Twitter Wedding Album

Recently a bunch of our good Twitter friends took to posting photos from their wedding day. I thought it would be nice to gather them all in one place, and here seemed as good a place as any.

I was offline at the time of the tweets, so if I’ve missed anyone out, please tell me. Also if, in my haste, I’ve made any mistakes. We’ll start with ours, just because.

@wombat37 & @little_mavisscan0014aI did have a copy of this where I’d Photoshopped the check suit out and moved us closer together, but now I rather like this undoctored one. Isn’t Mary a bobby-dazzler?

 @ajonesieajonesieAmanda doesn’t look like a filthy-minded Whovian who likes crack jokes, does she? She looks all pretty and innocent.

 @alliterative & @avensarahavensarahOur gorgeous Canadian chums. I do like Mark’s hair, with its hint of a groovy ponytail. Aven looking drop-dead gorgeous.

@captain_doodle & @shelley279doodle The legendary Captain himself and Shelley looking as pretty as hell. I’m hoping that perspective is at play here. Otherwise, he isn’t half tiny.

@edinburghjoedinburghjo

This is perhaps my favourite outfit of the lot – I WANT that hat! Presumably, @HardyDuncan is behind the camera.

@Dustmotes & @FBishWifeFBishWifeConfession time? I’ve not actually met @dustmotes or @FBishWife yet, but I couldn’t resist posting such a lovely photo. It looks like it came out of Vogue or something. I shall now seek them out and click their ‘Follow’ buttons.

@IronThighsironthighs2 Oh-oh, who let Rachel loose with a knife?… eek, watch your kilt, Kevin!

@JaneGothjanegoth Simon and Jane getting that windswept and interesting look. Love the bouquet.

@LittleBit_BodLittleBit_BodThe woman whom I shall always know as “Bod” looking stunning, with Jay who is also, erm, stunning.

@Snowgirl1972 & @Thom_Whitethom_whiteThe lovely Helen, inventor of Snowgirl Sauce, in an absolutely beautiful dress. How pleased does Thom look?

@White76white76Shona, just shorter than @little_mavis at 4’11”, and Mike, hugely taller than me at 6’2”. Brilliant smiles, eh?

@DaveTreadwell and his AmydavetreadwellA love made in Heaven. And Photoshop.

A final thought – ALL of the women in these photos are drop-dead, mind-meltingly beautiful. Perhaps this shows that I am extremely shallow, and only follow good-lookers. Or perhaps it shows that every woman is strikingly bonny on her wedding day. I’ll let you decide.

PRRRRZZZZZVVVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

DSCF1050 Car flags everywhere! It can only be the the World Cup. The cheery fluttering of the cross of St. George in the seemingly daily sunshine inspires and entertains. Even The Womcar is not immune, as evidenced by the jaunty photograph over on the right there.

This World Cup may eventually be remembered for a noisy bit of plastic rather than whoever eventually wins it (please God England please), That’s right, I’m talking about the vuvuzela, the one-note cacophony of noise that has enveloped every match played in South Africa. The racket has polarised opinion amongst the watching public, between “Oh how colourful and typically African!” and “Aaaarrrgghh make it stop make it stop!” The noise it makes, for those of you who have been time-travelling to the 117th Century? See the title of this post, and the Wikipedia article shortly after the tournament started.

I suppose I ought to mention the football. As I write, each of the teams has played at least once, and this greatly anticipated carnival of excitement has been decidedly ho-hum. The first fourteen or so games were typified by tappy tappy sideways passing, and unadventurous play, probably born out of a fear of defeat. Then, in the fifteenth game, Chile took the field and proceeded to attack, albeit they only won one-nil. Since then, the others seem to have woken up a little, Argentina looking impressive. The biggest laugh so far? Spain dominating hugely against Switzerland yet contriving to lose one-nil.

England’s first match against the USA seemed to be going very well, until Robert Green in the England goal chose exactly the wrong moment to suddenly realise he might have left the gas on back at home. Here are the goals from the game, presented in stunning Legovision.
