I haven't had much time to post in the last week or so, as we've hit wedding season big time. First a family friend got married 10 days ago, then both my cousin and my brother got married within a week (not to each other, I hasten to add). As a result, our lives have been taken over by wedding preparations and the associated stresses. Thankfully all three weddings have gone well and I'm now looking forward to some chilling out time, preferably on a sandy beach.
I haven't been granted permission to publish the photos of the happy couples, so I thought I'd show you my brother's wedding favours. These are pouches made of tulle and fastened with a satin ribbon, which hold seven or nine sugared almonds, and are given to the guests at the end of the service. Once opened they look like this:
Yes, you can only see 5 sugared almonds - that's because I ate the other four before I took the photo.
