Wedding, Water Lily and Wet Leaves

20 Jul

I conducted the loveliest Humanist Wedding Ceremony this morning, in a beautiful garden with Cornish mist mizzling and everyone smiling.  It was personal and very moving and made even more special by the fact that a small group from The Suitcase Singers, one of the choirs I sing with, sang a number of most appropriate songs, chosen by the couple and beautifully arranged by our MD, Claire Ingleheart.  Thank you to the singers who helped to make that a very special ceremony for everyone involved.  Photos will follow later.

Two of our number invited us all back for lunch and that was really good too, to unwind with friends over a truly delicious meal and then to have a walk around their lovely and very productive garden. There was a Water Lily just opening on their pond.  (Thank you, P and J, for the rhubarb!)

I love taking photos in the rain! I love how droplets collect and act as little magnifying glasses on the leaves. Do click on the photo and then zoom in – it’s like magic!

    Sally, the water droplets photo I is beautiful. I zoomed in as you suggested and was amazed and delighted that some of the droplets had reflected pictures in them . . like tiny little mirrors. I can’t believe you found such beauty in our garden. All I see when I walk round the garden are brambles and bindweed and peas that are needing to be picked. I shall now walk round in your shoes instead. Thank you.
    Thank you also for the privilege of singing at the lovely and moving wedding. x

      I’m so glad you zoomed in and found the ‘tiny little mirrors’. Your garden is very beautiful – we both loved it.
      I’m very happy too that you enjoyed singing at the Wedding ceremony. It really did add a very special element to the whole occasion. 🙂

    I always loved the expression “we are all just drops in a deep blue ocean… Some of them DO sparkle”. I believe it is from the play Camelot …
