“You have to have your photograph taken in the photobooth, so it can go in the album.” Those were the instructions from Abi and Lisa, the two lovely ladies behind Marry Me in Somerset. The website’s first birthday was this week and to celebrate they organised a tweetup at The Manor near Taunton, a splendid 13th Century Grade II* listed building.
Although quite a way from home I decided to go along and I’m so glad I did. Everyone was very welcoming and I got a fascinating history of the house from Fiona, one of the owners. I can’t wait to go back and see it in the daylight – it was a bit too dark to see the acres of formal gardens! The rooms were fantastic and each with their own character. Food was laid on by Le Frog, and there was a great deal of chatter. Normally a bit reticent in crowds of strangers, I threw myself into the occasion and met a load of awesome people as a result. A massive thank you to Abi and Lisa for organising the event, and please invite me to the next one!
And the cupcake? The good people at Cake Couture Bristol provided special “Marry Me” cupcakes for the evening. I had one in my hand when I went into the photobooth. I think I exhausted my range of facial expressions but it seemed to go down well.
Thanks to the party photo booth people for the print out. 🙂Pin It
