We have guests!!

So the invitations went out and the replies are coming in thick and fast! We're quite impressed by the super speedy post office - we got our first replies practically by return post (though there was a weekend in the way)!

There was great excitement this morning when the door bell rang and our postman handed over a parcel from America! The handmade invitations had arrived from Laura at Letterbox Ink!

More butterfly cakes

These are our first attempt at some gluten free cupcakes (using Nigella's Quadruple chocolate loaf as the base recipe). They are exceedingly chocolatey!! We may have to tone that down a bit!

Hilton Hotel

Last night we went to check on the rooms at the Hilton. They were rather smart - the whole hotel has been refurbished in the last six months. We managed to get a block booking too - of 25 rooms, so if you want to go and book a room (before the 13th August) they'll be £50.00 Per Single Occupancy Room Inc Of Full Breakfast & VAT and £70.00 Per Double Occupancy Room Inc Of Full Breakfast & VAT. If you book way in advance they might even be cheaper but to get the deal you'll need to quote GHIGA. The hotel also has a good sports complex, with gym and swimming pool, steam room and sauna!

Butterfly cakes

These edible butterflies just arrived in the post from Sugar Robot! Aren't they gorgeous - we'll need to find some cakes to put them on, plenty of practising afoot!

Its nearly 10months to go before our big day and we've already had to make quite a few decisions. We thought may be you'd like to see what we're up to and what we're planning, though some of the posts may be a bit cryptic!

Today we went to the woods near Earlswood and gathered lots of acrons for the table decorations. We brought them home and washed and baked them!

We also popped into John Lewis, where they laughed merrily at us, to set up a wedding list - apparently they only let you scan in anything 6 weeks before hand! So no asking for presents for a little while yet ;-)
