Wedding Belle Boys

A minus point, living all the way 'downunder' in Australia is missing out on big happenings and special celebrations in England with family and friends and this week we felt it so much as our dear friends Stuart and Kiel had their Civil Ceremony and got married in the English sunshine in Kent.

Those of you who have read the blog over the last few months know that they are the owners of FONTAINE Decorative Antiques and I have done quite a few posts ( click HERE ) about what they sell and their company and also their cottage on the coast in England.

We sent them this bouquet above.. .... Called 'Antique Posy' (which I thought was really appropriate) from the Real Flower Company... in England - my favourite place for sending flowers - such gorgeous English roses.

I really do wish that we could have been with them though to share their happy day.....

P.S. I did look for a 'Civil Ceremony' card in our local card/gift shop but to no avail - (perhaps the area where we live here is a little conservative for such cards - has anyone seen them in their travels?) Anyway, I found a 'plain' suitable card for them which was lovely.

CONGRATULATIONS dearest Stu and Kiel - loads more happy years to you both together xxxxx


  1. Congrats to your friends and excellent work with the flowers. Have missed your posts. Don't forgt to answer my how did you find this blog question!!!!

  2. What a pity you could not be there. I think a civil ceremony card is quite beyond the card people in Oz at the moment but perhaps with a wee bit of encouragement it won't be long before they catch up!!

  3. Congrats to them and what a beautiful bouquet you sent..

    How odd I was under the impression Oz was fully accepting of same sex marriages unlike the small underdeveloped country I live in, whoops make that the USA.

    Anyhow wishing them years of love and trust and fun.

  4. hi sarah,

    much happiness to your friends and so happy that you are posting again. sometimes life gets in the way of blogging for me too. i love the roses you chose, they are absolutely beautiful.


  5. Oh, lovely. It looks like they had an amazing day for it, how lucky.
    I've never looked for a civil ceremony card, but being close to San Francisco, I suspect if they can't be found here, they won't be anywhere. I dimly recall seeing something perhaps on Etsy?

  6. PS - yes, missing out on big happy days like this one due to being overseas is really sad. I've only missed one wedding and I did regret it.

  7. Aw, beautiful flowers, beautiful day.

  8. Gorgeous bouquet, you have excellent taste! I have seen quite a few civil ceremony cards in London - would you like me to send one to you, to send to them or is it a bit too late now?

  9. Hello Semi Expat,
    I love weddings. They are always such happy days. I'm getting misty eyed over the Chelsea Clinton wedding photos too.

    They are stunning roses.

    Congrats and best wishes to the couple from all of your readers!
