Valentine's wedding at Goodwood House

today we had a wedding at Goodwood House

such a special place for a wedding on anyday of the year - but even more romantic on St Valentine's day

the front hall was filled with the most wonderful perfume from the hyacinths 

which wafted through to the ceremony room
where we used even more hyacinths 

 even Venus got to carry a posy of white amaryllis

bowls of tulips, roses and lilac
lilies and even the humble carnation adorned the tables in
the ballroom

and each place setting had a snowdrop

this follows on from the Danish custom to send a
bunch of snowdrops on Valentine's day to your lover

the traditional Danish wedding cake a Kransekage -
it's supposed to have a bottle of wine inside -
sounds like fun to me
