I didn’t watch “The Wedding” or any part of the ceremonies. Weddings of royalty or us common folk 🙂 don’t really interest me. I did see this piece of Royal Wedding memorabilia on a Guardian slide show – http://tinyurl.com/3hxoh85

Ye Olde Royal Wedding Sick Bag. We yanks usually wait until the divorce, and hearing the size of the alimony payments, before we hand these out.

I do however enjoy attending any event where there is cake:

“The wedding cake, designed by Fiona Cairns, is made from 17 individual fruit cakes (12 of which form the base) and has eight tiers. The cake has been decorated with cream and white icing using the Joseph Lambeth technique. There are up to 900 individually iced flowers and leaves of 17 different varieties decorated on the cake. A garland design around the middle of the cake matches the architectural garlands decorated around the top of the Picture Gallery in Buckingham Palace, the room in which the cake will be displayed. The chocolate biscuit cake was created by Mcvitie’s Cake Company using a Royal Family recipe at the special request of Prince William.”

Two magnificent pearl-bordered fritillaries mating. A UK survey has revealed record numbers of this rare butterfly, which has been seen earlier than usual this year due to warm weather.

2) What is your favorite wedding song?

Paul Stookey’s – The Wedding Song (There Is Love)

This is closer to my inclinations when it comes to love, well okay passion.

Etta James – “I Just Want To make Love To You” & “Born To Be Wild”
