Charlotte, our uber lovely bakery manager is now Mrs Drakesmith. Congratulations Charlotte! It was a really beautiful day- Charlotte arrived on horse (the handsome piebald Starky) & rustic cart at the tiny country church just down the road from us in Pulham.
Everyone knew each other in some way & it was just so- well, properly local and rural. It was a great priviledge to be invited and super nice that we all share so many friends together.Matt & I are truly beginning to feel part of the Dorset fabric now- we’ve been here 6 years & have loved the sense of community we’ve discovered.
Charlotte’s dress was made locally & was simple yet stunning.Her hand tied bouquet was made by her gran & contained ears of corn, blackberries & bright red hips. It could have been a scene from Tess of the D’Ubervilles.
That was Saturday. After much dancing, drinking & general revellry Sunday was -hmmm.. a little bit slow to get started.
We headed off with pals, Mal & Rak & Ollie the German Shepherd to Durdle Door & lazed around in the sun & swam.It was lush to see so many people swimming & generally soaking up the last ray’s of the ‘summer’ we didn’t quite have this year. There was a really mellow feel to the ‘Door’ yesterday & I’m glad we fought the hangovers & made the trek down there.it was one of those days that was so impossibly beautiful, especially after coming back up the steep stone steps to the car park & looking back over the sea to Portland-breathtaking.
We’re now a breath away from going live with our new website & mail order service.The tins are due in tomorrow & we can’t wait to get going with it all. We’ve already got lots of pre orders for tins so we’re hoping it’ll take off & help pay for all the animal feed/ other Honeybuns – Naish Farm expenses!
Speak soon, wishing everyone a luscious week.
