially the Tim Burton inspired thorns! The decorations will be made of different shades of blue, black and a little red – it looks very dramatic against the white icing of the cake.

Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog by Taylor Mali

First of all, it’s a big responsibility,
especially in a city like New York.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.
On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you’re walking down the street late at night
and you have a leash on love
ain’t no one going to mess with you.
Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?
On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes
and makes funny noises.
Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.
Love doesn’t like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.
It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.
Is love good all the time? No! No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.
Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.
Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose,
not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know Don’t you ever do that again!
Sometimes love just wants to go for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise.
It runs you around the block and leaves you panting.
It pulls you in several different directions at once,
or winds around and around you
until you’re all wound up and can’t move.
But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love
stop and talk to each other on the street.
Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.
But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.

snow-globe

I love the idea of using snow globes as extra special favours for our guests. The best real example of this I’ve found is by newlyweds Stuart and John. They created these fantastic snow globes for their wedding. Would love to know where they got them created.

In the art world, the masters of the snow globe are undeniably Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz. They create miniature scenes with a fairytale (almost nightmarish) quality about them. Here’s some examples of their limited edition snow globes.
