Catching up with weddings and other things

Vernon & Francine Jackson of "Cayman Weddings" - 6o Years of Marriage

Peggy's wedding had an art-deco theme with masses of fresh peonies

Peggy & Brett's December wedding

I can't believe how time slips away! I have really neglected this blog, which is unforgiveable but... so many things have been going on in our family that I have tried to keep up my website and my other blog. But you know what, I miss Blogger, and I prefer it to Word-Press, so I think I might be blogging more over here in future.

Peggy, my wedding co-ordinator for 2 years, is now my daughter-in-law. She and our second son Brett were married at Pedro St James Castle in early December. It was a fairy-tale wedding with an art-deco theme designed by the great folks at Lions Productions.

Then in February I went off to the US for 6 weeks to await the arrival of our newest grand-daughter who arrived on 8 February. This makes 4 grand-children for us, and three of them live in Cayman so we have to divide our time to make sure we see all of the sweet little ones.

Last night was yet another big event in our family as Francine and Vernon Jackson, my parents, the owners and operators of Cayman Weddings (for the past 26 years!) celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary. We had a fabulous event at the Retreat at Lookout (also a great setting for a wedding!) with all the family, and their closest friends. There were at least 4 of their original wedding party present!
So, all those who like to see what the Joy of Weddings is doing, you're caught up. Of course I wore a hat to Peggy's wedding, a fascinator from Henri Bendel New York. For the next two weeks I am indulging myself by featuring a picture of me with my boa and facinator on my profile picture, so catch the look now. For "Royal Family" watchers Kate, the future Queen of England likes fascinators as well, so I think we will see a resurgence of these lovely hats especially this spring.
