A Pride and Prejudice Wedding - part 2

If you missed part 1 of  "A Pride and Prejudice Wedding" please go here and look at it first.  I think you will be glad you did. 

"A lady's imagination is very rapid, it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment"
- Jane Austen

Emma and Peter arrived at Cyprus Grove together and had a little time to enjoy the upstairs Bridal Room.  As with the downstairs cake and champagne room, shown in part 1, this upstairs room was just great for this particular couple.
Most of the following pictures are from the wedding photographer, Castaldo Studio.


 Relaxing on the period sofa and maybe thinking of this line from the book, "I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation.  It is too long ago.  I was in the middle before I had begun."  Notice the book page heart garland draped over the sofa. It was made by Emma's mother. While you are "noticing" look over Peter's left shoulder and see my hat pin holders, filled with hat pins.

Time to get ready to walk down the aisle. Again, over the shoulder - my glove holder and gloves.

Across the room awaits the rose and babies breath bouquet, another page garland and a few of my accessories.

 The rooms are bare of anything except a few pieces of furniture. Using these items here on one of the chairs made it seem warmer and takes you back to the days of Pride and Prejudice. 

Harpist, Christine MacPhail is always ready with her nice smile and music. She was outside for the short ceremony and moved here to play during the cake and champagne.

Going down the isle!

I don't have any of the actual ceremony pictures but, the following are after.

Mr & Mrs

Congratulations, and may you live happily ever after!
