A Torquay Wedding

England travels

Even though Jon and I are engaged ourselves, in the two years that we’ve been together we’ve never gone to a wedding together. Weird, right? I thought so. That was finally remedied this past Saturday when we road tripped down to Torquay for the wedding of Gill and Nick, Nick being one of Jon’s old university roommates. They are a really amusing, super hilarious couple if ever there was one. The whole thing was really fun-everyone was in such a good mood! Although the weather wasn’t exactly pleasant down by the sea, it wasn’t terrible, and the rain held off long enough for outdoorsy pictures before everyone piled in the chartered bus for our trip to the reception venue. The ceremony itself was in a small room in Torre Abbey, which was absolutely beautiful. Strong point of living in England-you can get married in a castle/manor house/abbey that is hundreds of years old, and ¬†unabashedly awesome. Afterwards, there was much receptional dancing and rowdiness, believe you-me. And it was really nice having the chance to spend so much quality time with my man, driving to the Southwest and just hanging out! Not to mention finally meeting so many of the dudes that color his very interesting uni stories:)

Now I’m back to lazing about. The combined change of crazy temperatures from near 90s in Ohio to low 60s and rainy in England, plus all the traveling stress has combined to give me some sort of horrendous cold. I’m hacking and wheezing over here-it ain’t pretty. Keep your fingers crossed that I survive.
