A Golden Day

Imagine a sunny Sunday at Burghley

surrounded by all your family
gathered to celebrate a Golden Wedding

Brothers and sister, children, grandchildren,
cousins: first, second, third and all stages removed.

The best man was there too
and three bridesmaids
who all remembered the windy day in Lincoln
which was the very start of the fifty years.

We drank the strawberry punch
and chatted
and ate the delicious food
and chatted some more
and enjoyed the spectacular Croquembouche.

And of course we toasted the happy couple:
Many congratulations to my Parents-in-Law
Thomas and Audrey


  1. Congratulations to the happy couple - they clearly know how to continue making wonderful memories together!

  2. Oh!

    We celebrate them with you.

  3. Happiest of anniversaries, Thomas and Audrey!

    And what a stunning setting...

  4. How wonderful to be connected to a couple who have shared so much together for such a golden long time..

  5. how beautiful! and congratulations on an accomplishment that is increasingly rare!

  6. A golden day indeed. Congratulations Thomas and Audrey.

  7. Congratulations!
    My parents' 53rd is coming up ... I find it amazing to be able to stay together for such a long time. They set and example for all of us.
    The pictures are splendid as usual, the ambience, the gardens! and obviously that croquenbouche ... mmmmmmhhh!

  8. How wonderful. And look at those flowers. And the Croquembouche. Absolutely delightful. We're starting to organise a little something for my in-law's Ruby wedding anniversary in October. Sounds so easy...

    Thank you for recording our wonderful day with so many happy memories, especially of family and special friends who were present. Relationships matter more than anything else. We look back with love and deep affection on 50 years which have passed in a flash.

  10. Congratulations to Thomas and Audrey! What a beautiful day. K x

  11. A noble achievement and a delicious cake. Well done to them both.

  12. Congratulations to them both! My parents celebrated the same anniversary earlier this year --- it's lovely to know that there are so many marriages lasting so long!
