So there was a wedding today

Half the 416expat team really wanted to get up early and to the Mall to watch the wedding firsthand (don’t act like you don’t know what wedding I’m talking about).  The other half of our dynamic duo wanted to run as far as possible in the opposite direction. In the end we did reach a compromise.

We didn’t quite make it to the Mall (not for lack of trying – they had the area locked down by the time we got there) but instead went to Hyde Park and watched the proceedings on massive screens with many many other folks.

After the ceremony we beat it out of the West End to hang out in the East End, in Shoreditch‘s Queen of Hoxton.  We spent the rest of the day enjoying the festivities with a jug of Pimms and some good friends, surrounded by hipsters in low-irony mode.

All in all it was a fabulous day with great weather. One of us (not mrs416expat) actually admitted that today was one of their favourite days in London.  How cool is that?

On our way to the Mall...shortly to be redirected by men in funny hats

We joined the masses headed to Hyde Park instead...

The Royal Port-O-Potties

Not the London Eye...but a cool ferris wheel!

Sun's out and people are excited!

People had Kung Fu Panda Periscopes...not sure where those came from

Time to escape the West end and head East. The Queen of Hoxton's rooftop patio

Excellent entertainment

Delicious Pimms - with mint, strawberries, limes and cucumber

Not a bad way to spend April 29th 2011

  1. Hey, I was up at 3:00 a.m. the day of the wedding and enjoyed it! Only thing was, I had to go to work about 20 minutes before the happy couple appeared on the balcony!!!!! It was sad to miss that!

    Wow, you are sooooooooooooo lucky to be at the wedding … sitting on a roof top drinking Pimms … just think, it is a part of history and you were there!!!

    We are very pleased that ??? said they enjoyed the day too!
