Back From A Weekend Wedding.

I'm back to the semi-normality now, still on holiday, but at home once more after a weekend in the lake district for a friends wedding.

All in all a very relaxing get away, several nice meals in interesting places - Although I did sustain a toast related injury to my tounge, which I still can't quiet belive, basically stabbing my self with a particularly crispy bit of crust, cutting my tounge, and having a nice blend of garlic vinigar sting it like hell.

The wedding was great fun, and was the first I've been to since I was a child. I now realise that it wasn't just because I was young that they seem so confusing and disorganised, but in fact that no one really knows whats supposed to happen at a wedding. It's all ad-hoc, sure they key elements are planned, but there is no master plan, it all just sort of happens, everyone relying on memories of other weddings as to what is supposed to happen when. Sure I guess if you hire a wedding planner or some such fad you avoid that, but there is an element of true acomplishment when it's all managed by the family, at each stage certain officials guide things along, but been friends rather then family, you get the advantage of sitting back and just enjoying the whole thing, where as family tend to be more invloved and fretting about what is the right thing to do along the way.
