Weddings - Some observations


an angelic smile
on the face of his lovely bride
the groom is ecstatic

the fairyland feel
twinkling stars and soft music
a garden wedding

the bride's dress sparkles
as she dances the polka
the spotlight is on her

the flower girls skip
to the music showering
confetti on all

A unique three tier cake
That took ages and patience
Is one of its kind

smiles and champagne
flow freely as guests mingle
and enjoy the party

the last such occasion
took place thirty years ago
may this one be happier


PS: Inspired by the Royal Wedding
