mobile wedding kit...trip to Winchester and the Isle of Wight!



We set of early this morning on a mission to get our wedding load from our home in London, to our wedding venue on the Isle of Wight for storage until next month. We squeezed in everything including 2 marquees, 40 plates and a 4 metre tent! just enough space left for us!


On the way to Southampton, we stopped off for lunch at Winchester and were completely surprised at how beautiful that town is! We only had one hour so we will defiantly come back one day, it was one of the best towns I've been to.


beautiful leafy riverside walks and tiny wonky buildings galore!

Then we raced over to the ferry before it departed...


So windy up on deck, we had fun trying to take photos, I almost got blown off the ship!


Nao twittering...


You have such amazing view up there...


and some have even higher views than us...


Then we landed safely on the Isle of Wight with our precious load...mobile wedding kit!
We explored down this tree lined road, in search for a cup or tea and a slice of cake for refreshment...


and at the end of the lane, was a Lavender farm!


just too stunning for words, we took hundreds of pictures, and we dreamed of just pitching up our new tent right there in their 200 acres of Lavender farm!


AND I found my dream home!!!


I practised my wedding photo smile...


and we listened to the grasshoppers and sheep in the afternoon sun, and felt all tranquil indeed!


...then, we arrived at our destination, my Mum's flat where we will deposit all our vintage collection of plates and camping paraphernalia for our wedding camp in her garden, with this our carpet!...


ahhh! bliss and one more thing to cross off our list of to do's
Just a few more things to organised and we are all set for the wedding proceedings next month!
