And the rain's here.
The day had been promising. Lunch time visitors sat in the garden. Those on the court tours spread themselves through the main room and outside, eating us out of cheese scones.
The rain arrived as the bride and groom finished having their photographs taken. On the plus side there were lots of men in kilts.
The 106 who were invited to the reception came in for prearranged tea.
Those who weren't invited, but who'd come to witness the ceremony, came in too for...tea and cake. Thus we were busy at both ends of the tea room for a hectic 45 minutes.
The bride sat in the conservatory on her own after everyone had left. Enjoying the quiet.
Then she left for the reception.
