The Spaghetti Pony Wedding

Absolutely breathtaking and emotional from start to finish - Glyn and Ella's wedding, the official pictures taken by the talented Mere. It was a beautiful day, starting at Hackney Town Hall and moving on to the St John Smithsfield Restaurant for a blow out party... Old friends got together after ages and new friends were made that day. The ceremony moved me to tears and made me feel so very grateful to be a part of such a close group of friends, and to be able to witness two people so very meant for each other.

Plus Helena had the most amazing sailor outfit with awesome hair-do. Go figure.

The sweet American miracle

Thank God the Americans woke up that day and picked Barack Obama - I can't believe he is the U.S. President. These are important times and there is hope yet.

I cannot believe how lucky I am to live in these times. Of course things are tough and war plagues us as does the ever mutating financial crisis. But we are living in a time where a big change could be on it's way - in the form of America's first black presidential candidate and the mere possibility that he could win.

I grew up with history books talking about Martin Luther King and how that fight just couldn't be won. This time, it's not about black and white which is amazing to think - have we hopefully on some level moved on from that?

And of course no one is saying that Obama is perfect but what he is - is DIFFERENT.

I feel like it's my country that was voting. Thank God George Bush is on his way out, because maybe we might find a way to put things back on track towards right.

Come on Obama! Though he makes me say cheesy things - I'll let that slide.
