On Friday I was off to the north of Northumberland, where the scenery is wonderful. I am here for my niece's wedding tomorrow. This is the superb view from my bedroom window, where I am staying with my cousins.
Here is my niece, Emily, and her new husband, David, in the Threshing Barn at Doxford Barns. These barns have been renovated and make a great place for a wedding, being full of character.
The bridegroom's family photo just beat the rain.
However, the bride and her family kept dry, here in the Great Hall!
Cousin Oliver watches my brother, John, with his daughters Emily, the bride and Harriet, her chief bridesmaid.
Back at Doddington, the three cousins, Oliver, Sally and Jonathan are in the orchard. It has been such a good weekend, catching up on family news.
A long-time family friend, Susan, was staying at the house too, which was great fun.
Meanwhile Shannon is working on her best photographic smile, as she and Andy have spent a quiet few days at Souppes.
