The Ultimate Gin Wedding

Friday, Oct 20, 2017

The Gin world just keeps on expanding and expanding, I don’t know about you but I seem to find a “favourite” new Gin every month! Not only does a particular Gin taste one way with normal tonic, you can add another dimension by adding different tonics and different fruits. I don’t claim to be a Gin Connoisseur but I definitely have a good understanding of a well-made Gin, I just like what I like and trust my pallet.

The Benjamin's Special Day

Wednesday, Dec 22, 2010

The special parts of my day

One of the best parts of preparing our wedding was the table names. My husband and I visited places that were special to us, especially beaches. We took pebbles and stones from these places and with white paint and a steady hand, named our tables after places we loved, Bredon Hill, Three Cliffs Bay and Sousa beach, this one was where James proposed to me.

This gave our tables a personal touch and we were able to put the stones in our garden at home after to remind us of our special day. Doing something like this adds a unique touch to your day and makes it your own.
