The Wedding!

Hurro! It me Ludo! Here be the long promised wedding post. Only 3 months after it happened. It might get long! Mum did be in two minds about posting this, but, since some of our very dear friends have waited so patiently she decided to share.

We had lots of visitors to our house in the days afore the wedding, lots of comings and goings and busy peoples and we went to the groomers.

Our pawrents got married in a hotel in the Lake District, so we all travelled down and stayed there together the day before like a mini hol-ee-day. The hotel allowed dogs in some bedrooms and Me and Arran were supposed to stay in Grandpawents room, but actually we stayed in the bridesmaid’s room on the first night instead. The bridesmaids were two of Mum’s nieces Abi and Georgina who come and stay with us at our house sometimes with their Mum and we like them a lot, and of course, they like us a lot too! Mum and TND had decided that we would be at the wedding with them, but we did not has a ‘job’ in the wedding. Firstly, we did not be allowed into those parts of the hotel where the ceremony be, but more importantly, we (well, mostly Arran) would has got really stressed and worried about all the people and not knowing what going on and I would has totally wanted all the attentions on me. So we went and stayed with our family, but we stayed out of the busy ‘wedding’ parts.

What do you think we're doing here then Ludo?

We had a look around the place and it beed a hot day! We had lots of grounds to explore and a very nice room with a nice cool bathroom and comfy beds. Whilst Mum and TND unpacked and sorted things out, Grandpawents, Auntie Toni and the bridesmaids tooked us into town for some lunch. Mum and TND seemed a bit stressy, usually they is very relaxed on hol-ee-day.

Meanwhile, Mum says she spent her time greeting people arriving, watching Auntie Sam, who beed making all the flower displays and then she switched to doing this…


Mum’s room with Auntie Toni had a hot tub!

The people spent the evening having food and chatting to each other and we popped in and out whenever someone came to get us.

The next day Mum got up early as she could not sleep at all and she beed VERY nervous. We went for a walk around the hotel. It had rained through the night but didn’t look like the day be too bad. Grandpaw, Auntie Toni and the bridesmaids comed too as they could not sleep either! Arran had fun undoing the bridesmaids shoelaces.


So… what are we doing today, Mum?


Mum came back to Grandpawents room with us, whilst they all went to breakfast and then a person from the hotel arrived with breakfast for us!


Apparently, it bad luck for TND to see the bride afore the wedding and Mum be the bride. Mum ordered us a room service sausage each. She tried to take a photo and I used the opportunity to snaffle mine. I swallowed it down in one gulp and Arran got very worried I would eat his and tried to eat his quickly too but it still beed a bit too hot so he could not. I does not regret it!


Mum went off to get ready for the wedding and stopped taking photos of us! Can you believe it? So I is not really sure what I should post next! Surely, you does not want to see piccures without us in?

You do?

Well, maybe just a few… Thank you to our pawrents wonderful wedding photographer, Karli Harrison Photography for the following photos and for being amazing throughout the day. (oh, you can probably click to bigify)

Mum getting groomed

Mum getting groomed

Mum spent almost as long getting groomed as we do! Although she got to have coffee and biscuits in between. We doesn’t get a treat until after the grooming all finished. Mum said getting her makeup put on be nice and relaxing and so I guess she behaved better than I do and did not show her mean teeth at the brush like I does.

Efurryone said Mum looked very pretty in her dress and so did the bridesmaids (and we think so did Grandma!), so I guess all that grooming paid off.


Here they come TND!

Here they come TND!

This next bit the most important bit of the whole wedding apparently. Mum and TND said their marriage vows to each other and signed the legally binding bit. What does this all mean to a sheltie dog? Well, it means that TND, does now be DAD (he started off as TNP – The New Person and then became The Nice Dad, although he still be ‘the nice’).

Who’d have thought that little bit of metal could make TND my official Dad? I would has given him one the first time he made me my own sandwich to take on a picnic if I’d knowed! Doesn’t be crying Grandpawents. I is sure he will make you a sandwich too!

I usually bark at my pawrents when they kiss and cuddle each other, but throwing petals at them seems to stop them too.

Grandpaw had to make a speech after dinner. He does not like to be the centre of attention but Mum says he did very well and he talked about us (and so did TND!)

cake and flowers

After the peoples dinner we hung out with Mum in the conservatory and met some of TND’s friends. Everyone really liked us and Arran even let people he didn’t know stroke him. I kept trying to sneak through the doors into the parts of the hotel I not allowed to go and when people seed me they tried to help me. Hehe! Then Mum fed us our dinner (late!) and put us to bed and spent the rest of the night doing things like this!

And then they got to stay in a thing called the bridal suite! What lucky peoples!

DSC_0248_1Then it rained and rained all the next day, so that be lucky it waited till then or else we might have got muddy pawprints on Mum’s dress. That the most you ever gonna see of Mum and TND’s faces. Back to us dogs from now on. hehe.
