We Send Balloons Into The Fast Clearing Skies…

Continuing on from yesterday’s post and the wedding that no one will ever forget, the wedding breakfast and party at least go smoothly.

The weather, having caused chaos earlier in the day has now improved greatly, and it’s now a dry and balmy evening.

One thing that the bridal couple have organised for all of the children are a large bunch of helium balloons, with strings and little notes for the children to write their addresses on.

Of course my children, along with their Dutch cousins, wrote their Dutch address as the “sender”of the balloons, even though the balloons were “posted” as it were from near Ely and not The Netherlands.

Each balloon was released into the evening sky with much speculation about if anyone would find the notes and drop the children a line, but in the end we heard nothing back, probably not so surprising considering the large amount of open fields around the church.

The kids were very excited about letting the balloons go and watched them until they were tiny specks in the sky.

The wedding evening  party was far larger than the sit down wedding breakfast (as is of course common at weddings) and since the bride and groom were saving for a home of their own, they asked workmates, friends and UK relatives to bring a plate of food as part of the wedding gift. In this way they had a buffet table filled in no time and delicious food!
