A seaside wedding
When we were in Lyme Regis Steve found an empty barbers and asked if I would mind if he went for a hair cut. I said of course not and that I would have a potter nearby.
I was outside the local church, on the seafront, when a wedding party bubbled outside; a froth of lace, laughter and photos.
The bride wore a fifties style ivory lace dress similar to this one......
I watched and pondered; how exciting a wedding is, setting off together into a life unknown upon a promise of love.
I met up with a very handsome post haircut husband and we meandered along the sea edge. And then the wedding party approached for pre-dinner drinks in the seaside beach huts bedecked with bunting ....
And then, as the rain began to fall, they went to the restaurant above; floating on a cloud of ivory lace, love and laughter.
And I smiled; silently wishing them well.
