Hylands House, My Sunday Photo

The day after a wedding can almost feel magical, waking up with an ever so slightly fuzzy head. Which I might add,  I was celebrating.  I am a lover of wine, but such a long day and copious amounts of wine don’t always go together. So purely for experimental purposes I tested Malibu and diet coke, and hoorah it was a success!

No raging hangover, just lovely memories of watching love ones take their vowels, declare their undying love for each other. A huge celebration that family and friends were honoured to be part of.

And the location was just breathtaking. The most stunning of venues that seemed to look even more beautiful the morning after, most probably because the morning after it had become part of the fabric of our family history, something people would remember and cherish for years to come.

So yes, Saturday morning felt pretty special, not only was I feeling such happiness at being part of such a wonderful day, but the Essex countryside was celebrating a distinct spring morning, with that hazy glow, sound of birds and warmth that makes your heart sing. That feeling after a rough winter of storms and torrential rain, finally a spring morning and it couldn’t have chosen a better weekend to make an appearance.

I said my goodbyes to my Dad and Chris went to get the car, I took the opportunity to get some quick photos, it was glorious wandering across the lawn, people happily taking weekend strolls and walking their dogs.

I didn’t get long to wander and take pictures as Chris wanted to get back, but it was such a beautiful morning that I had to take the opportunity to at least get a few shots. And most definitely next time we visit Essex I will be taking the boys for a long morning walk at the very beautiful Hylands Park.

    Just lovely. Like the detail in the iron gate and those trees with their bendy, crooked branches–I can’t say it enough, I love England!

    What a beautiful location for a wedding. I got a flash back when you said you had been drinking Malibu and coke, I used to drink that when I was 18. Winner if it meant no hangover in the morning x
