It’s been just over two weeks since my friends and I hopped over to the Isle of Wight to celebrate our friends Stacy and Pip’s wedding, it’s also been well over two weeks since I said I was back with a new fox attitude, well, quite a bit has happened in between then so I’ve just got to put it down to that.
What a wonderful day for a wedding…
Now that it looks like summer is here, though we can never hold out for too long with between now and then, and most of the week before, featuring a lot of grey cloud, Stacy and Pip really were very lucky with the weather. Set on The Apple Farm, which actually used to be owned by the man who we ended up renting our cottage for the weekend from, the venue was absolutely lovely, decorated simply but effectively. I feel so grateful that they let us share in their special day.
With it being the bank holiday, and with our friend Long back for a quick UK pitstop, we made the most of the weekend and set up camp and the lovely Afton Bank Cottage, which I would completely recommend if you’re ever planning a trip to the Freshwater area, it was exactly what we needed! The hosts were really friendly and ever ready to help us out with places to go and things to do and they even lent us their barbecue for when we arrived on the Friday.
The sea pinks were so beautiful against the blue sea backdrop. 😘
Don’t scrub up too bad, do we? ♥
Reckon selfie-game this weekend was about as strong as my wedding quiff ✌️
The ‘big dogs are best brigade’ sure did make a helluva lot of fuss over little chihuahua, Link.
An island retreat…
The Isle of Wight is such a great place for a getaway and there’s so much to do, we even managed to fit in two games of mini golf, so that’s pretty pro. On either side of the wedding and even on the morning of, we were off out doing something. I’m also really pleased we got a cheeky catch-up with the newly weds at The Globe before they jetted off for their honeymoon. The Globe was another place we got really lucky with, we had practically the whole restaurant to ourselves!
This weekend was just the pick-me-up I needed after a bit of an anxiety-filled lead up, but yeah, more on that another time…
