My Best Friend’s Wedding: Kitchen Tea

In 2016 my beautiful best friend became a Mrs, and I was lucky enough to be chosen as her maid of honour.

Needless to say, it was a spontaneous decision (after a failed attempt to buy flowers at Woolworths) and I was wholly over dressed for the occasion. Nevertheless the farm is beautiful (as I've shown before)… Continue reading Coming up roses
