T’other day I joined Martin & Michelle for their pre-wedding meet at their house, where I met the other member of their family…
Clare & I are about to move into our first house and we’re thinking of getting a dog to keep me company. We’re thinking of a Beagle, cos they look mint. But it’s always interesting seeing different breeds of dogs. This solid box of a bulldog was a proper grandad of a dog. Even breathing normally he sounded like he was snoring through a pleasant dream. Apparently he falls asleep standing on the side of a sofa, literally dropping off & creating a crash like a book case just fell over. I recently met a different couple who have a bulldog they say lives for sitting on the sofa watching telly. I can relate to that kind of animal. Martin & Michelle told me how they had to carry Harvey home once cos he got too tired.
He don’t look light, either.
It’s so funny how different dogs are.
Anyhoos – back to the real stars of the show – Martin & Michelle are getting married this weekend at Clay House Park near Halifax.
They’re driving there in a vintage campervan and afterwards are having their reception in the field of a friend in Papakata Tipis!
They come in various incantations, but generally look like the above. In spite of unpredictable UK weather, they’re actually dead toasty.
Inside they have fires, a bar, a chill-out area, a dining room, a dancefloor and all sorts. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
I couldn’t help making Harvey the centre of attention. Look at the guy! He’s a tank,
Down by the Clay House Park playing field was a graffiti wall, with loads of bright fresh work on it. A primo background.
While we were snapping I was holding Harv’s lead, and I turn to find he’d found an ambitious stick. Brilliant.
After a bit of a grey shoot at Clayhouse we drove to the field where they’re hosting their reception and the weather changed completely.
We’re talking low sun, and that teal-grey ominous sky that could bucket down any moment.
So we got involved into the sun, and stole a delectable few flarey frames.
And before we wrapped I thought I’d remind people how big my chin looks with a 16 mil at an arms length…
Can’t wait to see the tipis m&m! Bring the fun!
